What is shampoo or shampoo?

Well, it is simply a hygiene product that is normally liquid soap (there is also a bar or tablet shampoo) that is used to clean the hair and scalp. With the exception of the Bio Shampoos , the conventional ones have a cocktail of chemicals that can be harmful to health, especially when we use them several times a week because these chemicals accumulate in our body.

Surely both your hair and scalp will appreciate you using a natural shampoo , without that cocktail of harmful chemicals that commercial shampoos carry. To this we add that we personalize it and we do it according to our needs at each moment and our taste.

Having healthy , shiny, strong and full-bodied hair is very simple.
