Get Back in Balance with Cortex Care Shampoo:
Is your hair experiencing symptoms of an imbalanced pH? Find out with Yen Body’s Cortex Care Shampoo.
When your hair’s pH is too alkaline, you may suffer from itching and flakiness on your scalp. On the other hand, if your pH is too acidic, your hair may feel dry, brittle, and suffer from excessive split ends. Overly alkaline hair can also lead to frizziness, dryness, and a lack of elasticity.
Indicators that your hair’s pH level is imbalanced:
If it’s too alkaline, you may experience itching and flaking on your scalp. It will cause the hair cuticle to lift, resulting in frizziness, dryness, and rough texture. On the other hand, if it’s too acidic, your hair cuticle will shrink, causing dryness and brittleness, which leads to excessive split ends. Colouring your hair also imbalances your pH, so incorporating a pH-balancing shampoo into your hair care regimen after any colouring service will help maintain healthy, balanced hair.
Being in the 4.5 to 5.5 happy hair balance:
Maximise the health of your hair with Yen Body Cortex Care Shampoo! Our shampoo is designed to restore balance to your hair’s pH, keeping it in the ideal range of 4.5 to 5.5. This helps your scalp fight off environmental aggressors, leading to healthier hair.
Our shampoo is packed with antioxidants, effectively lifting impurities from the scalp for a deep clean. It stimulates the scalp for optimal health and is both vegan and cruelty-free. Additionally, our shampoo is safe for colour-treated hair and provides hydration for a silky-smooth finish.
The cortex is the main bulk and source of colour in your hair, and it’s composed of long keratin filaments held together by disulphide and hydrogen bonds. The health of the cortex depends mainly on the integrity of the cuticle, which protects it.
At Yen Body, the health of your cortex is our top priority. Our pH-balancing shampoo works deep into the cuticle to provide protection from the inside out, and this results in healthier hair and is suitable for all hair types.
Team it up with our Cortex Protection Conditioner
How to use Cortex Care Shampoo: Start by wetting your hair in the shower. Dispense three pumps of the shampoo into the palm of your hand and massage it into your scalp and roots. Scrub away impurities and rinse thoroughly. For best results, repeat the process. Follow up with our Cortex Protection Conditioner for optimal hair health.
For extra cleansing benefits, it is recommended to apply the shampoo twice. The first shampoo will lift oils, dirt, and product build-up from your hair and scalp, while the second shampoo will effectively remove them. Achieve a healthy, refreshed scalp and beautiful hair with every use.
