What is pH Balance and Why Does it Matter?

pH is the measure of how acidic or alkaline a substance is, depending on where it falls on the pH scale. The pH scale starts at 0 (most acidic side) and goes up to 14 (most alkaline side). Different substances have different pH levels and if their levels are off, it can have major effects.

Enough of the boring chemistry talk though, let’s talk about it in terms of your hair and its health! Our scalp has a pH level between 4.5 and 5.5, and for our hair to stay healthy, we need to use products that also have a pH balance of 4.5 to 5.5. 

The problem is, a number of hair products are not pH-balanced, meaning they will do more damage than good to our hair. A number of shampoos have a pH between 9 and 10. Using a non pH-balanced shampoo and conditioner will not close the hair cuticle, which can lead to frizzy, dry, brittle hair. It can also lead to dandruff, which no one wants!

For the overall health of your hair, it is important to search for a pH-balanced shampoo and conditioner. Luckily, we have just the solution for you! All of our products have a pH level between 4.5 and 5.5, so you don’t have to worry about damaging your hair. Our shampoo bars are not soap!

Not to mention, our products are also plastic free, so you’re truly getting salon quality products, without the plastic waste. That sounds like a win-win to us!
