For relaxed hair

A hard-working mask is a non-negotiable for chemically-processed locks and this beauty gets our vote. The goodies inside are endless. Think softening organic shea butter, nutrient-rich Jamaican Black Castor Oil and peppermint to stimulate the scalp. Hair’s left moisturised, manageable and more resilient against breakage.
