FAQ


BOTANIST means “plant scientist”.
At BOTANIST, we focus on conditioning the hair and skin with the blessing of plants.
We aim to create products that are friendly to the environment as well as to our hair.

[Moist] is recommended to those who:

  • have thick, tough hair
  • have damaged hair and are concerned about dry, rough hair
  • wish to reduce hair volume from the roots.
  • wish for their hair to stay sleek all the way to the tips

————————————–
[Smooth] is recommended to those who:

  • desire to add volume to their hair from the roots
  • have fine or soft hair that becomes tangled easily
  • wish to run their fingers smoothly through their hair

For others who find [Moist] is too moisturizing, while [Smooth] is not enough, a combination use of [Moist] shampoo and [Smooth] treatment is advisable.

BOTANIST products have high moisture-retention properties and combine many repairing elements. When you have healthy hair, some oiliness may be experienced.
Excessive application may also be a contributing factor. Even with a little amount, there should be sufficient conditioning effect. Please try adjusting the amount of use.

When applying the treatment, start from halfway down your hair and continue to the hair ends. Please avoid direct application to the scalp or hair roots. After the application, massage your hair, then rinse thoroughly.

The expiration period is 3 years when unopened.

As the treatment is not a dedicated shampoo for recently colored hair use, color-fading inhibiting effect is not guaranteed. The soap ingredients in the shampoo are made of fatty acid similar to the natural sebum that lubricates the scalp, and many natural plant-derived, moisture-retaining factors are combined in the treatment.

Botanical Hair Oil contains a color fading inhibitor, so it is recommended for post-hair coloring use.

BOTANIST uses naturally derived ingredients.
However, whether suitable or unsuitable, allergic reactions and such depend on the person and other their conditions included.

Generally, children, infants are more susceptible to allergies than adults so that it is difficult to judge if use of the item is appropriate. This also goes to babies who have delicate skin.

If you are concerned, we recommend seeking medical advice prior to use. And should you have any allergic reaction to products, please avoid using the product further.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women can use BOTANIST without any problem.
However, the skin can become sensitive during those times. If any abnormality arises after use, please terminate use of the product.

Scalp treatment is targeting to develop scalp to a healthy and moisturized condition. While it has less effect of moisturizing hair than Smooth, you can apply it to the scalp directly due to the gentle scalp-friendly formula. Massaging scalp not only helps a good circulation of blood flow but also is beneficial for promoting absorption of the treatment.
If treating dry hair is prioritized issue, we recommend use of different variants together such as Scalp shampoo with Smooth treatment. Combining variants helps you having the ideal result.
