Ayurveda Herbal Hair Conditioner - Multi Purpose Hair Treatment
Ayurveda herbal hair conditioner and mask has been in the works for quite some time and now finally it's ready for your hair. It is the perfect companion to any of my handmade shampoo bars and also can be used as a deep conditioning pre-shampoo mask. The color is PINK, yes it is! Why? The lovely pink color comes from an infusion of hibiscus flowers and grapeseed extract. It also contains horsetail extract and hydrolyzed rice protein and is fortified with pro-Vitamin B5, vitamin E, allantoin and silk peptides. The rich conditioning oils in this luxurious hair treatment are argan, black castor oil, wheat germ oil, and virgin coconut oil that has been infused with my ayurvedic powder blend of brahmi, bhringraj, shikakai, neem, and amla. I have scented it with essential oils of rosemary, peppermint, and spearmint for their beneficial attributes to hair and scalp as well.
Please note* this conditioner is very potent, meaning a little goes a long way, so start with the size of a chickpea or almond amount in your hands and distribute from the ends upward to your scalp. If you have long and or thick hair you will need a little more product.
To Use as a conditioner: Apply a small amount to wet clean hair. Work into hair and scalp, concentrating on the ends of hair. Leave on 1 - 3 minutes. Rinse.
Less is more, I have fine shoulder length hair, I use the ayurveda shampoo bar and this conditioner only twice a week. I do not put the conditioner on my scalp at all because it doesn't need it, just mid-shaft to ends works perfectly for me.
To Use as a pre-shampoo mask: Apply to dry hair and leave on for 10 minutes, then shampoo. Can also be used after shampooing, like a traditional hair mask for over processed tress..
