“What is the difference between your three shampoos? I like and use the Moisturizing Shampoo. Which one should I use with the Cilantro Hair Conditioner if I have dandruff and dry scalp?”

We have several thoughts regarding dandruff and dry scalp and each shampoo and conditioners use. First, please know that all of our hair care is appropriate for any processed hair, including Brazilian Straightening.

Moisturizing Shampoo and Cilantro Conditioner: If you are currently using the Moisturizing Shampoo with the Cilantro Conditioner and it works – stick with it! All of our hair care products are designed to address the scalp without irritation, and the Moisturizing Shampoo is formulated to be intensely hydrating for dry and damaged hair and dry scalp. Our Cilantro Conditioner is a great compliment to any of our three shampoos as a daily conditioner for both the hair and scalp. It is nourishing, hydrating and absorbent (like all of our moisturizers, it is a botanical fatty acid base so that it absorbs without residue and irritation), and an excellent follow up to any of the cleansers. If you feel you need additional hydration, our Intensive Hair Mask may be integrated once a week and can also be used as a daily conditioner when more is needed.

Peppermint Shampoo: Is a daily use cleanser designed to be naturally hydrating and gently clarifying without drying or stripping. It is a great daily shampoo to use on its own and as an alternate to the Moisturizing Shampoo. Adding the Peppermint Shampoo a few times per week in place of the Moisturizing Shampoo may help remove dry skin build up and leave you with a more “clean” feeling.

Gentle Neroli Shampoo: Is a daily use shampoo designed for sensitive scalp and for frequent washing. It is quite soothing and calming and ideal for individuals who wash their frequently (perhaps you wash a second time after the gym or swimming, etc.) and/or have sensitive scalp conditions. It can be a nice alternative to our Peppermint Shampoo if you do not like peppermint.

Styling and Leave-in Conditioning: We offer two great styling products, Sage Styling Cream and Hair Pomade, both are natural fixatives, the pomade being firmer. In some cases, the fixatives can be drying to a scalp already irritated or prone to dryness. We would recommend using them more on the ends of the hair for styling and avoid the scalp altogether. For Leave-in Conditioning and Styling, both our Cilantro Conditioner and our Intensive Hair Mask provide options as light, leave-in conditioners. For the hair, they can offer texture and direction (finer hair would use the Cilantro Conditioner and damaged, course, and dry hair the Intensive Hair Mask) when used sparingly. For the scalp, you can massage a little into the scalp after washing and upon towel drying. This will continually moisturize the scalp throughout the day to combat dryness.
