After a few months I think I finally understood how to use my products to work for me- but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing the shampoo and conditioner. For reference I have thick Asian hair. The scalp detox and dry shampoo was awesome and highly recommend using. However, The shampoo and conditioner for the amount needed for my hair was not worth the cost associated. I’ve watched the instructions and the founder used a tiny dollop of shampoo and conditioner - but I understand for her hair (thin, light bodied) that that would be enough. When going by her instructions I felt like my hair was unwashed and my hair would get so webby it was really hard to look at my hair - after going a little bit more liberal with the amount, I finally felt like it was getting washed and nurtured. But clearly with the liberal amount, I went through a full-sized bottle within two months. The cost wasn’t worth the amount for me even though I finally learned how to enjoy the shampoo + conditioner - which is unfortunate. If you’re hair is on the thinner side, I would recommend, because it really is a luxurious experience, but otherwise, I would recommend trying other brands.

The Cold Processed Scalp Detox is innovative and worth the money. However, I found the Shampoo and Conditioner quality and bottling to not be worthwhile. The pumps that arrived didn't really function well. They screwed on a bit off-centered and just looked cheap. The pumps were also difficult to get all of the product out of the small containers. I ended up just having to remove the pump and keep the container upside down to make sure that could use up every last bit of product.

Feedback

New bottle design. It would work so much nicer as a squeeze tube with a bottom opening.

I didn't realize that my hair products weren't working for me until I read about Act + Acre and thought "oh, there's something that can do that???" My scalp and hair is so much happier after using the scalp detox, cleanse, and conditioner for a year. They also have great content and education and I have a better understanding of my scalp/hair health.

Feedback

More information on sustainability and using more sustainable packaging. I also went to the NYC brick and mortar a couple times during the posted business hours and it was just...closed. That was disappointing because I was really excited to go in person and I needed more products.

I use the scalp detox oil which smells amazing, but I can't say that it's really effective as there are still leftover flaky patches when I use them on my husband. Great sensorial experience though.
