Last week, I shared an updated conditioner list for the max hydration regimen, today I will be updating the gel list. Currently, we have about 18 options to choose from and now there are 3 more options added to the list.
These gels have been chosen based on the criteria that they do not contain ingredients that:
- Cause build up and prevent hair from absorbing moisture efficiently.
- Steal moisture from the hair and prevent it from retaining moisture efficiently.
These two factors are especially important for those who are Low Porosity and have kinkier, coarser texture (4c) hair.
deionized water, behentrimonium methosulfate (btms)(this quat salt is high on the list, which wouldn’t be ideal) cetearyl alcohol, prunus dulcis (almond) milk, prunus dulcis (almond) oil, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, macadamia ternifolia (macadamia nut) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil, ulmus fulva bark extract (slippery elm), ricinus communis (castor) seed oil/hydrogenated, aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf juice, honey, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbic acid, scent and love!
