New Aloe & Honey Conditioning Shampoo–Out Now!


My new Aloe & Honey Conditioning Shampoo is available to purchase now. This sulphate- free shampoo lathers into a dense, rich foam in both hard and soft water but will not strip your hair or leave it feeling crunchy. As the name suggests, this shampoo conditions whilst it cleans to leave your hair feeling soft, smooth and moisturised.

Believe me when i say you only need a TINY bit of this shampoo. Literally one pump per section. You’ll be surprised as to how much this lathers and how well it cleanses. You’ll be even more surprised as to how your hair feels once you rinse it off!

Free from – SLS and other sulphates, Added Salt, Mineral Oil, Petroleum, Silicones, Artificial Fragrances & Parabens

Look out for my new Crambe Moisturising Conditioner which will be available soon.

I absolutely love this shampoo. If any of you have read my earlier posts on this blog you will know that i have a love-hate relationship with shampoo. I’ve never been a 100% satisfied with the results i get from shampooing. My hair gets clean, yes, but the way my hair usually feels afterwards isn’t great. So i normally employ other methods to help minimise the drying effects of the shampoo such as the ‘conditioner over shampoo’ method or Oil Rinsing after shampooing to help re-soften my strands. BUT….. With this shampoo i don’t have a need for those methods. My hair feels so soft and not at all yucky, crunchy or squeaky. I barely co-wash now, only when i’m pressed for time.

Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients

Deionised water – Purified Water

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate – Contains purified fatty acids derived from natural coconut oil. Completely bio-degradable and mild to skin and eyes. Excellent foaming properties in hard and soft water. Provides gentle cleansing and imparts a soft after-feel to skin and hair.

Aloe Vera Juice – Contains amino acids, minerals, enzymes, vitamins and many other nutrients. The enzymes help activate fresh growth and stimulates the growth of existing hair by stabilizing the follicular cycle. Helps to restore the hair and scalps pH balance.  Is a cellular regenerator with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, helps to treat and heal red, itchy and unhealthy scalps. Also smoothes the hairs cuticles and imparts shine to the hair.

Cocamidopropyl Betaine – Produced from Coconut Oil. Often used in combination with other Detergents to make them milder, and also produces a good foam. Especially recommended for Dry Hair Shampoos. Cocamidopropyl Betaine has been shown to be effective at removing heavy build-up including silicones.

Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate – Derived from coconut oil. An extremely mild, high-foaming surfactant. Will not strip skin or hair of natural oils, imparts a soft, conditioned after-feel to skin and hair.

Glycerine – A humectant extracted from coconut. Moisturises by drawing water from the air (or in product) into the skin and hair. Provides a smooth, silky feeling and adds gloss. Boosts foaming in shampoos. Great for dry hair.

Coco-Glucoside (and) Glyceryl Oleate – 100% plant-derived (Coco Glucoside from Coconut and the fatty acid Glyceryl Oleate from Sunflower Oil) and is gentle enough for use in baby care products. A mild, water-soluble emollient and lipid layer enhancer which replenishes the skins’ moisture barrier function. It helps the hair retain its natural oils and moisture and assists with detangling.

Honeyquat – Naturally derived quaternized conditioning agent made from honey, exhibiting excellent moisture binding capabilities. Due to its low molecular weight, can easily penetrate the hair shaft to provide moisture to dry, dull hair. Also helps restore shine and lustre. Helps reduce static build-up and improves wet combing.

Olive Oil PEG-10 Esters – Water Soluble Olive Oil. Adds emollience to water based products and helps solubilise essential oils.

Panthenol – Pro-vitamin B5. Penetrates deep into the skin and hair shaft and has excellent water-binding abilities. It creates a protective film aiding moisture retention. Helps strengthen the hair by imparting an elastic film inside and out, which also helps thicken the hair and leaves it feeling soft, silky and easy to handle.

MicroKill – Broad spectrum Parabens-free and Formaldehyde-free preservation system. Active against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria, yeasts and moulds.

Hydrolysed Wheat Protein – Provides excellent film forming properties and can absorb up to twice its weight of water. Its ideal for retaining water levels and moisturising the skin and hair.
