If staying at home taught us anything, it's that maybe we don't need to wash our hair as much as we do. More and more people have been discovering that frequent shampooing can strip your natural oils.
One product that people have been raving about is Hairstory's New Wash. You see, it's not shampoo or conditioner. It's a sulfate-free alternative to shampoo that still conditions. It cleans without detergent, and its natural ingredients never strip away your hair's protective barrier. Users are claiming that this product has made their hair the healthiest it's even been!
Curious about New Wash? Here are all your questions answered.
How do they know what my hair needs?
Hairstory's knows that everyone has their own unique hair story, and that no two heads of hair are the same. With that in mind, they have a 23-question quiz to help you find which are the right products for you, and how to tailor them for your hair and bring out the best of your hair.
They ask questions about what you use to wash your hair, how often you wash it, how soon it gets oily, your hair thickness, texture and length, and what tools you use on your hair. Then, they'll save your answers and use them to decide which of the 3 formulas, and what reorder frequency, makes the most sense for you.
What makes it different from my regular shampoo and conditioner?
Most shampoo contains sulfates and other detergents that over-clean your hair- the same detergents found in cleaning products! If it foams, it means it strips away your scalp's natural protective oils, so our body ends up over producing oils in response. Plus, we try to replace some of the moisture that's stripped away by using a conditioner, and our hair is greasy again in no time. Unfortunately, this cycle is not good for your hair.
When you think about it, people used to use soap to wash their face before realizing that a gentle cleanser is much better for their skin and won't dry it out. The same applies to your hair and scalp. Shampoo is soap for your hair, and Hairstory is a gentle cleanser.
New Wash's natural ingredients break the vicious cycle and let your scalp calm down, leaving your hair healthier, less frizzy and damaged, and looking way better. Plus, by not using detergents, your color will last longer.
What kind of ingredients do they use?
New Wash doesn't have any harsh chemicals. It includes Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, "Jojoba" seed oil, "Evening Primrose" oil, Sunflower seed oil, Peppermint oil, Rose oil, as well as many other non-harmful ingredients for conditioning and strengthening your hair, like keratin. Because of its lack of toxic ingredients, New Wash is certified as inherently biodegradable, too. It's so safe that a lot of parents are comfortable using it on their young children, and even on their face as a cleanser.
How long will it take my hair to get used to it?
This solely depends on you and your hair type. If you wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner a few times a week, it could take a few washes for your hair to fully transition to not using it. Some people have no transition issues, but on average it can take 2-4 weeks of using New Wash 'til the results are fully set in.
People with thick or curly hair may have more ease making the switch, whereas those with finer and oiler hair tend to have a longer transition period, but boy is it worth it in the end! Users report the shiniest, healthiest hair they've ever had!
How much does it cost?
It costs $40 for 8 oz., which may seem like a lot, but that one bottle lasts a whole 50 days on average. Plus, you're going from two hair products (shampoo & conditioner) to one, and your hair will be much healthier and less frizzy, so no need to use any hair masques or deep conditioners. Plus, you won't find yourself needing to buy expensive hair masks and detanglers. Overall, you'll end up saving money on hair products! The larger sizes will also save you %!
How do the refills work?
Hairstory has a Refill Club, where members can subscribe and get a discount on their New Wash, plus free shipping! Refill Club members receive an aluminum refillable container equipped with a convenient pump dispenser. Every 10-14 weeks you'll be sent a pouch to refill your bottle. So it's convenient, and it means 63% less plastic consumption.
