Fushi Organic Evening Primrose Oil for hair:
Fushi Organic Evening Primrose Oil may be capable of nourishing your scalp, and therefore could treat a variety of hair problems. Essential fatty acids are found to be effective in preventing hair breakage, because applying oil directly into the scalp helps to improve the strength of the hair. You can use this oil by rubbing into damp hair as a hair mask, or you can add it to your shampoo.
Applying Fushi Organic Evening Primrose Oil hair mask:
First start by wetting your hair in the shower and dry off excess water so the hair is damp. Pour a small amount of Fushi Organic Evening Primrose Oil into the palm of your hand and massage gently all over the scalp. Next, brush your hair and then wrap your hair in a towel (you will have a better effect if the towel is slightly warmed) and leave in the oil for 15 to 20 minutes. After this you can wash your hair with a light shampoo, and you may not need conditioner as Fushi Organic Evening Primrose Oil will have left your hair much softer and shinier than a conditioner would.
