Today I found out the benefits of "why is algae used in shampoo and conditioners".

The algae acts as a natural binder and carrier. It's good to first massage in the product containing algae followed by a product containing protein. The algae helps to pull the protein into the hair where it can bind and strengthen it. Most algae products for hair will promote stronger hair and hair retention for noticeably long hair growth.

I only use shampoo once a month to exfoliate my scalp of buildup. I use the Crabtree & Evelyn La Source because it contains algae and does not contain cones. Because it does have sulfate I only use enough to scrub my scalp. On other days throughout the month I don't use shampoo just 2 conditioners for cowashing.
