What are Nettle Leaves?
Nettle, commonly known as Stinging Nettle, is a member of the mint family. It’s known for the spiny hair-like growths on its leaves that contain chemicals such as histamine and formic acid, which cause stinging, itching, and redness when touched. Extracts of these leaves contain several vitamins and minerals that can be used to obtain thick, shiny hair.
