All of our salves smooth, heal, and protect the ends of your hair. Although there is no way to mend split ends, these whipped butters will help damaged hair by smoothing the cuticle, helping to keep dry ends moisturized, and prevent protein loss.
Panacea’s Hair Salve
Panacea’s Hair Salve takes its namesake from the Greek goddess who personified healing through herbs; in the Middle Ages, the name was applied to a mythical herb supposed to possess a cure-all quality, and today her name lives on as a term meaning cure-all, or heal all.
The richest of our three salves, Panacea’s Hair Salve contains protein. Its aroma is mystical, and our customers compare it to the Amortentia potion from Harry potter; while no one agrees on what it smells like, everyone says it smells divine.
Ostara’s Hair Salve
Ostara’s Hair Salve takes its namesake from the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring. She is associated with the Moon Hare or rabbit, with eggs, Dawn, and the East – all symbolizing her primary qualities of bringing birth, rebirth and renewal to a winter-weary world. Her salve will bring similar renewal to your hair.
A lighter, airier salve, Ostara’s Hair Salve contains protein. Its aroma is bright, citrus and herbs.
Freya’s Hair Salve
Freya’s Hair Salve takes its namesake from the Norse of love and fertility, and the most beautiful and propitious of the goddesses. She is the patron goddess of crops and birth, the symbol of sensuality and was called upon in matters of love. She loves music, spring and flowers, and is particularly fond of the elves (fairies).
A lighter, airier salve, Freya’s Hair Salve is protein-free. It has a clean unisex scent reminiscent of a winter forest draped with newfallen snow.
All of the hair salves in the Hair Salve Sample Trinity Pack are free of parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances, and artificial coloring agents.
Instructions & Storage
Post-Shower End Protection: Rub a pea-sized dollop between the palms. Starting at the very ends of towel-dried hair, press palms gently together and slide over the ends of the hair. Repeat as necessary, starting up higher on the length of the hair each time until palms are clean of salve. If hair appears greasy when dry, use a smaller amount next time and apply carefully, being mindful to spread the salve evenly. With only such a small amount needed, this jar will last you a very long time!
Deep Treatment: Apply liberally to length of damp or dry hair, let sit under shower cap for 1-2 hours. Wash.
Storage: As unrefined coconut oil melts at 24-25°C (76°F), this product may separate at warmer temperatures and should be stored in a cool place. If it has separated, simply place in the refrigerator and stir often until it is again a solid cream. Panacea’s Hair Salve has a shelf life of two years unrefrigerated, longer if kept cool.
