New from Hair By Sam McKnight are Lazy Girl Biodegradable Hair Cleanse Cloths (£17 for 20 cloths).  A fast, effective and fragrant ‘no wash’ solution for great hair on the go.  Legendary hairstylist Sam developed his innovative, first-of-their-kind biodegradable hair cleansing cloths to enable anyone to clean and refresh their hair instantly, easily and fast without reaching for the shampoo bottle and as an alternative to dry shampoo.

Sam says, “These cloths have been years in development. I often work with models who arrive at shows with hair that needs washing or has make-up in their hairline from the previous shows they have worked at. My hair team and I needed something that worked immediately to clean and refresh the hair without us starting from scratch so that we could style it for our show. Outside of the shows, I know how busy people are – there isn’t always time to wash and style their hair, so I wanted to offer an alternative that worked and worked fast. “

Formulated with velvet flower seed, honeysuckle and aloe leaf extracts that nourish and condition the hair and witch hazel, which gently removes grease, impurities and product build-up from the hairline, scalp and roots and cleans the hair. Each cloth is infused with Sam’s signature luxury hair fragrance which lingers beautifully in the hair after use. The wipes are made of tree pulp cellulose sourced from certified forestry regulators and are certified as compostable material.  Grown on marginal land that is unsuitable for food crops.  They biodegrade in six weeks and once composted are converted into pure water and CO2.  Vegan. 94% naturally derived ingredients.  Free from sulphates, parabens, soya, gluten, silicone, ceramides, phthalates and nuts.  Available now from sammcknight.
