Beyond hair beauty

Consciously crafted with our organic plants, some of which grow on our family farm following permaculture principles, our four shampoos are formulated with ingredients known to be easily biodegradable. Free of sulfate and parabens, they nourish the hair while gently cleansing it.

With their adapted pH, they help preserve the natural balance of the scalp, which guarantees the health and beauty of the hair.

 

Aroma First!

For an entrancing experience with every use

All made with the same base of ingredients, including plants attentively selected for their toning, nourishing and PH balancing properties, our shampoos are suitable for all hair types. It's the pure essential oils that set each of them apart by giving each shampoo it's own entrancing aroma without the use of synthetic fragrances, along with some specific properties.

We believe aroma is conducive to well-being. While you are vulnerable and relaxed in your shower, it is your sense of smell that will make you travel and have a pleasant experience. We recommend you first choose your shampoo based on the sensory escape you want to experience.

Angelica & Lavender

The soothing aroma of lavender transforms a simple scalp massage into a grounding and restful experience. For a moment, you'll be carried away to the heart of Provence and its purple fields.

Cedar & Sage

Invigorating and captivating, this shampoo awakens the senses like a walk in the woods. A deep breath and you will be transported to the forest by its rich and earthy aromas.

Goldenseal & Citrus

Like a ray of sunshine, the regenerating synergy of tangerine, grapefruit, and ylang-ylang essential oils in this shampoo will bring you energy and vitality.

Unscented

Offering no aromatic experience, this fragrance-free shampoo leaves room for imagination. With every use, your mind will make you experience the escape it truly dreams of.

 

Addressing a Hair Type and Hair Concern

Focusing on essential oil's properties 

Since essential oils provide each product with its own benefits, it is also possible to select your shampoo according to your hair type and the hair concern you want to address.

Here are more details on the properties of each of our shampoos:

Using a natural shampoo is a little different from using a conventional shampoo. Indeed, conventional shampoos contain aggressive and drying surfactants, as well as silicone which leaves a film on the hair. They also produce abundant lather, unlike natural shampoos like ours. But as any good hairdresser will tell you, it's not the foam that cleans! 

In this video, we share with you our top tips to optimize the use of our natural shampoos. We also discuss the necessary transition period, of a few weeks, when going from a conventional shampoo to a natural shampoo.
