Bouclème Curl Cleanser



Non-foaming cleanser for perfectly hydrated curls

10 oz / 300 ml (also available in a travel size that's great for trial, too)

To all of our friends with thick, curly hair who are 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.

Bouclème’s Curl Cleanser, on the other hand, gently cleanses scalp and hair for a clean feel without disrupting moisture levels, even when it’s used every day. It 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. And to make up for the lack of bubbles, its phthalate-free, essential oil-based fragrance (citrus, spearmint, and magnolia leaf) makes for an extra-revitalizing cleansing experience.

The Curl Cleanser is 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!

Key Ingredients - Aloe's anti-pruritic enzymes destroy dead skin cells of the scalp, reducing scaling and relieving irritation and redness.
- 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.

How to Use

Apply a generous amount of cleanser to fingertips and massage vigorously throughout the scalp. Apply more to the lengths of your hair and loosely detangle. Rinse hair thoroughly, continuing to massage scalp to ensure all product and dirt are washed away.

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.

Testimonials & Press

"This was my first time using a non-foaming cleanser...felt funny at first, but I'm now a believer, completely. It's so much easier to manage my hair now!" - Lissa

"I’ve never been much of a fan of non-foaming hair cleansers (because I have a lot of hair and they don’t seem to be effective), but this cleanser is unlike any other I’ve tried. Somehow the hair and scalp feel so clean and fresh. And while the hair feels super clean, it doesn’t feel like the natural, healthy oils have been stripped away. Oh, and the scent is beautiful!" - Elena
