Many commercial detanglers are loaded with mineral oil, parabens, glycerin, and silicones that can leave hair looking greasy or build up over time. By contrast, every ingredient in Selkie Herbal Detangler is vegan, hand-blended, and certified organic. Selkie is designed to be lightweight and effective while still washing out with even the most gentle of natural cleansing methods.

🌿Aroma: Crisp sea-spray over alluring sun-basked vanilla and herbs.

🌿Detailed Ingredients
Distilled water– Ensures that Selkie has no mineral buildup and allows for a pH neutral start.

Slippery Elm Herbal Infusion– This gives Selkie its slip by virtue of its mucilaginous compounds. Slippery Elm also naturally softens hair, provides natural plant protein, adds shine, and soothes an itchy or dry scalp.

Aloe vera gel– While well-known for its benefits to skin, this third mucilaginous ingredient provides deep moisturizing effects to the hair and scalp as well. In addition it helps restore pH levels and has both emollient and moisturizing properties, meaning that it smooths the cuticle and attracts and seals in moisture.

Apple cider vinegar– The mildly acidic nature of this helps balance pH of hair and also helps to remove buildup. ACV encourages the cuticle of the hair to lay closed, making hair shine and tangle less.

Argan Oil– Sometimes called “Miracle Oil,” argan oil is extracted from kernels of Argan fruit by crushing. It is swiftly taking the place of other natural oils for hair protection and treatment. Argan oil contains tocopherols (vitamin E), phenols, carotenes, squalene, and fatty acids, making it both light and great for brittle hair.

Borage Oil– Sometimes known as starflower, borage grows wildly in many parts of the world. Borage oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant, and its essential ingredient has been found to be gamma linolenic acid, commonly known as GLA, which is an essential fatty acid that provides a replenishing effect on the skin and hair, and is able to restore moisture and elasticity where it had previously been lost.

Camelina Oil– Known as the “gold of pleasure” to Europeans not long ago. Rich in natural antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids, tocopherols, and high in vitamin E content, Camelina oil is truly under appreciated.

Vitamin E Oil– Our natural Vitamin E oil is obtained by vacuum distillation of vegetable fats derived from non-GMO soy sources. It prevents rancidity and it acts as an anti-oxidant. This particular Vitamin E oil has been verified and tested GMO-free from crop to finished material.

Catnip Essential Oil– A stimulant, catnip can increase blood flow to the scalp, encouraging growth. It’s astringent properties help tighten muscles and skin, helping to reduce shedding in some cases. Catnip is also reputed to assist in reducing split ends.

Cedarwood Essential Oil– Excellent for both hair and skin care. It balances oily skin, soothes and helps to heal skin rashes, and reduces oil in hair and skin.

Lavender Essential Oil– Enhances hair growth by stimulating the scalp. The name “lavender” is derived from the Latin lavare, meaning, “to wash” and was known as one of the seven polyvalents (effective against many toxins).

Lime Essential Oil– A bright scent, lime is antiviral, astringent, and bactericidal. It is at once a cleansing and moisturizing oil, helping with dandruff and scalp buildup.

Petitgrain Essential Oil– Made from the leaves and twigs of this amazing tree, it is antiseptic, antispasmodic, a natural deodorant, and nervine. Use in a hair oil will leave hair and scalp fragrant (petitgrain has woody, citrus and floral notes all in one!), while soothing and preventing bacterial and fungal growth.

Sage Essential Oil– A scalp soother and astringent, the herb is of ancient repute, valued as a culinary and medicinal plant – called herba sacra, ‘sacred herb’, by the Romans.

• Vanilla Burbon CO2 Extract- Vanilla is not produced as pure essential oil. It is well advised to question the authenticity of Vanilla labeled pure essential oil. This soothing scent is perfect for relaxing and meditation.

Wow. It really works! My long, sort of wavy, thick 'n' snarly hair has finally met its match. Selkie works like a dream on my 2 year old's curls too. So happy!

This stuff is magical. After a 6 hour ride on the motorcycle, even my braid was tangled. A little time and Selkie got everything back in order.

This was part of a gift I got for my best friend, who has very long, very thick, wavy hair that tends to be on the dry side. She knew that this was on the way and decided to hold off on brushing her hair from the night before so that she could really put it to the test. It did amazing! She used enough to slightly dampen her hair and was able to work out even the toughest snarls in just a minute or two. Even better, her hair stayed pretty tangle-free the rest of the night! The scent is amazing too. She already loved the hair oil i have gotten from Nighblooming, but now she is a true believer!

I looove this stuff!! I just got my first order today and used it to do my henna dying and it was sooo much easier to wash out after sitting than it is with water alone. It smells great and I an excited to see how it progresses over my use of it. Thank you!! 100% recommend for henna dyers. 💜
