Shampoo shouldn’t strip the hair or scalp of moisture yet so many shampoos out there contain harsh detergents such as Sulphates meaning shampoo could be the biggest danger to your hair and scalp, causing dehydration, scalp irritation and even dandruff.
Our award winning shampoos are completely sulphate-free, gentle cleansers that help to soothe and calm the scalp whilst adding moisture to hair for natural shine and strength.

What is Shampoo?
Shampoo is a hair care product that is used to clean and remove dirt, oil, and other impurities from the hair and scalp. It is typically applied to wet hair, then massaged into a lather, and rinsed out. Shampoo works by using a combination of water and surfactants (cleansing agents) to lift and remove dirt and impurities from the hair. Many shampoos also contain ingredients like conditioners and moisturizers to help improve the health and appearance of the hair.
What are Sulphates?
Sulphates are detergents used as a cleaning agent in shampoo as well as many types of cleansing products. They are most commonly known for their lathering ability but the downside is that they can be too good at cleaning, stripping away the natural moisture from the hair and scalp causing dehydration, colour fade and scalp irritation.
Our Daily Calma and Heightened shampoo are completely sulphate-free and instead contain a far more gentle cleansing agent derived from Coconut. This has one main benefit, that your hair will not be stripped of its natural moisture and your scalp will be protected from irritation. This will also help to prolong hair colour by limiting fade and help keratin remain in hair for longer
