Milk_shake is one of the most trendy brands in the 2021 haircare game – and for good reason! The brand has exploded in popularity since its first arrival to the market in 1999 and although you might not have heard much about them as a brand or their products until now – we want to change that!
Milk_shake (yes, you read that right – the brand is spelled milk_shake, not Milkshake!) is dedicated to creating step-by-step solutions for all hair types. They strive to create natural, organic products with a recognition of the environmental impact their manufacturing and products have on the world. This is why they never test on animals, and they avoid the use of parabens, sulphates, and sodium chlorides. Their products are made in the land of wine and pasta – Italy! While milk_shake products may smell good enough to eat or drink – we do not recommend trying to do so, keep them for your hair! With nature at the forefront of their company practices, they opt for sustainable components and packaging while never slacking on quality. Their aluminum cans are made from permanent resources and can be recycled indefinitely, their plastic bottles and tubes are made from 50% recycled plastic and are completely biodegradable thanks to a special additive, and their dispensers and caps can be recycled – and may even end up being used to make new milk_shake bottles. With visually appealing packaging and delicious scents, their environmentally friendly products will take you on a journey to visibly healthy hair.
Milk_shake currently has two main product lines – their core hair care line that features some of their bestsellers such as Incredible Milk and Silver Shine Shampoo (don’t worry, we will explain more about these soon!) and their Lifestyling product line that offers styling solutions for all hair types, allowing you to create amazing looks from start to finish.
Milk_shake – sounds like something you crave on a hot day right!? But what does that have to do with hair care? One key ingredient in milk_shake products is milk protein. Milk proteins have a highly conditioning effect on the hairs structure and increase volume, elasticity and colour retention while repairing damage. Another prominent ingredient in their hair care products is Integrity 41. While this doesn’t sound like an ingredient you may have heard before, that’s because its very unique! It’s composed of hydroglycolic sunflower extract which is very rich in antioxidant polyphenols. What is a polyphenol you may ask? They are simply a range of natural compounds that we get through plant-based products, and are found in everyday foods such as berries, whole grains, peppers, seeds and apples. They are extremely beneficial towards your health, or in this case, your hair health! Integrity 41 is a powerhouse for hair care and milk_shake takes advantage of this – but guess who truly benefits…. Yo
There are so many products to discuss, it would soon turn into a novel - so instead we will focus on introducing a few of their bestsellers – being bestsellers for a reason.
