Who knew the roots attached to these pretty little flowers could pack such a punch? Marshmallow root is one of our favorite hair-loving herbs, because it is so multi-functional! Not only does it help detangle, moisturize and soften hair - it has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe dry, itchy scalps.
Moisture and slip:
Those of us with naturally curly or coily hair know how important it is to have sufficient lubricity (or slip) in our products, as our hair tends to become tangled more easily than straighter textures. The slipperier the product, the easier it is to detangle our hair with minimum damage or breakage - and marshmallow root extract provides lots of slip!
Marshmallow root has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it excellent for soothing irritated scalps.
The mucilage it provides even binds to hair proteins, thickening the strand, improving elasticity, and preventing breakage.
You can find marshmallow root extract as a key ingredient in our Marshmallow & Babassu product line. Click here to shop the collection!
