Hair Cleansers - Ylang Ylang & Lime
Sulphate-free shampoo for normal or dry hair.
Our hair cleansers use a mild, natural, sugar-derived detergent that will clean your hair without stripping it of protective oils. The Normal Cleanser is made for people with generally healthy hair, tending if anything towards oily, to leave your hair soft and manageable. The Dry Cleanser is aimed at those of us with dryer or colour-treated hair; it uses a thickener called guar gum, which is also a great hair conditioner, and includes aloe vera. If your hair is dryish but quite fine you may find it works well without another conditioning product.
We don't encourage you to wash your hair twice (that's just a con to get you to use twice as much shampoo, by the way. Do you wash your hands twice? No, so why put your hair through that?) so this bottle lasts a long time. Remember this product is fresh; it needs to be shaken every time you use it.
Scented with ylang ylang & lime essential oils.

Product Testimonials Hair Cleansers - Ylang Ylang & Lime
I have long thick colour treated hair and bought the dry hair cleanser & conditioner which are just fabulous.
Shake before use and pour straight onto head rather than hand as it is much more liquid than conventional shampoos & you’ll just lose it through your fingers otherwise!
It does lather up surprisingly well and leaves a lovely scent. Hair once dry is left soft and shiny & smelling gorgeous..
I will definitely be ordering this & the conditioner in the bucket size.
found this amazing shampoo whilst staying in a guest house in penzance. been using it ever since wouldn't use anything else.
Amazingly good for my brillo-pad curly hair texture; keeps it soft and neat. A great find.
We use it for our daughter. No harsh chemicals and amazing smell!
This is a really nice hair cleanser - pleasant light scent and very gentle on the hair. I originally tried the cleanser for dry hair but found it too moisturising so switched to this normal one and it's great. It doesn't strip your hair of it's natural oils - hence my reappraisal of my so-called dry hair, it isn't dry at all it was just over-stripped by conventional shampoos. I like the low lather - much easier to rinse out it leaves my hair clean, fresh, and soft. If you are thinking of trying the 'no-poo' hair cleansing but are not sure, then you should try these cleansers first, gentle effective and convenient.
After spending a fortune on numerous so-called natural brands to find a shampoo that doesn't aggravate my allergic dermatitis I finally tried your Dry Hair Cleanser. For the first time in decades I no longer have a sore scalp and MUCH shinier happier hair. Thank you magic soap fairies! X
