Emu Oil

Derived from a substance that is produced by the Emu Bird.
Emu oil has been used for thousands of years in natural medicine and has internal and external healing properties. It is a deep penetrating natural moisturizer which penetrates the hair shaft / scalp quickly and easily. Once emu oil enters the hair's root, it acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory property helps to stimulate the hair's natural growing ability. Easily absorbed and does not sit on the top layer of the hair strand. Leaves the hair soft and shiny. Conditions and hydrates the scalp also. Studies have shown faster hair growth with the use of this oil. Known as the hair healer it awakens follicles with deep penetration! Excellent for moisturizing scalp and skin. Softens and smoothes while it conditions!
According to Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., and Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine, hair follicles become 20% more active when emu oil is applied and hair thickens when emu oil is applied over time. The effects are cumulative. This suggest that Emu Oil plays a part in simulating growth by increasing scalp circulation.
