Green Clean: A new way to wash your hair

This month I'd like to introduce you to a product that's been flying off our virtual shelves at Conscious House London: a waterless shampoo product, the Green Clean Shampoo Melts.



This shampoo product was a long time in development with lots of fine-tuning to get the best performance for hair, whilst having no environmental impact. Made from 100% natural ingredients including a gentle biodegradable surfactant (bubble-maker) and three key plant extracts, Baobab, Hemp and Seaweed, these melts are the perfect treat your hair needs, with zero environmental impact. With a waterless formula packed with lots of delicious plant-based ingredients and essential oils, each wash will nourish, protect and promote healthy hair growth. These mighty melts will leave you feeling clean, soft and shiny - I don't even use a conditioner now.


Even better, each melt is only 3cm x 1.5cm in size and in solid form so not only do they take up little room in your bathroom cupboard, they're also perfect for travelling. No need to worry about your weight or liquid allowance and the conditioning oils in the formula will treat sea-salted hair beautifully.

So how do you use them?


First wet your hair thoroughly and then, shaking most of the moisture off your hands, squeeze the melt until you have a squishy, granular dough. Add a little water to the mixture in your hands and then using your closed fingers and palm, rub in a circular motion across the scalp to start the lather. Dip your head under the water regularly to build up the lather and, if you have long hair, use both hands and rub the hair between your palms to reach the lengths. Rinse, and then brush and dry as you would normally.


It's true, like any alternative to bottled shampoo (which, by the way contains usually at least 40-50% water, how does your purse feel about that?!) you'll need to change your technique to find the best way to spread the lather. Due to the natural surfactant, and the combination of oils and plant proteins in the formula, the lather will froth a little less than typical bottled shampoo - don't worry, after the first wash you'll find the clean is deeper, it just works with less bubble.
