  • Baobab Sulfate-Free Cleanser 250ml
  • Babassu Deep Treatment Masque 200ml
  • Black Seed Hair Elixir 100ml
EQUI BOTANICS Baobab Sulfate Free Cleanser is a sulfate-free and low-suds shampoo that does a thorough job cleaning the hair, and it neither leaves a residue, nor does it strip and dry it out. Hair is left soft, manageable and tangle-free. It is one of the finest shampoos that I have tried for my naturally curly and dry hair. It also has a light and pleasant aroma from the essential oils, but it isn't overpowering.

According to EQUI BOTANICS,

The Baobab Moisturising Sulfate Free Cleanser works with gentle coconut-derived surfactants rather than sulfate which are harsh, stripping and drying. It has been carefully formulated to detangle your hair, cleanse product build up thoroughly without stripping the hair. For moisture, we have added the gentle aloe vera to soften and condition your hair while cleansing. The hair lipids are also replenished with the patented Eicosanoic acid so you'll feel the cuticles lie flat after washing.

Directions: Tangles and knots wanted, said no one ever, so section hair into parts. If your hair is short, use clamps or duck bill clips to keep a section apart while you work on another. Apply to the scalp and massage with finger pads. Do the same on all sections. Now, focusing on each section at a time, detangle hair gently to remove shed hair and product build up. Next, rinse with water thoroughly. The suds will flow down, also cleansing the hair shaft. Massage the hair in a downward motion at this time. There is no need to scrub the hair. 

Squeeze away excess water, gently. Proceed on to deep condition with Babassu Deep Treatment. It’s a good wash day.

EQUI BOTANICS Babassu Deep Treatment is a very nourishing and moisturizing hair masque that is the type of deep conditioner that everyone with dry and curly hair will be amazed by. It leaves hair soft, smooth, moisturized, manageable and frizz-free. Furthermore, it doesn't weigh hair down or leave a residue. It enhances my ringlets and gives my hair body and shine. It has a lovely light aroma from the essential oils, but it doesn't seem to linger in my hair.

According to EQUI BOTANICS,

The Babassu treatment hair masque is the mother of all deep treatments and conditioners. A deep conditioner should contain moisturising low molecular fatty acids and hydrolysed protein ingredients. Our Babassu Masque contains Brazilian Babassu oil, Tucuma seed butter, Murumuru butter, Andiroba oil, Castor oil, Avocado oil and Baobab tree protein. Babassu is a superior emollient that conditions without leaving a greasy residue while Murumuru Butter locks moisture into the hair so you don’t have to deep condition for another fortnight or month. This makes the Babassu deep treatment masque a perfectly intensive treatment for damaged cuticles, instantly improving the condition of your hair and provides much needed nutrients to resist aging, wear and tear from handling and adverse weather effects.

Directions: Ensure your hair is clean by using our softening Baobab Cleanser to wash in sections. On dripping wet hair, apply Babassu Masque to each section from ends to root, squeezing in with mild fists. If you find any, you may remove shed hairs. If possible, lay your ends which are the oldest part of your hair, at the top of your head. Covering your hair with a plastic cap, sit under a steamer for 20-40 minutes for a moderate to an intense treatment. Let hair cool first, then rinse off the Masque and follow with our Marula leave-in conditioner for styling.

EQUI BOTANICS Marula Leave-in Conditioner is a very nourishing and moisturizing leave-in conditioner that detangles, fight frizz and leaves hair manageable all day long. I only need a tiny bit distributed throughout my hair, and it has the added benefit of enhancing my curls. It has a light and pleasant aroma, that is informed by the ingredients, but is neither cloying, nor long-lasting.

According to EQUI BOTANICS,

The Marula oil conditioner lives up to its all-in-one label and tackles hair growth, moisture, conditioning, sealing and smoothing so there’s no need to keep buying separate hair conditioning products. This makes it perfect as a leave-in, detangler, moisturiser, conditioner and cream!

Broccoli seed and Daikon Radish oil give hair a smooth finish to fight frizz without the nasty build-up of silicones. The herbal actives - Nettle, Horsetail and Slippery elm work together to stimulate hair growth and give fuller-looking hair.

Directions: To enjoy optimum results, follow this guide: Ensure hair is clean and wet from washing or spritzing. Squeeze out excess water. Separate into small sections - the smaller the better for even coverage. Apply from ends to root, massaging in gently. Remove shed hairs. Style as desired.
