Why Your Hair Needs Shampoo & Conditioner

We know it's the easier option to use the same 5-in-1 product to wash your hair, body and face but, for the sake of one extra step, the benefits of using dedicated hair care products are HUGE.

And with issues like thinning hair and hair loss becoming more common at a younger age, we're here to talk you through why switching to a good quality shampoo and conditioner should be top of your to-do list.

There are a whole host of cheap and cheerful shampoos and conditioners on the market but - NEWS FLASH! - these can actually cause more harm than good to your hair as they are made up of chemicals that can cause split ends, frizziness, and dry out your hair by stripping natural oils from your scalp.

But that doesn't mean you have to stump up £30 for a salon brand alternative. Our range of shampoos and conditioners offer premium haircare without the premium price tag.

Let's start off with shampoo…

Our Revive Moisture Shampoo will leave your hair feeling squeaky clean and smelling heavenly without stripping away its natural moistures.

The alcohol-free formula works instantly to disperse dirt and grime from deep within your hair follicles. As a result, not only will your hair look and smell incredible, but our Revive Moisture Shampoo moisturises the hair AND scalp for a perfectly flake-free finish.

We've carefully selected the finest natural ingredients that work to leave your hair silky smooth and excellently conditioner, including:
- Mandarin oil disperses dirt and grime and makes rinsing easier
- Sandalwood Essential Oil to clarify, tone, and soothe the skin on your scalp
- Pro-vitamin B5 to help moisturise the hair and scalp
- Meadowfoam Seed Oil's fatty acid to condition
- Amisoft produces a silky feel and prevents dry, coarse hair.

Moving on to conditioner…

We know what you're thinking - 'I've shampooed so my hair's clean that's all that matters!' Wrong.

There are many reasons your hair will appreciate a conditioner. Think about what it goes through on a daily basis, from damage caused by combing and styling to sun and pollution drying it out. All this damage can result in hair appearing straw-like and dull, and worst of all, even breaking off - and you don't want that!

So, while the shampoo is excellent for cleansing dirt oil from your hair and scalp, you also need to hydrate your hair to keep it looking its best. This is where the conditioner steps in.

Our Deep Moisture Conditioner works to deeply condition and detangle your hair for effortlessly luscious locks. It also adds nutrients and moisture to your hair strands to protect and strengthen them. Check out our power list of nutritious ingredients that your hair will LOVE!

- Avocado Oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, allowing it to penetrate the hair shaft and moisturise hair
- Sandalwood Essential Oil has natural moisturising properties
- Pro-vitamin B5 conditions the hair and scalp
- Ncroquat™ Behenyl TMS is extremely effective as a hair detangler
- Vitamin E's natural antioxidant properties support a healthy scalp and hair. It helps reduce oxidative stress and free radicals that cause the hair follicle cells in the scalp to break down.
- Sandalwood Essential Oil's antibacterial properties soothe the scalp, eliminate flaking and help prevent infections

So now you're clued up on why your hair needs a great shampoo and conditioner – here's our step-by-step guide on how to use them to get the best results:
• Wet hair and squeeze a generous amount of Revive Moisture Shampoo into your hands.
• Lather thoroughly into your hair and scalp with your fingertips until thick foam forms. Rinse well.
• Squeeze a 10 pence size amount of Deep Moisture Conditioner into your hands.
• Work into your hair, paying attention to the shaft and the ends of the hair.
• For sensational results, leave for 1-2 minutes before rinsing out.

Extra hair care tips

Dry Gently

Although it may seem natural to jump out of the shower and rub your hair vigorously with a towel to dry it, your hair is very susceptible to damage when it's wet, and rough-drying can cause snapping, split ends frizziness. Instead, opt for patting your hair dry after shaking out excess water.

Don't Overload with Product

Don't get us wrong, we love a great hair clay as much as the next person. And, not to brag, but our Matte Texture Hair Clay and Peppermint & Tea Tree Texturising Hair Clay are pretty amazing.

But using too many products can lead to a heavy build of products that can affect the way your hair looks and feels and can often be pretty hard to get out.

After shampooing and conditioning, try to find one or two products that your hair really needs in order to get the best results.

Limit Wearing of Tight Hats

If you're anything like us, throwing on a hat or cap when you're having a bad hair day or really can't be bothered is the norm. Of course, this is fine from time to time, but tight hats can cause hair damage and loss because they pull and aggravate hair roots. If you do want to rock a had more often, try to opt for a loose-fitting one where possible.

Don't Over Wash

Not everyone needs to wash their hair every day. If you notice your hair feeling and looking drier, you might be stripping away its natural oils by over-washing it. Try skipping a day to see if this helps.
