At SBT Seabuckthorn International, we have a wonderful range of hair care products. I use the shampoo and conditioner; I haven’t actually tried the shampoo bar (my hair is heavily colour treated), but a lot of people I know swear by it.

But hair care is a bit of a misnomer. Our hair is actually dead once it grows past the follicle. Like a piece of wood furniture, it can be damaged through misuse or neglect – and protected to some degree from further deterioration – but it cannot be made intrinsically healthier.

Beautiful, sturdy furniture comes from healthy, nourished trees. The same is true of our hair. Seabuckthorn has a proven record of healing and improving both skin and overall health; its transdermal oils soak into the skin, strengthening cells and blood vessels. It is anti-microbial and exceedingly nutritious. Since exclusively using SBT Seabuckthorn shampoo and conditioner, my hair and scalp have been significantly healthier.

Here’s my story:

For years, I had employed a system of alternating between two shampoo/conditioner combos in order to avoid the symptoms (dull, limp hair) associated with product buildup. A few years ago, I was alternating between a mid-price salon brand and our SBT Seabuckthorn shampoo and conditioner, and was having some really distressing problems with my scalp and skin. First, my scalp was so oily that I really had to wash my hair every 12 hours to keep it nice and clean. Second, I was suffering from boils on my neck and around my hairline. Third, I had terrible dandruff. And finally, my hair just never looked very nice. This problem had been ongoing and accelerating over a period of about two years. The funny thing is, I knew how natural, simple and healthy our seabuckthorn products are, but I was so committed to my ‘alternation’ pattern that it took me a long time to abandon my salon shampoo and commit solely to seabuckthorn.

The improvement was not quick, but it was significant. Over a period of about six months, my dandruff improved, my hair got cleaner – shampooing reduced to every two days, rather than every half-day – and most significantly, the boils around my neck disappeared.

Just those improvements thrilled me, but the longer-term benefits proved far more important.

I’ve now been using only SBT Seabuckthorn hair care products on my hair for almost two years. I have never experienced product buildup. My hair (which was almost waist length before) has now grown several inches longer than I’d ever been able to grow it before. And the new growth (two years worth) is shinier and stronger than the older growth. The hot, itchy feeling I frequently experienced during my bad years (which is associated with fungal overgrowth and is considered by some to be a cause of, or correlated to, trichotillomania – compulsive hair pulling) has disappeared. People frequently comment on how shiny and healthy my hair looks.

It’s clear to me that SBT Seabuckthorn shampoo has both contributed to the good health of my scalp and neck, but has also improved the health of my hair at the follicular level.

    Hello, Are you able to post the ingredient listing for both the shampoo and conditioner? Also is it SLS-free? Thanks!

  2. Hi again Sylvie, thanks so much for dropping by and reading.
    I checked out our ingredients page on Seabuckthorn.com, but I guess we don’t have our shampoo ingredients listing up yet!

    I’m looking at my bottle of shampoo and conditioner, and neither has SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate), but I have to check with Head Office before publishing a full ingredients list of the haircare products for you.
    As I mentioned in the other comment, email sales@seabuckthorn.com with any questions or concerns you have about our products. And thanks again for dropping by!

  3. Trichotillomania Treatment says:

    Trichotillomania is another common cause of hair loss in children. This condition is made worse by the fact that it is the child who does this to himself. This condition that causes hair loss in children is considered to be an obsessive compulsive behavior where the child feels the need to pluck his hair consistently. Treating hair loss in children of this type will require relaxation techniques and most likely behavioral therapy. The hair follicles in his condition are not usually damaged and hair will most…
