First let’s determine what kind of hair you have. Take our hair quiz here! Now that you know what your hair type is, let’s review the steps for a perfect routine.
Step 1: Shampoo
Cher-Mère Herbal Shampoo gently cleans and restores hair. Best results occur when used in conjunction with one of our Conditioners that best suits your hair needs. Our herbal shampoo with rachette (cactus) and aloe vera is ph balancing without any parabens or sulfates. “Parabens are the most frequently used chemical in personal care products to preserve them from growing fungus, bacteria or microbes. Sulfates are the chemicals in a product that cleanse and causes the great lathering experience”. These chemicals can cause health issues, like tumours, and leave residue inside your body. Sulfates can also irritate your scalp, and dry your hair out. Opt. for Cher-Mere hair care that NEVER uses any harsh chemicals.
Step 2: Conditioner
We have three conditioners for you to choose from based on hair type. Our conditioners' detangles, moisturizes and softens hair.
Herbal Deep Conditioner with Rachette and Aloe are for all hair types: normal, straight, curly etc. This conditioner uses rosemary and soy protein to deep conditioning the hair. After shampooing apply a small amount to your hair leave on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing out.
