Scalp Care Shampoo (250ml)


Looking for natural hair care with a hair and scalp shampoo that maintains good hair condition?

It’s easy to forget the importance of scalp care because the scalp is usually a ‘hidden’ area. The scalp can overheat, may retain moisture when the weather is humid or rooms are steamy, and it can suffer in other ways in stuffy or smoky environments – all these events are usually overlooked.

Scalp problems – itchiness, flaking and dandruff can be embarrassing and uncomfortable to live with.

Containing a high concentration of 30% McArthur Pawpaw Extract, our scalp care shampoo is formulated for use on sensitive, dry, flaky, or itchy scalps. Packed full of antioxidants, this soothing shampoo uses the special qualities of Pawpaw to gently clean hair and exfoliate the scalp, reducing flakiness and providing beautiful, healthy looking hair.

    Arthritis cream

    Recently I purchased some scalp care shampoo. Included in this purchase was a complimentary tube of arthritis cream. As I was in pain at the time of receiving it I thought I had nothing to lose by trying it. To my surprise the pain stopped. I will continue using this product. Many thanks for allowing me to try it.
