Grey Hair Q&A

Which product is best for gray hair?
All of our shampoo and conditioner bars are built to increase the strength and health of your hair and are made with fermented Longsheng rice water. All the ingredients we use in all of our bars should produce great results for your hair, even if we can't guarantee that your graying will go away.

However, finding the best shampoo and conditioner bar depends on your scalp type. If you feel your scalp type is more oily, then we recommend using the Citrus Yao bars because citrus breaks down oil the best. If your scalp is dry, we recommend the Terrace Garden, Hidden Waterfall or Native Essence bars. If you feel it’s normal and doesn’t really lean too much to one way or the other, then you would be fine using any of the bars. 💕 Let us know if you have any other questions!

Can I use even if my hair is already gray/white?
We have manycustomers with all gray or all white hair who report using our bars to help strengthen, nourish and brighten their hair.

Will this change my gray hair back to its original color?
Our shampoo and conditioner bars are built to increase the strength and health of your hair. Results are going to vary from person-to-person, but we have seen anecdotal, customer experiences that have seen less graying and colored new growth. The ingredients we use in our bars should produce great results for your hair, even if we can't guarantee that your graying will go away. We are currently conducting studies to further strengthen our claims. Many of our individual ingredients have 3rd party, clinical studies backing their performance already. See more on inositol, panthenol, and hydrolyzed rice protein.

The Red Yao women, who are the inspiration behind our brand and products, have been using Longsheng rice for centuries to strengthen their hair and prevent graying. The Red Yao women are known all across the world for their long, jet-black, flawless hair that lasts well into their 80's without any sign of graying. Here is a short video about our story and where this product comes from https://youtu.be/mwJhzwzO10s.

Will this prevent grays?
We don't claim that our products will prevent or reverse gray hair. What we are claiming in this post is that (1) the Red Yao have been washing their hair with Longsheng Rice water for nearly 2,000 years. Their hair is gray free well into their 80s. (2) Now, this is where people come in and say genetics, diet, etc. These things can contribute, however, rice protein, inositol (a byproduct of fermented rice), and panthenol (a byproduct of fermented rice) all have dozens of clinical studies online backing their nourishing properties. It is interesting to note that males of this tribe do not have gray-free hair, and do not normally wash their hair with rice water. 😊
