Looking for a protein boost to your hair's diet? Maybe you have a loose wavy texture and find that a bit of protein gives your texture the boost you want. Maybe you have weak hair strands due to the fine diameter and/ or mechanical/chemical or heat damage? Or maybe you have dry, overly-thirsty/chronically dry hair strands, which need lots of moisture, as well as the strengthening aid of protein?

Once you have established a foundation of hydration, adding in a protein boost can help strengthen and add mojo to your hair strands.

So, thank you Ecoslay for yet another beautiful concoction!

With hydrolyzed quinoa and keratin proteins, Ecoslay's Matcha Boost protein shake will strengthen even the weakest hair strands.

Hand-made with love, by the curl-loving team at Ecoslay in the USA, Matcha Boost has a very pleasant user-experience as the product has slip and works through the hair with beautiful ease.

ECOSLAY'S DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply liberally to clean, preferably clarified hair.

(DONNA'S NOTE on clarifying; Not all hair types benefit from, or need, clarifying, or shampooing. If you are following The Curly Girl Method you will not be incorporating a lathering cleanser, but if you are following the Cut It Kinky protocol which does use shampoo, or if you wish to use a lathering cleanser/shampoo of your own accord, then this is what this refers to. I use this on my hair and do not use a shampoo or a clarifying shampoo.)

Refer to table below for recommended usage.
For best results, follow up with a conditioner.

Porosity-----Health-----How often?-----How long?-----Heat?

High--------Healthy------Weekly-------5 minutes-------No
High--------Damaged----Weekly------30 minutes------No
Low---------Healthy------Monthly------5 minutes-------Yes
Low---------Damaged-----Weekly-----30 minutes------Yes

High concentrations of key ingredients mean that you won't have to use as much each time as you might with cheaper products - proving that quality is excellent value in the long-run.

SHELF-LIFE AND STORAGE TIPS: Decant the pouch contents into your used, rinsed and dried Matcha Boost bottle, or use from the pouch as is. Because Matcha Boost is an all-natural product and often cool, dry, dark locations are difficult to come by, it is recommended that it is refrigerated to preserve its shelf life.

Colza Oil (Canola Oil)
Colza oil permeates the base of the hair, increasing moisturization and smoothness.

Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein
Considered the Mother Grain of the ancient Incas, Quinoa (pronounced keen-WAH) is a natural protein for hair color retention, conditioning, and protection.
Quinoa is considered a complete protein, containing seventeen amino acids, including all eight essential amino acids. With the combination of cationic and anionic amino acids, hydrolyzed quinoa penetrate into the hair shaft to create a scaffold around the hair to protect the strands and hair color.

Hydrolyzed Keratin Protein
Vegan Keratin alternative sourced from Wheat and Soy
Penetrates the hair shaft to replace missing keratin in microscopic gaps along the hair shaft, resulting in smooth and shiny hair.
Rebuilds the hair’s natural protective layer, making it stronger and more elastic while reducing hair breakage and splitting.
Increases the diameter of hair fibers, giving a fuller appearance to fine and thin hair.
Increases the hair’s ability to retain moisture and reduces frizz and flyaways caused by dryness.

Matcha Extract
Matcha contains epigallocatechin-3-gallat, or EGCG, which promotes growth of hair follicles and stimulates the human dermal papilla cells to boost hair production.
The caffeine contained in Matcha helps to reduce shedding

Propanediol
Propanediol is a corn-derived preservative booster

HP Starch
