This is a type of product that I picked up on Amazon a few months ago intended for use with my other hair products. I did use it for this purpose but added other products to the mixture as well at the time. Grapefruit juice, olive oil and some other things were added in for a home made hair remedy to help keep my hair growing and healthy. I think you can use this product for many more things. For instance it works great as a cleanser. It is food grade too so you can use it in some types of baking or cooking regimens. It's handy to have around. Skin and hair is what it says on the title so those are the most useful parts about having this around your house.
