    Marshmallow adds 'slip', which makes detangling easier.

    Nettle is used for shine, and is also supposed to be great against hair loss (read more about it here: http://www.majon.com/articles/Health_and_Beauty/nettle_for_hair_2278.html )

    Pectin is a gelling agent, which means it just gets...well, like a gel

    My knowledge is limited, though, so if anyone else has something to add, enlighten us ;-)

    Pectin: An enzyme extracted from citrus fruits and apples. Used as a thickener and gelling agent that is very soothing to the skin http://www.vytonorganics.com/page.php?s=g

    Nettle- hair shampoos and conditioners are common in health food stores, as are skin treatments. Nettle helps to stimulate hair follicles, regulate scalp oil buildup, prevent hair loss and renders it soft and glossy. http://www.amberswaves.com/nettles.html

    For your hair:
    Marshmallow is a medicated, conditioning, mucilaginous herb that provides an abundance of 'slip' which helps to nourish and detangle naturally curly.http://www.mythbusterbeauty.com/2007/09/19/when-putting-marshmallow-in-your-hair-is-a-good-idea/
