“Rich in aloe vera, calendula and chamomile to soothe tired, dry hair, hydrolyzed wheat protein to fortify and sesame to deliver long lasting nourishment”.
The product has a thick gel-like consistency that is neither waxy nor creamy, but it certainly feels like it’s moisturizing enough to nourish your hair. The instructions on the tub recommends leaving it on wet hair for 15 minutes, but if you don’t have 15 minutes to spare in the shower, leaving it between 5 to 10 minutes should suffice.

Using Sukin’s Botanical Protein Treatment twice a week should be able to bring life back to your tresses, especially if you have dry, frizzy hair!
