Essential and Carrier Oils For Your Hair

The owner of Flourishing Tresses first began this natural hair care line after she started reading the labels on her hair care products and realized that the ingredients were doing more harm than good to her tresses. It was her mission as a natural hair care company owner  to only use natural products and allow her customers to understand what they are putting in their hair. Education of what should be in your hair will actually help you in your healthy hair journey and allow your tresses to get the nutrients it needs. Below is a list of all the ingredients that we put into our hair care product line and what the benefits are of each ingredient.  This is a list of what is in Flourishing Tresses natural hair care line and some of the benefits of each product listed.


Tee Tree Oil— Tee tree has anti-fungal and anti-viral properties that alleviate the scalp from dryness, itch and dandruff. This essential oil keeps your scalp healthy while also moisturizing it.

Peppermint Oil—This oil is not only refreshing and leaves your scalp having a good tingling sensation but it also stimulates the blood in the scalp thus promoting hair growth.

Cetyl Alcohol—This is not an actual alcohol that is a chemical and it most certainly does not dry out your hair like real alcohol. This ingredient is derived from coconut oil and other natural oils. Cetyl alcohol is a lubricant that is used in our shampoo and conditioner to make the hair soft and smooth and bind the oils together.

Shikakai—This ancient Indian herb means “hair fruit” and that is exactly what it is, fruit for the hair. This plant is a natural cleanser that is used to cleanse the scalp but it still leaves your natural oils, unlike sulfate shampoos that strip your hair. Shikakai is a mild cleanser that has a naturally low pH, and is a natural detangler that helps promote growth, and aids in preventing hair loss.

Burdock—-This plant increases the shine and moisture of the hair and gives limp hair the body that is needs without making hair that already has volume too full.

Vegetable Glycerin— This ingredient is a hygroscopic which means that it is able to absorb water from its surroundings. This is important because it puts the moisture back into the hair making the hair soft and smooth.

Olive Oil—This is oil is fantastic for moisturizing your tresses and helps fight against split ends especially in cold winter months when the hair is much more prone to breakage do to the lack of moisture in the air. Putting this oil on the scalp also helps with dandruff and dry spots on the scalp when it is rubbed directly onto the head.

Avocado Oil— This is oil is derived from the avocado fruit, and is perfect for a conditioner because it has vitamin A, E, D and potassium in it. This is one of the best oils that you hair can have in it because it nourishes the hair giving it extra moisture that textured dry hair needs to thrive.

Horsetail—- This mineral rich herb is great for conditioners because it contains silica which is an important protein for the hair that helps it repair damaged follicles. Horsetail gives the hair the luster and shine that it needs to grow long and strong.

Marshmallow  RootThis herb softens the hair while providing it with slip which makes it perfect to moisturize the hair.

Slippery Elm Bark—-Slippery Elm Bark is great for hair growth because it strengthens the follicles and helps rid the hair of split ends and hair loss.

Lavender —- Not only does this plant smell amazing but it is great for your tresses.  This plant promotes hair growth and controls hair loss and treats track alopecia.

Shea Butter—This is a rich source of moisture  because it has rejuvenating minerals and vitamins. This butter helps to keep your tresses feeling soft and shiny.

Coconut Oil—This is the ultimate oil for textured hair because it benefits your tresses more than any other oil. This oil penetrates the hair instead of just laying on top of the hair which allows this protein filled oil to reconstruct poor damaged follicles.

Castor Oil—-Castor oil comes from the seed of the castor plant. Rubbing this oil improves the circulation in the scalp therefore allowing the hair to grow in areas where hair might be missing due to chemicals or undue stress from tugging and pulling and causing track alopecia.

Grape See oil—This oil is made from the extracts of grape seeds and is a light weight oil the gives the hair moisture and shine without weighing the hair down.

Almond Oil—This oil comes from the pressing of almonds and is best used on the scalp to promote growth especially on areas that are missing hair due to chemicals or track alopecia.

Wheat Germ OilWheat germ oil increases circulation in the scalp and stimulates hair growth.

Lemongrass Oil—This oil helps people with dry scalp and oily hair while soothing the scalp.

Vitamin E—This nutrient helps to prevent hair loss by nourishing the scalp and it prevents gray hair from forming.

Organic Aloe Vera Juice—Aloe Vera fights frizzy hair and it helps to seal the cuticles of the hair.


Pectin—This increases the thickness of the product and allows for all the oils to combine together naturally. Pectin comes from the inner portion of a citrus fruit.

Lavender Oil—- Not only does this plant smell amazing but it is great for your tresses.  This plant promotes hair growth and controls hair loss and treats track alopecia.

Orange Oil—This essential oil comes from an orange and offers a wonderful natural fragrance and is also great for regulating the production of sebum in the scalp.
