 Shampoo

Shampoo

Hi, I have a fun story that I would love to share with you about on our new ultra-rich shampoo that made me feel really good about our new product.

I was getting my hair highlighted last week -- I've been having my hair highlighted for probably fifteen years, the last 8 by the same person, Annette. She did the coloring ... and she went to comb through my hair, to cut it. She remarked that that usually she has a little trouble getting through on the ends. . . gets a little tangled . . . . the comb is jerky and stops because my hair is damage -- certainly from all the years of color processing -- this time the comb was going through my hair smoothly.

Annette said, "You're using the same shampoo and conditioner that I gave you six months ago?"

"Actually", I said, "I've come out with some products of our own, Dolce Mia, and I've been using our samples for about three months. I use the shampoo every time I wash my hair and I've started using the conditioner as well, but the shampoo have been using consistently for about three months. She wanted to know all about it.

I explained to her that I had developed the shampoo for the hotel amenities market. I went to our soap company, which is a local family-run business like ourselves and said I needed a midline shampoo. I don't need anything real fancy but I'd like something nice. What this company makes for us already is a simple tried-and-true recipe add forgetting things clean. You do a great job with liquid soap and bar soap as well. I just said, send me some of your shampoo. I noticed it was very simple. I could have messed around with the formula and maybe added some things that are popular these days like Moroccanoil or other botanicals but I thought, you let me just try it like it is. It literally has just four ingredients. Well, I loved it and Alex loved it and my friends loved it and my mother loved it. So so we brought it into the market for the hotel world and little did I know that it would be so wonderful for such a broad audience as well.

When we set out to design a shampoo, we knew we would have a conditioner as well, so we didn't need a shampoo that would double as a conditioner. And we knew we wanted, above all, not to compromise on experience. We didn't want a shampoo that just sat there, not smelling like anything, and not feeling like anything. We wanted a fragrance we would love and look forward to, and a rich lather that would take us away. Of course, the shampoo needed to clean great too, and leave our hair shiny and ready for conditioning.

Beauty experts choosing a shampoo that is safe for colored hair, gentle and effective, look for the ingredient Tea-laurel sulfate Triethanolamine laurel sulfate, precisely because it's safe for color and produces a rich lather. There are other sulfates, used in lower end brands, which are harsh, and are not preferred by people knowlegable about skin-care. But the more expensive Tea-laurel is trusted by salon professionals for the way it complements the other factors of efficacity in a shampoo, and creates the user experience of lots of bubbles, which helps get the fragrance out into the open where you can enjoy it.
