All of our shampoos are pH balanced for optimum hair and scalp care.
The pH of our shampoos and conditioners is between 5.5 - 6.
Dry, dull, wiry hair can be a sign of hair problems such as a need of protein, moisture, build up, etc. One possible cause that not very many people think is the pH of hair products.
pH stands for “potential hydrogen” and is a measure of acidity and/or alkalinity.
The pH level of hair is between 4.5 and 5.5, so a healthy level for your shampoo would be 5.5 to no more than 7.5.
A shampoo or any hair care product with a higher pH would be drying and cause your hair to be brittle.
The pH scale ranges from 0-14
Acid 0-6.9 (coffee, lemon juice)
Neutral 7 (pure water)
Alkaline 7.1-14 (toothpaste, baking soda)
Skin has a pH of about 5.5, which is mildly acidic. Harsh chemicals can strip away the skin's protective layer. So stick to a gentle soap to keep your skin soft and supple, and avoid over washing in general. It can cause dry, lackluster skin.
Healthy, normal hair ranges from 4.5 to 5.5. When hair becomes too alkaline, it can look damaged and dull. Some things that can cause this are thermal styling, coloring, perming, and bleaching.
