Why We Need Active Ingredients in Hair Care

The Benefits of Coconut

Coconut oil has been proven to leave hair softer and shinier, promote healthier hair growth and, thanks to its anti-microbial properties, soothe an irritated scalp. We use coconut oil in our UV Protection complex, helping colored hair remain vibrant longer, as well as preventing the damage strands can sustain from UV exposure.

The Benefits of Honey

This natural ingredient has myriad benefits: It softens coarse hair, hydrates fine strands without weighing them down, has anti-microbial properties to help keep the scalp healthy—and imparts instant shine to the hair, akin to lip-gloss for your locks.

The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

A natural humectant popular in skin moisturizers, Hyaluronic Acid has been heralded for how effectively —and quickly— it treats dehydrated skin. We now know that it can provide similar moisturizing benefits to dry hair too. Hyaluronic acid works in two ways: First, it draws water from the air to quench thirsty hair, then it holds onto that moisture, preventing additional water loss. This therapeutic one-two punch can help boost shine, make hair supple and more elastic, and prevent frizz. Hyaluronic Acid is utilized at Prose in conjunction with Collagen and Lilac as part of our Fiber Repair complex. This trio forms a light film around each strand to protect and prevent damage, as well as to give hair a chance to repair itself.

The Benefits of Argan Oil

Well-known as a light, non-greasy frizz-fighter, Argan Oil is part of Prose’s Hair Nourishment complex (other oils in this blend include Jojoba and Sacha Yushi). As a key part of this complex, Argan Oil helps to hydrate, boost shine and prevent split ends.

  1. hello… I need a formula that is soy and propylene glycol free as both ingredients are guaranteed to bother my scalp. I’m looking for something that will also increase volume as i’ve been losing a lot of hair.

    1. Hi JJ! Unfortunately at the moment we are not able to accommodate soy-free formulas. However, we’ve shared your feedback with our team and it is something we hope to be able to offer in the future. If you have any questions, just let us know.

  2. I HAVE WHITE HAIR AND HAVE TAKEN YOUR SURVEY AND YOU HAVE PICKED OUT A FORMULA, BUT YOU DID NOT ASK ABOUT WHITE HAIR. I have purchased so many different PRODUCTS that HAVE TURNed MY HAIR YELLOW OR OTHER NASTY SHADES. A HAIRDRESSER TOLD ME MY HAIR IS HOLLOW AND PICKS UP EVERYTHING. HOW DO I KNOW THE FORMULA YOU HAVE CReated for ME WONT CAUSE YELLOWING or other Hues.

    1. Although we don’t ask about silver hair within your consultation, our products can definitely be formulated to help prevent yellowing. Just let us know when you place your order. Our team of chemists will include our active ingredients to protect your natural hair color ✨
