Use and care
2 fl. oz. yield compostable packet - Perfect for sampling the product to try it out for the first time, or using for travel. The packet contains 0.21 oz. (6g) of granules, and yields 2 fl. oz. of liquid shampoo when mixed with hot water. Fits perfectly in our 2 oz. travel jars.
8 fl. oz. yield packet - One packet creates one batch of liquid shampoo. Pour the granules into any of our 8 oz. reusable pump bottles, fill the rest with hot water, mix, and let cool! This compostable packet contains 0.85 oz. (24g) of granules, and yields 8 fl. oz. of liquid shampoo.
End of life
These granules were very moist, almost a clay-like substance. Given the package is very thin, it was challenging to get out. I had to get some tweezers - I never did get it all out. Then I couldn't pour them into my bottle or even use a funnel because the clumps were too big. Once the water was added, the consistency was OK, but I don't feel like it conditioned my hair very well at all. I really really wanted to love this, but I just didn't.
I purchased a trial size of the citrus scent, but I would not recommend that scent. The scent does not linger, but it does smell "off" while using the shampoo. I mixed the packet with (an unknown amount of) water in a 3 fl. oz. travel bottle (emptied packet into bottle, added water to under 3 fl. oz. (aiming for 2 fl. oz.), shook the bottle). The consistency of the product is not very viscous (more liquid-y) and kind of slippery (similar to the Fresh soy face cleanser). Quite a bit of product must be used (I usually use about the size of a grape, but for this product I needed multiple grapes) to lather the product and get a clean hair feeling. I used it in combination with Olaplex no. 5 conditioner. My hair felt soft, clean and nice after air drying. What I like about this product is that I can prepare shampoo based on my use/demand instead of purchasing a giant bottle that will take me years to go through. ***I may have over diluted the product.
I got the trial size as I was curious and it felt really harsh on my hair. Tried to use all of it but noticed my hair was consistently dry and felt brittle after use so rinsed the rest down the drain.
