Description

The ultimate cream shampoo for banishing itchy, irritated scalps and greasy hair. Our specially formulated non-foaming shampoo is designed to ensure prioritise quality over quantity within your haircare routine. Gone are the days of daily shampooing. Here are the days of low-maintenance, healthy hair and a cleansed, soothed scalp.

The Soothing Cleansing Cream is a non-foaming, sulfate-free shampoo. The reason for this is that the sulfates and chemicals that make most shampoos foam cause an increase in sebum production, causing a quicker build-up of grease (plus dandruff and irritation). This then leads to a vicious cycle of needing to wash your hair more frequently.

Enriched with fermented rice water and our unique pre and postbiotic complex to help support your scalp's microbiome, the gentle non-foaming Soothing Cleansing Cream soothes the scalp and leaves hair healthy and shiny.

Dermatologically tested. Suits all scalp types, even the most sensitive ones. Non-foaming, Sulfate-free shampoo.

Marie’s word, founder of Gallinée:
“The creamy shampoo that doesn’t foam but cleans to perfection and leaves my bleached fine hair all soft. It takes a bit of time to use it best, but the fermented rice water is a great ingredient to both soothe the scalp and reduce the sebum production.”

Key Ingredients

ULTRA GENTLE CLEANSING BASE: Our non-foaming cleansing base is derived from coconut and fruit sugars, 100% natural and non-ionic

LACTIC ACID: The gentlest of AHA. The lactic acid helps the skin to stay at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties. Gallinée uses a slow-release form to suit even sensitive skin.

PREBIOTICS: A mix of ultra-gentle fibres and sugars that feed your skin’s good bacteria and help support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad ones

FERMENTED RICE WATER: Rice water has been traditionally used as facial and hair wash for centuries by Asian women to improve skin complexion and hair condition. Nutritious rice water fermented by Saccharomyces is a favorable ingredient known to keep healthy and shiny hair.

MAFURA OIL: Known for its soothing properties, this oil is helps moisturise deeply. Its revitalising properties are very interesting for protective products. It is particularly suitable for delicate scalp.

TOCOPHEROL: A strong anti-oxidant, it protects the skin from external aggressions, and prevents ageing skin. This is the scientific name for vitamin E.

PHYSIOLOGICAL PH: All Gallinée products are made to match the optimal pH of the scalp and the microbiome.

WITHOUT: Doesn’t contain sulphates, soap, colourants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, microbeads, phenoxyethanol or methylisothiazolinone.

Usage

Apply the Soothing Cleansing Cream onto your roots and massage into the scalp and on very wet hair. Leave for up to two minutes then rinse.

We recommend alternating with your normal shampoo at first. Start using it once or twice a week instead of your normal shampoo, with the time you will notice hair needs washing less often.

RESULTS: the scalp is soothed, feelings or itchiness and irritation are reduced. Prevents scalp problems.

I've been cleansing with regular shampoo first and then the cream and it seems to work well this way - will hopefully be able to transition fully to the cream soon!

The cleansing cream calmed my scalp down and delicately cleansed my hair. It is a bit difficult to get used to the fact that it doesn't foam, so I probably used too much product, but I thinknit is well worth the price!

Je ne pourrais plus m'en passer. Je suis passée d'un lavage quotidien pour soulager mon cuir chevelu irrité à un lavage tous les trois à quatre jours, sans effet regraissant. Ce soin permet à mes boucles de rester hydratées, souples, mes cheveux sont brillants et en pleine santé. J'ai ajouté un embout applicateur à la place du bouchon fourni pour appliquer la crème directement aux endroits sensibles de mon cuir chevelu. Je l'applique aussi en masque cheveux sur cheveux humides et laisse poser des heures avant de rincer, résultat optimisé, cheveux hydratés ET nourris. Comme j'en ai toujours en réserve ;-) , je ne laisse qu'un tiers à la moitié du produit dans le flacon et j'ajoute de l'eau pour le liquéfier car la crème lavante est assez épaiss. Diluée, elle passe ainsi plus facilement dans mon embout applicateur pour aller directement aux racines. Il faut persévérer car les problèmes de cuir chevelu ne se règlent pas en trois shampoings ! Après plusieurs mois, j'affirme qu'il a apaisé mon problème à 90%.

