If you have extremely dry, frizzy and unmanageable hair like me, then ladies, simply washing and conditioning your hair isn’t enough. We need to go that extra mile to care for our tresses, in order for them to look perfect. The basics are obvious – oil your hair with a nourishing oil, wash your hair using a gentle sulphate-free shampoo and finally use a conditioner. But to really get to the base of the issue and keep your hair absolutely frizz-free, there’s something else you need to do – use a leave-in conditioner.

Now you may question the efficacy and importance of this product since you are already using a conditioner in the shower, but allow us to explain before you go years without realising that this is a great idea.

Basically, adding a leave-in conditioner into your hair care regimen will help you achieve those soft, moisturised curls that you have always dreamt of. It eases the detangling process, adds moisture to dehydrated hair, and helps repair damaged locks. Now who does not want all this? I surely do!

If all of this sounds even remotely familiar, then we have the perfect pick-me-up for your hair. An all-natural, handmade leave-in conditioner that not just seals in moisture, but also keeps your hair looking great all the time.

Benefits of aloe vera and avocado oil

Aloe vera is one of the most hydrating ingredients for your hair as it is enriched with several key ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids.

Avocado oil is one of the best oils for hair, and has a super creamy and nourishing texture. It thoroughly moisturises hair without leaving behind a greasy feel.
