SHAMPOOS, what a subject. So many to choose from and there are so so many choices out there. Why Restore Shampoo? Well to start Restore Shampoo took us 7 years to develop! It had to work for my own thick, coarse, wavy, and colored hair , for my dogs and my horses too!
Restore Shampoo has a PH 7.11 (+/-10%). What does that mean…well its not an Alkali-based shampoo nor acid, slightly above nuetral . Many of the shampoos used for horses are Alkali; whitening, purple, silver etc., these make the cuticle of the hair open and expose the outer surface of hair which is called cortex. When the cortex is exposed, hair strands are more prone to damage and breakage, and become rough, dull, stained and tangled.
Yes SHAMPOOS are IMPORTANT AND PLAY A ROLL IN THE QUALITY OF HAIR. When using the Mane-ly system the products work together to give the best results including Restore Shampoo. Ph of 7 is neutral, Restore is slightly above with a mild clarifying action. We wanted it to clarify and clean to help remove oils, dirt, build-up, leaving the hair clean with shine without damaging the cuticle.
I would recommend Restore Shampoo in your program, it’s not a daily shampoo, recommended usage 1 x a week. Replace the alkaline products you may be using now with Restore. Remember the hair that you work so hard to moisturize with our Conditioner and protect with our Polisher will be a waste if you are using the other Alkali shampoos. Alkali shampoos will remove all the hard work of repairing the Cuticle. Alkali-based shampoos make these cuticles open and expose the outer surface of hair which is called cortex. When the cortex is exposed, hair strands are more prone to damage and breakage and become rough, dull, and tangled too!
Acidic shampoos are mild and keep cuticle scales closed but they can leave the hair limp flat, dull, without shine. Acidic shampoos will not remove skin or hair oils or product that builds up with usage.(fly sprays, dirt, oils etc).
So remember that Mane-ly Long Hair Conditioner and Polisher work to hydrate and keep the cuticle closed, keeping stains out and white white (as you maintain with shock or Hydrate 24) and hair tangle free , silkier and shine too! Restore Shampoo respects the cuticle and keeps the hair cleaner and ready to maintain with Polisher, Shock, and Hydrate 24 .
