Strengthening Essence-Conditioner

Our Strengthening Essence-Conditioner is an ultra-lightweight conditioning ‘essence’ to soothe and hydrate the scalp-skin and strands, locking in moisture without feeling greasy or weighing the hair down. 

Independent user trial results over four weeks with 100 women and men found:

  • 83% agreed that their hair and scalp felt instantly moisturised
  • 85% agreed that their scalp felt instantly more comfortable
  • 84% agreed that the product didn’t weigh their hair down
  • 83% agreed that their hair felt fuller
  • 79% agreed that their hair felt stronger

If you thought conditioner was just meant for the ends of your hair and not your scalp, our Strengthening Essence-Conditioner will make you think again. Turning the traditional idea of conditioner on its head (pun intended) we called this an ‘essence-conditioner’ because of its unique lightweight texture  – similar to a skincare ‘essence’ inspired by K-beauty regimes. It treats and nourishes the scalp-skin and strands, without feeling heavy or leaving the hair looking flat. (Also if you’ve just used the Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask, this is the perfect follow-on product to boost its scalp-loving effects.) Perfect for all hair types – especially fine and flyaway hair - it contains strengthening vegan silk peptides, while argan oil and pro vitamin B5 deliver a moisturising double-act to leave the scalp and hair supremely nourished.

  1. Use after cleansing with Silk Protein Shampoo.

  3. Gently massage into the scalp and hair.
  4. Leave in for two minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cold water for extra shine.
