MY HAIR IS GETTING OILY, AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG?
Not to worry— this is a quick fix! Because Act+Acre products are quite concentrated, you may need to add a bit of water to the cleanse before applying it to your hair.
Use 1-2 pumps of the cleanse into your hand and add water to it. Rub this together in your hands and emulsify (the more bubbles the better!) before applying.
Rinse + repeat this process. You will notice a stronger lather during your second cleanse and a more weightless finish once complete :)
MY HAIR IS GETTING DRY, AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG?
Not to worry— this is normal! Because Act+Acre products are silicone-free, you may need to add a silicone-free hydrating mask once a week like the Restorative Hair Mask.
There is an initial transition period that can take 5-8 washes. If you feel you need more hydration with your daily wash. We recommend mixing a small amount of Restorative Hair Mask with the Conditioner.
