Josh Rosebrook Balance Shampoo



Mildly foaming shampoo for balanced to oily scalps and any type of hair

8 oz / 240 ml regular size or 2 oz/60ml travel size

Balance is a mildly foaming shampoo that’s ideal for balanced to oily scalps and any type of hair — although it’s particularly marvelous on fine, thin hair that needs volume. Our team of oily-scalped staffers loves Josh’s original Nourish formula, too, for its pleasantly tingly feel; his newer Balance formula is similar, but left their scalps feeling a little cleaner for a longer period of time. Citrus oils help refresh the scalp and remove just the right amount of excess oil.

For those of you with oily scalps but dry hair lengths, try pairing Balance shampoo paired with Nourish conditioner or EVOLVh’s conditioner. If you have fine hair with thin density Balance shampoo and conditioner together will help it appear fuller and more voluminous.

But here's the deal with this shampoo: you really do need to follow the instructions under "how to use" below. They may seem fussy, but they will completely change the way the shampoo works for you. As Josh explained to us recently, "Conventional shampoos are mostly detergent, so they cause a lot of foaming action very easily with just a little product in one area of the head; people are used to this and expect it. With natural shampoos, which rely on clean surfactants and foam only minimally in order to retain beneficial scalp oils, you need to spread out the product more carefully. You can't just blop it on the top of your head." So please don't blop, okay? 

For additional advice about shampooing (such as how often to do it and whether you should switch your shampoo from time to time), check out our interview with Josh himself on the topic here.

How to Use

Divide scalp into four areas: top, sides, and back. Apply a small amount to each area. Massage in thoroughly, adding more water as you massage to help distribute suds. Leave in 1-3 minutes, allowing micronutrients to stimulate follicle circulation and nourish scalp.
Rinse and repeat if necessary.

Testimonials & Press

"Balance was a perfect name for this one - it's gently cleansing without ever being drying. The formula hits that sweet spot between soaking up excess oil and drying out your scalp completely, leaving you with effortlessly volumized and manageable hair." - Morgan of Blushing Wit
