Neem has been used for beautiful hair for centuries. While we're not aware of any clinical studies showing that it helps cover gray hair or minimize hair loss, customers call nearly every week to say how much better their hair looks.
Like our skincare products, the antioxidants in neem probably play a key role in making your hair look and feel better. Scientists have long known that peroxide -- a naturally occurring free radical -- strips the color from growing hair to turn it gray. Neem helps to neutralize that peroxide so hair can return to its natural color without toxic chemicals.
Oxidative stress caused by free radicals also may be involved in hair loss, even male-pattern baldness, according to a 2009 study published by the International Journal of Trichology.
And like skin, our scalps benefit from the botanical extracts in our hair care products.
