Mangrove Natural Concentrated Hair Conditioner & Styler
More than 95% of all hair conditioners available over the counter or from salons contain a form of silicone. Many contain multiple forms of the chemical to coat and encase the hair shaft. The results are a high shine that leaves hair very organized. The problem with silicones is that they coat the scalp and pores as equally as they do the hair. Many dermatologists believe that silicones along with sulfates are a primary cause of premature baldness in men and women. At Keys, we searched the world for a natural conditioner ingredient that would operate like silicone, but without the negative properties. In fact, one of our criteria was that it had to help condition the scalp as well. What we discovered was a natural conditioner called Brassica. It resembles pure natural coconut, but without the stripping characteristics of coconut. It has a low acidity level so it mirrors the skin and scalp condition. Mangrove Conditioner contains Brassica and other natural oils in a concentrated conditioning cream.
The primary form of silicone use in hair care products is called Dimethicone. In cosmetics and personal care products Dimethicone and related ingredients are used in the formulation of a wide range of cosmetic and personal care products including cosmetic creams and lotions, bath soaps, shampoo and hair care products. The most widely used ingredient in this group is Dimethicone. Dimethicone can so encapsulate the hair shaft that in tests at Keys, the hair cuticle photographed under an electron microscope was non-existent. Sealed shut! It took an average of 7 days of shampooing with Mangrove to remove it. Then the conditioning effects of Mangrove Conditioner opened the cuticle to create fuller hair with shine and manageability.
Mangrove Conditioner is concentrated so a little goes a long way. Just a small amount on wet hair conditions the scalp and the hair as well as nourishing the hair follicle. Just a drop on wet hair as a leave-in hair conditioner and styler give just washed hair the day old look with shine and body.
”I have been using the unnamed version of Mangrove Conditioner for over two years. The discovery of Brassica gave my hair the shine and body I wanted without the suffocating effects of silicone or Dimethicone. As we waited for Mangrove Shampoo to be born, I used Mangrove Conditioner with our Island Rx and Windsurfer. The shine and conditioning were good, but not like the combination of Mangrove Shampoo and Conditioner. “ Wendy Steele , Keys CEO and Founder
