This organic scalp-friendly treatment shampoo has a pH of 4.5, a gentle, non-stripping level for protecting sensitive scalp and hair. Formulated with organic barley extract as the main ingredient, it promotes healthy scalp and hair growth. A blend of fermented seeds: barley, turmeric, sesame, oat, and black bean, providing a boost of antioxidants and enriching the hair, while organic aloe vera extract deeply soothes and moisturizes. It uses a gentle, non-ionic (less foamy but less skin-irritating) surfactant derived from coconut to replace anionic and alkaline surfactants that increase the friction between the hairs, leading to damaged and fizzy hair.
Salt is used as a natural thickening agent, but its essential minerals also help de-grease excess oils in hair and scalp, relieve itching and other scalp issues, including dandruff. It softens, hydrates, protects, and repairs damaged hair as well. A naturally-derived PHA, gluconolactone, balances the pH close to the natural hair and scalp acidity and gently sloughs away dead skin cells, debris, and scalp buildups to prevent dandruff and improve scalp hair density.
This formula naturally softens, moisturizes, detangles, and adds shines to the hair.
How to use
Apply a quarter-sized amount onto wet hair and then work into your roots and massage into scalp, then thoroughly rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, follow with moisturizing treatment or mask.
What else you need to know
Human hair and scalp have a pH between 4.5 and 5.5. This natural hair acidity prevents microbial growth in the hair and scalp and keeps the cuticle healthy and resilient. Alkaline shampoo strips natural oils and sebums, protecting the scalp and hair, leading to overproduction of sebum and oils to compensate for the loss, making your hair get oily and dirty quicker. Moreover, alkaline environments induce hair cuticles to open, causing dry, itchy, and flaky scalp. Alkaline pH can also increase the hair's negative electrical charge, which increases the friction between hair, leading to cuticle damage and fiber breakage. Gentle, non-stripping, acidic-balanced shampoo benefits natural hair by reducing frizz and dryness, preventing breakage, and tangling while keeping the cuticle sealed to retain proper moisture and balance. Maintaining the hair's natural balance can also keep your hair looking cleaner for a longer time.
