    1. revealkelly1Acure Smooth & Manageable conditioner is easy to work into my hair and has a pleasant subtle smell. I have found my hair to be straighter and not at all dried out since switching to the Acure Smooth & Manageable duo.
    2. Best Tip Takeaway: I use this conditioner along with the Acure Smooth & Manageable shampoo because I put my hair through a lot every day.  After shampooing and conditioning with Acure, I blow it dry and then I use an extra hot straightener.

    1. Ingredient Review: 1. behentrimonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium salt. It is used as a conditioning agent, defrizzer and preservative. The EWG rates it a 3 for concerns of possible irritation to the skin, allergic reaction and possible damage to the mucus membranes around the eyes at concentrations of .1% and higher 2. stearalkonium chloride is a stearic acid found in plants and animals. It is used as a surfactant, anti-static agent and preservative. The EWG rate it a 4 for concerns of eye and skin irritation and allergic reaction. Studies showed that it is safe and non-toxic at the concentrations typically used in cosmetic products (0.1 to 5%)(Truth in Aging) 3. tocopherol acetate is a form of vitamin E that is formed when combined with acetic acid (which comes from vinegar). Vitamin E is an antioxidant and skin conditioning agent, acetic acid is often added to it in skincare products to preserve the product and increase shelf life. The EWG rates it a 3 for concerns of possible allergic reaction. It also has been shown in one or more animal studies in to have tumor formation in high doses. Along with contamination concerns during manufacturing with Hydroquinone, a FDA-restricted whitening agent. 4. Lactic Acid is an alpha ydroxyl acid (AHA), in hair products it is used to relax and smooth the hair. It can come from milk, fruit, vegetables or other plants. The EWG rates it a 4 for concerns of possible irritation to skin, lungs and eyes. It has been determined safe for use in cosmetics, subject to concentration or use limitations. 5. Fragrance- ACURE’s policy for ingredients states that it does not use any synthetic fragrances, they use only pure essential oils.
    2. Our take on this:  In my research I found that there is some concern to the safety of behentrimonium chloride and may be an ingredient you wish to avoid.  With the use of  stearalkonium chloride, lactic acid & tocopherol acetate, if you have sensitive skin we highly recommend you don’t use this product. This product has a number of very safe ingredients which benefit the hair such as marula oil which has antioxidants and essential minerals to protect your hair against the elements, nourishes your hair & fights frizz. We feel this product works exceptionally well and we have chosen to use this product as a safer option.
    3. If you have an know allergy to any of these ingredients, sensitive skin or you want to avoid these ingredients altogether, we recommend trying Carina Organics Daily Light Conditioner or Unscented Leave-In Conditioner
