Why is our DIY leave-in conditioner so dang good?

It’s all about those wonder-working ingredients! Dry hair doesn’t stand a chance against the lock-loving benefits of aloe vera juice, avocado oil, and pure essential oils.

  • Aloe vera juice comes from the same plant aloe vera gel does. Think of how you hydrate and soothe parched skin with aloe gel. You get a similar effect with aloe vera juice in your hair and on your scalp.
  • Diluting your go-to conditioner with the aloe juice makes it easier to spray on hydration without weighing hair down. May we suggest switching to Copaiba Vanilla Conditioner to boost those hair care benefits?
  •  Avocado oil contains vitamins A, B, D, E, and beta carotene. It is deeply moisturizing for your hair and scalp. Change the amount of avocado oil in the recipe to suit your hair’s needs.
  • Essential oils—although we may be biased—are the real winner here! You can tailor which scents you love with benefits that will suit your specific hair needs. As far as our formula goes, Cedarwood helps you show off healthy-looking hair, while Lavender helps cleanse when used on your mane.

What other hair care needs can we help with? How about getting major hold without sacrificing hydration and taming your frizzy tresses?
