Shampoo is primarily a cleanser and a wash. Our two shampoos have been specifically formulated to maintain the pH and microbiome of the scalp. They are gentle and non-abrasive. If you have oily and untreated hair, prefer the Reverse shampoo. Otherwise, opt for the strengthening one. Just like a facial cleanser, shampooing will wash but will not deeply clean or repair your hair in any way. That's why we recommend alternating your washes with Flora scrubs for this purpose.
