How to intensely hydrate my natural, relaxed, curly or coiled afro-textured black hair
"I have natural coiled hair. It is naturally dry and constantly needs moisturizing. Sometimes, especially in winter, my scalp feels tight and itches."
UNDERSTANDING AFRO-TEXTURED HAIR
A CHALLENGING HAIR TYPE
Wiry, corkscrew, curly, natural or straighted hair offers an infinite range of beauty. But when it comes to daily care, it can be a challenge to hydrate and maintain growth. Certain styling choices (chemical relaxing, weaves, braids, straightening, coloring) can also heighten its natural fragility.
Your hair needs expert care.
WHAT IS HAPPENING DEEP DOWN?
An afro-textured black hair is oval-shaped in a cross-section, rather than round, and the bulb is set in the scalp at an angle. These physiological considerations encourage a tight curl. Every twist in this tight curl is a potential breaking point, which increases the overall fragility of the hair.
In addition, many people with African heritage have scalps that produce less oil than those of European heritage. In hot sun, sebum melts easily and slides down the hair, coating and protecting it. It colder climates, however, a naturally drier scalp can mean discomfort and drier hair.

A UNIQUE BLEND OF NATURAL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Native to West Africa, this prodigious and regenerative active ingredient nourishes hair deep down and restores its natural beauty. Its oil penetrates exceptionally deeply.

Adapted to the climate of south Madagascar, Moringa is a legendary tree, nicknamed the "tree of eternity".
Rich in ultra-nourishing lipids (sterols, ceramides, and phospholipids), Moringa extract penetrates right to the core of each strand to repair the intercellular cement and strengthen the hair.
The argan tree grows at the edge of the Moroccan desert and is seen as a gift from the heavens. Rare and precious, Argan oil is extremely rich in essential fatty acids, vital to restoring the protective hydrolipidic film at the hair's surface and locking in moisture.
