The Benefits of Sage.

MALIN+GOETZ NEW Body Wash: Sage!   The same beloved natural scent found in our Sage Styling Cream, sage has astringent properties and antioxidants that protect skin from damage. Other benefits: increases blood circulation, relieves symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, stimulates cell renewal, encourages hair growth and minimizes hair loss.  Phew!  Next time you lather up or style your coif, remember that it’s not just about the delicious smell, but also your health.

Did you know?  We formulate for sensitive skin.  Each treatment is free of parabens, harsh detergents, dyes and synthetic fragrances. Our treatments are naturally-scented and while they smell beautiful our goal is therapeutic.  Like chemists from years ago, we use botanicals that serve a purpose.  I’m constantly impressed by their power and different uses.

Sage Body Wash Product Tips:  In those drier winter months, add a couple capfuls of Sage Body Wash to a warm bath to soothe dry, itchy skin and breathe in the invigorating herbal scent to help clear sinuses and relax your mind!

An Evening With Birchbox.

By Erica, National Training Manager

I’ve recently had the pleasure of training the lovely staff at Birchbox. If you guys are anything like me, then you are OBSESSED with Birchbox! I wait patiently each month for my little box to arrive with all its fun treats inside. MALIN+GOETZ has teamed up with them and some of you lucky subscribers will be receiving samples from us. When I went to train their team on all things M+G, I was blown away when I walked into their beautiful news-style office. Everyone there is so happy, super warm, and it’s apparent that they truly LOVE their jobs. I jumped right into training their customer service team and instantly felt at ease and welcomed in front of the large group. They asked very thoughtful questions and were already in love with M+G, which makes my job that much more fun. Afterwards, we shared some laughs and macaroons, celebrating our collaboration.

As I turned to grab my things and leave, someone had left me a Birchbox as a gift. I am not ashamed to admit that I tore into it as soon as the elevator doors closed. The whole evening was a reminder of why I love what I do. Thank you Birchbox! I can’t wait for my next box to arrive!

Dry Scalp and Dandruff

09.20.2011 | Posted by MALIN+GOETZ in Advice, Skin Conditions

“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.
