Banana - Provides softening, elasticity, prevents split ends, strength and shine. Retains moisture, corrects dryness. Great for scalp and strands.
Black Pepper - Used in Ayurvedic home remedies to treat hair loss and fall.
Brahmi - Antioxidant, allows nourishment to reach hair roots; controls dandruff and soothes the scalp; can make hair denser and darker.
BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate) - This ingredient made from rapeseed oil is a superior detangler, causing easy comb out when in your hair. Behentrimonium Methosulfate is not a drying salt. Unlike sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a negatively charged (anionic) surfactant that foams and lathers, BTMS is a positively charged (cationic) surfactant that emulsifies and conditions. BTMS' adsorbent quality is what makes it a conditioner versus a detergent. SLS is a detergent type surfactant that does not adhere to your hair strand, but removes soils and washes away with rinsing.
Burdock Root - Improves hair strength, shine and body, and helps reverse scalp conditions such as dandruff, and combats hair loss; rich in phytosterols and fatty acids which maintain a healthy scalp and promote natural hair growth.
