Is this for my hair? — if your hair has one or more of these traits:

Water and other products quickly absorb into your hair. Your hair tends to break easily. Your hair tends to be frizzy or brittle, it doesn’t take much time for your hair to air dry, you might have a drier scalp.

This prewash has a powerful mix of high-penetrating and lightweight oils. Blended with nourishing Kokum Butter that will leave your hair ultra-soft and reduce frizz by keeping out an overabundance of water entering your strands.

We understand that you might have a mix of the 2 hair type categories (e.g. dry and fine hair) but prioritize what your biggest challenge is and pick your prewash accordingly.
