Allow me to change your life, especially if your scalp ever feels tight, dry or itchy. The NatureLab Scalp Balancing Sake Rinse can be used pre shampoo or it can be used instead of shampoo. You decide based on how much cleansing you feel like you need. It’s great for fine, thick, curly or straight hair.
Here’s the thing, even if you adore your shampoo and conditioner, you have to change things up from time to time. It’s like going to the gym. Your body gets used to the same old routine, and eventually said routine no longer has the great effects it did when you started. Your scalp is a delicate microbiome all in itself and needs to be taken care of just like your face. A healthy scalp is necessary for gorgeous locks. You’ve got to remove product buildup and dead skin cells from your scalp just like you do your face and body.
It’s formulated with sake water, which is a natural source of probiotics that restores and balances the scalp by removing build up and impurities plus rice water, which is a natural moisturizer that leaves both your scalp and hair hydrated.
Here’s how to use it. Use the bottle tip to create parts in your hair, gently squeeze the bottle and apply to damp, sweaty or dry hair. Massage the product into your scalp. Leave in for 1-2 minutes, rinse and enjoy the cooling sensation that comes with giving your scalp what it needs. Follow with your favorite shampoo or skip shampoo and go straight to conditioner.
Bonus, it’s a totally clean and vegan formula made without talc, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, over 1,300 ingredients that are banned in the EU, animal testing, silicone, and animal-derived ingredients. If you’re into that sort of thing.
