Breaking down these potent ingredients

Hibiscus Flower helps to prevent premature greying. The saponins and organic acid in Hibiscus promote not only cleansing but also shedding of dead skin cells. It helps prevent hair fall and fosters hair growth. 

Honey is a natural antioxidant, rich in vitamins and minerals, so it leaves hair shinier and feeling softer. It seals in moisture, adds thickness to hair and helps achieve more moisture.

Sweet Almond Oil helps damaged and dull hair become shinier & stronger. It’s lighter than many other oils, which makes it excellent for leave-in protection. Because of its lightness, it is also excellent for finer hair that gets easily weighed down. It contains proteins and vitamins A, B and E, all of which help add shine to dull, dry hair, working as a sealant.   

Coconut Oil helps to restore the protein from inside the hair, making smooth and shiny. It promotes silky curls without greasy or weighed down hair, adding the perfect amount of sheen and smoothness to tame unruly hair. It will not only smooth away flyaways and frizz, but will also create a protective barrier to shield your hair strands from harsh elements.

Olive Oil has a major moisturising effect, it adds softness and strengthens hair from the root to the tip. It penetrates the hair strand, nourishing it from the inside as it locks moisture in. As the olive oil penetrates the hair shaft, it feels softer and smoother.

Hydrolyzed Soy Protein is a water-soluble protein derived from soy that strengthens and mend hair fibers. It increases hair’s ability to hold moisture while adding shine and smoothness.
