Low Lather Shampoos VS Mainstream High-Lather Shampoo
The industry has been telling us for over 50 years that lather in shampoo is essential.
Their hidden message is "if it doesn't lather, it doesn't clean"..
What they omit to tell you is that they use foaming agents to make the product lather.
Foaming agents are synthetic chemicals which produce lather have no actual effects on how well your skin is cleaned. But it sure makes you believe it is. The cleaning products are the surfactants, not the foaming agents. Do they need to keep on treating us like little babies who need their bubbles to take a bath?
Oblige's low lather shampoos are for the educated adult, they are free from these chemical ingredients. Being 70 % organic and rich in natural elements they are so safe and gentle that they should be used on babies and the elderly. And, by the way, they do clean better with their lower lather. In addition, they don't pollute our environment.
How to wash your hair with low lather shampoos:
Washing your hair with natural organic shampoo requires some adaptation. They are definitely different from chemical shampoos. The ingredients are more nourishing for the hair and are not as abrasive as the traditional ingredients found in chemical grade shampoos.
Obligé by Nature Shampoos are over 70% Organic!! They provide all the moisture and essential elements your hair needs to stay healthy! And most important, they do not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic chemicals or synthetic fragrances!
Make sure you completely soak your hair with water beforehand. Avoid using extremely hot water. Hot water may cause dry damages which may then result in Hair loss.
Do not use too much shampoo, apply a small amount, roughly around the size of a quarter in the palm of your hand and gently massage your scalp with your fingertips. It will require a little more time than traditional lathering shampoo but it will gently cleanse your hair while giving it moisture and nutrients.
Obligé by Nature Shampoo is a low lather shampoo but for those who prefer more lather, we advise to apply a second amount after fast rinsing the first application, this will lather much more consistently.
Make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly until there is no more shampoo or bubbles in your hair. Not doing so may result in your hair feeling greasy.
You may then want to condition your hair. If so, apply your conditioner just as you did with any shampoo. If your hair is naturally oily, apply some more shampoo after the conditioner to remove some of the oils left behind. If your hair is naturally dry, keep the conditioner on longer and rinse a little less to keep the moisture on your hair.
Once you have finished rinsing your conditioner, you should make sure you squeeze any additional water out of your hair and wrap up a towel over your head to absorb the remaining water. Avoid rubbing vigorously as it may damage your hair.
