I love this hair conditioner bar! In combination with my Yucca Shampoo Bar, it is the perfect high end hair care system that is friendly to the planet and makes my hair look fantastic. No need to waste on shipping water with this low packaging option that offers very high end conditioning in a long lasting and budget friendly bar.
Made with the best hair conditioning oils, butters and conditioners to increase manageability, help smooth tangles, give strength to hair shaft, smooth hair cuticles giving hair shine and softness without weighing hair down.
Easy to manage and travel with, can be used as a wash out conditioner or leave in hair conditioner. I use it both ways. I apply in the shower all over and afterwards smooth it over the ends of my hair and the back. Can be used to treat damaged hair ends between shampoos too.
Here is a brief explanation of the ingredients I’ve chosen:
This is an extremely gentle hair conditioner bar. Adds a wonderful bouncy conditioning to hair while allowing for easy combing. This does double duty by bringing all the other ingredients together in a long lasting, conditioning bar. This ingredients is accepted by Whole Foods.
With natural squalene, phytosterols and antioxidants, Mango butter is a natural alternative to other conditioning chemicals when combined with fatty alcohols. It reduces breakage and controls frizz while providing healthy moisture for the scalp. It also provides a protective effect against UV radiation.
My food grade cocoa butter retains the hint of chocolate retain the phytochemicals and other beneficial elements that help nourish, strengthen and smooth hair.
This fatty alcohol is a conditioning, smoothing ingredient that boosts the power of the healthy, hair nourishing oils I’ve included. Leaves hair with a silky feel.
Another fatty alcohol that makes the nourishing ingredients available to the hair, helping it feel soft and conditioned.
This oil is my primary exotic oil. Studies found that it “effectively increased the combability by reducing the required force down to 1.5% of the force initially needed for untreated mixed race hair.” In a study published by Personal Care magazine, Abyssinian oil was found to be an even more effective conditioner than Argan oil. Abyssinian oil was found to reduce the number of broken fibers for untreated mixed race hair by 93%. Abyssinian oil has an even higher potential to strengthen the hair fibers against grooming damage shown by reducing the amount of broken fibres down to 10.3 per 10,000 strokes. The results display the benefit that Abyssinian oil offers a high anti-breakage performance desired by many consumers. Furthermore, Abyssinian doubles the amount of shine of hair. https://www.personalcaremagazine.com/story/10910/comparison-of-abyssinian-oil-and-argan-oil-in-hair-care
A good conditioner for a bar as it is smoother and glidier for running through your hair.
Distearoylethyl Dimonium Chloride
This ingredient is ECOcert and COSMOS certified. It provides conditioning and detangling, while making hair more easily combed through.
Honeyquat adds the moisture of honey without the stickiness. Due to it’s positive charge, it is attracted to hair and smooths down the follicles.
Hydrolyzed Oat Protein
I make this myself, basically breaking down the oats with potassium hydroxide and then rebalancing the Ph using vinegar and Citric Acid creating hydrolyzed oat Protein. This just makes the protein in the oatmeal more available for your hair. It is a silky feel and adds slip.
Dimethicone & Cyclomethicone
A little bit of silicone in a conditioning bar is very helpful to your hair, helping it comb without breakage and smoothing down the hair follicles so they don’t catch and tare.
Essential Oil Blend
Frankincense, Orange Wax, Amyris, Rosemary and Mandarin
Jojoba is actually a wax and is pretty close to our own natural moisturizer. By adding this, we add the oils we’ve taken away, only they are clean, smooth oil and not gritting or dusty, which harms shine.
Argan is a great addition to a hair conditioner bar. Similar to Abyssinian, it helps make hair shinier, healthier and easier to comb
This Vitamin B supplement is well know for being great for hair, making it stronger, shinier and conditioned.
Like nail growth serums, my conditioner contains Lecithin because it offers the same benefits to hair. It naturally smooths fly away hair and restores moisture to areas of brittleness.
Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol
This broad spectrum preservative protects the hair conditioner bar from mold or bacteria in the wet environment of the bathroom. Keep as dry as possible between uses.
This helps the preservatives work.
This is a great anti-oxidant, good for your hair and good at keeping the oils in the bar fresh.
