Milk & honey produces a gentle, moisturising & cleansing shampoo bar suitable for all hair types, but especially dry or damaged hair. Evocative of Cleopatra, who bathed in milk and honey to maintain her youthful appearance. Mark Anthony & Julius (that's two people;) can testify to that!
Besides the nourishing and cleansing combination of ingredients, oils & butters, this bar benefits from:-
Coconut milk helps to strengthen cuticles and keeps your hair strong which slows hair loss. The natural fatty acid profile of coconut milk has great moisturising effects which can restore both dry hair and your scalp, acting as a conditioner for damaged hair too.
Honey is a natural humectant, which means that it can absorb moisture from the air making it a great hair moisturiser. Emollients smooth the hair follicles, adding shine to dull hair. Humectants bond with water molecules, adding moisture to dry strands.
