Innersense beauty: For zero waste makeup fans

Your natural haircare journey starts with Innersense! This California-based, plastic-neutral brand is one of the early pioneers of clean, luxury haircare powered by organic chemistry. Expect high-quality formulas, free from parabens, silicones, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and other questionable ingredients.

Despite Innersense hair products boasting natural formulas, there’s no compromise on performance: it rivals any salon brand worth its salt. Shiny hair, a healthy scalp and dreamily-scented tresses - what more could your head want? Read on to explore this Allure Best-of-Beauty award-winner in-depth, find out if Innersense products are Curly Girl approved and where to start if you’re new to natural haircare.

 

the journey begins with the Innersense Detox Hair Mask

Switching to organic haircare can be a bit tricky, particularly if your mane is used to harsher ingredients. But whether you're new to natural hair care or just want to give your scalp a good clean to remove product build up, reach for the Detox Hair Mask. This clarifying treatment uses charcoal, kaolin clay and certified organic white vinegar to draw microparticles to the surface without stripping the hair of its natural oils. It will leave your hair clean, residue-free and smelling like a vanilla latte.

Now particularly if you have thick hair, you might be wondering how to use a hair mask. Does it go only on the scalp? Does it matter if my hair gets most of it? Well, for this particular product, the product should be applied on damp hair, and then gently worked from root to tip. Basically, it’s designed to remove unwanted build up from nasties like silicones, waxes and microplastics. Depending on your hair type, you might need a couple more applications before your tresses are sufficiently detoxed and ready to accept pure, organic care. I think of my own hair that I’ve routinely fried, dyed, bleached and doused in eye-watering chemicals for “mangeability” which was fleeting, at best. I needed about 3 uses before I made the switch to pure hair products!

 

AND THEN continues with your perfect iNNERSENSE HAIRBATH & CONDITIONER

Which one is right for you? To help you decide which type of Innersense conditioner and Hairbath are right for you, there's a really useful quiz on the brand’s website. Kanvas Beauty also sells sample sizes of around 59ml as well as the Innersense Travel Trio Collections, so you can try before you buy.

As a rough guide, check out the table below:

Innersense Hydrating Cream Conditioner

TIP: In our experience, Innersense shampoos take a lot of water for optimal performance. This means, don’t apply it straight from the bottle. Instead, pour a coin-size into your palm, and lather generously with water before applying on your roots and massaging to the tip. You can also lather it in a small jug, and pour the diluted formula on your hair. To be frank, we wouldn’t recommend using any shampoo directly onto the scalp, because they tend to be high pH and dry out the scalp. The unintended upside is that your product lasts a lot longer!

 

innersense + curly hair: How does it rate?

Is Innersense Curly Girl Method approved? It sure is! A cursory glance at CurlScan.com shows no less than 15 out of a total of the brand’s 18 products get the tick of approval. This includes the Innersense Quiet Calm Curl Control, Leave-In Conditioner and Innersense I Create Waves.

 

The Innersense Curl Control product is essentially a styling cream designed to define and separate curls, eliminate frizz and smooth textured hair. It does all this without stickiness, and without weighing down your curls into an oily mess. For some impressive results, work two coin-sized amounts through medium-length and loose curls while it’s still wet after shampooing and conditioning. You can add a bit of Innersense I Create Hold afterwards, or else go straight to using a diffuser for about 10-15 minutes for beautiful definition.

For 4C hair, the same method also works. For silkier definition, try using the Innersense Hydrating Hair Mask after conditioning for about 15 minutes, before proceeding to styling. Don’t just take our word for it – check out this glowing review by the lovely Lauren Murray of Naturally Curly, who tried the Innersense detox and styling products on her ‘fro.

Tip: When you’re on the road, pop all your travel-sized goodies in the Innersense Cosmetics Bags – which will stop your haircare from redecorating the inside of your handbag.

 

Which innersense styling products are right for you?

While the right shampoo and conditioner gets your hair health for it needs to be, the right styling products will enhance its appearance, protect your ‘do and prolong your hair’s condition between washes. And luckily, there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to clean styling and aftercare. See below for your at-a-glance guide:

 

the fast facts

Q: Is Innersense all natural?
A: While there’s no universal definition of what constitutes ‘natural’ hair care, Innersense has some of the cleanest formulas we’ve seen and has not been called out for using any questionable ingredients.  It’s committed to formulating haircare without the use of no parabens, silicones, sulfates or synthetic fragrances. A big plus is that all of their products are rated “zero” (i.e. the cleanest of the clean) on the Think Dirty App. Note, Innersense is also cruelty-free and the majority of its products are vegan-friendly.

Q: Who owns Innersense?
A: Innersense’s journey started in 2005 by Greg and Joanne Starkman, when they identified a gap in the market for clean, pure, organic and non-toxic professional quality hair care products. Today, Innersense can be found all over the world, including Australia – at Kanvas Beauty! Read more about their story here.

 

 

Q: Does I Create Volume have protein?
A: I Create Volume contains hydrolyzed rice protein. However, I Create Hold is now protein-free. And out of the Hairbaths and Conditions, the Pure range contains the most protein.

Q: Is Innersense environmentally friendly?
A: Absolutely. Innersense doesn’t use any unsustainable or environmentally harmful products. Here’s what else you should know: Innersense is Certified Carbon Neutral through Climate Neutral, a non-profit organization that helps companies measure and offset their carbon footprint. It has also partnered with Plastic Bank, which cleans up plastic waste to transform it into an economic resource for vulnerable communities. AND it’s Certified Plastic Neutral! This means for every organic hair care shampoo or conditioner purchased, Innersense removes that same amount of plastic from the environment.
