As far as ingredients, it depends on the ingredients and the order they're in on the label. For example, when it comes to conditioning (and deep conditioning) my hair, the first five ingredients need to be these:Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulphate, Stearly alcohol, and Cetrimonium Chloride. Now, with Aubrey Organics products, I'm not sure about their label. I use their conditioners with wonderful results. Their ingredients' label is: Coconut Fatty acid Cream Base, Organice Aloe vera, Wheat Germ Oil, then it varies from there.
As far as styling products, the ingredients can vary.
The question I have is: why do these ingredients work for my hair, and not just herbs or oils? I would love to know the reason!
Coconut Fatty Acid Cream base is often cetearyl alcohol. I think Aubrey is a bit intentionally deceptive in this because the former looks a lot more "organic: than the latter.
