Back To Your Roots Scalp + Hair Prewash ❤ Dry, frizzy or curly hair


What it is: Multitasking, creamy plant-based hair mask beautifully formulated with 20 nutrient-dense Indian herbs, oils & flowers to nourish your hair root to tip, inside out.

Why it's special:

 Delivers super-dose of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids & antioxidants to your hair follicles so healthy hair can grow from the very beginning. 

 Oil-balancing, antibacterial & anti-inflammatory ingredients help relieve itchiness and scalp sensitivities. The key to a healthy scalp is balancing oil production and pH level, which this hair mask does brilliantly. 

 Nourishing plant oils easily absorb into your strands, moisturizing and strengthening them from the inside. Helps seal in moisture, detangle, reduce frizz, & prevent everyday damage from water, heat, and environmental stressors. Bring out your beautiful natural texture, strong and healthy!

Is this for my hair — if your hair has one or more of these traits:

Water and other products quickly absorb into your hair, your hair tends to break easily, your hair tends to be frizzy or brittle, it doesn’t take much time for your hair to air dry, you might have a drier scalp.

This prewash has a powerful mix of high-penetrating and light-weight oils blended with nourishing kokum butter that will leave your hair ultra-soft and reduce frizz by keeping out an overabundance of water entering your strands.

We understand that you might have a mix of the 2 hair type categories (e.g. dry and fine hair) but prioritize what your biggest challenge is and pick your prewash accordingly.

STEP ONE: Start with dry hair. Apply a generous amount directly onto your scalp and massage into the crown of your head.

STEP TWO: Work more of the pre-wash down the length of your hair while smoothing evenly throughout but without drenching.

STEP THREE: Hang out for at least 20 minutes — cook dinner, catch up with your bestie or walk your dog.

STEP FOUR: Shampoo and condition as you normally do.


Time to Adjust

Being an all-natural product, allow a few weeks for your hair to adjust and really reap the benefits from the prewash. You should be able to see immediate results after your first use. But the real magic of the prewash is using it regularly so you can really build up your hair health.

Scalp Health Is Key

We really encourage you to spend a few minutes massaging your scalp with this prewash. There are studies that show that massaging your scalp every day for a few minutes helps grow healthier, thicker hair. Massaging helps increase blood flow to your scalp, which helps oxygen and nutrients really soak into your hair roots.

How Long to Keep It In For

If 20 minutes is all you got, that's totally fine. But if you can, try to keep it in as long as possible. Sleeping in the prewash overnight is ideal — make a loose braid or top-knot bun after you massage the prewash in and before you hit the pillow.

Go the Extra Mile

After applying the prewash, use a comb to evenly distribute it throughout your strands. Combing also helps stimulate blood flow to your scalp (we have a great one if you're looking!). De-tangling your hair before you jump in the shower helps make sure it gets an even, thorough cleanse and you don't need to deal with brushing out knots while your hair is wet.
