Using a natural shampoo used to be a big compromise. Trading off chemicals to be natural meant dull, lifeless and sticky hair that actually felt worse than it looked. Our customers begged us to develop a shampoo that felt and looked like salon brands, but without all the chemicals. They wanted a conditioner that created the shine and luminosity of salon brands, but without the silicone. Four years in development and we have done it. Mangrove is not only natural, it is Super Natural! �and like all Keys products, Mangrove is Chemical-Free!
Mangrove takes a very complex process to make it. Traditional methods for making a Castile soap produce high fatty acid level that cause the hair to cake and thicken. Many people who do not treat their hair with color or do not use SLS based shampoos can use regular Castile soap to wash their hair. This is such a small percentage of the population, that we researched ancient methods to find a way to create a Castile type shampoo that feels and performs like a salon developed shampoo. We discovered a 600 year old recipe used in Wales. We then used state-of-the-art oils to create Mangrove.
You can tell your hair is clean when you use Mangrove because it squeaks. Mangrove does not strip the hair or remove color. It squeaks because the surface of the hair has all of the residue removed. The natural oils deposit on the scalp to condition the hair follicle while keeping the hair clean. Follow with Mangrove conditioner and the hair will be silky without becoming greasy. The combination of the shampoo and conditioner leaves hair looking shiny and smooth.
Recommendations for use:
Wet your hair and apply about three or four pumps of the Mangrove foam to your hands. Wash hair adding or reducing the amount of foam as you experience the proper amount for your hair type and length. Wash thoroughly until the foam reduces or disappears. Then rinse. Repeat the process again. If you have been using silicone based conditioners or SLS shampoos, it might take a week of use to clear out all the old residue and experience the true feel of a Mangrove clean shampoo.
- Tip 1: Shampoo and Repeat Mangrove is a very interesting shampoo that has great conditioning properties. What I found is that when I wash my hair with Mangrove and then repeat, my hair takes on a wonderful shine without looking heavy.
- Tip 2: Don�t Shampoo Daily, but if you must� Experts all say that shampooing daily harms your hair and actually causes it to look more lifeless. I agree, but if you are one of those people that just has to shampoo daily, wash once with Mangrove and use Mangrove conditioner as a light leave-in rejuvenator styler.
- Tip 3: Mangrove Head-To-Toe We have had many of our customers use our Island Rx head-to-toe. The same is true of Mangrove. For those of you who hike in national Parks, Mangrove is 100% biodegradable. You can wash in stream and lakes with the confidence that you will feel as clean as you can while being safe for the environment.
