Rather than strip the hair clean and then coat it (shampooing & conditioning), our goal is to try and keep your hair and head natural. This means we don't distort your pH balance and natural oils like a shampoo would. Unlike shampoos, our rinse doesn't have lathering detergents that suds up and dry out your head and hair. Unlike conditioner, it doesn't leave hair limp and frizzy. Instead, the rinse is packed with moisture and ingredients that soak into hair and scalp, cleansing hair while protecting its strength and texture.
Yes, our rinse is free of parabens and sulfates (in fact, it won't make any suds at all...). Our new version also has no silicones or added fragrance.
Our philosophy on choosing ingredients was to find the lightest, best performing ingredients to keep your hair and head in their natural balance. While we were initially skeptical of the scary names like 'alcohols,' we dug into it with more hair scientists. For some ingredients, we found that the strange names were the gentlest and best for your head, which is what matters most. Of course, there are no suds or lather, which are what damage hair. And so you know, all the Modern Mammals employees use the product too, so trust that we will only ever make it the best that we can. Here's the ingredient list:
Ingredients: Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, C13-15 Alkane, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Charcoal, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium EDTA.
Our bottles are made of hdpe plastic, one of the most easily recyclable and sustainably used plastics. Interested in a plastic-free option? Let us know!
The only animals involved in the making and testing of this product were a group of guys who volunteered to be our test subjects. It’s totally vegan.
We formulate, produce, and ship all in the USA
Obviously anyone is welcome to use the product. What we have found though is that men really love the product because it keeps a balance of their natural oils, which gives their hair a thick and moisturized feel, almost like a swim in the ocean. We’ve also found that guys are really drawn to our product's focus on scalp health, as well as our dedication to simplicity and convenience.
Some women do love the product and we have lots of female customers, but some dislike it, and the last thing we want is to disappoint customers with a bad hair result. So instead we focus our brand on men. If you're curious to try it, it makes your hair feel incredibly soft with a light bit of texture to it that gives it some weight and prevents flyaways.
We designed the brand for men because we felt like guys needed haircare products that spoke to them and their daily routines. Last but not least, it's not just about hair - guys need something they can be a part of in today's distributed world.
Do what works for you. Our typical customer is using modern mammals most days per week with nothing else, but we have some users shampooing once a week still. It depends on a lot of factors, like hair length, how much you sweat, and if you use a lot of styling product. We are sure you know more about your hair than we do, and we think you should figure out what works best for you.
We unfortunately can't accept returns or offer refunds but hey - if you're not happy then we're not happy. We would love to help you find the right product and also make our future products better fit your needs. Shoot us a message at email@example.com.
Not at the moment, shoot us a message though if you're international and trying to get some modern mammals!
