Ayurveda Herbal Hair Leave-in Conditioner
Ayurveda herbal hair leave-in conditioner is the final conditioner in the Ayurveda line. It is jam-packed with hair-loving oils, herbs, and botanical extracts. It also contains keratin, pro-vitamin B5, and essential oils.
This leave-in contains Marshmallow Root, Green Tea, Hibiscus, Methi(fenugreek), Amla, Shikakai, and Ashwangandha just to name a few of the herbs and botanicals.
It can be used after you shampoo and condition your hair for extra added moisturizing for hair that is extra dry, damaged, and or needs more protection. It can also take the place of your conditioner altogether. I have used it both ways and my fine hair prefers either just this conditioning spray or the conditioner. If your hair is in less than good shape and really needs restoring, try the Ayurveda restorative conditioner.
How to Use: dispense a small amount into hands and distribute throughout towel-dried hair, and comb through. Do not rinse. Style as desired.

This is a great leave-in conditioner for hair. And, accidental discovery, surprisingly good for dry damaged skin . However the spray pump gets clogged and is often not functional. When testing with plain water I see that it is designed for a fine mist. But this lotion is of a thicker consistency, hence the failure. There are spray bottles with a wider straw for lotion or lotion dispensers with pumps, which are more suitable. Even so I will keep buying this, really great.
