LUSH solid shampoo bars have been around for quite awhile,…
The way you wash your hair is about to change. Meet Hair is Fabric, another one of my favourite lines from the mothership, Deciem. This line of cleansing conditioners is a one-step hair cleaning product (and no, not a 2-in-1 cheapo like Pert) that targets and solves specific concerns and issues with your hair. Consider it “professional cleaning for your hair”.
As Deciem puts it, “you wouldn’t put couture clothing in the washer. Is your hair less important?”
HIF products come in a squeeze tin tube much like a tube of acrylic paint. Each have 180 mL of product and vary in cleansing, conditioning, foam and activation time levels, which is indicated on the box and label much like a clothing care tag!
HYDRATION SUPPORT $30 CAD
There’s a low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid inside that helps moisture from the scalp outwards. This is my go-to Winter conditioner as it reduces the need for often harsh shampoos and it keeps my scalp hydrated.
You can see this is medium on the cleansing scale and quite high on the conditioning.
It’s a thick white cream that offers little to no foam when cleansing, which drives me a little bit nuts. It leaves my hair so shiny though.
ANTI-BRASS SUPPORT $40 CAD
All summer, this was what kept my hair from getting too brassy. I have natural strawberry blonde hair that justs turns orange under the sun, but the purple carrot extract in this formula really counterbalanced any warm hues in my hair.
This is a mid-level cleansing and conditioning with a high foam level (loooove).
The formula is more like a gel-cream and is suitable for dyed hair (within 3 days of colouring).
Cleansing conditioner (or co-washing) is not a new thing and the trend is spreading like wildfire. In fact, my friend Nicole has been loving HIF Curly Hair support lately, so you should check out her review as well.
There are currently 15 different targeted solutions from Hair is Fabric, from anti-frizz and anti-aging to colour support for brown, ebony, red and blonde to hydration, growth and volume. Plus, since you aren’t using a shampoo, your hair and scalp will thank you.
