Why we stand behind it

SHAZ & KIKS Back to Your Roots Scalp + Hair Prewash for Thin, Flat to Normal Hair works to nourish and strengthen your entire hair ecosystem including follicles, scalp and strands. This hair treatment mask is designed to be used as step one in your hair routine, before you start your wash routine to prep and nourish hair and scalp.

Additionally, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ingredients including neem and turmeric oils help to improve scalp dryness and sensitivities, while helping to increase blood circulation in the scalp.

What is an undertone?

An undertone is the color beneath the surface of your skin, which never changes (even with a tan). There are three types of undertones:


I see red or pink undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin burns easily, but barely tans.
My skin looks better in silver jewelry than gold.


I see both pink and yellow undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin sometimes burns and sometimes tans.
My skin looks good in both gold and silver jewelry.


I see yellow or golden undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin rarely burns, but tans easily.
My skin looks better in gold jewelry than silver.

Scoop quarter-sized amounts onto fingertips and massage into scalp. Depending on hair density, you should be able to cover your whole scalp with 2-5 scoops.

Using the prewash, gently massage it into your scalp using the pads of your fingertips. Make sure to press down the center of your scalp, activating marma points (energy points). This helps increase blood circulation, activate brain lymphatic drainage, and allows the nutrients in the prewash, along with oxygen, to absorb optimally into the hair follicles and scalp skin.

Work the prewash through the strands, and take 1-2 more scoops to make sure strands are evenly coated (but not drenched) with the prewash mask.

Allow the prewash to soak in for at least 10 minutes (you can leave it on as long as you want), and then start your wash routine with shampoo and conditioner. *If you have fine hair, we recommend skipping out on traditional conditioner because the prewash does have conditioning ingredients, and adding traditional conditioner mayweigh it down
