Product's Label Information

Ingredients from packaging:

Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Guar Gum (Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride), Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Fullers Earth, Irish Moss Powder (Chondrus Crispus), Fine Sea Salt, Fragrance, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis), Cream of Tartar (Potassium Bitartrate), Almond Oil (Prunus Dulcis), Lanolin, Soya Lecithin, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Peppermint Oil (Mentha Piperita), Rosemary Absolute (Rosmarinus Officinalis), Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla), Yeast, Red Henna (Lawsonia Inermis), *Eugenol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Irish Moss (Chondrus Crispus)

Directions from packaging:

1. Place your treatment in a heatproof container and boil some water in a kettle. 2. Slowly add several ounces of boiling-hot water to the solid treatment and stir gently using the wooden stick. Take your time, adding water as needed, and allowing the product to thicken until you're left with an empty stick and a rich, creamy treatment. This should take around five minutes. 3. When it's cool enough to touch, apply to dry hair and leave for around 20 minutes to allow the ingredients to get to work replenishing your hair. Shampoo out and admire your luscious locks! Made too much? Keep your mix for conditioning top-ups for up to four weeks.
