On using Hanz de Fuko men’s shampoo
It’s not every day you decide to use organic, all-natural shampoo, so when Nick decided to try Hanz de Fuko’s products, I thought the shampoo smelled so good (well, obviously from smelling his hair, hahaha), so I tried it over my Palmolive-whatever-it-was.
The fact that all their hair products use natural plant extracts and smelled so good was very appealing. I have heard all too much about sodium lauryl sulfate in most shampoos being bad for your scalp, too.
The main issues I have had with my hair – because I colour/dye it at least three times a year – include dry split ends and dandruff. My dandruff used to be very bad until I decided to remedy the issue by using the ‘no-poo’ method, ie. skipping the shampoo and using only conditioner. I have always used conditioner, but I read that conditioner does just as good a job of cleaning as shampoo does, without drying out your scalp. Of course you get the added benefit of soft hair too.
I borrowed Nick’s shampoo and conditioner one time to try it out.
I was hesitant to go back to using shampoo but I figured that if Hanz de Fuko had natural shampoo, it couldn’t possibly have been worse.
I have been using the shampoo and conditioner for at least a few months. It claims to reduce dandruff, and apart from a few spots, I can say that my head is no longer snowing (yeah, gross, I know). The shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair very soft and nicely scented. I only wash my hair every few days because it doesn’t get greasy or dirty, but I think my dry split ends need separate special treatment.
I remember looking at Hanz de Fuko’s website and reading their About page. Nothing stuck out about whether their products were specifically for men, although their branding seems to suggest this is the case. Although their hair products seem to be marketed at men, I’m sure girls with short hair or girls who like to tease or spike their hair would find their natural products appealing. I can’t locate the article now but I remember doing an internet search and finding out that a girl had tried the shampoo and conditioner too.
I decided that there’s nothing wrong with using men’s hair products. It doesn’t matter if a product is marketed at a certain gender – if it works for you, then there’s no problem. I like Hanz de Fuko’s shampoo and conditioner. :)
