Rosehip Strand Essence is the hero product from the Ade range, light and fluffy this butter is great! A little goes along way with this, it has worked wonders for my hair this week and is going into my ever expanding re buy pile! 

  • Rosehip Botanical Extract - The Rosehip plant produces an amazing little berry that is not only packed with Vitamin C, Essential Fatty Acids, and healthy minerals, it contains an extract that is prized as a natural skin and hair care ingredient. 


  • Silk Amino Acids - Silk amino acids penetrate the hair to strengthen, rebuild & nourish chemically damaged hair without weighing it down or causing buildup. These amino acids go deep down inside of the damaged hair cuticle to repair and protect it. They are hydroscopic, therefore having excellent moisture binding qualities. It adds softness, body and strength to the hair. 


  • Mango Butter - Mango butter contains high levels of antioxidants and beneficial vitamins A, C, and E. It has been proven that vitamins A and C have a direct influence on hair growth making this ingredient a very important contributor to healthy hair. This natural butter also helps shield against harmful UV rays protecting both the hair and scalp from potential sun damage, making it an extremely effective sunscreen for the hair.

  • Palm Butter - Palm oil contains the hard to find toctrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family. It also contains a refatting agent that helps restore the hair and skin natural oils most soaps and shampoos strip away letting moisture escape.

  • Soy Butter - Soy Butter re-hydrates and replenishes the hairs lipid barrier to help hold in moisture. Soy Beans are extremely high in lecithin, sterolins, vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acids and isoflavones.

  • Jojoba Oil - Conditions hair and prevents it from becoming brittle and dull. If there is too much sebum build-up on the scalp it dissolves and removes it therefore keeping the scalp and hair in harmonious balance.

  • Oat Oil - Provides many of the beneficial properties of traditional dry grain oats while delivering a greater concentration of important omega fatty acids and anti-oxidants. It improves the elasticity of the skin and hair because it possesses exceptional emolliency making it penetrate rapidly. Its fatty acid composition includes over 35% omega fatty acids, and it is a noteworthy source of anti-oxidants. (info via Ade Vegan Hair)

Overall I really liked Ade Vegan Hair, if I have one Critisism it would be that the labels, though beautifully printed they are made from paper and have started to come away from the products, this takes nothing away from the actual products themselves as they work! but perhaps lamented labels would work better. A lot of love went into these products they have a beautiful hand crafted feel and a lovely aroma, I hope to see Ade Vegan Hair grow!
