Sea Moss for Scalp & Hair:

Mermoss Sea Moss is gentle enough for your skin but strong enough to strengthen hair! It soothes the scalp and fortifies the hair with a healthy dose of minerals and hydration. Vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids available in Caribbean sea moss help grow hair, repair & condition the damaged hair and make it appear thicker with regular use both topically and when eaten.

Sea Moss has Minerals for Damaged Hair

Sea Moss is rich in iodine, iron, and calcium. Iron prevents anaemia which is the major cause of hair loss. Hair loss is observed even in the case of Zinc deficiency. As it is a rich source of zinc , it nourishes and strengthens hair when you apply sea moss gel as a conditioner. It also plays a vital role in the growth and repair of hair tissues, keeping the oil glands around the follicles working properly. It may also be helpful in lessening hair fall out by acting on dihydrotestosterone hormone. The Omega-3 fatty acids in Mermoss are healthy fats and prevent dry and flaky scalp and skin.

Sea Moss for Shiny Hair & Growth

Biotin is one of the best known vitamins abundant in sea moss for hair growth. Your hair needs a variety of nutrients to grow healthy hair. Sea moss soothes scalp, fortifies the hair fibres, adds moisture and smoothness, strengthens and enhances shine in hair.

Hair requires Vitamin A for hair growth which helps skin glands to produce sebum which keeps hair healthy and moisturizes the scalp. Collagen and Vitamin C also help to add vital vitamins to hair.

How to Use for Scalp & Hair

There are many different ways to use for scalp and hair:

PRE WASH: Place some sea moss gel in a small bowl. Heat for a few seconds to soften and liquify (either few seconds in microwave or add a spoon of hot water and stir well). Part hair in sections and use nylon brush end to apply to scalp. Various oils of your choice can also be added. Massage in and leave for 20 minutes and shampoo and condition as normal. 

CONDITION: After shampooing hair, and a spoonful of seamoss to equal amounts of your favourite deep conditioner and coat your hair. Wrap with a towel or shower cap and allow to absorb for 20mins and rinse as normal.

DETANGLER for curls: Add to spring water in a spray bottle (approx 1tbsp to 500ml water) and spray whilst detangling hair. Can be left in to define curls or as pre wash treatment.

To clean Mermoss mask brush: Rinse brush immediately after use with mild soap and squeeze out excess moisture in a towel. Leave to dry flat.

Beard Treatment for Men

For all the same reasons above, sea moss can be used on beards to help thicken and even out growth. Massage into beard prior to a shower using the nylon end of the mermoss face brush and apply to rest of the face to get added skin care benefits. Leave for 10-20 minutes and shower off.

Yoni V-Steam for women

Our Raw moss can be used for feminine wellness too. A handful of fresh moss along with other herbs works great for detoxing and balancing.

Steam Directions

In a large pot place a handful of raw moss, herbs such as hibiscus, rose petals, orange peel, calendula (there are many herbs with different benefits you can add so please research!). Fill with water and bring to a soft boil. Allow to steep for a few minutes and check the steam is not too hot. Place a suitable bowl in your toilet and place half the water in there. Remove underwear and sit above the bowl and drape a large blanket around you. Relax and enjoy. When steam dies down, repeat with the rest of the water.
