Marshmallow Root For Curly Hair Care

MARSHMALLOW ROOT

What is it?

 

Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is a perennial herb that’s native to Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa. It’s been used as a folk remedy for thousands of years to treat digestive, respiratory, and skin conditions.

Its healing powers are due in part to the mucilage it contains. It’s typically consumed in capsule, tincture, or tea form.

 

It’s also used in skin products and cough syrups.

Hair Benefits

 

Marshmallow root extract is a popular ingredient in many hair conditioners for its amazing slippery texture for easy detangling as well as softening the hair. It is high in plant protein that promotes healthy hair growth and shine while also soothing dry scalp and skin inflammation.

How to use?

You can easily boil 2 tablespoons of marshmallow root in 2 cups of purified water until the mucilage is released, approximately 15 minutes.  Or you can simply steep the same amount of the herb in 1 1/2 cups of boiled water like you would make a tea.   

 

Extract the gel by straining or using a nylon to filter the mucilage from the herb with tongs into a clean bowl or jar.  Boiling the herb will create a thicker consistency.

 

Add the marshmallow root extract in a container mixing your favorite conditioner.
