At Frederick Benjamin, we pride ourselves on harnessing nature's best solutions to formulate our hair care and styling products. Our key ingredients reinvigorate the scalp and restore softness and natural shine to textured hair. In a world of full of chemically-enriched alternatives, we've gone to the source to find what really works, instead of just trying to synthesize it. We want you not only to enjoy our products but to also not have to worry about what they could potentially be doing to you.
So we use nettle (properly known as urtica dioica or stinging nettles) in our shampoo, conditioner and styling creme. Used as a hair loss treatment by the ancient Greeks, nettle has been long known for its wide range of hair benefits-- with a vast history of medicinal uses. From allergies to acne, nettles has been applied to a range of skin issues. Your hair can only be as good as what it grows out of so we like to treat the root cause: the scalp. Nettle is rich in iron and vitamin K (among many other vitamins, minerals, and proteins) allowing it to stimulate blood flow to the scalp and promote hair growth. It also works in combination with our other active natural oils (more posts to come soon) to treat and re-hydrate the scalp and restore softness and shine to hair.
