Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract / Leaf Extract contains many nutrients and a lot of them act as antioxidants and hence help to defend damages of skin and hair caused by free radicals. Due to its capability to reduce inflammation and its wound and burn healing, antibacterial, cleansing, detoxification, anti-dandruff and sebum regulation properties we use it in some of our shampoos, conditioners and scalp treatments. It helps with greasy hair and irritated scalp. It improves hair feel and makes the hair looking health and shiny. Another benefit is its ability to counter alopecia or hair loss. Studies have shown that nettle extract is capable to block DHT (Dihydrotestosterone - an offshoot of testosterone) and hence has the potential to stimulate hair growth and promote healthier, thicker hair strands.
