WHO'S IT FOR? is your hair on the drier side? fine to medium hair? this is the one. if you have wavy/curly hair, your hair will love this! if you hair on the thicker side, you may want to take a peek at revive conditioner.
purpose: for dry / damaged hair, now scented with essential oils of amyris and siam wood (similar notes of sandalwood) + bergamot + geranium hydrosol
to soothe, nourish and heal. made with nutrient rich flowers, moisturizing honey and luxurious ayurvedic oils that are all about balance and finding serenity.
changes to support our plants:
we have decided to remove sandalwood essential oil from serenity conditioner. due to the demand for this oil, there is rapid deforestation and overharvest of this precious tree. we want to make sure the ingredients we use are always properly supported, harvested with care and pure intention never putting any of these species ever at risk.
as a substitute for the aroma and amazing properties, we are now using siam wood essential oil and amyris essential oil. together, they have many notes and properties similar to sandalwood. still providing a woody-balsamic, creamy, light vanilla tones with these new additions.
purchased through a US supplier that purchases directly from small to medium distillers, making sure integrity, transparency and quality is always at the forefront.
amyris essential oil : aromatherapy - great for stress, tension or anxiety, mood booster. benefits - antiseptic, great for skin health.
siam wood oil : aromatherapy - mental clarity, stress, fatigue, wellbeing and peace.
- safe for color treated hair

As a daily conditioner : gently squeeze the water from your hair and apply to the midshaft of your hair and down to the ends. leave in your hair for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. if your hair is feeling dry you can rinse partially, leaving those delicious oils in your hair to absorb.
As a weekly hair mask : while in the shower, massage into the scalp and hair to the scalp and hair after you have shampooed, let it rest for at least 10 minutes and then rinse. OR for an overnight hair mask... with damp hair, massage the conditioner into your scalp and hair, put up into a bun or out of your way, sleep well and then the next morning you can shower and wash your hair as you normally would with shampoo and conditoner. ooh your hair and scalp is going to enjoy that!
