Are you tired of shampoo leaving your hair Dry, Oily or Lifeless? We were too, and ManeLine Shampoo Alternative was born. Using as few as 8 Natural, Plant-Based ingredients, our Non-Foaming blends leave your hair and scalp soft, healthy and manageable with less effort required.
Our products are made in house daily with absolutely no animal testing. We trace our ingredients to the actual producers and verify the same along the way.
Below are brief descriptions of our Fragrance Oil (FO) and Essential Oil (EO) fragrance offerings. Essential oils provide a 100% natural product. Fragrance Oils are proprietary and while skin/hair safe, may not be 100% natural. You can fragrance the product yourself using any skin/hair safe Essential or Fragrance oil. We recommend you start at 10 drops, shake well and smell, adding more as necessary. If you would like a fragrance not listed (or one previously offered), just let us know in the notes, chat or email and we will do our best to accommodate. Please note, any descriptions of use/benefit are traditional uses and not evaluated by the FDA.

ManeLine Shampoo Alternative is available for use in its natural unfragranced form. The natural fragrance of our Shampoo Alternative is honestly not incredibly pleasant. It has a fairly sharp vinegary fragrance.
Our ingredients and why we use them:
Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice: Aloe juice is an excellent natural moisturizer for hair and scalp. Very few people have negative reactions to Aloe, making it one of the best liquids we could use.
Sapindus Mukorossi Berries: Nature's very own soap from a tree! These natural nuts yield a pH neutral gentle cleanser without huge amounts of foam.
Acacai Concinna (Shikakai) Nut Powder: Shikakai powder is a natural hair cleanser dating back thousands of years.
Lactobacillus Ferment (Natural Preservative): Lactobacillus Ferment is a natural preservative, keeping your product fresh and healthy for use.
Glycerin: Glycerin is a natural humectant, used to keep hair from drying and becoming brittle.
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein: Hydrolyzed Soy Protein is a protein rich hair conditioner containing multiple amino acids which can improve hair strength.
Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey*: Honeyquat is a natural conditioner which is commonly used in ethnic and African hair to enhance curls and prevent dryness. (only used in African / dreadlock blends)
Emblica officinalis (Amla) Fruit Powder: Amla powder has excellent conditioning qualities and also functions as a natural dye fixer.
Potassium Sorbate: Potassium Sorbate is a natural compound, though commercially produced in basically every instance. It is added to our Shampoo Alternative in very small quantities to prevent fermentation and reaction from fragrances. Fun fact! Potassium Sorbate is most often used in wine to halt fermentation at a given point.
Xanthan Gum: Food grade Xanthan Gum is added to our Shampoo Alternative as a thickening agent.
