SULFATE 4% BODY AND HAIR CLEANSER
The first step in The Ordinary hair line’s hair care routine is a gentle cleanser for the skin and body. It promises to be effective and non-aggressive even on colored hair and treated. Fragrance-free and with vitamin E, the formula also contains SLES-2, a 4% fully biodegradable and delicate sulfate, which works by eliminating impurities, respecting the integrity of the skin and improving the hydration of the skin after use.

THE ORDINARY SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER OPINIONS
I have long, fine hair, which has become fine with time, colors and the use of straighteners. Finding suitable products that do not weigh them down is always tiring. Most of the time I feel heavy hair the day after washing. With dry shampoo I only make the situation worse: so come on, another round, another shampoo! With new The Ordinary hair products, I may have found mine perfect match.
The shampoo is very light, but deeply cleanses both the scalp and the hair, removing all product residues present on the hair. It makes quite a full-bodied lather and a knob is enough for a deep wash. Also excellent used alone, it gives the best combined with The Ordinary conditioner of the same line. A conditioner moisturizing hold the pose only 1 minute, with a rich, full-bodied texture that leaves hair soft and shiny. By using both products together, I can keep the style for an extra day, before the next wash. My hair is lighter and shinier for longer than when I use other hair products. A’winning combinationespecially for those with me thin hair!
THE ORDINARY SERUM REVIEWS
I’m not a big fan of leave-in products that I apply daily to the scalp. Having thin hair, he tends to weigh it down quickly, leaving it dull. Ordinary serum, on the whole, turns out quite light: formulated to restore its natural hydration to the scalp, it helps to solve the problems of dry dandruff. I tried it at a time when I often felt a bothersome itching to the head, because of the use of products that are a little aggressive and which do not suit me. In my experience and for my hair type, it tends to weigh it down slightly, which makes me wash it more often. But it definitely gives a pleasant feeling of freshness, totally eliminating itching. An excellent ally to use when needed, to solve this type of problem!
