It is a fruit with a hard shell that protects an abundance of seed-like berries called arils within. Aril is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Even though aril and the seed within is the most consumed part of pomegranate, the whole fruit contains beneficial nutrients that can be used for various health benefits. Including repairing damaged hair and providing that smooth texture that encourages hair to grow long and strong.

The fresh scent of the pomegranate is citrusy and sweet at the same time. It will relax and soothe you with every application and leave your hair feeling fresh and healthy.
