Let’s talk Shampoo
Have you noticed when you wash your hair you have that squeaky, almost too clean, tangled mess in between the shampoo and conditioner? It seriously squeaks in between your fingers!
Shampoo is the worst! Simply the worst thing you can ever put on your hair. The soap and detergent based shampoos so many of us are used to, not only ‘over clean’ your hair and scalp, they also strip away our much needed and natural protective oil barrier.
The Sulfate ingredients in regular shampoos actually cause your hair to swell, it becomes dry, weak and brittle (that’s the squeaky feeling). Your conditioner is simply a bandaid, a sad attempt to replace all that needed goodness stripped from your hair and scalp. In between your regular washing, your scalp spends all that time trying to produce enough oil to make up for the natural protection you’ve harshly washed away, that’s the vicious cycle of regular shampoos and conditioners and that’s what we’ve been working on breaking, for months and months!
What’s not in Ecoistic Sanctify is even more important than what is.
Sanctify is free of: cruelty, detergent, soap, parabens, alcohols, silicons, palm, gmo, synthetic perfumes or the very worst of the worst which is in almost every shampoo on the market Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.
A Low Down of some of the harmful culprits in your standard Shampoos
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Synthetic Fragrances, Cocamidopropyl Betaine,Triclosan, Polysorbates, Polyethylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Dimethicone, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Phenoxyethanol, along with parabens, palm, gmo, soaps, alcohols and detergents.
How does Sanctify work?
Entirely differently! - it will wash out the dirt and excess oils in the rinse but the nourishment will remain – the cleansing is the conditioning. It eases and calms your scalp (fabulous for those with dandruff, psoriasis, sensitivities and those that suffer from auto immune illnesses). Sanctify promotes healthy and nourished hair and won’t strip colour.
In fact it won’t break your hair to begin with, so that second step (Conditioning) is not ever needed.
Over cleaned hair is difficult to manage – the sheer amount of styling products, powders, sprays, balms, shines, gels, cremes, waxes etc that are selling daily are testament to that. Sanctify does not strip and over clean your hair – so you’ll have less fly aways, your curls will sing, any scalp issues will calm and clear, and with a nourished healthy scalp, and cleansed hair your crowning glory will have more substance to it, allowing styling to be fuss free.
Sanctify cleanses your hair and scalp, it’s a one step cleansing system that cleans, detangles, conditions, nourishes, and repairs. Not only does it replace your bottles upon bottles of shampoo and conditioners (possibly a different type for each family member) It can also be used as a detangler for those with frizzy, curly or afro hair types, it can be left on for an hour as a replacement for that toxic hair masque you have in the cupboard and Sanctify had been tried and tested very successfully on all Hair Types, including loc's.
Ecoistic Sanctify cleans without the soaps, detergents and all those nasty toxic chemicals that are in standard shampoos. Sanctify is not even a shampoo, it’s a hair and scalp cleanser. It doesn’t strip away all the nourishment and protective barrier on your scalp and hair, it will only remove dirt, any excess oil, and build up of products.
Sanctify cleanses your hair and scalp with nothing but organic, botanical, natural cleansers, nourishing oils and essential oils.
Unlike co washing, or the non washing movement Sanctify will cleanse your hair, clean it safely and beautifully, and whilst you won’t need to go through those months of your oil production balancing out, it will take some time for your scalps oil regulation to balance successfully.
Don’t be expecting that instant gratification we are all used to in this world these days, (though for many…me included that’s exactly what happened, instantly gratification) give it time, use it for a full 4 weeks before assuming it won’t work for you or your hair type. Combine the adjustment time of your scalp balancing your oil production learning curve along with the new method of washing your hair ... it deserves the time spent.
Bear with me, the end game is well worth the effort.
Just think how many hair products you’ve bought over the years, have a look in your bathroom cabinet – let me guess.. there is at least 5 products in there you’ve tried and given up on, they didn’t work or at least not on your ‘type’ of hair. We've not currently found any Hair Type Sanctify didn't work beautifully on. If you feel there is excess oil remaining after the cleansing, you will get it right the second time, just follow the method directions thoroughly.
The Planet & her people
As with all of our formulations we do our utmost to keep the planet & her people healthy. Sanctify is packaged in a refillable 250ml PET recyclable pump bottle (no glass, for your safety in your shower), but I want you to keep it and refill it – a discounted and economical refill option means you only need to refill your bottle with one of our pouches. (though the current pouch outer is recyclable the inner is not, so we are thankful to the Better Packaging Coy to be working with us on a fully compostable pouch which we’ll be testing in the very near future and placing into production as soon as possible).
With Sanctify those currently washing their hair daily, will no longer need to, you’ll be able to go to day 5 before feeling the need to cleanse again, and the formulation is completely biodegradable so you’re not adding to the waterways pollution problem, to have your beautiful hair and healthy scalp. With the bottles not going to landfill, the lack of nasty toxic chemicals going into our water ways and the water conservation ... all combined, we are making headway.
