SOLID SHAMPOO FOR DRY HAIR
WITH SHIKAKAI AND TULSI
Low pH shampoo bar indicated for dry hair. The mixture of indian herbs promotes a gentle cleanse without stripping the hair from its natural oils. The high concentration of carrier oils in this shampoo helps to keep the hair soft and moisturised. For a more deeply cleanse try our extra foam shampoo for dry hair.
WHAT IS A LOW PH SHAMPOO
Contrary to a cold process soap (with a pH around 9) which is sometimes used as a shampoo, our solid shampoo has a pH between 5 to 6, closer to our skin and hair pH (4 to 5.5).
It has the ability to clean the hair keeping the pH at an optimal level. It creates less negative static electricity on the fiber surface, resulting on a more healthy hair with less frizz.
In order to promote the cleaning properties of the shampoo, we use surfactants from coconut oil, which despite being extracted in the laboratory are not synthetic and aggressive products like other sulfates found in conventional products.
We use only SCI and SLSA because they are the softest sulfates and with the lowest pH, being sufficiently effective in cleaning our hair. These surfactants are 100% biodegradable, without parabens, preservatives or harmful sulfates and are certified for natural cosmetics, allowing the formulation of gentle products, with some foam but not aggressive to our hair and skin.
WHY IS SOLID SHAMPOO MORE SUSTAINABLE
The solid shampoo avoids the use of plastic containers and is more travel friendly, specially using our cork travel box.
It uses less water in their production, making it highly concentrated and equivalent to multiple bottled liquid shampoos, that normally includes around 80% water in their formula.
It also means that you only need to use a small amount every time you wash your hair, so your solid shampoo will last longer. Is normally enough for 3 to 5 months, depending on how many times is used.
HOW TO USE
The shampoo can be used the same way you would use a soap:
1.Wet the shampoo bar
2.Rub it on the hands to make some foam or directly on the hair.
3.Always leave the shampoo on top of a sponge or a soap holder with holes for the water to go through, making sure that it dries well between uses. This step is very important to guarantee the right preservation of the shampoo, if it stays with water it might go bad after a some time.
SCI (sodium cocoyl isethionate), shikakai powder, reetha powder, water, amla powder, shea butter, cetearyl alcohol, bio coconut oil, SLSA (sodium lauryl sulfoacetate), tulsi leaf powder, natural vitamin E, cosgard, essential oil of orange, litsea and amyris.
Shikakai and reetha (also known as soapnut) are ayurvedic herbs that contain natural saponins with cleansing properties that help to create natural foam and gently remove oil from the scalp without stripping off its natural oil. Shikakai also moisturises the hair preventing split ends and the concentration of vitamins in Reetha powder enhances shine of the hair and reduces dryness.
Amla, known as the Indian gooseberry, is rich in antioxidants and vitamin A which promotes hair growth by inhibiting the activity of alpha-5 reductase which is responsible for hair loss.
Tulsi leaf powder improves blood circulation, reduces itchiness and dryness, strengthens the hair follicles and makes the roots healthy.
Shea butter contains vitamin A and E with essential fatty acids which add moisture and shine to the hair. Its non-greasy quality makes it a great moisturizer for the hair.
