Designed for dry and frizzy hair, the LOVE Smoothing Shampoo uses prickly pear extract to provide intense moisture to hair and scalp. Rice Proteins create a protective layer on the hair and Olive Oil acts as an emollient while Indian Fig Extract heals hair cuticles, leaving hair manageable. LOVE Smoothing Conditioner works to replenish both hair and scalp, restoring heat-damaged hair with Vitamin E, moisturizing with rice bran wax and nourishing hair and scalp with borage oil. The blend of moisturizers and silicones leaves hair soft, silky and manageable and loved.
