Silk Amino Acids: Eighteen naturally-derived (literally extracted during the silkworms process of creating silk) silk amino acids prompts an assortment of hair and scalp benefits. Some of these benefits include strengthened hair fibers and natural restoration for flawless hair health. In addition, the high molecular weight of the silk amino acids results in the formation of a substantive film to increase scalp permeability. Includes L-Alanine, Glycine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Threonine, and more.
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, and Green Tea: These helpful ingredients are fast-absorbing and commit moisturizing qualities to dry and delicate hair strands. Shea butter, in
particular, contains vitamins A and E, making it an excellent natural moisturizer for the hair. It locks in moisture without leaving the hair greasy or heavy. The gel-like substance of aloe vera, on the other hand, makes it a great conditioning agent as well. It has a similar composition to keratin (the natural protein in the hair), which allows it to easily penetrate the entire length of the hair shaft. Green tea contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which strengthens hair roots, activates hair follicles and promotes hair growth.
Pomegranate, Hibiscus and Sea Buckthorn: Certified blend assists in repairing damaged hair follicles to revitalize healthy, flowing hair. Pomegranate contains ellagic acid, which prevents the moisture in the hair from drying out. Hibiscus (“the flower of hair care”) helps prevent dryness, dullness, and hair damage. It also prevents problems like dandruff, split ends, and premature graying. Sea buckthorn, on the other hand, contains high levels of Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9, as well as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K that promote healthy skin and hair.
Argan and Jojoba: These two essential components help provide relief by moisturizing sensitive scalps. These also help maintain hair volume, an essential component to preserving hair color. Argan, in particular, is proven to make hair softer, shinier, silkier, and softer. It also tames frizzy hair and treats split ends. Jojoba keeps the scalp moist and stimulates hair growth.
Botanical Keratin: By definition, keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins, which contribute to the composition of hair. Essential at every level, weak quantities of keratin can be the cause of frizzy and unmanageable hair. This naturally derived ingredient helps replenishes ideal keratin content for strong, durable hair.
Vanilla: Light and sweet, 100% natural vanilla undertones mildly sweeten the formula for an overall delightful and refreshing conditioning experience.

My opinion

Click on image to enlarge

                Maple Holistics Silk18 worked great on my hair. My curls were popping after using the product. I even saw some baby hair rising.  I love the fact that the product is so light it does not weight the hair down. I applied the product right after shampooing my hair.  My hair absorbed it very fast and the result was immediately noticeable. I left the product on my hair for about 10 minutes, then I rinsed it out.  While it was very easy to wash the product out, I cannot say that it was easy to run a comb through my hair after applying the product. But after rinsing my hair, it was manageable, nourished, and very strong. I would say that Maple Holistics Silk18 felt more like a protein treatment on my hair. I had to follow up with a  moisturizing deep conditioner after using the product because my hair can be very sensitive to protein at times.

  • Nicely packaged
  • Fresh Vanilla scent
  • Sulfate-free
  • Easy to apply
  • Strengthens and nourishes the hair
  • Adds shine
  • Works as promised
  • No directions on the bottle itself ( I did receive a card with the directions )
The bottom line

           If you are looking for a conditioner that provides slip, this conditioner is not for you. But if you have thin, lifeless strands that need a protein boost and more shine, this product is worth every penny.  Maple Holistics Silk18 locks in moisture, strengthens the hair,  and provides shine. I would not recommend this product to somebody whose hair is already protein sensitive.

  12. It sounds like a really great product, I like the ingredient a lot! Thanks for the review!


  13. You hair is shiny, looks like a nice product.

  14. And the products keep coming. Great review, Nerline. :)


  15. I never knew there was such a thing as protein sensitivity...I have so much to learn about hair care. Does that mean that it reacted to it in some way...like itchy or irritating? Some product do that to my hair no matter how environtmentally friendly they are. Still trying to figure that out. Any ideas what can cause that...or may I should compare labels, lol. Lovely review Nerline.


  16. AWesome review! It sounds amazing.

  17. Hmm sounds good to me. I love a product with a good slip. Great review as always.

  18. Excellent review. You always introduce me to something new and I love that.

  19. Thanks babe. Lightweight will definitely work on your hair.

  20. I know. It helped a lot, but I think it should be on the bottle.

  21. I think using good judgement will be best if you lose the card. But I would rather have my directions on the bottle too.

  22. Oh, Lenya! I love your overactive imagination. But can we please pretend that it is so? Because the product did leave my hair shiny after all.

  23. Nerline, i can see the glossy shine in your hair. Beautiful review darling.


  24. Protein sensitivity only happens when your hair already has too much protein and you add more protein to it, either via shampoo or deep conditioner. I think in your case it is your scalp that is sensitive to certain products. Thanks so much honey. You made a good point.
