What is Cassia Obovata? How Does it Help With Your Hair?

Cassia Deep Conditioner Before and AFTER

Even the loudest and proudest Natural CurlFriend would admit that caring for our hair type can be confusing, frustrating, and confoundingly inconsistent. We’ve all experienced the disappointment of a deep conditioner or styling product that didn’t live up to its name. You leave it on for anywhere from 15 minutes to eight hours, but, once rinsed, your hair is once again thirsty for moisture. Worse, the product worked perfectly the first time, but when you used it again, you got completely different results.

Whether due to genetics, heat styling, or chemical damage, dry hair is no fun. It’s more difficult to style, tends to look dull, and is prone to breakage. But how can you get luscious locks that actually look and feel healthy? The secret comes from the ancient world of Ayurvedic medicine. Cassia obovata is a perennial herb traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine and hair care. For centuries, cassia obovata has been used as a powerful and lasting moisture infuser.



Suitable for all hair textures, cassia obovata can work wonders when it comes to conditioning. It’s packed with naturally occurring nutrients that can help restore and renew your hair. Your strands can fully absorb cassia and benefit from its active compounds, which include elasticity-boosting flavonoids and strengthening tannins. This helps repair the keratin in the hair cuticle, leading to a shinier look, better moisture retention, and increased tensile strength.


Along with conditioning, cassia obovata can also help solve your dandruff problem. Dandruff, which is usually caused by an overly dry scalp, tends to disappear with the use of cassia obovata. Cassia powder delivers nutrients to the scalp when mixed with water and applied as a paste. Cassia obovata also contains anthraquinones and chrysophanic acid, which inhibit the growth of fungus and microbes. If you suffer from dandruff, you may have weaker hair due to poor scalp conditions. Cassia can help restore your scalp so new hair grows nice and strong; it’s great for boosting your curl pattern as well!


Cassia obovata also helps bring out the shine in your hair. It is perfect for those who deal with dry, dull hair caused by blow dryers, styling irons, hair products, and other factors. And unlike your run-of-the-mill deep conditioner, when you leave a cassia conditioner on your hair, it’s absorbed into your strands and remains in your hair after you rinse. And what’s left will never leave your hair dull or dry. Instead, you’ll enjoy health and shine for days after your treatment.


People with thin or damaged hair can use cassia obovata to add definition and volume to their hair. It helps lift the hair roots to make thinning hair look fuller and more defined.


Every curlicue, no matter the pattern of curl, can benefit a lot from cassia obovata. It’s perfect for those that are dealing with undefined and torn-down curls because the plant will help curls form into the best version of their natural shape, get the strands clumped together, and make the hair extra soft.


If you color-treat your hair, blow-dry regularly, or have limp, lackluster strands, cassia obovata will be your hair’s best friend. Many users have reported shinier, healthier hair after just one use. In addition, users who have added a cassia conditioning treatment to their hair care regimen say they have stronger and overall improved hair.
