The Perfect Potion For A Dry And Irritated Scalp | A Beauty Minute

Thursday, February 09, 2017

Let's take a beauty minute to discuss this mid-range medicinal-looking product that'll leave your hair smelling like a ginger-ific dream.

What it is: The Body Shop Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

What it does: With the aid of ginger, birch bark and white willow bark extract, plus a little dose of honey, it cleanses your scalp whilst also clarifying its PH so as to soothe and eventually eliminate both dryness and flakiness.

Does it work: Yes. 

Unexpected benefits: It leaves hair feeling soft and mildly conditioned (less tangles to deal with), works for all hair types, and the bottle, despite how it looks, actually has a lot of product to work with. (Although I suppose the fact that a little amount goes a long way helps in this too. This stuff lathers beautifully.)

Bonus point: The slight ginger-ific scent which is pleasant without being overpowering.

Potential pitfalls: Like most other shampoos, overuse of it may dry out your hair's natural oils. Instead of using it exclusively, mix it up with other shampoos and co-washing conditioning products every other week; or better yet, implement a squirt or two of it per wash for gradual but visible results.

Where to get it: I should think that it's available from any The Body Shop outlet next to you. Kenyan readers can get theirs from online beauty hub who deliver straight to your doorstep.
