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 heals and protects the ends of hair. Although there is no way to mend split ends, this butter will help damaged hair by smoothing the cuticle, helping to keep dry ends moisturized, and prevent protein loss. This 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.
The 8 oz size is perfect for refilling smaller containers or frequent deep treatments.
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.
Panacea’s Hair Salve is free of parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances, and artificial coloring agents.
