It tends to be thicker, maybe longer and on the more resilient side, which is great because that means you don’t have to wash it every day, in fact leaving it alone for a day or two gives it a playful texture that works really well for you. If you think you love your hair now, wait ‘til you try Cherry Almond! It will deliver softening benefits for touchable hair, add shine and bounce, and leaves an irresistible, one-of-a-kind aroma.
More reasons to love Cherry Almond:

- Babassu and organic coconut oil provide gentle, weightless cleansing
- Shea butter deeply conditions to restore softness & shine
