Start your natural journey with a balancing act.
Surfactants are the cleaning chemicals used in shampoo. They often over-clean and strip away the sebum – your scalps' natural protective lubricant. Your scalp panic and respond by overproducing oil or by totally drying out – especially if you have textured hair. So you use a conditioner. (A product solemly invented to lessen the drying out effect of shampoos). The conditioner creates a scalp build-up where harmful bacteria can grow. The scalp starts to itch and flake, and you feel the urge to wash again. This perfect vicious unbalanced cycle is great for shampoo companies but horrible for you, your hair and your scalp.
Dakmatter is the new generation of hair care. The products never strip the scalp of its oils and are, by default, prebiotic. Prebiotics are essentially foods consumed by probiotics. Probiotics are the good bacteria inside and on the body that keep us balanced and healthy inside and out.
If you are just transitioning off conventional shampoos and non-organic hair products, you must realise that your scalp will need to "re-learn" how to produce the right amount of sebum. This is called rebalancing.
Rebalancing is not a quick fix – it's a SLOW FIX aimed to last the rest of your life.
So it might take a few weeks to a couple of months for your hair and scalp to fully get back into shape. Don't give up! Our formulas are scientifically tailored to shorten the rebalancing time and give your scalp all the necessary tools to heal and self-regulate as quickly as possible. Depending on your challange – often you may feel a positve change directly after the first use.
One of the most important parts of rebalancing – especially wearing a curly scalp, is not creating a "scalp desert" again. The easiest way to avoid this is to go easy on the washing (if you don't have a particular medical problem telling you otherwise). The faster you learn this, the faster your hair and scalp will start healing and learn how to rebalance.
Overall, keep your hair and scalp care natural. It might not foam, spread and slip the way you're used to. But soon, you wouldn't have it any other way.
Remember - something pretty fantastic is coming your way.
