This product is made up of 17 different essential oils and herbs that work together to promote hair growth (when applied to the scalp). It can also be applied directly to the hair to seal in moisture. It pairs well with Oyin Handmade's Leave in Conditioner Spray & Moisture Love's Kindred Spirit's styling cream. When using those products - first spray your clean strands with leave-in conditioner. Then apply your cream. And finally, seal in all that moisture with Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil.
