Sage and lemongrass have heaps of benefits for your kinky, curly or coily hair!


Sage and Lemongrass may very well be underrated scents, overlooked, or better yet, under-smelled, because of lovely lavender, but sage and lemongrass also have a sweetly unique and beloved scent. But, besides for offering your hair and audience a new smell to become obsessed with, the two herbs offer tons of support for the scalp, all the way down to the tips of your curls. Let’s have a look at both lemongrass and sage separately, and discover their benefits together. 

 

A little background on Lemongrass 

Lemongrass, which is also referred to as citronella or lemon leaves (yum) is a perennial herb which can be ingested orally, infused in teas, or applied directly to your skin and hair. The herb grows best in subtropical and tropical southeast Asian, African and Australian climates. Similar to lavender, it has also made itself known in the community through its calming and soothing benefits. But that’s just not all!


Why we love Lemongrass for your hair

There’s been a lot of commotion over lemongrass in the scientific community as well, especially when it comes to lemongrass’ medicinal effects on skin and hair. It seems to be that lemongrass has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. The thing is, lemongrass is not just antibacterial, but it’s one of those magic herbs that don’t select which bacteria they want to destroy and which one they feel indifferent to. Lemongrass has the ability to kill almost all the bacterias that can be present on the scalp. This is especially significant for those who are prone to dandruff on the scalp. But that’s not all. 


These properties are also believed to combat hair loss, which is very often caused by inflammation by the root and scalp. When natural products work at fighting bacteria and fungus, then the follicles are free to birth new and natural hair growth. When there is inflammation and bacteria suffocating the follicle, it is blocking the pathway for new hair to grow, and can also cause hair to weaken and fall out more easily. Now you get why Koils by Nature has a whole line celebrating Lemongrass? If your scalp has been acting out, a great place to start is with the Sage and Lemongrass Nourishing Hair & Scalp Growth Oil, to keep both the scalp and hair happy and healthy. Speaking of which, let’s have a closer look at Sage, now that we’ve mentioned it. 


A little background on Sage

Sage, also known as Salvia (which translates as, to heal or to save) is a seriously ancient and praised herb. How else could it be sanctioned with such a holy name as, ‘Sage,’ right? Sage is similar in kind to the mint family, and has been used in religious and spiritual ceremonies for thousands of years. It is native to Asia and the Mediterranean area. Some refer to Sage as the healer, a cleansing herb, both energetic and bacterial, a symbol of wisdom and higher consciousness. The herb is utilized in many ways from teas, to incense, to essential oils, this shrub has truly been around the block! The plant itself is very robust and can grow both indoors and outdoors. So what are the benefits for your scalp and hair, besides for granting wisdom and clarity? Good question.


Sage benefits for your scalp and hair

As you may have already guessed, sage can work wonders on the hair and scalp. Sage leaf and oil is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins A, B and C, and minerals such as calcium and potassium. The sage works hand in hand with the lemongrass to remove bacteria from the scalp, but also provides the scalp and hair follicles with the nutrients it needs to live a healthy and happy lifestyle, AKA promoting healthy hair growth. Sage is especially wonderful for curly and kinky hair, because it helps the hair retain moisture, no matter how tight the curls. One of the best products for curls that feel dry is Koils By Nature Sage & Lemongrass Deep Treatment with Rice Protein. That rice protein works extra hard in keeping all the good moisture inside your coils and curls, so the hair feels soft throughout the week. 


What can we take away from all of this?

At this point, it’s probably not hard to imagine why Koils by Nature has dedicated an entire collection to Sage and Lemongrass. Because we want your curls and coils to not only look great, but smell great and feel great throughout the week. Not so coincidentally, natural ingredients which sooth our skin and hair, also sooth our nerves and mind. 


Have you been recently turned on to either Sage, or Lemongrass, or both? What was your experience with these natural ingredients? We’d love to hear from you!
