Vitruvian Beauty Billionx Repair

Hydrating damaged hair shampoo: Gentle cleansing treatment and moisturizer with organic argan oil and shea butter for dry, frizzy or curly hair.

Vitruvian Beauty Billionx Repair Damaged Hair Shampoo takes a two-way approach to caring for permed hair. The formula does not contain any sulfate, silicone or parabens that can ultimately damage your hair. It also relies on several natural oils to return moisture to permed hair. These oils include the popular argan oil, but also the far less expected broccoli seed oil. The broccoli oil acts similar to silicone, providing moisture and a protective barrier but without leaving behind a harmful residue. Other moisturizers in the shampoo are shea butter and mango butter. The mango butter has an added benefit of protecting against damaging UV rays.

Pros:

  • Natural ingredients
  • Protection against frizz and breakage
  • Doesn’t weigh hair down

Cons:

  • Can take up to two weeks to see results
  • Small bottles
