Ancient Sunrise Zizyphus - Organic Shampoo Powder

Zizyphus Spina Christi is a desert plant. The leaves were powdered and used to wash hair before shampoo was available. It leaves hair clean, shiny, healthy, and well conditioned. It does not leave any color in the hair. If your hair has been chemically bleached, please test first, the results may be peculiar.

Mix Zizyphus Spina Christi with filtered or distilled water until it is a paste about as thick as yogurt. Section your hair, and apply the paste. Work the paste thoroughly into your hair. Once the paste has been massaged on the scalp and through the hair, rinse your hair completely with warm water. For damaged hair, leave the paste on for 10 minutes. 25 grams of Zizyphus will clean and condition your hair.

    • If you can't use any soap or detergent to wash your hair
    • Anyone having fine, limp hair and would like more thickness and texture
    • People whose hair needs extra protection from water or sun.

3 of 5 Heavy for fine hair August 24, 2023
Reviewer: Terry V from Tallapoosa, GA United States  
I've been looking for a shampoo/conditioner combo (separate or combined) for my fine (not thin) hair, that won't either dry it or weigh it down with over-conditioning.  After mixing the powder I wet my hair over the sink and worked in the paste thoroughly from the scalp to the ends, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes per the instructions.  I washed it out in the shower and did a final rinse with cold water, and it felt smooth and soft at first but after it dried it felt gummy and weighed down next to my scalp but still dry at the ends.  I used most of a 25g packet and have some left so I'll probably use the rest up next time, rinse it out sooner and apply extra conditioner to the ends.

5 of 5 My hair feels great again June 20, 2023
Reviewer: Mal from AR  
THIS is what I needed to get back the texture I loved before I stopped coloring with Henna/Indigo. I've got graying curly hair (2C or 3A, depending on who you ask). I've been using Zizyphus instead of shampoo/conditioner about 2 times a week. It does seem to rinse out best by immersing my hair the tub. In the shower, though, I use a wide-tooth comb with the final rinse, and that seems to work well for me. Plus,  I love how "Zizyphus" is the absolute perfect, frothy word to describe what this does when you mix it. ;)

5 of 5 Sift, mix, sit and apply. Works great! November 13, 2019
Reviewer: Denice from Charlotte, NC United States  
This was my first time using ZSC.  I was a little concerned because videos showed people had trouble washing it out, loved the results once they did.  My hair is 4a-4c so I didn't want the hassle.  After doing some research this worked for me.  For those who complained about bits in their ZSC, sift it first.  Then add your liquid and mix.  Let it sit for a min of 30 minutes.  Should have a slight spongy texture afterwards.  Because I didn't order enough (was sure if I would have an allergic reaction), I mixed some aritha and shikakai powders and then added it to the ZSC after it had sat for the minimum time.  Wet my hair and left the mixture in my hair for about  15 minutes.  It rinsed out with no problems and my  hair felt great.  I followed up with a DC but that's what I do once a week anyway.  ZSC is great!  Will be ordering again.
