Why should I use a natural shampoo?
Shampoo is an essential part of any beauty routine and our hair needs to be cleaned, on average, between one and three times a week. The frequency varies according to our hair type (depending on the sebum production at the roots), but also our environment and our lifestyle: dust and pollution are factors that can dull, weaken and even weigh down the hair.

If you have dandruff, chances are your scalp needs to be gently rebalanced. Sometimes dandruff is caused by using conventional shampoos with irritating detergents, such as synthetic sulphates, too often. Here again, there is nothing like a natural shampoo to treat dandruff! Our favourite? The Zinc and Sage Shampoo John Master Organics which is a 2-in-1 zinc shampoo: it rebalances the scalp and fights against dandruff... while moisturising the lengths!
