Mango Tulsi Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner

Straight from our latest collection, this powerful product combines the king of fruits with the queen of herbs to create a nourishing botanical blend rich in antioxidants, vitamins A & C, and mango. Tulsi, known for its aromatic, botanical leaves, is rich in vitamin C and zinc, to maintain moisture in the scalp. Tulsi also helps improve scalp health and strengthen roots.

After conditioning your hair, section strands in four parts and apply the leave-in conditioner. Then work through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Do not rinse. Style as desired or use as a curl crème option for wash-n-go or curl defined styles such as twist-outs and rod sets.

After your hair has been cleaned and is damp, divide it into sections. Then, apply a liberal amount of this mousse to your hair, combing or fingering through from root to end. Follow the same pattern in each section of hair until you’re completely done, and then style as you please.
