About the Ingredients

Flaxseed extract

  • Flaxseed provides nutrition for hair follicles because it’s rich in fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish hair follicles for healthy hair growth. 
  • Flaxseed is also rich in protein and selenium, both of which are necessary for growing healthy, shiny hair.
  • Flaxseed's omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory, and may lower inflammation associated with hair loss, dandruff and other unhealthy scalp conditions.
  • Flaxseed contains vitamin e, which provides additional nourishment for hair follicles and moisturizes the strands.

Agave nectar extract

  • Agave nectar provides moisture and gives hair a lustrous shine.
  • Agave nectar contains large molecules comprised of polysaccharides. Saponin, inulin, and fructose. These molecules consist of hydroxyl groups that make them hydrophilic meaning that they act like a humectant and draws water to the hair.


  • Naturally occurring setting agent
  • Pectin strengthens the hair cuticle, preventing breakage and improving length retention

Aloe Vera juice

  • Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp.
  • Aloe vera juice also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny.
  • Aloe vera juice promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair.
  • Aloe vera juice has a chemical makeup similar to that of keratin, the primary protein of hair, consisting of amino acids, oxygen, carbon, and small amounts of hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulphur. 

Marshmallow Root extract

  • Marshmallow root is great for soothing and relieving your scalp and hair. It's rich in proteins and vitamins, treating hair ailments like eczema, psoriasis and dry scalp.
  • Super slippery, aiding in detangling

Vitamin E

  • Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant, supports a healthy scalp and helps maintain hair growth.
  • There is some limited evidence to support the claim that vitamin E can help prevent hair loss.

Xanthan Gum

  • Natural thickener and holding agent

Optiphen Plus

  • Globally approved preservative in the Optiphen family, paraben and formaldehyde-free.

Sweet Orange Essential Oil

  • Orange essential oil is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory which makes it an ideal ingredient in your skin and hair routine.
  • It's been shown to increase the ability to absorb vitamin C, collagen production, and blood flow, all of which are essential for anti-aging.

I love it!

It’s the perfect hair gel for curls. Great slip and a little goes a long way. Also I love that there’s a light scent which isn’t too over powering.

My curls love this product!

Morgan Whitecotton (Minneapolis, MN, US)
Love this!!

This is a perfect curl cream that adds just enough crunch for definition but they can be easily broken up for soft bounce! So happy I found a sustainable product that works.
