The Hair Treatment Your Inner Flower Child Has Been Dreaming Of

“First, dispense two pumps of the High Healing Hair & Scalp Oil ($38 for 2 oz) to your palm and apply to your wet hair. Wrap your hair and let the oil sit and absorb into for at least 20 minutes while you read a book or flip through your favorite magazine. Next, lightly rinse out the oil in the shower and apply the Active Botanicals Shampoo ($38 for 8oz) to your hair. Massage the nutrients to your scalp and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Then apply Rich Recharge Conditioner ($38 8oz) and repeat. Make sure to let the ingredients sit long enough to truly hydrate your hair. These products moisturize roots to tips, soothes dry scalp, reduces frizz, adds shine, and balances your hair.” – Carla Gentile, co-founder at STEAM

1. Cleansing your skin is the only way to remove: Germs, Dirt, Excess Oil, Sweat, Odor, Products, like makeup, and Dead Skin.

2. Produces bacteria-fighting “sebum”: Tiny glands under your skin produce a light yellow, oily substance called sebum which moisturizes and protects your skin. When you properly cleans your skin, whether that’s scalp, face or body, sebum protects your skin. The tiny hair follicles on your skin also allow this oily substance to reach the surface and create a protective barrier that prevents the penetration of harmful bacteria. Excessive dirt and buildups cause blockages of your follicles, which to your detriment, traps sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells, causing inflammation (much like acne).

3. Cleansing boosts hydration. Regular cleansing helps manage pH levels of your skin, which enables sufficient water and product retention.

4. Maintains good skin. Good cleansing products are important to remove the build-up on your skin so it can then deliver essential nutrients in your cleansers.

5. When cleansing is supercharged with cannabis:
– Helps to manage anti-aging treatments
– Helps maintain proper pore size
– Encourages proper hydration
– Prevents the production of excess oils
