Akin Daily Shine Avocado & Calendula Conditioner
Enhance your hair’s natural softness and shine with the Akin Daily Shine Conditioner for normal hair. Certified Organic Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Calendula and Wheat Protein nourish with every use. They work to rehydrate and detangle hair while controlling frizz to create a glossy finish.
After shampooing, massage into wet hair and scalp and rinse thoroughly. For best results, use after A'kin Daily Shine Rosemary Shampoo.
*TIP: Natural conditioners won't give the instant shine that conventional conditioners do but that is a good thing! Products that do not contain silicones may not give an immediate shine but will after continual use. They also do not cause build-up and plastic coating on hair, meaning it stays glossier for longer!

The Sulfate free claim, is a term used commonly by the natural beauty industry, specifically referring to the two harsh cleansers found in traditional shampoos, known as SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate). These strong cleansers can strip oils causing irritation to the skin and scalp. No A'kin products contain SLS or SLES and therefore are referred to as sulfate free.
Not all sulfates are bad. Behenyltrimonium Methosulfate (also called BTMS) is one of the good sulfates. It is an oily wax and an extremely mild conditioning ingredient, to moisturise your hair and scalp vs. stripping natural oils away. It is also more degradable than many other conditioning ingredients.
