RIO CABELLO® Professional Care - Step 1 Clarifying Shampoo Pre-Treatment (32 fl oz)
It's time to start cleaning like you mean it. Time to amp up the "squeak" in your squeaky-clean. Rio Cabello Clarifying Shampoo is not for the lighthearted - this is serious hair-straightening preparation business.
Rio Cabello® Clarifying Shampoo is a pre-treatment Magic Wand of Wonderful. Our deep cleansing formulation is specifically designed to prepare the hair for color services (highlights, lowlights, etc.) and straightening services including the Rio Cabello Keratin Professional Smoothing System. In addition, it thoroughly cleanses hair, removes build-up and impurities and restores the hair's natural pH delivering optimal results for the longest lasting color and smoothing results possible. Suffice it to say, cleaning hair has never been this intense - or smelled so good.
Note: Rio Cabello® Clarifying Shampoo is not a daily shampoo. It is a required pre-treatment for our outstanding Professional Keratin Smoothing System. If your hair wants to be nurtured with hydration and exotic oils try our Keratin Hydrating Shampoo which is perfect for daily use.
For hair types: Curly, Wavy, Straight, Frizzy, Fine, Medium, Coarse
Paraben Free: According to the CDC, there is evidence showing absorption of Parabens through the skin into the body. While the verdict is not out yet, Parabens also have the ability to mimic the hormone estrogen and are linked to tumors. We're not taking any chances. All Rio Cabello products are 100% Paraben Free.
No Sodium Chloride: Sodium Chloride (table salt) is used in some shampoos as a thickening agent. It contributes to eye irritation and may cause dry and itchy scalp causing the hair to become brittle and more prone to loss.
An experiment conducted in the Journal of Pharmacology & Pharmacy found that sodium chloride was very effective at combating head lice because it dries out the hair and scalp so well.
All Rio Cabello products are 100% Sodium Chloride Free.
No Harsh Alcohols: Rio Cabello contains long-chain alcohols which are considered good. Because they have more Carbon in their molecules than short-chain alcohols, they become "fatty" alcohols which maintain moisture and cause the hair to feel soft. These molecules are not absorbed because of their size, so they remain on the outside and flatten the hair cuticles, reducing frizz and detangling your hair.
On the other hand, Isopropyl and Propyl alcohols have a very drying effect on the hair. Again, dryness can cause a whole lot of issues including irritation, lack of nourishment, and eventually proneness to hair loss, frizz, and hair damage. These are short-chain alcohols found in a lot of hair products (not in Rio Cabello).
How to Use: Use enough Clarifying Shampoo to provide a nice glide and slip through the hair. Work the product through the hair, massaging the scalp vigorously – this increases circulation and helps promote hair growth. Rinse. Repeat if necessary to ensure hair is squeaky-clean. You are now ready to proceed with the Rio Cabello Professional Keratin Smoothing System.
Warning: Avoid contact with eyes, if contact occurs rinse thoroughly with water.
