MADE WITH CARE
Paraben is a preservative used in products to prolong their shelf life and to prevent bacterial or fungal growth. Parabens are known to cause irritation to the skin and in some cases may cause rosacea or dermatitis. Sulfate and paraben are chemicals found in many hair and skincare products.
Sulfate (sodium lauryl sulfate aka SLS) is a surfactant found in shampoos. Although sulfate is used to get rid of dirt and oil form the hair, it has a negative side. This ingredient is responsible for creating suds (or the extra lather) when washing your hair and it eliminates the barrier between your hair and the shampoo. Previous studies have shown how sulfate has a damaging effect on hair by inhibiting its growth.
Cruelty free means that products / brands DO NOT test their products on animals. Often this is not the case and small, innocent animals endure terribly suffering while been used to test the efficacy & ’safeness’ of products. Baby rabbits, guinea pigs and mice are left crippled, blinded and poisoned as a result of being tested with chemicals.
This is not acceptable and we do not support this! We believe that everyone should choose cruelty free products, cosmetics and brands to prevent any animals from being harmed.
The reality is that gluten-free shampoo and hair products could provide tangible benefits to highly-sensitive individuals. The skin is an incredibly absorbent organ and in turn our body absorbs the substances which we apply to it, be it moisturiser, body butter, Epsom salts or shampoo. With this in mind, and when one considers just how incredible sensitive some coeliacs can be to gluten, using shampoos that do contain gluten suddenly becomes concerning to certain skin types and skin sensitivities.
Natural hair by definition hasn't been altered by chemical straighteners, including relaxers and texturizers. Pressed hair may still be considered natural because once washed, the texture usually returns to its unaltered state (as long as no heat damage has occurred)
In terms of natural black hair, there's no one size fits all when it comes to texture and growth patterns, but in general, natural black hair usually ranges from wavy to kinky-coily, with a wide range of variation between the two.
