Abyssinian Oil can assist in the dispersion of pigments and promote an even smooth delivery of the final formulated product and prevents "caking." It also offers exceptional benefits for all hair types. This Carrier Oil produces a sheen and the oil glides onto the hair surface to form a very light continuous lipid layer which provides lubricity to help detangle and lock in essential moisture.
