Tired of heat damaged hair with dry ends? This fantastic Leave-In Conditioner and Protectant by Cabella should have a permanent place in your hair care repertoire. Run just a smidgen of this sweet-smelling stuff through wet hair, style as desired, and revel in the softness.
A few weeks ago I went for a long overdue haircut and told my stylist to hack off the crispy ends. Because she liked the length, she only trimmed an inch at most, and lightly coated my ends with Cabella Leave-In. My usually super dry hair had never been so soft. I was instantly hooked.
True to its word, this product really does condition, detangle, protect color, and protect hair from heat and environmental damage. It maintains body and shine, and best of all, it is made with lots of specially chosen organic and natural ingredients, including quinoa protein for strength, rice hull extract for thermal protection, and a special B Reparative Complex with certified organic essential oil blend of sea buckthorn seed oil, bilberry seed oil, and black currant seed oil, meant to make hair healthy inside and out.
Using simply pure ingredients such as argan oil or aloe to condition hair is always an option, but Cabella Leave-In is a multi-tasking, specially formulated product that gives a specific desired affect. Therefore, it is made up of several ingredients that could throw you for a loop. Cetearyl Alcohol is an alcohol derived from fatty acids, and probably helps with the texture of the product and how it affects your hair. Behentrimonium Chloride is an alluminum salt that is a conditioning agent and in this case probably what is making the hair so soft. Alone or in concentrated amounts it could cause minor irritation to the skin and eyes. Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey is simply honey broken down to its most moisturizing molecules. Leuconostoc is a bacteria found in kimchi and used to ferment radish roots to create an anti-microbial preservative, instead of nasty formaldehyde or questionable phenoxyethanol. As a company, Cabella prides itself on being cruelty free and environmentally safe; evidence of intent to create great natural products.
