Don’t you love it when a company tests what we know about something, and challenges us to try something different? It’s happened loads of times before, with dry shampoo, oil cleansing, even using sunscreen in the winter. This time, the company Hair is Fabric presents you with new options of cleaning your hair.
Check out the cool, unique packaging. Even it screams, try me, I’m new and I’m different! I actually love this packaging – the tubes dispense a thick gel kind of cleanser that’s concentrated and needs lots of water to turn it into a creamy cleanser for your hair.
Their products are sulfate-free shampoos, called cleansing conditioners but not exactly in a cream form. They’re foaming conditioners that do clean the hair just as adequately as your regular shampoo, provided you mix them with lots of water so that you can distribute them thoroughly and easily into your hair.
I tried the Curly Hair Support and the Hydration Support and they were both gentle on my hair, and cleansed it well without drying it out. I did find that I need conditioner after using them – so they weren’t so conditioning that there was a residue left in my hair.
Here’s the ingredient list for the Hydration Support:
Aqua (Water), Parfum (Fragrance), Cetyl Alcohol, Propanediol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycol Distearate, Behentrimonium Chloride, Polysorbate 60, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Acacia Senegal Gum, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Isopropyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Betaine, Lecithin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Linoleamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Propylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Carrageenan, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Citronellol, Coumarin, Eugenol, Farnesol, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Isoeugenol, Limonene, Linalool.
If you’re surprised to see that Parfum is the second ingredient, you would be right. The cleaners have lots of fragrance and they smell wonderful. The scent is long-lasting but not over-powering which is nice. The Curly Hair Support smells luxurious, almost like a mix of floral and woods which is quite different than most shampoos sold at the drugstore. I loved using this shampoo for the scent alone. Notice the addition of Keratin as one of the ingredients, and the lack of sulfates.
To be honest, I didn’t notice much of a difference between the Curly Hair Support and the Hydration Support. They were both highly conditioning but foaming shampoos for my hair and they both smell amazing. I’m going to continue using them because I like them that much.
