Shampoos and Conditioners

When it comes to our hair the most important thing that our hair needs is products that clean and condition without damaging our scalp or bodies in the process. That is it. That is all.

A very important factor to understand when it comes to cleansing our hair and scalp is to make sure that the products we are using are pH balanced.

A balanced pH allows the hair at the cuticle to lie flat and protect the cortex. This makes for shiny and smooth hair. Another consideration is to make sure that your shampoo doesn't contain silicone-based additives (ingredients ending with -cone, -conol, or -xane) because they conceal damage rather than repair it, weigh hair down, attract dirt and require stronger detergents to remove.

These silicone additives such as dimethicone, cyclotetrasiloxane, methylchloroisothiazolinone and others are added to shampoos to give the hair a silky feeling by coating it. However, this prevents the hair and scalp from becoming truly clean and can also lead to clogged hair follicles which create can lead to breakage, dandruff and breakouts along the forehead and hairline.

We have formulated our shampoos to be at a pH of 4.5-5.5. When the pH is too high (8, 9+) it causes the cuticle to open which can cause clogging (leading to dandruff, itchy scalp) and also leaves hair color susceptible to fading. This is the case when using castile soap which has a pH of 9.0+, even if its organic because what matters here is the pH of the product.

Castille soap can also be listed as: Saponified oils of coconut, olive and jojoba, aloe vera and rosemary oil extract. Such a high pH causes the cuticles to swell and the hair can become rough, leaving the hair dull and dry.

You will find that our hair care range addresses a wide variety of hair types and conditions. From the overly processed, damaged and dry to the thick, curly, long and short, braided, loc'd, weaved or natural.

Lotus Moon hair care uses ingredients found in nature such as shea, cocoa and mango butters; jojoba, amla and brahmi oils; geranium, lavender and orange essential oils, we've developed solutions to bring your tresses back to LIFE!!
