We used to call this product "Raindrop" Shampoo because it contains MSM, a hair softening organic sulfur compound found in rainwater. MSM is known as a "miracle hair growth enhancer" so we just had to include it in our Shampoo. Research has shown that MSM combined with magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP), a vitamin C derivative results in heathly hair regrowth.
We've expanded our hair ingredient repertoire to take advantage of the wonderful new generation of plant derived, gentle surfactants available today. Thankfully, increased consumer awareness has driven the demand for much safer ingredients that are also eco-friendly. This means we can have the best of both worlds: safer + high performing. Ingredients that are:
* Gentle / Non-Stripping
* Safe for commercially color treated hair
* Plastic free
* pH appropriate (approx. 5.5)
* Easy to use
* Free of sulfates, SLS and other harsh surfactants, silicones, parabens, and endocrine disruptors found in artificial fragrance.
* Bonus -- this bar acts also as a body wash and body shaving bar! Talk about saving space when packing for travel.
Ever notice how soft your hair feels after it dries from being in the rain? MSM is an ingredient we love for skin and scalp hydration and repair, which promotes healthy hair growth. It can also be found in our Hydrate Toning Mist.
MSM Shampoo pairs perfectly with our Hyaluronic Conditioner, which can be purchased individually or in a Set. The use of a vinegar rinse is unnecessary with this type of Shampoo since the pH is already hair-appropriate. Give them a try! They come in Unscented, Violet Unscented (for gray or blonde hair) or essential oil scented including Floral, Citrus, and Shrub (our popular Rosemary-Cedarwood scent).
MSM Shampoo is conditioning, however, the percentage of surfactants and essential oils used for each scent lend them to differing hair types. If you have chronically oily hair, we recommend trying our clarifying Tallow Shampoo Soaps.
Important - for longest life of your Shampoo Bar, keep on a well draining soap lift between uses! You may need to remove it from shower in order to completely dry between uses.
Directions: Cleansing hair with this type of product is super easy. Wet your hair, wet the bar and rub directly onto your hair, creating a luscious lather. Work lather into your scalp with fingertips. Rinse. Repeat. Follow with one of our Hyaluronic Conditioners.
If you are new to silicone free Shampoo, you may experience a transition period, which may include a waxy feeling, itchy scalp, extra oiliness, etc. Most people transition with ease with this type of shampoo, even in hard water. Try our Pit & Scalp Mask for dandruff or to speed up the detox period from a lifelong use of commercial hair products.
