Product review: New Wash

My sister has been using this for a few months and gave me a bottle for Christmas. I’ve used it twice so far. My hair is fine and oily; I usually wash it every second day. I first used New Wash on Christmas night and have just washed my hair today, five days later. Normally I would have washed my hair twice between that!

New Wash contains no detergents, which regular shampoos have in abundance as we have a psychological barrier telling us our hair won’t be clean unless it foams when we wash it. Instead, New Wash is a blend of essential oils, alcohol, water and “natural cleansers” which do the same job. On their website, there are over 1500 five-star testimonials and a handful of one-star. Obviously, one product is not going to fit everyone, but that ratio is pretty impressive.

So, how do you use it?

Wet hair, apply a small amount to coat your hair (as you would conditioner), massage until your arms are sore, wash the rest of you, use your hands like squeegees to rinse your hair, and then rinse some more.

I found my hair felt less weighty, softer and bouncier after the very first use. My hair didn’t feel oily at all until about five days later, and even then I could have gone another day before it desperately needed a wash. My sister reports she only washes her hair once a week, her colour lasts longer and her styles work better. Her hair is thicker, doesn’t break as easily and is much easier to manage.

It’s expensive: $50 AUD and you can only get it online from the US. However you only use a small amount less frequently so the cost probably evens out (someone else can do the maths).

5/5 stars
