Our Natural Hair Care Kit is for you if:
- Your hair is lacking volume, thinning, dry or feels weak.
- Your scalp is itchy or flaky (often caused by Sulphates, which over-dry and irritate your scalp).
- You don’t enjoy harsh, synthetic chemicals running down your face and body in the shower.
- You are looking for a Curly Girl Method approved shampoo.
- You don’t want to harm aquatic life every time you wash your hair (our formula is 100% biodegradable).
- You don’t get on with shampoo bars (so tricky for longer hair)
- You want less plastic in your life.
Step 1: Scalp Scrub Pre-Shampoo Clarifier, 60g. Specifically formulated to improve your scalp health and promote conditions for optimal hair growth. Fortified with root-stimulating hibiscus flowers, organic peppermint and coconut oil. Soothing, hydrating, relieves itchiness, reduces flakes and gives dry strands a moisture boost. This is a non-foaming product, water-free formula. Smoosh and soften it in your palms before massaging onto your scalp.
Step 2: Caffeine & Rosemary Shampoo, 55g. A revolutionary water-activated powder formulated to increase volume, support growth, strengthen and soften your hair. At just over 4” tall, our concentrated plastic free shampoo powder delivers up to 3x the washes of a conventional, water-based shampoo (250ml bottle), plus you save 3 plastic bottles! It’s better for the environment, easy to transport, lightweight and convenient. Our 100% biodegradable powder transforms from powder to a rich, sudsy lather when you add water. Key organic ingredients include high-caffeine Guarana seed (Guarana has 4x more natural caffeine than coffee), stimulating Rosemary oil and strengthening Coconut Milk.
Step 3: Coconut & Sesame Conditioner, 250mL. A perfect hair cream that supports hair growth, nourishes fragile hair, detangles and smoothes frizz. This rich conditioner treats the scalp and penetrates hair strands, without weighing down your hair or leaving a greasy feeling behind. It contains a spa-like blend of pure essential oils that naturally enhance your hair-washing experience.
Step 4: Daily Hair & Body Tri-Serum, 100mL. Replaces 3 other products sitting on your bathroom shelf: deep conditioning hair treatment, anti-frizz serum and body moisturiser/oil. This formula is beautifully scented with Rose Geranium and Sweet Orange, making for a relaxing and spa-like experience every time you apply it. Our Tri-Serum is nourishing, smoothing and works for all skin and hair types.
HOW LONG DOES THE KIT LAST?
One of our tiny shampoo bottles is the equivalent of 3 x 250ml conventional, water-based shampoo bottles. Our conditioner is a full 250mL size. The length and thickness of you hair will determine how fast you go through the shampoo and conditioner. The Scalp Scrub contains 5-7 applications on average. Our Tri-Serum can be used in multi ways and is 100mL in size.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE THESE PRODUCTS?
Scalp Scrub: 1 – 2 x/week
Shampoo & Conditioner: 1 – 3 x/week
Daily Hair & Body Tri-Serum: Daily use in a variety of ways from head to toe
CAN I USE THIS SHAMPOO ON COLOUR-TREATED HAIR?
Yes, all our haircare can be used on colour-treated hair. When in use, our haircare products have an ideal pH range for colour-treated hair and contain no sulphates, so usage won’t result in excess colour-stripping. Washing your hair with anything, even water, will cause some colour to fade but it’s the products that are more alkaline (pH 7+) that cause excess colour stripping. Don’t forget: if you have recently coloured your hair, you should wait a few days to let your colour “bake-in” before your first wash (advice that goes for shampooing in general).
IS THIS GOOD FOR CURLY HAIR?
Yes, these products are sulphate and alcohol free, making them a great option if you are looking for Curly Girl Method approved low-poo shampoo.
IS IT NATURAL AND VEGAN?
YES! All products in the Natural Hair Care Kit are is 100% plant-based and natural, apart from the Coconut & Sesame Conditioner which requires 1% preservative. All products are vegan, cruelty free and 100% biodegradable.
