Blended in a pH neutral, unscented formula to calm and soothe sensitive scalp. The result is naturally beautiful hair without the irritation.

If using a natural shampoo for the first time your hair will most likely need to go through an adjustment period. This could take up to a month for the build up of ‘nasties’ to be removed and your hair and scalp to start seeing the benefits and natural change for the better. Natural Shampoos tend not to lather so much as conventional products due to the natural cleansers that are used vs. sulphates which created the foaming effect.

~ The Sulfate free claim, is a term used commonly by the natural beauty industry, specifically referring to the two harsh cleansers found in traditional shampoos, known as SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate). These strong cleansers can strip oils causing irritation to the skin and scalp. No A'kin products contain SLS or SLES and therefore are referred to as sulfate free.
Not all sulfates are bad. Behenyltrimonium Methosulfate (also called BTMS) is one of the good sulfates. It is an oily wax and an extremely mild conditioning ingredient, to moisturise your hair and scalp vs. stripping natural oils away. It is also more degradable than many other conditioning ingredients.
