If you care about the products you’re putting onto your hair and scalp, it’s time to ditch traditional shampoo and conditioner and turn to essential oils. The decades of marketing you’ve been exposed to since you were younger have convinced you that detergent (they call it shampoo) is good for your hair, and we realize it can be difficult to know where to start in order to achieve a foam-free future with oil-based hair cleansing. 

We were there once ourselves, and it’s our mission to help as many people as we can understand the downfalls of shampoo so they can cleanse their hair without detergent and get far better results. Here, we’ll be going over evening primrose oil for hair, one of our key ingredients in Hairstory New Wash. Read on to learn all about how it adds to the benefits of cream cleansing.

The Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil for Your Hair

Evening primrose essential oil is extracted from seeds of the flower and has been used for centuries, most commonly in Native American communities. It is primarily composed of essential fatty acids, like linoleic acid, gamma-linoleic, and glutamine – all important nutrients that promote strong, healthy hair.

While there are many potential benefits evening primrose oil can provide for hair and the scalp, this essential oil is known best for stimulating growth when used in moderate amounts. Many products that contain evening primrose oil, like Hairstory Original New Wash, are great for managing hair loss as a result of scalp conditions.. evening primrose oil for hair can also:

  • Fight dandruff

  • Treat scalp inflammation

  • Improve hair texture

  • Strengthen and nourish hair

How to use Evening Primrose Oil

There are two ways to add primrose oil products into your daily routine. Evening primrose essential oil supplements can be taken in the form of capsules, but we recommend a topical application like Hairstory Original New Wash that can be used daily, even on colored hair.  Evening primrose oil not only helps to nourish dry hair and scalp, it also is in our New Wash formula to help remove soil and build-up from the hair.  So many benefits, order Hairstory New Wash today!
