Time to meet your new shampoo and why we are all about Biotin and Ph Balance!
Why it is essential to have Yen Body cortex protection shampoo in your hair care routine:
Your PH level plays a significant role in strengthening your hair. The PH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 0 to 6 being acidic, 7 being neutral and 8 to 14 being alkaline. With our hair, we should be around 4.5 to 5.5.
Being in the 4.5 to 5.5 happy hair balance
- Prevents bacteria in your scalp and hair follicles.
- Will seal your hairs cuticle to maintain its moisture and natural oils while preventing hair breakage.
- Using a PH balancing shampoo and conditioner will bring your hair back to the 4.5 to 5.5 PH range.
Signs that your hair is out of PH balance
- You find you have problems with itchy and flaky scalp – you’re too alkaline.
- Too acidic will cause the cuticle to contract, causing your hair to feel dry and brittle.
- Too alkaline this will cause the cuticle to open, leaving your hair frizzy and feeling dry and gritty.
- Colouring your hair also unbalances your PH, so making sure you are using a PH balancing shampoo in your hair care routine after any colour service will help keep hair at a healthy level.
Wash away impurities and stress from the day; this is your time, your time to have 5 minutes to yourself, 5 minutes of alone time, 5 minutes to “just be.” Take some Yen Body time, you deserve it, and so does your hair!

For best results, follow with our cortex care conditioner
How to use: Now that you’re in the shower, run water through your hair and apply three pumps of the cortex care shampoo into the palm of your hands. Rub together and apply to the scalp and roots area. Scrub the impurities away. Rinse and repeat, follow with our cortex protection conditioner.
We always suggest applying two shampoos as the first one lifts oils, dirt and product from the hair and scalp. The second shampoo removes the oils, dirt and product from the hair.
Prickly pear: Has amino acids that naturally stimulate collagen production to promote a faster cell turnover, removing dead skin cells from your scalp and preventing bacteria from forming. Having prickly pear in your shampoo, will help protect your scalp and strands from the sun, wind, and environmental pollutants and help get your hair’s PH balance to 4.5 to 5.5.
Prickly pear is a huge favourite and is a core ingredient in Yen Body’s Cortex shampoo and hair care routine.
We also love that it has a natural antioxidant, vitamin E, which helps maintain hair growth and protects your hair and scalp from free radicals. This can cause a break down in the function of cells and cause breakage of hair follicles which can then lead to hair loss.
Biotin: This is our B7 vitamin, another essential! This helps with thinning hair. This excellent vitamin also stimulates the natural keratin production in your hair, allowing healthier hair growth and nourishment to your scalp by getting the root of the problem. Team this with our other hair-loving ingredients, and your hair will start to thank you!
Glycerin: This ingredient pulls in moisture from the air, we love having this in our shampoo as moisture is the key to improving dry and damaged hair. It will also nourish your scalp, helping with dandruff, dry and irritated scalps.
Backhousia Citriodora Lemon Myrtle: When deciding on the shampoo’s fragrance, we couldn’t go past the Australian native Lemon myrtle. This remarkable ingredient not only smells fresh and invigorating but has powerful antioxidants and anti-fungal properties. How could we go past these uplifting benefits?!
Hydrolysed Wheat Protein: We are all about moisture, but for our Cortex protection shampoo, we also needed just a dash of protein. Here’s why this protein increases your hair’s ability to receive and retain the moisture we are giving your hair. It helps with breakage, eliminates frizz, tangles and makes your hair appear fuller. This ingredient helps reduce hair porosity while improving your hair smoothness.
