SOLID SHAMPOO WITH EXTRA FOAM FOR DRY HAIR
WITH CALENDULA AND GERANIUM
This formula is made with extra foam, for those starting to use natural products or for a deep cleansing, specially when applying other non natural products in the hair. The high concentration of carrier oils in this shampoo helps to keep the hair soft and moisturised while cleaning it deeply. For a more sensitive formula try our sensitive 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 plant-based surfactants (they aren’t directly taken from nature like the surfactants created in the soap but they aren’t synthetic like the sulfates found in conventional products). The plant-based surfactants that we include in all our formulas are coming from the coconut oil (SCI, SCS and SLSA). They are all biodegradable, without parabens, other preservatives or harmful sulfates and are certified for natural cosmetic, allowing the formulations of mild products, with some amount of foam but not aggressive for our skin and hair.
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:
- Wet the shampoo bar
- Rub it on the hands to make some foam or directly on the hair.
- After using the shampoo always leave it hanged to dry or on top of a sponge. This step is very important to guarantee the right preservation of the shampoo, if it stays with water it might go bad after a few weeks.
Suggestion for conditioning the hair after shampooing: Rinse with apple cider vinegar diluted in water (1:5) to restore the hair pH. Let it work for a few minutes and wash off with water. Finish off with the hair serum for dry hair, applying it on the ends every day.
SCI (sodium cocoyl isethionate), SCS (sodium coco sulfate), calendula water infusion, coconut oil, SLSA (sodium lauryl sulfoacetate), shea butter, yellow mineral pigment, cosgard, vitamin E, essential oils: ylang ylang, geranium and bergamot. Calendula is commonly known for its regenerative properties. Has high amounts of flavonoids, which are plant metabolites that provide health benefits through cell signaling pathways and antioxidant effects. Also stimulates the production of collagen promoting stronger hair and is often used to hydrate dry scalps and remove dandruff. Geranium essential oil balances the scalp’s pH by deep-cleansing the scalp and regulating its sebum production. Ylang ylang essential oil helps to reduce hair fall and promotes conditioning and shine to the hair. 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.
