Most solid conditioners on the market contain SLS and a chemical called propylene glycol – and their moisturising effect is horribly disappointing.
My solid conditioner bar contains no chemicals. It’s a blend of natural organic ingredients which rinse out easily to leave you with wonderfully glossy bouncy hair.
Organic cocoa butter and shea butter are the star ingredients. They soften and moisturise the hair without weighing it down, and they’re also brilliant for soothing sore scalps.
Plant keratin mimics our hair’s natural strength-building protein. It penetrates every hair follicle, helping to maintain moisture balance and providing elasticity, volume and bounce.
Vitamin E oil restores lost moisture to dry damaged hair, aided by the organic compound polyquaternium which allows hair to absorb moisture from the air. It’s also an excellent detangler. Glycerine, a humectant, carries moisture to the hair to keep it supple.
Behentrimonium methosulfate may sound scary, but it’s actually a mild, vegetable-based wax that stops the oils and butters from making hair oily and flat. And, despite its alarming name, palm-free stearic acid is not an acid – it’s a thickening agent derived from coconut oil.
Finally, there’s panthenol – part of the vitamin B5 group, which increases hair’s elasticity and boosts its moisture retention abilities.
How to use your solid hair conditioner bar:
It’s easy. After shampooing your hair, simply stroke the bar through wet hair. To soothe a dry itchy scalp, just rub the bar over your scalp. Rinse out and you’re ready to style as normal.
