PROPERTIES OF OUR NETTLES
Oily hair is often the result of an overproduction of oil by your sebaceous glands. The problem begins at the scalp.
Nettle rebalances the scalp’s oil production for a natural " blotting effect " without drying or stripping. Cultivated using traditional methods without the use of phytosanitary products to protect the plants ecosystem (home to120 living species); nettle was selected for the abundance of natural sebum-regulating active ingredients found in the roots. This active helps to gradually reduce excess sebum production to help keep oily hair cleaner for longer!
