A working title for this shampoo bar was "Magic Green Shampoo" but my eldest son (who has just finished reading all of the Harry Potter books) argued that all magic should be in Latin. So here's "Capilli Recrescrite!" - a very green and lovely shampoo based on my Formula 42 shampoo bar.
I've replaced the orange juice and orange peel from Formula 42 with lime juice and lime peel. Lime juice is beneficial in promoting hair growth. It has been used to treat baldness, hair thinning and hair loss problems for many years due to the high levels of Vitamin C found in limes.
I've added three new green, hair-helping ingredients: wheatgrass, spirulina and pumpkin seed powders. Wheatgrass will help your hair grow faster due to the presence of vitamins B12 and C, iron, and iodine; they strengthen your hair follicles, thus preventing breakage and hair fall. The vast range of minerals discovered in spirulina, like iron and chromium are significant to the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails. The healthy fats or omega fatty acids contained in spirulina play a major role in preserving the shininess of the hair and decreasing skin inflammation. Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C. In addition, the seeds contain beneficial nutrients like zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron. Perhaps most important to those suffering from hair loss, the seeds contain cucurbitin, a unique amino that may be responsible for pumpkin seeds' effects on hair growth.
