Non-foaming cleanser for perfectly hydrated curls / 10 oz full size
Bouclème’s Curl Cleanser gently cleanses scalp and hair for a clean feel without disrupting moisture levels, even when it’s used every day. This cleanser features a blend of argan and coconut oils, aloe vera, honey, and linseed and pomegranate extracts to nourish the hair cuticle from the inside out. Additionally, its sulfate-free cleansing base, which features decyl glucoside, helps keep greasy roots at bay.
If you're not used to washing with a non-foaming cleanser, it may be a bit of an adjustment. But if you have thick, curly hair and you're lathering up with bubbles on a regular basis: we know bubbles are fun, but please think about going without. At least as an experiment. Because foaming shampoos can be truly irksome for curly hair — they tend to ruffle the cuticle, strip both scalp and hair of natural oils, and dehydrate already parched curls. Cleansing with a non-foaming formula like this one will help set you up for less frizz and silky, hydrated curls.
Both this Curl Cleanser and Bouclème’s Fragrance Free version are ideal for medium to thick hair textures. If you have very fine, loose waves, you may prefer their Hydrating Hair Cleanser.
Bouclème formulas never include silicones, sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, petroleum, propylene glycol, PEGs, phthalates, artificial colors, or artificial fragrances. They also perform better than anything we've ever seen for curly hair — and we've done a lot of testing. A lot.
Plus, they make helpful instructional videos!
How to Use
Since this cleanser doesn't foam, it can take a little getting used to. If you've been using very foamy shampoos with sulfates, your scalp's oil production, which might be in overdrive, will need some time to reach a new state of balance. As it normalizes, your roots might feel a little greasy for a few weeks. If that happens, be patient! Your curls will thank you for it.
- Hydroxypropyltrimonium honey is pure honey with a positive (cationic) charge to reduce stickiness. The positive charge of cationic ingredients enables them to bond to the negatively charged areas of damaged hair for enhanced conditioning and repair. It’s ultra-moisturizing, with double the humectant activity of glycerin. It also has a low molecular weight for exceptional penetration to give long-term moisture, shine, and smoothness.
- Coconut oil has excellent moisture-retaining properties and helps reduce the natural protein loss in damaged and undamaged hair.
- Cetearyl alcohol, polyglyceryl-3 dicitrate/stearate and distearoylethyl dimonium chloride are surfactants that help break down the surface tension of oils; they have a cleansing as well as conditioning action.
