The Balancer solid shampoo bar from Unwrapped Life

The Problem:

Frizzy, wavy, fly-aways and breakage? Looking to balance and smooth ‘out of control’ tresses, and calm an angry scalp?

With turmeric and calendula, this hair bar duo not only normalizes hair follicle activity, it also promotes stronger hair by amping up collagen production and providing nutrition to your roots. Calming neroli, patchouli and rosewood essential oils, are uplifted with a hint of sweet orange, for a subtle and neutral scent. The oils also provide added hair and scalp benefits which include: dandruff prevention, cell rejuvenation, and hair growth stimulation.

Key Active Ingredients:

Turmeric - It's antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties work to soothe and treat dandruff, as well as calm many common skin conditions.  

Calendula - The flowers of calendula officianalis (also known as marigolds), are rich in minerals and anti-oxidants, and works to promote growth of stronger hair by increasing collagen production, and circulation in hair follicles.

Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein -  Extracted from quinoa, this protein acts as a natural and gentle coating that protects and nourishes the hair follicles from within. The nine essential amino acids quinoa contains act as natural strengtheners, protecting the hair shaft, and promoting hair growth.  

Neroli Essential Oil - Known for it's ability to regenerate skin cells and improve it's elasticity, this oil is also highly beneficial for the hair. Working to maintain the right oil balance in the skin (including the scalp), makes Neroli an excellent choice for all skin types. With its considerable overall healing and calming abilities (as well as antimicrobial properties and deep, intoxicating mix of citrus and floral aromas), it truly helps to balance the body and the mind.



The Detoxifier solid shampoo bar from Unwrapped Life

The Problem:

Blonde, gray, chemically-lightened hair? Tired of battling those unsightly brassy tones, caused by mineral deposits? Hair weighed-down with styling product residue, or environmental stresses?

To keep our locks fresh, our hair needs a deep clean too. With the cleansing and toning power of activated charcoal, and the moisturizing and conditioning properties of soothing aloe vera, hemp seed oil, and apricot seed, this duo is packed with deep cleaning and moisturizing properties. Suitable for those with an oilier scalp, to keep blonde tones fresh, or as a weekly treatment for those with dry hair to reduce product build-up, our Detoxifier solid shampoo bar and solid hair conditioner bar fight to keep brass out, and moisture and strength in!  

Key Active Ingredients:

Activated Charcoal - Absorbs scalp impurities and toxins, including excess sebum, thereby detoxifying it from the core. Product build-up and mineral deposits are no match for the cleansing and clarifying power of activated charcoal; however, it’s gentle enough to not further damage color-treated hair, and keeps blondes fresh and brass-free!

Aloe Vera - Contains proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp, while also acting as a great conditioner, leaving hair smooth and shiny.  Aloe vera has a chemical make-up similar to that of keratin and it rejuvenates the hair, giving it more elasticity and preventing further breakage. 



The Hydrator solid shampoo bar from Unwrapped Life

The Problem

Curly, dry, frizzy, damaged… hair feels like it needs a serious dose of hydration?  Itchy and dry scalp?

Just like our skin, that occasionally resembles scales, our hair needs moisture too. With colloidal oatmeal and amla oil, this hair bar duo works to treat scalp ailments, including: dryness, eczema, psoriasis, and rashes; and we all know that a healthy scalp makes for healthy hair! Chock full of vitamin B and the natural polysaccharide beta glucan, which acts as an emollient, the colloidal oatmeal delivers shine, moisture and damage repair, making your hair less brittle and more elastic with each use. Coupled with amla oil, which is used in Ayurvedic medicine to stimulate the hair follicle and encourage growth, these nourishing ingredients provide a perfect environment for long and healthy hair. This is a plus for curly and kinky hair types, which tend to be more prone to mechanical and manipulation damage.

Key Active Ingredients:

Colloidal Oatmeal - A true powerhouse!  Promotes elasticity which can prevent damage and breakage; a natural moisturizer containing vitamin B that penetrates the hair allowing moisture retention; and a natural anti-itch compound to calm common scalp conditions.

Amla Oil - An abundance of Vitamin C in this oil helps strengthen hair, and fight against breakage. Its natural calming properties help to treat itchy, dry scalp by moisturizing hair follicles and promoting growth.



The Fixer solid shampoo bar from Unwrapped Life

The Problem:

Over-processed, chemically-damaged, dry, brittle strands… went a little overboard at the salon, or the dreaded “I can do it myself” disaster (we’ve all done it!)… in need of some serious repair and replenishment?

With a combination of: soothing lavender, a touch of sweet basil, and the deep warmth of cedar wood essential oils, and super-power ingredients – stinging nettle extract and rosemary essential oil – you'll reduce scalp inflammation, neutralize free radical damage and oxidative stress, all while blocking DHT to help prevent hair loss. Rest assured, 'The Fixer' gives your hair all the TLC it needs.

Key Active Ingredients:

Stinging Nettle Extract - Loaded with antioxidants which can help repair damage from free radicals, and reduce scalp inflammation thereby promoting hair growth.

Cocoa Powder - Rich in magnesium, a mineral that helps to combat hair loss, cocoa powder is a nourishing and beneficial treat for your hair. Adding vibrancy, shine, and volume, giving stressed and damaged tresses an added boost of vitamins and protein.

Rosemary Essential Oil - Rosemary has the same free radical fighting power as goji berries - with an ORAC value of 11,070 - and can help stimulate hair growth. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows graying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp.



The Stimulator solid shampoo bar from Unwrapped Life

The Problem:

Greasy roots, dry ends… in a never-ending cycle of daily cleansing? Itchy, flaky and congested scalp? Thinning, hair-loss, post-partum, all sound familiar?

The French green clay in this hair bar duo acts like a sponge and literally 'drinks' oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your scalp and hair. Its toning action, coupled with the antioxidant and protective properties of matcha green tea, stimulates the scalp by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing your hair. 

Key Active Ingredients:

Matcha Green Tea - Packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, and EGCg, helping to strengthen hair and promote growth, by stimulating the function of the cells that control hair growth within the follicle and slowing the rate of cellular death from aging. Matcha green tea is 20 times more potent in its levels of antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries, and it is rich in minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. 

French Green Clay - French green clay contains trace minerals such as calcium, aluminum, magnesium, silica, phosphorous, copper and zinc. Its exceptional absorbent powers make it especially effective in drawing out impurities from the skin and hair; it naturally clarifies hair and gently works to remove stale sebum and scalp congestion without harsh chemicals, thereby promoting healthy hair growth. 

Rosehip Oil - Perfect for hydrating dry, flaky scalp conditions. This light weight oil also attracts and seals moisture into the hair, without the added weight and greasy appearance. High in vitamin A, C and E to help stimulate and preserve collagen production, which results in less hair breakage overall. Beta Carotene helps regulate your hair’s natural oil production, and to balance out over active, or under active, oil production.

Black Pepper Oil - Increases circulation to speed up hair growth, and is rich in antioxidants, including selenium, which works with vitamin E to reduce scalp inflammation. Lowering inflammation liberates constricted hair follicles, facilitating thicker hair growth. Also an effective antimicrobial that’s known to suppress yeast that causes dandruff, and its symptoms.
