Minimalist Cleansing Shampoo was created as a solution for clients who are looking for a naturally derived shampoo, but are sensitive to aromas or are in close contact with others who have fragrance/scent sensitivities. The Cleansing Shampoo does exactly what it says- it gives hair a clean, fresh feel. Our blend of natural surfactants and chelators wash away dirt, oil, pollution, and product build up without leaving hair feeling stripped and dry. This shampoo can be used on color treated hair without worry of premature fading. Panthenol, heptyl undecylenate (a natural silicone alternative derived from castor), and aloe vera help to improve shine, moisture balance, and texture. Isoamyl laurate helps to reduce static. Our infusion of organic rose petals gives volume and adds the antioxidant benefits from fresh roses without adding any fragrance.
Fine hair: This shampoo can be used as often as daily.
Medium hair textures: This can be used as often as daily, but if you wash daily we recommend alternating with a co-wash.
Coarse, Dry, or Damaged textures: Use once or twice a week (or less frequent), using only when your hair feels dirty. If you must wash more than twice per week, alternate this shampoo with a co-wash.
*Many clients feel that their hair stays cleaner for longer with use of this product, so even habitual daily washers may find themselves waiting an extra day between shampoos.
Directions: Dispense a quarter sized amount of product into palms and rub palms together. apply to your scalp and massage in. It is not necessary to apply the product to the length of your hair, getting a good lather at the scalp and rinsing thoroughly should clean all of your hair. Do not add more product to increase spreadability- this will not work to increase spreadability and it will require extra rinsing. For increased lather and spreadability, apply the product to your scalp, quickly run your hair under a stream of water, and re-lather (naturally derived surfactants do not bubble as quickly as synthetic surfactants do, so adding this bit of water is usually necessary.) Rinse product completely clean and follow with a rinse out conditioner or a detangler.
