Divide scalp into four areas - top, sides, and back. Apply a small amount to each area. Massage in thoroughly. Add more water during massage to help distribute suds if needed. Leave in 1-3 minutes, allowing micronutrients to stimulate follicle circulation. Rinse and repeat if neccessary.
- Adding water while massaging shampoo through the hair helps disperse the product for an effective cleanse.
- If your house water is hard, containing high calcium and magnesium mineral content, it can affect the performance your natural shampoo and conditioner. Heavy minerals build up and affect natural conditioners ability to soften and penetrate. The minerals in hard water decrease lathering capabilities, this is why:
Hard water contains an adversary to natural soaps - calcium. Calcium has a strong positive charge. Soap molecules are negatively charged and when they come in contact with positively-charged calcium the two bond together, with no charge at all. This greatly reduces the ability of the soap to remove dirt and oil.
NATURAL, GENTLE CLEANSING INGREDIENTS
When you have delicate natural cleansers like our African black soap and saponified coconut oil, and they are a part of the balanced, whole plant formula that includes real plant oils and extracts, hard water must be softened for the products to perform best.
There are many affordable shower filtration systems available today and your scalp, hair and skin will benefit immensely from having one. Chlorinated water is not good for the hair or skin and can inhibit natural cleansing agents performance as well. The chemicals in chlorine and the heavy minerals in hard water can cause skin and scalp to become itchy and irritated. Hard water can also trigger eczema conditions.
WHY DO SYNTHETIC CHEMICAL SHAMPOOS LATHER IN HARD WATER?
Conventional, synthetic chemical shampoos continue to lather in hard water due to highly questionable hair and scalp stripping chemical detergents and foaming additives. These super harsh, cheap, industrial surfactants shouldn’t be used on the body and the synthetic lather and chemical foam boosting additives like cocamide monoethanolamine further deplete the bodies natural protection by stripping the acid mantle oil barrier and over clean.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Balance Shampoo is its awakening, bright citrus scent. Lemon, rosemary and grapefruit oils are augmented by the faintest bit of rose to create a fragrance that feels more luxurious than your average shampoo and puts a positive spin on any morning. The shampoo has a nice gentle lather, nothing over the top but enough to make you feel like “hey, it’s working!” Non-lathering shampoos are fantastic for certain hair types—those on the dry side, or thick and coarse hair—but when a shampoo doesn’t lather with hair like mine, the result is normally limp hair that doesn’t look very clean. The Balance Shampoo does a nice job of cleansing while still replenishing nutrients and infusing hair with life. After all, the bulk of the ingredients are herbal infusions.
With Josh Rosebrook’s Balance Shampoo, my hair feels clean but ridiculously soft and conditioned, so much so that I’m tempted to skip the conditioner—but don’t, because the Balance Conditioner is one of the best natural conditioners I’ve ever used. The Josh Rosebrook Balance Conditioner formula feels and behaves like the conventional conditioners of my past minus the silicones and other junk. I most often skip conditioner in my routine because, frankly, most natural conditioners don’t seem to do anything for me. While they might add some moisture, tangles are usually still a problem. The Balance Conditioner is on a different level. The consistency is rich and creamy, and obviously so much more than a blob of botanical butters. Any tangles are instantly dissolved. It leaves hair feeling silky soft, and a comb goes right through without a snag, minimizing any damage that can occur from brushing wet hair. I’m left with manageable, healthy looking hair. This is my holy grail conditioner, and I can’t wait for you to try it.
