Here’s a quick look at what makes Manetain conditioner click:
Aloe-there! Need we say any more? Enough has been said about the intense hydrating benefits and healing properties of the natural gel extracted from the aloe vera plant. It is high in fatty acids, amino acids, Vitamin A, B12, B and C, all of which are crucial for hair strength and health. It also offers relief from itchy scalp, dandruff and protects your hair from UV damage. Which is why this power ingredient finds a place in our conditioner.
This wonder oil sourced from Morocco is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamin E. It helps condition the hair, smoothen it and reduce those frizzes. Argan oil helps seal moisture in the hair, preventing dryness and adding lustre. It also helps fight damage caused by using excessive heat, making this a great addition to our conditioner.
Apart from smelling great – which is a big plus – lavender has microbial properties which helps combat inflammation, itchiness and dandruff. It promotes hair growth and improves circulation, leading to stronger hair. It nourishes and smoothens brittle strands, which is one of many things our conditioner is designed to do.
Loaded with flavonoids and linoleic acid, grapeseed oil helps restore hair health and vitality. It’s also a great moisture sealant and is super light, so it doesn’t weigh your hair down. Its phenolic compounds combat UV damage and it fights frizziness like a ninja, ensuring you have a series of good hair days.
Phytokeratin (Hydrolysed corn, Hydrolysed soy and Hydrolysed wheat protein)
This is a plant based protein that mimics amino acids present in hair. Phytokeratin present in the conditioner helps keep a moisture protein balance which helps in strengthening, repairing your hair and preventing breakage. So detangling is not a chore anymore.
How to use Manetain conditioner
This versatile conditioner works in a myriad ways to give you well-defined curls that are healthy, strong, shiny and full of bounce. After cleansing your hair with co-wash, divide the hair into sections and take a small amount of conditioner, working your way through the strands, adding a splash of water as you do so. Remember to do this while your hair is still dripping wet. Repeat the procedure on the other section. You could rinse it off after a few minutes or use as a leave-in conditioner or curl cream.
