Comfrey Root is a herb that is rich in fatty acids that stimulate blood flow to the scalp, nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, to promote healthy hair growth and improve the overall condition of hair. (Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve Company) I bought this herb from after I attended a natural hair event in the Bay Area and heard that it has great slip for the hair. I wanted to try this along with the burdock and see how it would affect the smoothness of my hair. When I used it in a home-made curl cream that I am still in the process of formulating, I was very happy with the slip and feel of it.
I purchased burdock root through Mountain Rose Herbs. If you are into comparative shopping, try a Google search of burdock root and then click the “Shopping” tab. Let me know if you find this ingredient locally or for less $$$!
I would love to know how you use this ingredient! ❤ Ally
