INGREDIENTS: WATER, ESSENTIAL OILS, ALOE VERA AND APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Apple cider vinegar acts as the cleansing agent to life the product from the scalp and the follicles. It cleanses the hair without leaving it feeling stripped and prone to breakage. In addition, the aloe vera acts as a moisturizer as it neutralizes the scalp. It aids in in calming the scalp to prevent or reduce any scalp issues. In addition, essential oils work hand in hand with the aloe vera. Essential oils contain antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Each drop of essential oil will seep into the follicle to soothe and alleviate scalp issues such as dry scalp, itchy scalp, dandruff and so much more.
All of these ingredients combined together do work well to cleanse, soothe and nourish an inflamed scalp so it's able to function as it should which is to produce healthy hair growth.

2] DEEP CONDITIONER
INGREDIENTS: WATER, BUTTER, OILS, AND CETEARYL ALCOHOL
The first key ingredient is cetearyl alcohol which is a fatty acid that moisturizers the hair shaft from the inside out. In addition, it softens the hair so the knots and tangles are easier to remove using your detangling brush. In addition, it reduces frizz and friction which can cause breakage, split ends and single strand knots.
Butters and oils acta as a sealant as they prevent the moisture from escaping the hair strands. In addition, deep conditioners are formulated to renew, repair and restore the hair. The best way to do is by replenishing the hair with hydration (water) and keeping it locked in until the next wash day using sealants (butters and oils).

After rinsing it's time to add another level of moisturizer to your hair. Natural hair soaks up moisture pretty quickly so you want to keep the hair moisturized. As well as, deep conditioners are rinsed out so we need another layer of conditioner that doesn't rinse out. And as such we have leave-in conditioner. IN all your leave-in conditioners water should be the first ingredient.
Water is the best hydrator for your hair as it mediately softens and is absorbed into the hair shaft. You notice your hair transforms once it has been soaked with water. Aloe vera is a moisturizer which aids in keeping the curls hydrated during the styling process. most of aloe vera is made with water so you're adding another level of hydration to your hair. The key with using moisturizers is that they should be keeping your curls hydrated, preferably with clean hydration./

INGREDIENTS: OILS, BUTTER
The next step is to seal in the hydration using a sealant. Sealant makes it harder for moisture to escape for our hair strands. And so our hair strands stay moisturized for longer.
The best way to seal your hair is using oils and/or butter.
From science call we might remember that oils do nto mix with water. SO if it is applied to our hair, the oil will trap the h20 molecules from our hydrators/moisturizer unto the hair strand. Therefore, making difficult for the moisture to escape.
Although butters do mix with water, they still act as a sealant. The butter or cream used will hold unto the moisture in your hair strands. Also, it aids in softening and smoothen your hair.
