There are no chemicals in Dirty Poo™- just dirt, herbs, honey, and sea kelp. It is safe to use on color-treated hair.
Norwegian Sea Kelp (organic): brown seaweed found along the Atlantic coast of Norway. Sea kelp is abundant in 18 vital minerals, such as potassium, calcium, zinc and manganese and iodine and contains 14 essential vitamins, such as niacin, vitamin K, and folate. Kelp proteins are comparable in quality to animal proteins. Kelp contains sodium alginate (algin), an element that is known to remove radioactive particles and heavy metals from the body.
Kelp (laminaria), the most prolific sea plant on America's shores, contains algin, carrageenan, iodine, potassium, bromine, mucopolysaccharides, mannitol, alginic acid, kainic acid, laminine, histamine, zeaxanthin, protein, vitamins A, B, E, D, K, C, and is rich in minerals.
Aloe Vera (organic) is known to have anti-inflammatory properties for the scalp, help generate hair growth, restore pH levels, promote scalp healing, improve detangling, provide moisture and conditioning, decrease frizz, enhances cellular regeneration, and remediates dandruff. Aloe vera contains protein lectin and amino acids. When absorbed by the cortex of the hair, these are known to add structural integrity to the hair.
Honey (organic) acts as a humectant and prevents moisture loss. The high sugar content helps to retain water, maintain the moisture content of the hair, and keep the hair cuticle soft. Honey is also loaded with antioxidants which are important to prevent free-radical damage, improve nutrient supply, scalp functioning, and healing as well as regeneration of tissue.
Lavender (organic)promotes wound healing and has cleansing, soothing, calming, and restorative properties.
Rosemary (organic): rosemary is known to stimulate the hair follicles, causing the hair to grow long and strong. Rosemary is also known to prevent premature hair loss and stop hair from falling out during brushing, shampooing, or just daily living. It also helps remedy dry, flaky scalp conditions and promotes pigmentation in the hair (prevents premature gray hair and can help reverse grey hair). Rosemary is used to improve circulation to the scalp, which results in renewed cellular health and an increase in the delivery of nutrients to the scalp and hair follicles.
Baking Soda (aluminum free) acts as a very mild cleanser and agitator for dirt removal.
Dry Shampoo: Dip dry fingertips in Dirty Poo and massage onto the scalp to create volume. Allow to sit up to 2 minutes to absorb oils. Brush hair thoroughly until powder is evenly distributed. Repeat if necessary.
