The search for a shampoo alternative originates from the No-Poo Routine—which was popularized by bloggers and influencers who decided to not use detergent products on their hair and scalp. Many, however, prefer to have some kind of washing agent at their disposal and as a result, products like New Wash by Hairstory capture attention.
The direct-to-consumer brand offers a sulfate and paraben-free shampoo alternative that is non-foaming and made with natural ingredients. The fact that the product cleans without detergent is extremely important as many are unaware that "[traditional] shampoo overcleans and strips away [the] body's natural protective oil barrier." In turn, the body responds with overproducing oil that makes hair greasy once more.
Hairstory's shampoo alternative looks to break this vicious cycle by only removing excess oil, dirt, and any styling products. In addition, the company looks to reduce waste by introducing a subscription service with reusable aluminum bottles and refill pouches
