  • Coconut
  • Coconut

    Coconut has stepped into the spotlight in so many forms lately, and it’s not just because it smells delicious. Sports drinks are swapped out for coconut water thanks to sky-high levels of electrolytes, and olive oil has taken a backseat to coconut oil for cooking purposes. We also use it for moisturizing skin, hair and nails, thanks to its deeply hydrating and antimicrobial properties (so it’s no wonder we’re seeing it packed into a bunch of new beauty products lately)!

  • Avocado
  • Avocado

    The creamy and rich texture of avocado is responsible for its variety of uses in both food and skincare and haircare (let’s just say we’re not ones to turn down a bowl of guacamole). Loaded with potassium, vitamin K, folate, and vitamin B5 (among a lot of other vitamins and minerals), it’s considered an excellent source of fatty acids that are essential to a healthy diet, moisturized skin and hydrated hair.

    This low-lather, soap-free and hair-smoothing cleansing conditioner puts avocado oil to work to tame unruly, thick or coarse hair by cleansing without moisture-stripping sulfates. Hard-to-manage hair requires the natural oils that traditional shampoos usually remove, which causes hair to become unmanageable, and this product reverses that very notion.
