Everything at Scintilla has been handmade using ingredients and materials from trusted suppliers to help bring more sustainable and affordable alternatives to everyday routines.
The shampoo melts contain plant extracts such as Baobab oil for softening, Seaweed to give strength and shine, and Hemp to protect against breakage. The Baobab is highly active in this formulation to help condition hair.
10% of profits are donated to the charities SEED Madagascar and Mind.
How to: Use one melt per wash, or for shorter hair just a half, adapting the size when you get a feel for the product.
Wet hair and then with damp hands rub the melt between your finger tips into the opposite hand to form a loose granular dough. Add a little water and then use closed fingers and palm to spread evenly over the top and length of hair. Continue to add water until a lather is built up. Massage through hair and across the scalp to fully cleanse and then rinse.
In contrast to bottled hair care, 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.
Each melt contains the power for one good wash with this box of 30 designed to last a month if you’re an everyday hair washer. This product comes in a cardboard box lined with biodegradable paper so please recycle and/or compost all your packaging when finished.
