DESCRIPTION

WASH
The best proactive shampoo for aging hair, Wash contains The Arey Complex, our patent-pending, science-backed combination of antioxidants and a clinically-efficacious peptide to slow and re-pigment grey hair while also delivering thicker, fuller, healthier hair.

SMOOTH
Our nourishing and clean conditioner Smooth includes antioxidants and extracts that work to retain moisture inside the hair strand and leave a conditioning barrier on the exterior.

WAIT A SEC™
Our gentle non-aerosol powder dry shampoo adds volume and refreshes hair without leaving hair feeling weighed down. Wait A Sec is formulated for all hair types with a subtle tint that won't leave a white residue, and includes our signature all-natural fragrance of cedar and sage to help even lived-in hair smell refreshed.

100% natural fragrance from cedar and sage. Free of Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Synthetic Fragrance, Polyethylene Glycol, Formaldehyde and Dyes.

USAGE

WASH
Wet hair and apply a liberal amount to hair and scalp, massaging into a rich lather. Allow lather to remain on the scalp for several minutes. Rinse hair well and follow with Arey Smooth conditioner for best results.

SMOOTH
Following Arey Wash Shampoo, apply from mid-shaft to ends of hair. Rinse immediately or leave on longer for a deeper conditioning experience.

Opting in to Auto-Replenish is the best way to maintain lasting results. If you wash your hair every 1-2 days, we recommend signing up for a 30 day auto-replenish plan. If you wash every 2-4 days, a 60 day frequency would be right for you.

    No weird smell

    Most dry shampoos have an overpowering smell or a weird feeling to it. This works great for my hair and doesn’t give me a headache with a strong smell. It also doesn’t feel like it leaves a buildup, which other brands do.

    nice shampoo

    Hard to know if this is slowing grey progression or not, but my grays seem fairly stable so I'm happy about that. Otherwise I like the shampoo and conditioner in general--cleans hair with no residue. Smell is nice.

    Hi Pamela, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear your grey is stabilizing and enjoying Wash and Smooth. You may want to consider adding in Not Today, Grey and/or To The Root in order to get daily application to help with repigmentation.
