Gentle Cleansing Shampoo - FAQ

Is the Gentle Cleansing Shampoo sulphate-free?
Yes, it is a sulphate-free shampoo! We only use mild, plant-based surfactants, such as Decyl glucoside, Cocamidopropyl betaine and Disodium cocoamphodiacetate, that are gentle and kind to fragile curls, do not sting the eyes and make a fine-bubbled foam. Whilst being mild they gently cleanse any product build-up you might have, without irritating as sulphate surfactants would.

How often should I shampoo wavy curly hair?
How often you should use a cleansing shampoo for natural hair is not set in stone, it depends much on your hair type and lifestyle. Often wavy hair gets oilier faster than tight coily hair and needs more frequent washing to keep healthy scalp conditions. For loose waves and curls, we recommend washing 3-5 times a week and tight coily curl types to co-wash weekly, and deep cleanse with shampoo once or twice a month. Ringlet curls can on the other hand shampoo or co-wash every few days to a week. Depending on your hair type, wash less if you have dry hair and more for oily hair.

Can I use the Gentle Cleansing Shampoo for bleached/damaged curls?
