Recovery Balm


This stick is my little miracle. It’s coconut and castor oil based so the longer you leave it on, the better! I use it for SO many things: a shine product when I do braids, a pre-shampoo treatment when hair feels super-dry. I sleep with it on (you should see the cute bun cap inside - use it to protect your pillow!). I use it to tame fly-aways on damaged hair, to soften and add moisture to edges. And sometimes just when I want shine and separation with no hold. It goes to work, conditioning and restoring while you go about your life!

How To Use

Tip: This is an oil-based recovery balm and may require one additional shampoo to remove oils completely.

Daytime use:

  1. Apply to any dry or damaged hair areas that need restored moisture.
  2. Create a braid, a pony, a bun or just leave your hair down if it looks good and let the balm go to work!
  3. Shampoo and condition as usual whenever you're ready.

Overnight use:

  1. Warm a dab of balm in your hands and work it from middle to ends. 
  2. Wrap your hair in a high or low bun.
  3. Cover using the bun cap inside the box. Sleep!
  4. Shampoo and condition as usual in the morning.
