Time to meet your new shampoo and why we are all about Biotin and Ph Balance!
Why we are talking up PH Balance; well, let me tell you why it is essential to have Yen Body cortex protection shampoo in your hair care routine! The Ph plays a significant role in strengthening your hair. The ph scale goes from 0 to 14. 0 to 6 being acidic. 7 being neutral and 8-14 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 it’s moisture and natural oils while preventing hair breaking.
- Using a PH balancing shampoo and conditioner will bring your hair back to the 4.5 to 5.5 PH range.
Some signs that your hair is out of PH balance
- You find you have problems with itchy and flaky scalp – you’re to Alkaline
- To acidic will cause the cuticle to contract, causing your hair to be feeling dry and brittle.
- To Alkaline This will cause the cuticle to open, leaving your hair frizzy and feeling dry and gritty.
- Colouring your hair does unbalance your PH, so make sure you are using a PH balancing shampoo in your hair care routine after any colour service.
Wash away Impurities and stress from the day; this is your time, your time to have 5 minutes to yourself, five minutes of alone time, 5 minutes to “just be” Take some Yen Body time you deserve it, and so does your hair!

How to use: Now that you’re in the shower, run water through your hair and apply three pumps of your 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 doing two shampoos as the first one lifts oils, dirt and product from the hair and scalp and the second shampoo remove the oils, dirt and product from the hair.
Prickly pear: Have 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, which can cause break down the function of cells and cause breakage of hair follicles which can lead to hair loss.
Biotin: This is our B7 vitamin, which is essential; this helps with thinning hair. This excellent vitamin also stimulates the natural keratin production in your hair, allowing healthier hair growth and nourishing 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 can pull in moisture from the air, so we love having this in our shampoo as moisture is 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 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 also helps with breakage, eliminates frizz and tangles and makes your hair appear fuller. This ingredient helps reduce hair porosity while improving your hair smoothness. How could we not add this ingredient!
