Your Eco Morning Ritual
Your curls (and the planet) will love you for using this 2-in-1 Curl Quenching Conditioning Wash. This one’s different from most—it gently cleans hair without stripping it of necessary oils by using a conditioner base with few cleansing ingredients, making it gentle and moisturizing while smoothing and detangling unruly hair. This shampoo and conditioner is great for colourtreated hair and is okay to use as often as you want. Made from naturally-derived ingredients: Avocado, Coconut, Sunflower oil, Shea Butter, Resurrection flower, Andiroba, Aloe, Sage, Rosemary, Pepper, and Basil, it’s vegan, contains no sulphates or silicones, and is cruelty-free. curlsmith.com.
