ROXDOLL Cosmetics is a cruelty-free hair, scalp and skin care line, that uses plant-based ingredients while cutting out the junk in products. Our shampoos are made without sulfates, phthalates, dyes, and parabens. Our shampoos are highly concentrated so you don't need to use a ton of product to achieve desired results. However, since our shampoos are formulated without sulfates, you might feel inclined to use a little more shampoo than you normally would, in an effort to get a greater lather. So here are some tips to get the most out of your favorite ROXDOLL shampoo, without having to use a ton of product.
The trick to getting sulfate free shampoo to lather is more water and less product. Here is what we suggest! On wash day, saturate your hair, then take a quarter-size amount of shampoo, focusing on your SCALP, do a quick shampoo. Rinse well and follow it up with another quarter-size amount of shampoo, again, concentrate the shampoo on your scalp, not the ends of your hair. Focus the shampoo at the source of oil secretion and where product builds up, the SCALP! By doing this you will use less product while getting a more thorough shampoo. You'll notice a huge difference between the first shampoo and the second.
Thick Hair Tip:
When it comes to rinsing thick hair, separate the hair into sections. Rinse each section thoroughly, making sure all the product is out. This will help avoid that pesky wet product build-up.
A little more about the ingredients we left out of our ROXDOLL shampoos:
We did the research so you don't have to.
Sulfates: are chemicals used as cleansing agents. They're found in household cleaners, detergents, and even shampoo. Two main types of sulfates are used in shampoo: sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate. The purpose of these sulfates is to create a lathering effect to remove oil and dirt from your hair. -Healthline
Phthalates: are also used as solvents and perfume (fragrance) fixatives in many hair and cosmetic products. Research has shown phthalates to interfere with reproductive function and hormonal systems (including male infertility and reduced sex hormones), as well as cause birth defects. -Naturally Curly
Dyes: Most shampoos and conditioners are dyed with a synthetic color to make them look nice. These dyes might come from petroleum or coal-tar sources which can have harmful health effects. Synthetic colors will normally go by FD&C or D&C combined with a number. -Modern Salon
Parabens: can cause a number of problems for your hair including drying, irritating your scalp, fading your color, and even hair loss. -Voice of Hair
