Ingredients Deep Dive into my Hair Conditioner via EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database

https://www.somethinspecial.com/product-p/prod25.htm

Today we are deep diving into the ingredients in my Reconstructive Hair Conditioner. Full disclosure, I do not make my conditioner base, instead I research samples from many, many different companies and then I choose the best one. I have modified this base with 3 nutritious and moisturizing ingredients: Marshmallow Root Powder, Chamomile Extract & Argan Oil.

In case you were wondering who EWG Skin Deep is, it is my go to resource if I have any questions about an ingredient, with the 2nd being Wikipedia. They use the power of information to protect human health and the environment. Their database gives you practical information to protect yourself and your family from everyday exposures to chemicals. They have an easy to understand rating system
And also understand, when listing ingredients, it is done by quantity. So the first few ingredients make up most of the product, while the last few are in the smallest percentages.

Here's a deep dive of each individual ingredient in my reconstructive hair conditioner. I remember when I first got this sample, I started offering it in my monthly sample sets and it was so popular, many people asked me to add it the permanent hair care category.  It is one of my personal favorites and I use it daily to condition my hair.