DOES THE KIT CONTAIN SLS (SULPHATES)?
NO! We don’t use any Sulphates to achieve our signature foamy shampoo lather. Instead we use a mild coconut-derived cleanser, which is very gentle on delicate hair.
IS IT GLUTEN FREE?
Yes, all products are gluten free. We use organic wheatgerm oil in the shampoo formulation. This is a gluten free oil, despite sounding to the contrary. The refining process to make wheatgerm oil removes the gluten proteins from the final product. A gluten free ingredient declaration statement is available upon request.
IS IT SOY FREE?
Yes, our products are soy free. We use organic coconut milk powder in the formulation and organic Maltodextrin makes up 2.5% of this ingredient. Our Maltodextrin is derived from organic Tapioca starch, which is extracted from a tuberous South American Cassava root.
IS IT NUT FREE?
All of our products are nut free. However, we use ingredients that may have been packed on premises that handles nuts (including peanuts), seeds, cereals, soy and products containing gluten prior to coming to our facility for mixing up into our lovely range of products.
WILL THIS WORK IN HARD WATER AREAS?
YES! This shampoo has been formulated to have an optimal pH range, so hard water won’t have a negative effect on the cleansing ability.
The main active ingredient in our formula is Guarana seed. Guarana is higher in caffeine than coffee (around 4 times higher)! (1). Our caffeinated hair growth shampoo promotes healthy hair growth by helping stimulate circulation, increasing blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles.(2)
Organic Rosemary Oil
Formulated with organic Rosemary oil. Rosemary oil is used widely in the Mediterranean, and is scientifically to proven to promote hair growth (3). Rosemary oil boosts circulation, helping hair follicles from being starved of blood supply, dying off, and potentially leading to further hair loss. Rosemary is also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which helps with itching and dry scalp (4).This is very powerful oil used widely in the Mediterranean to promote thick hair. Rosemary essential oil boosts circulation, helping hair follicles from being starved of blood supply, dying off, and potentially leading to further hair loss. Rosemary is also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which helps with itching and dry scalp.
Organic Coconut Milk
Coconut milk contains lauric acid, protein, and vitamins E, B1, B3, B5, and B6. It’s a natural conditioner that nourishes, softens and strengthens hair. It’s also very gentle on your scalp.
Hibiscus Flowers & Peppermint Leaf
Hibiscus-Mint is truly a hair-match, made in heaven. Hibiscus flower and leaf extract is widely used throughout the tropics by men and women to enhance and beautify their hair and support healthy hair growth. Hibiscus is naturally a little acidic and this helps reduce greasiness and excess oil build up on the scalp. Aside from smelling delicious, Peppermint oil is one of the best natural ingredients for stimulating hair growth and keeping the scalp happy and healthy. Applying peppermint oil topically, and in the correct strength, may have the potential to increase depth, size, and number of hair follicles over time.
Cold-pressed Argan Oil
Argan oil is rich in beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin E, squalene and antioxidants, and it’s because of this rich fatty acid profile that it does wonders for your skin and hair. Our Argan oil production supports various women’s cooperatives in Morocco. Interestingly the Argan nut is harvested both using the Argan tree itself and the local goats. The goats like to climb the Argan trees to consume the fruit. Moroccan women in the Co-op harvest the kernels left behind by the goats, then split and process the kernels into a sumptuous, healthy oil that we can use to replenish our skin and hair. Talk about zero waste!
Organic Castor Seed Oil
Castor seeds are an ancient crop and subsequently their thick, nourishing, sap-like oil has been used in countless formulations for centuries. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that castor seed oil encourages hair growth, but we like to focus more on its potent moisturising and gloss-giving properties. Castor seed oil penetrates and protects the hair strands, leaving them with a beautiful shine. It’s high in ricinoleic acid, which helps balance the pH of your scalp, and restore it from damage caused by harsh ingredients (like Sulphates, SLS). As for application on skin, you can expect the same benefits. Castor seed oil gives our serum a richness that provides intense skin nourishment without being greasy.
