A silky leave-in lotion that deeply moisturizes, defines curls, and ignites natural shine. A balanced blend of bio-actives and botanicals to stop drying strands in their path.
Unyevu is derived from the Swahili word for moisture. The universal element of health and balance. The root of our leave-in, African baobab, is a historically celebrated provider of life, nourishment and health in African culture. When we nourish, we grow.
A balanced blend of bio-actives and botanicals merge in a lightweight, silky leave-in lotion that deeply moisturizes, defines curls, and ignites natural shine. Led by African baobab – the “Tree of Life” – an ensemble of rich oils designed to deliver multi-dimensional benefits combine to strengthen, moisturize, and protect both hair and scalp.
Low molecular weight snow mushroom penetrates the deepest layers of strands and scalp to deliver enduring hydration, while a high molecular weight extract forms a transparent film to seal in moisture and protect hair from drying and damage caused by the elements.
Ximenia and manketti oils infuse a carefully calculated combination of regenerating properties and antioxidants to maintain moisture, battle hair loss, and soften strand texture. With an emphasis on leaving hair lifted and conditioned, Unyevu is especially effective on dry curls with a tendency to break and frizz.
For long-lasting hydration, sustainably-sourced keratin zips to the cuticle and promotes moisture retention. Adaptogens maca root and red ginseng help hair and scalp withstand stressors, leaving hair soft, strong, refreshed, and weightless for days on end.

FOR COILY, KINKY, AND CURLY HAIR EXPECT TO SEE
Strands will feel deeply moisturized and gain natural lift. Frizz, breakage, and dryness will be reduced. Tangling will decrease, reducing single-strand knots and enabling curls to flow freely and hold their natural shape for longer. Scalp will maintain moisture and experience less dryness, irritation and flaking. Hair will be protected from mechanical and environmental damage, allowing scalp and strands to thrive in full bloom.
For straight Hair expect to see
Expect smoother, softer hair with a healthy, comfortable scalp. Greasy appearance will be diminished, and breakage and excessive hair shedding reduced. Heat-styled curls will hold their shape for longer. Scalp and strands will be protected from environmental and mechanical damage, allowing hair to thrive.
For Chemically treated Hair expect to see
Breaking and dryness will give way to softer, smoothed strands, sans frizz. Hair will stay hydrated and hold its natural or styled shape. Scalp and strands will be protected from environmental and mechanical damage, allowing hair to thrive.
The rich nourishing properties of natural African baobab and omega-packed Ximenia are elevated by the robust moisturizing power of Aminosensyl (HC), a 100% natural high-performance cationic ingredient made through fermentation to smooth and define strands and leave them weightless.
An innovative blend of low and high molecular weight snow mushroom delivers dual action benefits, deeply penetrating strands and scalp to deliver enduring hydration while creating a transparent, protective film over hair to support moisture retention and protect from environmental damage.
Peruvian maca root peptides and Korean red gingseng fortify and revitalize hair to help with their adaptogen properties help scalp weather stress and reduce hair loss, while a bioactive form of keratin created to replicate the form our hair naturally produces zips to the cuticle to strengthen, repair and protect hair fibers. A combination of flaxseed and chia extracts, natural silicone alternatives, and natural emollients surround hair with a protective film to lock in moisture and keep curls soft and defined.
The result is impossibly revitalized and strengthened hair that is smooth, refreshed and deeply moisturized.
