Hair that is curly, wavy, kinky and/or thick is often porous, and after a while, all the products used to tame or style it, can weigh it down. That makes hair look dull and drippy, but it also can cause a dry, flaky scalp.
Hair Rules Aloe Grapefruit Purifying Shampoo comes in a pristine, white bottle with flip top and colorful graphics. It has no parabens, sulfates, glycerin, or silicone, and what it does, is gently removes product buildup and environmental residue from scalp and hair, restoring movement and shine without stripping all the natural oils you do want, out of your hair. The no sudsing formula might take a little getting used to, because we are all used to a mountain of lather, but it will cleanse your hair thoroughly.
Hair Rules is a solutions-oriented line of cleansers, conditioning treatments and styling aids specifically geared to the special needs of kinky, curly and wavy hair. But Hair Rules is a salon as well as a product line, created by model Kara Young Georgiopolous along with Co-Founder and Creative Director, Anthony Dickey. Hair Rules New York is located at 828 Ninth Avenue (between 54th and 55th Streets). Dickey knows how to deal with textured hair, and he has created iconic hairstyles for designers, advertisers, photographers and celebrities alike. Sarah Jessica Parker, Minnie Driver, Alicia Keys, Kelis, and Andre 3000 are just a few of the notables he has styled for editorials in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Essence, Vibe, The New York Times Magazine, Glamour, and Allure, just to name a few.
At $20.00 for 8 oz. of shampoo, Hair Rules isn’t a typical bargain drugstore brand. And yes, you will still need to use a conditioner and any other styling products you are fond of. But if you have “challenging” hair, you know that anything that keeps it healthy and beautiful, is priceless. If you have wavy hair you might want to “decongest” it fairly often. If your hair is curly, maybe 1-3 times per month, and if your hair is really kinky, once a month should do it.
