Why We Use Lemongrass in Our Products

Well for one thing, it’s amazing for our hair!  

Lemongrass is one of our favorite essential oils for keeping the scalp and hair healthy all year long. It can taste and smell like lemon with a sweeter kick to it. Dried, fresh, or transformed into an essential oil, lemongrass contains medicinal properties that have been used for centuries. Lemongrass is rich in folic acid, vitamins A, B, and C, zinc, magnesium, copper, potassium, iron, manganese and calcium, which your scalp and hair will definitely benefit from. 

But what exactly is lemongrass’ function in Dr Locs products? 

Let’s find out! 

How your Locs will Benefit from Lemongrass

Besides for adding an amazing scent to your hair, lemongrass will also add shine and sheen to your growing locs. But that’s not all! 

Here are some ways your hair will benefit from lemongrass essential oil:

Fights off Dandruff- Lemongrass essential oil is famously used to cure dandruff because of its antifungal power. It also works as an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-bacterial agent. Everything we need to keep dandruff at bay and away from our scalp and sprinkling into our locs. 

Strengthens Hair and Hair Follicles- Its hair-strengthening properties strengthen the hair follicles ensuring that your locs appear shiny and healthy. It’s anti-inflammatory properties and high concentration of vitamins and minerals will keep the hair follicles in a healthy state - where not one, but several hair strands grow from. 

Cleanses Hair- Lemongrass is also very effective when it comes to cleaning the hair and scalp. It helps remove any dirt, oil or bacteria that may be clogging the pores, so that your hair care products can work more effectively at nourishing and hydrating your hair.

Promotes hair growth- it can also work as a stimulant, promoting more circulation to the scalp and roots of the hair. With added circulation and less dirt and oil, your follicles are able to more freely produce more hair strands, which can help add volume to hair. 

Controls oil production- its astringent and antiseptic properties help prevent the oil from building up on the scalp and clogging the pores. It promotes a healthy, balanced amount of sebum production so the hair doesn’t feel too dry, or too heavy around the roots. 

Final Thoughts on Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass can be found in Dr Locs Jinan Leave-In Conditioner and has been carefully paired up with other life-giving essential oils like avocado oil, coconut oil and tea tree oil, to ensure your locs stay healthy, hydrated and fresh - even between wash days!
