Gorgon Hair Oil || Full-Spectrum Rosemary Extract with Cedarwood || 2oz 60mL

$28.00

This highly nourishing, full-spectrum hair oil may be a good fit for those who struggle with: 
  • Imbalanced scalp oil production
  • Dandruff or dry, itchy scalp
  • Poor scalp circulation
  • Some types of hair loss (it can't change stress, hormones, or DNA)
  • Coarse or dry hair
  • Thick or curly hair
  • Frizzies or flyaways

 

And also for those looking for hair care that is:
  • Rich in anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties*
  • A bright, crisp, uplifting scent with an earthy undertone. 
  • Whole-plant infused
  • Minimal ingredients
  • Safely and ethically produced 
In Greek mythology, the Gorgons were three vicious female mythical creatures that lived on an island and possessed the ability to turn a person to stone by looking at them.

They possessed both beautiful and hideous traits, the most famous being their head of coiled snakes instead of hair. Of the three, Medusa is perhaps the most famous of the Gorgons. Few, however, are familiar with the story of how Medusa was only turned into a Gorgon by Athena after she was victimized by Zeus. 

I challenge this notion of demonizing those who have experienced trauma by embracing the untamed and fierce nature of the Gorgon. Not all who gaze upon it can handle the wild beauty of a strong and independent woman who has overcome hidden battles. That is not the fault of the Gorgon.

      Science

      Promising research shows that Rosemary oil can be as effective as the active ingredient in Rogaine at regrowing hair after 6 months of use. (source)*

      Rosemary has also been used to strengthen circulation. We've seen it used to keep hair follicles from being starved of blood supply, dying off, and falling out.*

      Carnosic acid, an active ingredient in Rosemary, healed tissue and nerve damage in one study. This ability to heal nerve endings may rejuvenate nerves in the scalp too, in turn possibly restoring hair growth.*

      Cedarwood essential oil is thought to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that may contribute to dandruff or hair loss.*

      Applying fats like castor oil to the hair on a regular basis helps lubricate the hair shaft, increasing flexibility and decreasing the chance of breakage (source)
