Protecting Shampoo Uses and Benefits

  1. The Protecting Shampoo formula is designed to deep condition the hair in order to restore moisture to the strands. When your hair is feeling dry or dull, using the doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo can help restore moisture—leaving the hair looking and feeling soft, silky, and shiny.
  2. Due to the moisturizing properties of the Protecting Shampoo, it can help visibly reduce split ends. Whether you have split ends from too much styling, dying your hair, or any other damaging practices, the Protecting Shampoo can help visibly improve split ends and rejuvenate hair with a soft, shiny glow.
  3. doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo moisturizes and soothes hair as you wash in order to reduce tangling—particularly when combing. When the hair is tangled, it can incur a lot of damage from combing and styling. The Protecting Shampoo formula helps reduce the combing force for both dry and wet hair, which reduces styling damage.
  4. Whether you like to spruce up your look every so often with highlights, or you like to change your hair color every other month, we know that you want your hair color to last. Not only do you want to avoid excessive coloring, but it can also be expensive to visit the salon every month. Protecting Shampoo can help increase color retention in between visits to the salon for chemically treated hair. If you are trying to make your platinum blonde, brooding brunette, or stylish ombre last a little bit longer, try using the doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo to help preserve your color.
  5. With added moisture and smoothness, your hair will be better protected during the styling process after a good wash with the Protecting Shampoo. The natural, smoothing ingredients in the Protecting Shampoo help reduce any mechanical styling damage to hair, which can be helpful for those who dry, curl, and straighten their hair often. By moisturizing and fortifying hair strands, the Protecting Shampoo can also help shorten styling time—who wouldn’t love a few extra minutes to get ready in the morning?
  6. One of the benefits of using essential oils for hair is that they can provide significant cleansing properties depending on their chemical makeup. The Protecting Shampoo is designed to cleanse hair, hair follicles, and the scalp by removing residue that is often left behind by other styling products. For a truly clean feeling, choose the Protecting Shampoo to cleanse your entire head and leave your hair looking shiny and new.
  7. As mentioned, the doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo includes cleansers, botanicals, and essential oils—all of which are good for you and your hair. Other shampoos include toxins and chemicals, but you can rest easy knowing that your hair is protected and well taken care of with the use of botanical ingredients in the Protecting Shampoo.
  8. Oftentimes, hair can look a little frazzled, damaged, or unhealthy when it has been overexposed to blow dryers or sunlight. Luckily, the doTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo truly protects hair. It will keep your locks looking healthy even when exposed to the sun or constant blow drying.
