When making the switch to natural haircare you might experience a period of an oily, dense or waxy feeling. We, natural fellows, refer to it as the transition phase. It can be quite confronting and make your hair feel unwashed. It's completely normal and it is just a sign of product buildup on your scalp. By doing an acid rinse you will help to restore the pH balance on your scalp and remove prior product buildup, thus helping to transition quicker. It will leave your hair silky smooth and tangle free, it's even so good that you mightn't even require a conditioner. Acid rinses are also a must-do for those of us living with hard water (more alkaline) as they're able to balance the pH by dissolving the magnesium and calcium that binds to your hair from the water.
When applied to the hair, French Clays are able to keep dandruff at bay by eliminating dead skins cells and draw out excess oil without stripping your hair of it's natural oils. These gentle but powerful ingredients help us to create a shampoo bar that is moisturising and able to cleanse your hair without damaging your natural scalp oil composition.
