A Quick Refresher on Mallow Root

— September 02, 2020

Mallow root (mainly known as Marshmallow root) is the central ingredient in your Palmer's Natural Fusions Mallow Root Leave-in Conditioner. Are you familiar with the medicinal benefits of this slippery wonder? Check it out. Marshmallow root is not the same as the sweet treat you’re thinking of. It’s a beige-colored root that’s actually used in many medicinal preparations because of it’s ability to coat membranes, skin or hair, and reduce inflammation, alleviate respiratory issues and silken strands. When added to hair products, marshmallow root’s naturally slippery texture helps even the kinkiest texture achieve an instant “slip.” The root also has reparative and restorative qualities that help mend split ends and frayed curls. It makes curls loopier, softer and more defined. It also smoothes the cuticle and helps prohibit frizz. Apply your Leave-in Conditioner to freshly conditioned hair and finger-comb. It's perfect to use before blowouts, twisting and general styling. You can also use it to refresh curls in the morning. Photo: @travellingchingrita
