I am writing a few posts on shampoo because it affects the scalp, which is skin. And also because while researching the pH of facial products, I learned that pH is also important for shampoo/conditioner. A high pH shampoo may lead to cuticle damage and frizzy hair. When I was researching pH strips, I found a lot of comments made by women who were using them to test their hair products because they wanted to reduce frizz.
I’m a big fan of Davines products in general. I really like the Well-Being Shampoo from their naturaltech line and love the artwork on the bottle. I recently switched to silicone-free hair products and was happy to find that they offer a lot of shampoos and conditioners that are silicone-free.
pH Level: 5.5
Mia’s review: The well-being shampoo is marketed as being hydrating for all hair types. I’ve used nearly an entire bottle of this and have not found it to be drying at all. When I first started using this, I thought it didn’t lather/foam enough and then I must’ve gotten used to it. A couple of weeks ago I again was thinking I wanted more lather so started researching new shampoos. But then today, I thought that it did lather enough. So just be warned that compared to regular shampoos (i.e., ones that aren’t marketed as natural) it lathers/foams less but it still might be enough for you.
