How much concentrate should I use?
Our waterless concentrates are packed with only the pure, active ingredients that your hair and skin needs. A small amount goes a long way. However, it is important to get the right dose for your hair type. Think a 1/2 inch strip for short hair, a 1 inch strip for medium hair and a 1 1/2 inch strip for very long, thick hair. For body, we suggest a 1/2 inch to 1 inch strip. When paired with our Konjac Sponge, a little will go a long way. Adjust dose as needed for optimal lather. The WOW moment really comes once hair and skin is dry, so we suggest testing a few times to get your dose just right!
How do I get the most lather?
Our sulfate-free formulas build a remarkable rich, creamy lather, without stripping the natural sebum oil barrier. Don't let those big suds from sulfates fool you - gentle cleansers do the hard work to remove excess dirt and oil, but don't strip your microbiome leaving your skin hydrated and your hair happy. For the shampoo, make sure your hair is very wet and to spend the full 30 seconds in the shower standing out of direct water to build up the lather in your hair. You'll feel the lather swell as your hair acts like a loofah! If you're still left wanting more, one tip is to try micro-dosing (like double-cleansing, for your hair). Use a small amount of shampoo first to remove excess oil and go back a second time with a little less than your regular dose of shampoo. Especially good for those that want to extend time between washes. For body wash, we suggest using with a biodegradable sponge or loofah for maximum suds. You'll feel the difference!
What is the best way to prevent tangles?
Our conditioner concentrate is packed with plant-based ingredients that give a silicone-like slip for easy detangling. Unlike silicone, these ingredients don't build up on hair, leaving a healthy, lightweight feel. For best results, run a wide tooth comb through your hair before rinsing out your conditioner and rinse gently. Always start combing near your ends and work up to prevent breakage and leave hair feeling smooth. Treat hair gently when it's wet and most vulnerable to breakage. Don't rub wet hair excessively with a towel, press and squeeze instead. Once dry, you'll notice visible silkiness and shine. Healthy, happy hair feels noticeably soft.
How long should I expect the product to last?
This really depends on your hair type and how often you wash your hair and body. We generally suggest washing your hair every 3-4 days to keep your hair and scalp clean and nourished (no need to over wash your hair - those natural oils are a good thing). With generous-sized dosing for long hair, you would get 30+ washes, so a 100ml tube would last at least 12 weeks and for shorter hair, much longer! For body, you may want to wash more frequently every 1-2 days, at a generous 1 inch dose, you'll get 30+ washes, however with the konjac sponge, 1/2 inch is often all you'll need, so a 100ml tube would last 8-12 weeks!
