Chelating Detox Shampoo
Full Size: 8.5oz / 250 ml - Sample Size: 2.7oz / 80 ml
For all hair types in any climate with hard water.
To chelate your hair is to remove product buildup AND mineral buildup. It is different than clarifying your hair in that clarifiers don't remove as much mineral buildup as chelators do. Chelating shampoos are needed when you live somewhere with hard water. Clarifiers are typically enough for those who live somewhere with regular-to soft water.
Chelating “grabs” metal ions that have deposited and built up on the hair from hard water, then releases them from the strands.
The Chelating Detox Shampoo is CCC's deepest, deep-cleanse. It will break down and remove the unwanted minerals that hard water deposits and leaves on your hair and scalp.
Buildup on the hair and scalp can lead to stunted growth, dry and brittle hair, and scalp issues. If you live somewhere with hard water try incorporating this shampoo once a month or every other month.
We used a naturally-derived, biodegradable chelating alternative to EDTA (Ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid). EDTA is what most companies use to chelate the hair, but it is produced from unsustainable fossil-fuel sources and isn’t good for the environment. It is also made from sodium cyanide and formaldehyde and that weirds us out.
If you live somewhere with hard water, you may prefer to use this for your routine clarifying wash.
Activated Charcoal helps cleanse impurities, removes the sebum and deep cleanses the pores to let your hair breathe. It unclogs the pores in your scalp thus detoxifying the follicles. This helps the hair grow better.
Amla Extract gently cleanses, strengthens, and conditions the hair all the way down to the roots. It promotes hair growth, reduces dandruff, prevents the graying of hair, and moisturizes dry skin.
Ginger Extract has antiseptic properties that can help in getting rid of dandruff. Its stimulating qualities encourage blood flow to the follicles, keeping them healthy and nourished.
The consistency is a slightly thick, viscous, slippery, and gel-like shampoo with great lather. It can be pumped or poured out. There is activated charcoal in the shampoo which adds a light texture to it. It is black due to the activated charcoal.
