We are fascinated by how spices, nuts like murumuru, and more are becoming more popular in how we care for our hair. These essential ingredients can offer unexpectedly beneficial results!

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 used to add color to beauty products.

How does turmeric benefit hair?

Are there any benefits to using this spice in your hair? The short answer is yes! According to Love Beauty and Planet experts, “Turmeric herb is celebrated for the way it brightens lackluster complexions with a sublimely healthy radiance.” Adding turmeric to your haircare (more on that below) leaves your skin and hair lustrous with radiance and feeling oh-so-soft.

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, incorporate Love Beauty and Planet Sulfate-Free Turmeric & Tonka Essence Shampoo and Conditioner into your wash routine. This duo, infused with turmeric and tonka essence, helps promote strong hair strands. Try this range if split ends are a major concern of yours.
