Self Care: Wash Day vs. Rizos Reset
In the new year, and honestly several times throughout the year, we could use a reset. Fresh starts, clean slates, new beginnings..all the things! It is good in life to take time to dive deeper every now and again or whenever you are feeling like it is necessary to get back on track and recalibrate. Its always a good time to wipe things clean and begin again.
In life and in hair care, sometimes we have to pause the regular routine in favor of the full reset. This is the carved out time, dedicated to your curls and scalp, performing a deep clean with our intentionally curated hair & scalp treatments that breathe new life and bring your hair & scalp back to square one. Regular wash days maintain health & luster to your hair, but the boost from deep treatments is everything you need to keep your curls in tip top condition.
Wash Day Ritual
Once or twice a week, your hair and scalp could benefit from a good scrub to remove dirt and grime gathered from multi-day curls. Product build up, environmental debris, sebum and sweat can be cleansed away with a deep cleansing shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner. Sulfate, paraben and silicone-free, Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo will gently cleanse without over drying strands and scalp with natural ingredients like Moringa Oil that moisturizes, strengthens and protects hair & scalp. Rich in vitamins & nutrients, Moringa Oil helps defend against split ends & fortifies hair follicles. This shampoo also contains Shea Butter, which locks in moisture without making hair greasy helping make this cleansing formula a perfect balance to clean and moisturize. After shampooing, using conditioner is a must to restore any lost moisture and to soften and restore manageability. Rizos Curls Deep Conditioner is super moisturizing with Olive Oil that cleanses the scalp, smooths hair & improves elasticity. It also has Sunflower Oil which promotes healthy hair growth, reduces product build up & alleviates dry scalp. Also included, Coconut Oil, that reduces frizz, prevents hair breakage & split ends. This dynamic duo, Hydrating Shampoo & Deep Conditioner is perfect for maintaining healthy wash day habits and and keeping hair and scalp clean on a regular basis.
