All About Shampoo
Some people with curly hair go to such extremes to control their frizzy hair that they completely avoid using shampoos and never clean their hair via traditional methods. This method claims that the natural oils from hair should not be removed, and instead preaches rinsing out hair with only conditioner. In a world without dust, cars, cigarette smoke or the hundreds of other pollutants we encounter daily, this concept could be effective. The natural oils from the scalp certainly do help tame wild, frizzy hair, but curly hair is especially vulnerable to toxins, as the hair shaft tends to be much more porous. This means that not only do curls lose moisture quickly, they also absorb pollution much more than straight hair does.
The truth is, all shampoos do not need to be harsh cleansers. Using the right ingredients to clean your hair can leave it feeling much softer and healthier than not using any shampoo at all. Our shampoos are specially formulated to provide additional strength and moisture. We do this by using the best ingredients and maintaining a low pH level of 4.5-5.5. These formulas allow you to cleanse your curls without stripping away the natural oils that protect your hair and scalp. They also help to repair damage and improve the elasticity of your hair, which can be lost during chemical treatments like colouring, perming or relaxing. Both Treatment Shampoo and Silk Shampoo are gentle enough to be used every day if required, though most curly heads don’t need to wash their hair daily.
It is important to note that all shampoos must be thoroughly rinsed from your hair and scalp.
Which shampoo is right for me?
Treating curly hair means walking a tightrope between moisture and strength. Some curly hair needs more moisture than strength and vice versa. That’s why I created two unique shampoos – curly hair needs both strength and moisture. Silk Shampoo restores moisture to curly hair, while Treatment Shampoo provides extra strength.
At different times, and under different conditions, your hair has different needs. During cold winters, indoor heating drives moisture out of your hair, making some curly hair uncontrollable. In summer, hot muggy conditions require advanced frizz control.
The success of chemical services on curly hair depends on the strength of the products used. Research has proved that Treatment Shampoo will dramatically improve the condition of the hair and will prolong the lifespan of colours and perms.
We created Silk Shampoo and Treatment Shampoo with the help of input from the Curly Hair Club. These products contain generous doses of essential ingredients that we’ve been researching over the past ten years. All types of curly hair will benefit from these shampoos, and they can be used safely on a daily basis.
