How to Wash With Our New Hydrating Shampoo

According to television commercials, this is how you wash your hair: Plop a half dollar sized amount shampoo on top of your head. Scoop up your remaining hair and mash it all into a foamy cap. And scrub. That’s not shampooing with intention and that’s not how we do it around here! Think of Innersense Organic Beauty hairbaths more like a facial cleanser: Our products are packed with high vibrational plant ingredients that nourish and cleanse the hair and scalp. Our products are meant to be used with love and intention. Here’s how to get the most out of our new Hydrating Cream Hairbath and not be a shampoo commercial!

Start with thoroughly saturated, wet wet wet (did I say wet?) hair. Dispense a dime size amount of Hydrating Cream Hairbath into the palm of your hand. Emulsify this luxurious cream until it spreads and thins, moving it towards the fingertips. Apply to the hairline and nape, massaging and working product onto the scalp. Continue scrubbing the scalp even if no foam is present, add a bit more water to the hair. Massaging the scalp with the fingertips even when no lather is present is still the most effective way to break up the sebum and oils on the scalp, which is really one of the most important parts of a proper shampoo routine.

Massage several more times, paying attention to your scalp. Then rinse the scalp and hair thoroughly. At this point you could start over again, depending how dirty (or undetoxed) your hair and scalp were to start. It is important to note that before you apply more product, be sure to add a bit more water. Once the scalp and roots of the hair are fully attended to then work the remaining hairbath down the hair shaft and unto the rest of the hair. At this point it might be time to add more water and a dime size more product; hair that has not been shampooed in a day or two will most likely need two complete shampoos, the second go around should create a nice lather.

You might experience lather during the first application, that will vary from person to person, your hair type and how long it has been between washings (or if you are new to greener than green shampoos like ours). Once time and attention is placed on this lovely cleansing ceremony, it will become more intuitive and effective for the hair and scalp. And there’s nothing but gorgeous hair days ahead! ~ Joanne

    hi, I just bought your hydrating trio. is their anything I need to do or use before I start using your products? so that all the buildup of the other products go away? Kind of to start clean and fresh?

    • Innersense Tribe says:

      Hi Sandra,

      Thanks for reaching out! By beginning to use our products, that begins the process of removing the build up. We call this the detox period. On average it can take 14 wash days to detox, but this is also a subjective experience. It can take less time or it can take longer, it depends on your hair and scalp. Be sure when you start using our products that you’re only using the recommended amounts of a dime to nickel size amount. If you use too much product that will weight the hair down. Lastly, be sure to utilize lots and lots of water in your hair and to emulsify the products in your palms before applying. Thank you!

    How often do you actually wash your hair using this product?

    • Innersense Tribe says:

      Hi Jen,

      Thanks for reaching out! You should wash your hair as often as you hair needs to be cleansed. It depends on what your hair wants and when it wants to be washed.

      Thank You!

    I’m at the 3 month mark and I still can not get the hydrating cream hair bath to lather on my hair AT All. My hair is as wet as it can get, I’ve emulsified the product in my hands and the minute it hits my hair there is no sign of the product. Not lather, no bubbles, nothing! My hair is not responding to this product and as a result I am struggling to get enough conditioner to get the “slip” and big hydrated curls. Can you please help?! I really want to continue using the products but am so frustrated with my results at home.

    • Innersense Tribe says:

      Hi Nina,

      Thanks for reaching out. Lather ultimately isn’t the indication of clean hair. Our hairbaths are light lather shampoos because we do not have synthetic surfactants (the stuff that makes things lather) so you won’t see that giant foamy lather you see in commercials. It may be that you need to cleanse twice in order to ensure the hair and scalp are cleansed. Be sure that you are massage all the areas of the scalp that produce sebum like the crown, nape of the neck, hair line and temples. It’s all about mindful intention and patience when we cleanse, enjoy the process 🙂

      If there are more areas of struggle we can assist in to make your experience better with our product, we recommend chatting with us directly for a one-on-one hair consultation at 1-877-254-7385.

      Thank You!

  • Hey from SC, Your ingredients look wonderful for my “Frizzy Head” because we get such high humidity and dew points in the summer. Do you have sample packets available? That would be great! Sending light and love, Lynne

    • Innersense Tribe says:

      Hi Lynne,

      We can’t wait for you to try! We do not have sample packettes available online, but we do have 2 oz, travel sizes of most of our products for purchase! Be sure to change the size on the products page before adding to cart!

      Thank You!

    I have been using solely your products for almost 2 months now. I am using your pure harmony hair bath 2-3 times a week and was wondering if an additional clarifying shampoo was needed. I am beginning to have a flaky, itchy scalp on the 2nd to 3rd day after the hair bath, even with water rinsing and scrubbing of the scalp between full washes. Could I still be in a transitioning phase?


    • Innersense Tribe says:

      Hi Allie,

      You don’t need a clarifying shampoo as this will only add more synthetic ingredients back onto your hair and scalp. It’s possible that you are still in the transition phase with our products since you only wash 2-3 days out of the week. However, if you are feeling irritation or experiencing any adverse reaction that would be cause for concern, we absolutely recommend you stop the use of product as you may have a sensitivity or allergy to an ingredient you are not aware of. We recommend seeking the consultation of a dermatologist or your primary care physician.

      Thank You!

    I’m a curly haired gal and keep hearing about importance of a “clarifying” shampoo.
    I have just started using the hydrating trio, volume and hold products. What do you recommend for clarifying?

  • Tracy says:

    Oooops, I see you have already addressed this question, but happy to hear more.

    • Megan Krieg says:

      Hi Tracy,
      No worries, I gave you some awesome links you can look more into about out Oil Detox.
      Sending you lots of happy, healthy hair love!

  • Alana says:

    I just invested in 3 of your products. After taking the test for curls it was suggested I buy color treated. This is more than I’ve ever invested in shampoo. I have never had a reaction and my scalp is itchy beyond belief. I’m past the retailer return date.

    • Innersense Organic Beauty says:

      Hi Alana! We are so sorry to hear you had a reaction to our products. When a reaction occurs, we suggest that you stop using the product, and check with your healthcare provider to determine if you may have had an allergic reaction. We hope this helps! Sending you lots of happy healthy hair love!
