The Pollution Patrol Shampoo Bar!

In today's climate the hair is exposed to air pollutants such as gases, dust, dirt and soot that compromise the scalp and the hairs health. Styling hair products can also contribute to this problem by allowing these to stick to the hair and even penetrate the skin of the scalp. Washing the hair and scalp is extremely important to remove any impurities and product build-up, depending on which shampoo you choose to perform this necessary task. The Rescue My. Hair™ Pollution Patrol Shampoo Bar utilises special ingredients to perform a thorough cleanse of the hair and scalp but what does it contain?

Opening the environmentally friendly and recyclable packaging, the Pollution Patrol Shampoo Bar is presented perfectly waiting to be used. Lathering the bar in damp hands and applying the lather to wet hair making sure you massage the scalp to stimulate and dislodge any impurities will ensure an efficient clarifying treatment for the hair.  The fresh and floral scent influences your wellbeing throughout the rinsing off stage and hair is left feeling clean without being overly stripped because of the conditioning ingredients included. The shampoo bar cleverly deep cleanses the hair from pollutants and product build-up whilst still respecting the scalps pH and keeping the integrity of the hair intact by being gentle. Applying a mask or conditioner after the shampoo bar is used, you will discover they will work much more efficient because there is not a barrier or impurity there stopping them from penetrating, to work at their best.
