This Week's Answer
Kristin Ess Hair's Scalp Purifying Micellar Shampoo uses micellar water to gently wash away impurities while leaving the natural hair moisture intact. It is noted the rich lather helps prevent the scalp from feeling dry. This product can be used for fine, thin hair or thick, curly hair.
This shampoo contains the company's Zip-Up Technology, a proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles, and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.
