At BRIXY, we began with courage in our conviction that exceptional hair and skin care didn’t have to come in plastic bottles. We're taking products that are better-for-you with mindfully made ingredients and making them better-for-the-planet, with zero plastic packaging.
With that belief in mind, we designed our first shampoo bars to work well across all hair types, whether straight, curly or coily. This decision was based on the knowledge that at the time, solid hair care was still a new concept for most people, and we wanted our products to appeal to a wide range of customers we could introduce to the plastic-free movement. Now that we’ve been around for almost two years, we’re ramping up to introduce our next round of products which include travel accessories, facial care and drum roll please… Functional shampoos bars for targeted results. All of course plastic-free and using sustainable packaging materials like Forest Stewardship Council certified paper stock. This is huge because we know that there are many beauty enthusiasts out there who prefers to use products designed specifically for their unique hair type or goals. If that’s you, read on! We’ve got you covered with products coming to market in March 2024.
Now, since we all know that people and hair types are so beautifully diverse, we thought it would be fun to cover some of the major hair types and what ingredients you should look for to maximize results. So, without further ado… let’s get into the best ingredients to look for based on your hair type.
Shampoo Bar for Oily Hair:
Oily hair requires a delicate balance, and our Balancing Shampoo Bar for Oily Hair was formulated to control oil production and balance and pH for those whose scalps produce a bit more sebum than they’d like. Packed with natural ingredients like sulfate free plant-based cleansers, this shampoo bar will clean hair effectively, yet gently. If you have fine hair that tends to fall limp on your head and pick up more oil, this will also give you a natural lift at the root to improve volume and keep your hair fresh longer. This shampoo bar also does a wonderful job for anyone using lots of leave in styling products that can build up over time and lead to even more oil production on the scalp as well as weight hair down. Whether you have a straight, curly or coily hair pattern, if you’re looking to control oil but still hydrate your stands, this Balancing Shampoo Bar for Oily Hair is for you.
Shampoo Bar for Dry Hair & Shampoo Bars for Curly Hair:
These can easily go hand in hand due to similar goals for each of these hair types. Dry hair deserves an extra dose of hydration, and our moisture-rich Hydrating Shampoo Bar for Dry Hair is up for the task. Enriched with nourishing aloe, shea butter and coconut oil, it restores moisture, leaving your hair dry or damaged hair silky-smooth and revitalized. This bar is also designed for our curly and coily haired beauties out there whose hair tends to need more hydration as their curl patterns require it to help the cuticle lay flat and combat frizz. Climate, age and other environmental factors can also cause our hair to dry out, so this Hydrating Shampoo Bar for Dry Hair is your savior when living in dry climates. In addition, we’ve added our BRIXY Blend of ceramides and niacinamide to help promote a healthy scalp and hair barrier that seals in moisture and protects from severe climate, pollution and UV rays. This formula really takes it up a notch for anyone looking to revive dry dull or damaged locks.
Shampoo Bar for Thinning Hair:
Hair thinning happens to so many of us and for various reasons. It can cause major stress to already busy and stressful lives, so we created a product to help you achieve the hair of your dreams without any harsh chemicals. While it’s important to identify the root cause and correct it, there are some natural remedies that have proven effective to promote healthy hair growth and combat thinning.
Our Strengthening Shampoo Bar for Thinning Hair is formulated with pumpkin seed oil, rosemary oil and caffeine. This is a triple thread ingredient line up for anyone looking to stimulate blood flow to the scalp and promote a healthy ecosystem for hair to grow. Pumpkin seed oil is a lesser-known hair growth remedy and in a 2021 study, was proven to perform just as well as Minoxidil. Read that again! Rosemary oil has long been hailed as a top hair growth remedy. It helps improve circulation, promote nerve growth and has anti-inflammatory properties. Caffeine is another power player for circulation and has growth promoting properties when applied topically. In fact, a 2007 lab study found that caffeine helped block the effects of DHT in both males and females as well as helped stimulate hair shaft elongation, while prolonging the anagen duration, which is the growth stage for hair.
Another suggestion we have for anyone looking to use our Strengthening Shampoo Bar for Thinning Hair, is to incorporate a scalp massage into your routine. This feels great, helps reduce stress and just 5-10 minutes can help encourage blood flow to the scalp.
Shampoo Bar for Colored Hair:
Good news here! All BRIXY shampoo bars are pH balanced and color safe. We’ve set out to ensure that your hard-earned money spent on coloring your hair doesn’t go to waste. Each of our shampoo bars are free from sulfates and harsh cleansers like SLS and SLES that would lift the hair cuticle and pull off or change the color you’ve applied. Our shampoo bars are made with an ideal pH of 5.5 to help close the cuticle to make sure your color vibrancy is preserved for longer. With a gentle formula that locks in color and prevents fading, it's the perfect choice for maintaining your gorgeous locks!
