If your hair is in generally good condition, and is not excessively oily or is not in extremely dry condition, these variants will be good for you to use on a daily basis. One shampoo and a light condition will suit most people. However, if you live in an environment that exposes your hair and scalp to pollutants and other impurities, or if you use styling products, a second shampoo may be required. Apply shampoo to the scalp and lather through to the ends. Ensure that the shampoo is completely rinsed from your hair. When conditioning, apply a small amount, starting at the ends, working through to the roots, then rinse thoroughly.
In order to achieve the best possible outcome for better looking and condition of your hair, it is important to understand the fundamental technical aspects of hair and scalp nutrition and treatments. A close-up of a single hair shaft resembles overlapping scales. When the scales are sealed, the hair shaft appears smooth and shiny. When the scales are open, the hair appears rough and porous.

For better looking hair, Australian Organics go for even smoothness of the hair shaft from root to tip. This is achieved by careful cleansing of the roots and correct conditioning, moisturising and sealing of the hair itself.
Hair is made up of about 97% protein and 3% water. As hair is far more fragile when wet, gentle cleansers are necessary to avoid damage and breakage to hair shafts.
As part of the process to achieve healthy hair and scalp, Australian Organics use a formulation developed with mild cleansers usually only found in professional salon products (no SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulphates) together with Plant Proteins and Organic Plant Extracts (improves lustre, moisture retention and manageability), Almond Glycerides (water soluble, powerful humectants that silken, moisturise and improve manageability), Horsechestnut Extract (improves blood circulation to the scalp), and Provitamins.
At the molecular level, the Australian Organics provitamin mix strengthens cells and assists new cell generation. Hair is made of structural proteins called keratin, which are long chain molecules composed of eighteen different amino acids. Vitamins are organic compounds necessary for normal functioning of the body. The lower molecular weighted provitamins are small enough to penetrate cells for substantive moisturising, thereby adding body to each hair shaft. The higher molecular weighted proteins affix themselves to the outside of the hair shaft forming monomolecular layers that provide a cushion effect for added hair bounce and promote shine and silkiness.
