I have a sensitive scalp and coarse dry Indian hair type which are naturally wavy. I color my hair and occasionally use heating tools (with heat protection spray). Coloring and using heat tools can damage hair.
Hard water, Using very hot water to wash hair, Harsh hair products, Weather conditions and direct Sun can also add to the problem. Though we now have a water softener so hard water is not a problem for me anymore but other factors can be a bit of a problem.
Our hair cannot be healthy without a healthy scalp. Drunk Elephant’s NEW haircare range is based on the #scalpfirst approach. The formulation of this range directly benefits the health of the scalp.
T.L.C. happi Scalp Scrub: The supercharged AHA/BHA acid blend is designed to breakdown and dissolve dead skin cells as well as product buildup. The Happi Scalp™ Scrub uses a blend of six antioxidant plant oils, which include marula, mongongo, baobab, and maracuja, combined with a quick-absorbing multi-amino acid blend to help protect the scalp and rejuvenate the skin. Love that the scrub is not too harsh and has a pH level of 3.7. It uses biodegradable exfoliating cellulose beads and helps to keep the scalp flake-free and healthy.
Cocomino Glossing Shampoo: The nourishing and shine-boosting amino acids blend will keep hair & scalp happy and healthy. The gentle, sulphate-free coconut-based surfactants deliver a creamy foam that lifts dirt, product buildup without damaging the hair shaft or stripping color. The beneficial ingredients work to prevent water loss and rehydrate locks while also protecting from heat and leaving hair more manageable.
Cocomino Marula Cream Conditioner: This conditioner is great for fighting frizz and static while also adding some shine to the hair. The non-fragrant plant oils and butters leave the hair soft but never greasy or weighed down.
Wild Marula Tangle Spray: This weightless mist unravels the most stubborn knots. It leaves hair feeling healthier and never sticky, greasy or heavy. This spray also adds body and bounce to the hair. This can be sprayed on damp or towel-dried hair or you may use it as heat protection spray – Love multi-taskers!
The brand has also launched body Collection which is great for dull and dry skin.
Kamili Cream Body Cleanser: This body cleanser cleanses and balances the skin – a skincare formula that works to replenish, nourish and detoxify the complexion. This cleanser also helps calm sensitive skin as it rinses away dirt and other substances without damaging or disrupting the skin barrier. This cleanser has a pH level of 5.0.
Sili Body Lotion: This is a skincare treatment that works to revitalise dull and dry complexions with a blend of nourishing plant oils and butters. This body lotion promotes healthier and more balanced skin. By locking in hydration and restoring lost moisture, this body lotion offers a powerful defence against environmental stressors.
Sweet Pitti Deodorant Cream: Last year I switched to gentle deodorant formulas that are formulated for sensitive skin. The body collection from DE also has a deodorant made from mandelic acid and absorbent arrowroot (free from baking soda, essential oils and aluminum derived ingredients) making it safe for even sensitive skin. This deodorant has a pH level of 4.0 and tackles bacteria and body odour.
The new releases from cult-favorite brand Drunk Elephant definitely have all eyes on them and for good reasons. The gentle formulas are efficient enough to make a difference in the health of the scalp and the body without disturbing the pH level. I love how my body and scalp feel after using these products. These are available at SpaceNK.
Until next time, Ashh xo
