Index Type 1 is an All In One hair wash, co-wash, hair conditioner, primer, curl creme and styling creme created to simplify your haircare routine while maintaining healthy hair and scalp.
Co-washing (conditioner washing) is the process of using a product that not only cleanses the hair, but also moisturizes and nourishes it. It’s an All In One way to replace your shampoo & conditioner with just one product, simplifying your haircare routine! What are the benefits of using a co-wash vs. shampoo? Detergent-free co-washing cleanses and nourishes your hair without stripping the natural oils from your hair and scalp which leaves you with shinier, smoother and healthier hair, overall.
When it comes to curly hair, the practice of co-washing helps define the curls, detangles the curls and keeps them fresh. We want the best for our clients so Index is cruelty-free and free of detergents, sulfates and parabens and scented with the mild and natural oil from sweet oranges.
Have you ever wanted to give your hair a little boost before you actually styled it with heat and other products? That’s exactly what our Type 1 can be used for! All you have to do is add a dollop of our Type 1 formula to the reusable, glass Index spray bottle, give it a good shake and voila! That’s all it takes to get your primer set up. Using a primer on your hair not only prepares it for the heat it’s about to endure but also sets you up for a great hair day, protecting it against humidity and frizziness, while conditioning and giving you better hold and shine!
On top of being a really great hair primer, Type 1 can also be applied as a curl spray to bring your stunning curls to life. Curls are so unique for each person and sometimes they need a little help to enhance their natural charm.
