A nourishing shampoo, for dry or damaged hair. This blend effectively removes dirt from the hair and scalp, while Horsetail, a key botanical ingredient, replenishes the hair with silica, promoting full, lustrous, and strong hair.
Wild-foraged Stinging Nettle is a wonderful ingredient for hair care, and has been used for centuries to stimulate hair growth. Nettle has a reputation for counteracting hair loss, and can be helpful as prevention and remedy to dandruff. As well as all of that goodness for the scalp, nettle can also improve the feel and quality of dry and lifeless hair, making it softer and shiner.
Spring Birch leaves, collected from our own trees, can help to strengthen skin tissue, tone the scalp, prevent hair loss, and leave hair soft and shiny. As well as all of that, the saponins in birch help to open up the pores of the scalp, which means that the nutrients and minerals from the nettle can penetrate deeper.
Wild-growing Horsetail herb helps promote the formation of collagen, which improves skin, hair, and nails. In other words, horsetail can help keep hair full, lustrous, and strong, and skin supple. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study (basically, the gold standard of studies), women with thinning hair used a horsetail product for 180 days and saw positive results. Their hair volume, scalp coverage, and hair thickness improved, as well as hair shine.
Ensuring your hair is wet and warm, pour some shampoo into your palm and gently massage the shampoo into your scalp. When you've covered all of your scalp, gently "squeeze" the shampoo down the lengths of your hair. Avoid applying shampoo directly to the ends of your hair as this can cause dryness. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Slow Beauty tip… give your hair a final rinse with cool water for extra shine.
