Glossary

Chébé (croton gratissimus var zambezicus)

Chébé is a plant which grows only in the highlands of Chad in Central Africa. This nutrient-rich seed is naturally packed with antioxidants, vitamins and oleic acids– essentials for beautiful hair. Chadian women have been using it in haircare rituals for millennia to achieve strong, long, soft, and luxurious hair– a rare phenomenon for tighter textures. In techniques passed down from mother to daughter through generations, Chébé is harvested, sundried, roasted, powdered, and mixed with other ingredients to strengthen and lengthen the hair. Our founder, Chadian native Salwa Petersen, inherited from her great-grandmother heirloom Chébé seeds, 100x more powerful than all other Chébé commonly found in Chad.

These seeds have grown into our own organic regenerative farm. We carefully oversee every step of the Chébé process in-house, ensuring that the hair-fortifying nutrients of the seed are preserved. Our single-source heirloom Chébé extract is used to create SALWA PETERSEN® ChébéBond Complex™, the primary active ingredient in our namesake salon-quality formulas to benefit every curl, coil, kink and wave. Our complex is made in our state-of-art Paris lab and clinically proven to promote stronger, longer, softer hair. There’s no comparison. Demand the best.

Damage

Split ends and breakage are caused by everything from heat and chemicals, to UV rays and pollution. Don't worry, it's easy to repair your hair and protect it against heat and future damage with leave-ins and masks that nurture from root to tip. For the ultimate hair repair, start with our deep conditioning Chébiotic™ Repairing Mask that restores hair in just 5 minutes.

Dryness

When strands are brittle, and waves, curls, kinks, or coils don't bounce like they used to, it means your hair is craving extra moisture. Look to our Chébé Hydrating Shampoo and Chébé Hair Milk, One-Step Detangler to deliver a dose of hydration.

Thinning

Thinning can occur naturally with age, or as a result of an outside factor like stress or repetitive, tight hairstyling. Help to prevent and reduce the appearance of thinning with volumizing products, plus our Chébé du Tchad Anti-Breakage treatment that strengthens existing strands and promotes healthier new hair growth, long-term. Our Chébé + HA™ Nourishing Conditioner is a quick daily or weekly treatment with hyaluronic acid to plump your hair and give you much needed volume.

Frizz

Frizz happens when hair is thirsty for moisture. Embrace it as-is, or smooth and define strands using Chébé Buttercream Styling Cream, Chébé Styling Gelée, Light Hold and Oil of Chébé™.

Scalp Health

Get to the root of your hair woes. Say good riddance to build up with a detox, then target concerns like dryness and itchiness with our scalp-treating Chébiotic™ Repairing Mask that helps to boost new hair growth, thanks to its microbiome-friendly formula.

Chemically Treated Hair

When hair has been processed with chemical-based products such as relaxers, perms, texturizers, texture releases, keratin treatments, hair colors & dyes, highlights and bleaching, it will need a little extra love. All SALWA PETERSEN® Chébé products are clinically-proven to be safe for chemically-treated hair.
