****PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING****
Due to Covid-19 and the resulting uptick in online shopping, I am SWAMPED with orders at the moment and am currently on a 7 business day (Monday-Friday) average turn-around time. So if you order on a Monday, the 7th business day would be the following Wednesday. Even if you are only ordering 1-2 items, there may be on average 100+ products in line ahead of your order that have to be hand made and that is what is causing the wait.
If you do not wish to wait, please contact us about purchasing our order rush option, which will bring your order to the front of the production line.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience; the orders have to be hand made, packed, labeled and shipped and I am working around the clock to get orders done as quickly as possible. As soon as this crisis abates, I will happily resume our normal fast turn-around times.
This hair and scalp jelly is made especially for thin edges but can also be used on the remainder of scalp and head hair. It contains fenugreek, stinging nettle, ginger, lavender, chamomile and shea and is thick and emollient with a consistency similar to salve or ointment.
Due to the thick and coating nature of this product, it is not recommended for low porosity hair.

Texture: This product has a texture similar to petroleum jelly, but is not made with petroleum jelly.
Look: Color May vary a bit from batch to batch; typically a medium greenish or brownish color. Bits of herbs/botanicals may be visible throughout.
Scent: Deeply herbaceous and a bit smoky; characteristic of Fenugreek, Castor oil and Carnauba wax.

MELT WARNING- Salves/Jellies, Hairdressings, Butters and other semi-solid to solid products are subject to melting when exposed to temperatures above 72 degrees. Depending on the season/temperature, this product may melt in transit to you. The product may still be fine to use, it just might lose its texture. In most cases, refrigeration or freezing for about 15-30 minutes may be sufficient to re-solidify it.
Despite our best efforts, there is no way for us to prevent melting unless maybe the items are shipped refrigerated overnight, which would cost approximately $30 extra in shipping.
To avoid melting and disappointment, please be mindful of the temperature where you are having this item shipped as we cannot control temperatures inside postal vehicles or inside your mailbox or wherever else your package may be delivered. For best results, you will want to avoid this product sitting outside of a climate-controlled environment (ie: inside a mailbox) for too long.
Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (and) Hydrogenated Castor Oil (and) Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Powder, Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile) Flower Powder, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Trigonella Foenum-Graecum (Fenugreek) Seed Powder, Urtica dioica (Stinging Nettle) Leaf Powder, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil; may contain: Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton).
NOTE: It is not an ingredient, but we do use unbleached cotton cheesecloth to strain most of the botanicals out of the jelly, so please avoid if allergic to cotton.
You simply apply a small amount to your fingertips. A little goes a long way, so no need to over do it and I KNOW it can be tempting. Massage the jelly into your scalp with the pads of your fingers (or even better, with a battery-operated scalp massager) for 2-3 minutes, 3-4 times per week. You massage the scalp each day, even when not using this product. You may also apply some of the Jelly to your hair if you like.
After applying, you may gently brush hair from scalp to ends of hair to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair. You may also use this as a hot oil treatment (concentrating on your ends) before washing it out, but you only need a tiny bit, like a quarter sized amount – use too much and it may be harder to wash it completely out. If you have drier hair (as found in types 3 and 4 hair) you may leave this in, but it is recommended that you should wash your hair/scalp at least once a week to clarify hair follicles.
A four ounce jar can last about 1-3 months depending on amount used and how often the product is used.
WARNING: *This product is not for use by women who are pregnant; consult your physician before use if nursing. It is also not for those who are allergic to an ingredient/s in the product.
*All jars contain 4 ounces though not filled to the top. 4 ounces is about where the indented part of the top of the jar meets the rest of the jar wall.
