Your order comes with one 8 oz bottle of Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo, one 16 oz rinsing bottle (unless otherwise indicated), full instructions and information. Where's the conditioner? Our products are a little bit different to use; it may take some getting used to. Instead of using a detergent shampoo (that strips your hair) and conditioner (that covers up the damage the shampoo did) we use a natural soap to clean and vinegar to balance hair's pH. The cleansing is so gentle you don't need conditioner, and the vinegar makes your hair exceptionally strong. Conventional shampoos and conditioners contain synthetic proteins and plasticizers that coat the hair. They have to do this to cover up the damage that the synthetic detergents in the shampoo do to your hair. Our shampoo doesn't strip the hair of its oils, only removes the excess. You'll actually go through a hair "detox" period, where the synthetic proteins will be removed and you'll be able to feel your hair for the first time without these synthetic coatings. It will become naturally soft and smooth, and, as new hair grows in, it won't suffer the damage of the conventional shampoos. Over time, your hair's appearance will grow shinier and be stronger.
The Organic Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo contains sweet almond oil, macadamia nut oil, and jojoba oil for added conditioning. Jojoba oil is very similar in structure to our hairs' own natural oils, so it's a great conditioning agent. Sweet almond oil has long been used on hair and skin, and helps to strengthen skin and clarify scalp. And we've added sweet-smelling macadamia nut oil for added conditioning and softness. Peppermint and spearmint essential oils stimulate scalp and tea tree essential oil has been used historically to help itchy, dry, and oily scalp, fighting dandruff-causing fungus and promoting the healthy balance of scalp. We recommend this shampoo for normal to dry hair, even though, technically, there is no such thing as dry hair. Want to know why?

Directions: Place a quarter-sized dollop of shampoo into your palm and lather into hair. If you have thick or long hair, you may want to make a horizontal part on the back of your head and apply an extra dollop of shampoo to ensure you clean your entire scalp. Lather up and rinse as usual.
Vinegar rinse instructions: Fill the provided rinse bottle to the line with vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar work great), and fill to the top with water. Pour entire contents of the bottle onto your hair. Repeat the rinse until you can run your fingers through all your hair.
Shelf Life: 2 years after date of purchase.

Please note: You will have difficulty with this shampoo if you have hard water. This is a soap, not a detergent, so if you have hard water, the calcium deposits in the water combine with the soap and create soap scum in your hair. There are some ways around this, like using baking soda with the shampoo. For more info, visit our shampoo FAQs page.
