What is turmeric root?

Known for its powerful medicinal properties, turmeric root is an Indian spice that has been used for many years in various ways. Although one of its main uses is in foods and medicine, turmeric also contains curcumin, a yellow-colored chemical that is used to add color to beauty products.

How does turmeric benefit hair?

Are there really any benefits for using this spice in your hair? The short answer is yes!

How to add turmeric to your hair routine:

Adding turmeric into your hair care routine isn’t just a matter of pouring the spice into your shampoo or conditioner. While this can be done, we don’t want you making a mess as the ingredient can stain your hands, clothing and sink. Instead, opt for incorporating Love Beauty and Planet Sulfate-Free Turmeric & Tonka Essence Shampoo and Conditioner into your wash routine.
