1. What is Hair Fertilizer?
A Hair Fertilizer is a scalp moisturizer which is applied to the scalp directly. It is a thick hair cream that comes in a tube. On applying, you will feel a tingly sensation over your scalp. Some curlies say the cream smells like petroleum jelly, which is natural since it is one of the primary ingredients of the cream. The other ingredients include peppermint oil, African shea butter, menthol, lanolin, and some herbs. Over time you will get used to their smell.
Apart from the tingling sensation, peppermint is responsible for increasing circulation. This improvement can result in increased hair growth and hair fall reduction.
Recently, Dr Kari Williams commented that the presence of Petroleum Jelly when asked about the product. He said that Petroleum Jelly could make your hair appear smooth and shiny. However, this is just a temporary shine. Moreover, the jelly can lead to the clogging of hair follicles after its accumulation over the scalp. This may turn the hair fall situation even worse rather than improving it.
2. The Claim of the Product
The Virgin Hair Fertilizer claims to improve hair growth by increasing the blood circulation to your scalp. It is advised to be used daily over your hair and scalp for the deep conditioning. The indicated use will stimulate hair growth, clear dandruff, and conditions your damaged hair.
