At TBT headquarters we tend to avoid conditioners and detanglers because they always make our hair limp and nasty. But I have curly hair that always tangles when I wash it and I was getting fed up! And then, I found John Masters Citrus & Neroli Detangler. Sounds swish, right?
Comprising of 18 organic ingredients, this detangler can be used as a leave-in conditioner or you can rinse it out after 1-3 minutes. Unlike other detanglers it doesn't have an overpowering scent and has the nourishing power of natural soy & wheat proteins, flaxseed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, borage oil and vitamin E, not to mention 7 flower extracts and 4 essential oils.
According to the product promo it is good for all hair types and is safe for colour treated hair. Em & L both have fine straight hair, so this product was hotly anticipated here!
This product does contain sodium benzoate, described fully in this post.
This detangler also introduced to two new ingredients:
- Behentrimonium methosulfate which is derived from non GMO rapeseed oil. Quite magically this is a mild ingredient (it's also used in baby products) and doesn't build up on the hair. When combined with cetearyl alcohol it becomes a superior emulsifier and conditioner.
- and, Canarium luzonicum (elemi) gum nonvolatiles. To be honest, we couldn't find any information on this ingredient other than the fact that it can cause skin irritation at high doses...luckily you only need a few drops of this conditioner.
