Scavenges Free Radicals / Rehydrates
Harvested using a gentle infusion process, orchid oil is extracted from the stems and flowers of the Cymbidium orchid, AKA the boat orchid. In addition to its frizz controlling properties, in clinical trials it was discovered that orchid oil helps fill in the cracks and imperfections in each and every hair strand, restoring natural hair shine. Additionally it acts as an external moisture balancer, possessing both hydrophillic and hydrophobic properties. Orchid oil contains Orchicyanin I, Orchicyanin II and Cyanin, all of which form Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), scavenging up to 4x more free radicals than Vitamin E & Vitamin C!
Reproteinizer / Prevents Breakages
300 years ago, hemp was the FIRST plant to be spun and turned into fiber for sails, canvases and clothing. But today, there is a lot of confusion around this amazingly beneficial plant…as industrial hemp is virtually identical to its “questionable” sibling. Hemp seed oil not only helps to prevent breakage, but is rich in Omega 3, 6 & 9 as well as a heavy dose of conditioning Vitamin E. While hair is made up 90% protein, Hemp seed oil contains 25% protein and delivers a natural reproteinizing action to hair…leaving it stronger and healthier!
Deep Cleanses / Invigorates
Found in the coniferous trees that tower over the British Columbia, Cedarwood Oil is extracted through the process of steam distillation from wood pieces of the cedar wood tree.

Where hair is concerned, it helps cleanse and freshen the scalp and is ideal for oily hair. It also help stimulate the hair follicles by increasing circulation to the scalp, contributing to healthy hair growth.
