The mild sudsing of this shampoo comes from the combination of coco-protein and yucca root. Coco-protein is derived from the sugars, proteins and fatty acids of organic, virgin coconut oil. Yucca root is very high in saponins, the soap making ingredient, which causes the lather in our shampoo. This special root also has emollient properties, which have a soothing effect on the hair shaft. This shampoo will invite your hair to shine and your heart to sing in the shower.
Hair-loving herbs are intelligently infused in wholesome jojoba oil and swirled together with aromatic plant essences to create a functional work of art that gently lifts away the day’s dirt without stripping the hair’s oils or drying the scalp. Each batch of Seabuckthorn Shampoo is carefully crafted in small batches ensuring that your tresses receive the best, drenching your mane in a soothing, silky supplication.
Similar to healthy skin, healthy hair is coated in natural oils that protect each strand and keep the hair elastic, smooth, and shiny. The scalp produces these oils in exactly the right amount to keep the hair lubricated. Synthetic hair products, even those marketed for treated and colored hair, strip away these oils, irritate the scalp, and damage hair follicles. Some of the harsh chemicals in these products, such as sodium lauryl sulfate and oleyl betaine, can cause hair color to fade fast. Instead of the full, shiny, smooth locks promised on the bottle the result is often dull, faded, and lifeless hair.
Our shampoos are great for colored hair. Healthy looking hair sets the stage for dimensional color and shiny strands. The day or night before you plan on applying color, use our super hydrating, heavenly Honey Myrtle Deep Conditioning Mask, or sleep with Shine On or True Blue Spirulina Conditioners in your hair overnight. This will prime hair and pave the way for luminous color afterward. Plump strands of hair grab on to the dye and hold color longer without fading. A few days after coloring your hair you may want to skip all hair products to give the dye ample time to set.

Coco-Protein (Cocos nucifera) – Coco-protein along with yucca are the saponifiers that help our Seabuckthorn Shampoo have its purely natural, botanical suds.
