The Power of Flax
Meet the special ingredient that makes it all possible: flaxseed.
All of our signature products feature flaxseed gel and oil. Flaxseed gel is a favorite for its detangling and hold properties. As the basis for our hair masks, conditioners and gels, it provides a unique slip that makes detangling easy. And because it’s water activated, it makes your hair easier to detangle the next time you wash, while helping with styling and hold. Also, it reduces the time and products it takes to style your beautiful, curly hair. Flaxseed oil is also rich in nutrients key to scalp and hair health, like vitamin E, B1, B2, B6, and biotin. To us, this is our secret miracle worker!
