Cette huile a sauvée ma chevelure après un accouchement.
Elle m’a permise de ralentir puis stopper ma chute.
Puis la repousse a été immédiate.
Je la recommande pour les femmes allaitantes car elle ne contient aucun produits chimiques.
Merci pour votre article et vos precieux conseils.


super efficace pour l’avoir utilisée pour mes cheveux!!!


Cette huile est juste un miracle!!!!

Elle a sauvé mes cheveux suite à une chute très sévère avec des trous sur mon cuir chevelu.
Au bout de 3 appliquations ma chute c’est arrêtée net. mes trous se sont colmatés et j’ai plein de repousse partout.

Je suis troooooop contente. merci



Cette huile est jute une pure merveille : je l’utilisais à la base pour ma chute de cheveux qui s’est arrêter en 3 application ; j’en revenais pas…
Puis je l’ai tester par hasard sur mes sourcils dégarnies: le résultat ne s’est pas fait attendre les trous se sont comblés et mon cil gauche (qui était court à cause des épilations à répétition par rapport à celui de droite) s’est allonger . je recommande à 2000%!!!!



Je tenais à partager mon expérience d’utilisation de l’huile de serpent: Elle a effectivement beaucoup de vertus pour les cheveux. Etant 100% naturelle, il n’y a aucune inquiétude à l’utiliser. Elle est également utilisée sur le visage mais perso, je n’ai pas essayer.
En tout les cas pour les cheveux elle est top: cheveux plus soyeux, disciplinés, plus résistant. Elle accélère la pousse d’une manière impressionnante.
