Ginger. An unassuming household spice one would think; great to strengthen up a cup of tea, or flavour a good stir fry. For those more familiar with home-remedies, its medicinal value in the treatment of indigestion and even the soothing of physical burns is fairly well-known.
What if we told you that ginger also holds the flag in the fight against dandruff? Yes, dandruff.
Always quick to tap into an organic beauty secret, The Body Shop has harnessed the natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of this the humble root, to create a punchy -yet soothing- formula that will effectively cleanse your roots.
The Body Shop’s Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is a blend of potent ginger extract from here in Sri Lanka, and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia; a delicious mix that helps reduce dandruff-causing bacteria, fights flakes, and soothes irritation. With anti-flake relief will also come reduced redness and itching, and your once irritated scalp will also be simultaneously moisturised and stimulated for hair growth.
To incorporate this into your haircare regime, just apply onto your scalp in the shower, leave it to work its magic for 5-10 minutes, and then rinse off. The wonder product is as effective as it is fragrant, and quick to show results -especially when paired with the Ginger anti-Dandruff Conditioner.
If your haircare is all in favour of ginger, your body care routine is sure to agree. Experience the power of ginger from head-to-toe with products from The Body Shop’s fragrantly fizzy and zingy limited edition Totally Tangled range: Ginger Body Yogurt, Body Butter, Shower Gel, Body Scrub and Hand Wash. Always at the forefront of ethical trade and sustainable business, the 100% vegan products are all enriched with ginger root extract from India and Community Trade ingredients from across the globe.
