Dry scalp is one of the most common issues that people face, especially in the winter months. Confession: For most of the year, I suffer from dry scalp. Unfortunately, most anti-dandruff shampoos contain sulfates, and that will not work for those of us, myself included, who have keratin treatments. When I had to start looking for an anti-dandruff/dry scalp shampoo that is sulfate-free, I really had my work cut out for me. Pureology, which is also one of my favorite lines of hair care, discontinued their anti-dandruff sulfate free shampoo. I was so sad, and because my scalp is dry most of the year, I became even more motivated to find the perfect shampoo. I then started to notice that I had red skin under the dry patches, and that is consistent with seborrheic dermatitis. I refused antibiotics or steroid therapy. Then my life changed! I discovered Sage anti-dandruff shampoo from Maple Holistics. I love the fact that it is a natural approach to healing scalp ailments, and it also adds moisture to the hair. This shampoo has been a god send to me, and I truly can’t live without it.
How it works…Naturally
Maple Holistics Sage shampoo not only treats the underlying dandruff problem, but also targets precipitating factors that lead to dandruff. This shampoo consists of sage, spikenard, botanical keratin, jojoba oil, tea tree oil, rosemary, and peach kernel extract. All of these ingredients work together to lower the number of bacterial flora on the scalp, thus reducing the amount of skin shedding and inflammation. The shampoo is hypoallergenic, and promotes cell renewal of the scalp…and it smells amazing!
Sage is known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. This is great, because sage is the main ingredient in the shampoo. For this reason, it is effective against dermatitis and dandruff. Tea tree oil works as an exfoliant on the scalp, and promotes shedding of dead cells on the scalp. BONUS: *Spikenard in addition to tea tree oil promotes hair growth and healthy hair! The moisturizing ingredients in this shampoo is jojoba oil and argan oil, which hydrates the hair, ultimately leading to less flakes…which is the goal, right? Botanical keratin is great to eliminate frizz, and promotes smoothing of the hair structure.
This shampoo is 100% all natural, and delivers on all of its promises! What else can you ask for. It is safe to use on a daily basis, but in order to maximize results, alternate it with another shampoo. As with all holistic and natural products, it can be a bit pricy, but it is well worth the money spent if you can have beautiful, flake free hair…and still have your keratin treatment. So don’t ever say never to Maple Holistics Sage Shampoo!
