It also has anti-inflammatory properties similar to aloe vera,” she explains. “It contains betalains and phenolic compounds, along with high levels of antioxidants, that help relieve an itchy scalp while also stimulating healthy hair growth” She also notes that the vitamin E in prickly pear oil can deeply condition hair. “The fatty acids and protein in the oil restore hair’s natural shine, making it smooth and glossy, and improving overall hair health.”
