It's safe to say that the pandemic has made our self-sanitizing routines more intense. We all probably shower at least twice a day at this point, maybe more if you're the designated errand-runner. And while that's good news for your safety, it unfortunately doesn't set up the best situation for your hair.
Just like how your hands can start feeling raw from handwashing, your locks can end up dry and frizzy from over-shampooing. The same goes for when you spray your strands with alcohol, which also sucks moisture out of your hair. Thing is, even if we appreciate alcohol's bacteria-killing perks, we're not as happy about the way it takes our hair's natural oils with it. It's a tricky situation, but thankfully, Tokyo Posh has come up with the best solution to finally get us out of this pickle.
Last January 9, the brand popularly known for their hair extensions launched a hair sanitizer that's apparently the first of its kind in the world. It's the brainchild of their founder Denise Aquino, who like us, was looking for a gentler alternative to alcohol for easy cleaning.
After having no luck in her search, Denise decided to make one herself. She ended up developing the Hair Shield—an FDA-approved, alcohol-free formula that's clinically proven to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria on the hair. It has a fresh, citrusy scent to it as well, which actually reminds us of how our locks smell fresh off the salon!
And for all you curious cats, it's tea tree oil that takes alcohol's place in this product for fighting germs and bacteria. Meanwhile, its frizz-fighting and conditioning perks are partly thanks to aloe vera extract and hydrolyzed keratin. All that in a convenient spray bottle that sanitize our tresses on-the-go? Yes, please!
