Sulfate Free Anti-Hair Loss Organic Shampoo with Soapnuts and Biotin – 15 oz. (430g) $23.00 USD
One Step Face Wash – 4 oz. (120 g) $24.00 USD
The Anti-Hair Loss Organic Shampoo is made with soapnuts and all natural ingredients that have not been chemically processed or bleached, which gives this shampoo a “natural tint and earthy fragrance.” The claims of this Ayurvedic formula include that this shampoo prevents hair loss and dandruff and it is a natural DHT blocker. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that has been said to contribute to hair loss.
This shampoo is also sulfate Free, silicone free, and color safe. Soap nut extract, aloe vera, olive and pumpkin seed oil, vitamin B3 and B6, and Wild Peppermint oil create a moisturizing and nourishing shampoo that does not dry out or damage the hair.
It is a low-lathering since it does not contain sulfates, and the thin consistency provides gentle cleansing. I enjoy using this shampoo because the peppermint oil creates a cool and refreshing treat for my scalp. Both my hair and scalp felt clean and rejuvenated after using this. I do not suffer from hair loss, so as far as preventing hair loss goes, I cannot speak about it. However, you know when you’re getting ready to get out of the shower and you look down to see a bunch of hair stuck in the drain (please tell me it’s not only me!)? I did notice that I did have less breakage and less hair left in the shower… perhaps because this shampoo is low-lathering and didn’t rough up my hair? Interesting…
The One Step Fash Wash is a multifunctional product that cleanses, removes makeup, exfoliates, and tones. It has a slightly earthy yet sweet and fruity scent, and the consistency is very thick, so once you start working it into your skin, it does not drip off. The instructions indicate that you are supposed to massage the cleanser into your wet skin for 1 minute. Although it is recommended on the bottle to use a moisturizer afterward, my skin did not feel overly dry.
Aloe vera juice, castor oil, witch hazel, pineapple, lime, and chamomile account for this cleansers ability to remove all traces of makeup and oil while leaving your face feeling soft, soothed, healthy, and thoroughly cleaned. This one is a winner in my book!
