Of course whenever we think of marshmallows, our brains automatically resort to s’mores, hot chocolate, and campfires. But what if I told you that marshmallow is actually the PERFECT detangler and moisturizer combination? It really is.

Marshmallow root is a mucilage, meaning it is known to produce a thick consistency to protect and coat membranes. The extract provides anti-inflammatory properties from its flavanoid content. In addition, the phagocytosis in marshmallow root extract have been proven to help slough away dead cell tissues within the skin. This helps make for great exfoliating and restoration component.

With that said, I have a tendency of relying heavily on hair product with marshmallow root extract for my 3C curls because of how great it works on detangling annoying knotty, matted, and tangled hair. And if you have that same problem with your curls, try one of these, if you haven’t already.