Read moreI tried this cleanser on the red, flakey patches I have at the front of my hairline and the area was definitely less tight and itchy after my shower. I have only recently started having this issue(in last year) where the skin near my hairline would become red and inflamed with large sections of skin would just flake off en mass. I have been using the cleansing cream in conjunction with the scalp cream for almost two weeks and I notice that the size of the patches seems to have decreased along with the number of visible flakes. The formula is very soothing for both products and not heavily scented like other scalp products and I am really hopeful that it will get rid of the patches:)

Read moreI’ve only ever used conventional foaming shampoo before but was intrigued to try this as it mentioned smoothing frizzy hair. I’ve only used it once so far, I was concerned it would leave my hair greasy but not at all! It left my hair fresh and clean, even slightly softer, with the lovely delicate Gallinée scent. I can’t comment yet on prolonged use, but I am very hopeful it will have a beneficial effect!!

Read moreOriginally purchased all of Gallinee's hair products for my boyfriend that has been struggling with an irritated, dry and flaky scalp for about a year now and just after slowly incorporating these products into his routine over the past two weeks, we've noticed a drastic difference in his scalp. Less flakiness and the red, inflamed irritation had calmed significantly. I would highly recommend this for people struggling with painful and embarrassing scalp issues! I've even incorporated this routine into my own once every other week or so, and it keeps my hair free of build-up and super shiny! The only reason I'm not giving these products five stars is because of the scent. I'm very sensitive to scents/fragrances and it bummed me out to see Gallinee adding fragrance to their sensitive skin/hair products. It's not a very strong scent - light and clean, but it, unfortunately, bothers my allergies. I really want to try other Gallinee products but the scent is keeping me from trying them. Other than the fragrance, Gallinee products are definitely worth a try!

Read moreGallinée, so kindly, selected me to try this product which I have been using for a couple of weeks now. I like using a shower brush with it, I think it helps to distribute the cream more evenly and leaves my hair really clean and shiny. I was surprised at how well it helps to control the frizz even on air-dried hair.

    I like that this is a non-foaming cleansing milk. My hair also feels smoother and I don’t need to apply any conditioner. Scalp is soothed and not itchy.

    The fact that it doesn't foam is a real plus! The skin on my skull is much better since I have been using this product, I highly recommend it!

How to soothe an irritated scalp?

Introducing Gallinée Soothing Cleansing Cream to your hair routine is a great way to soothe your irritated scalp.
We exclude the surfactants and sulphates used in traditional shampoos and conditioners that make you wash your hair more often as these increase sebum production, which leads to an imbalance in your scalp. The scalp’s microbiome helps to regulate your sebum and any imbalance can lead to itchiness, redness and dandruff.
Using microbiome skincare that includes pre, post and probiotic complexes will help to keep your microbiome healthy and your scalp soothed.

How to improve skin microbiome on scalp?

Using hair products based on patented pre, post and probiotic skincare technology is the best way to improve your scalp’s microbiome. This helps to rebalance your scalp, soothe irritation and strengthen your skin’s protection against harmful bacteria.

Our Soothing Cleansing Cream includes a unique pre and postbiotic complex (enriched with fermented rice water) that supports your scalp’s microbiome by providing nourishment and purification.

How should I apply Gallinée Soothing Cleansing Cream?

You use our Soothing Cleansing Cream much like any other shampoo. Apply a small dollop onto your roots and massage into your scalp and then through your hair to the tips. Leave the cream in for two minutes then rinse off – simple!

Top tip: Our cream won’t foam up like normal shampoo, so it can be tempting to use more than you need. Try to use the same amount of cream as you would your normal shampoo.

Why does the Cleansing Cream not foam?

Our Cleansing Cream doesn’t foam as it’s derived from 100% natural and non-ionic ingredients.

The surfactants, sulfates and chemicals in normal shampoos (which enable it to foam) cause your hair to get greasy more quickly, encouraging you to wash your hair more often.
This is due to the fact that they increase your sebum production, which imbalances your scalp’s microbiome and can also cause itchiness, redness and dandruff.

When will I start to see results from this shampoo?

Once you’ve been using our Soothing Cleansing Cream shampoo for two to three weeks, you should notice that your scalp feels soothed, your hair feels gorgeously healthy and that you don’t need to wash your hair as often. 

Here’s what some users have found:

  • Ultra-gentle for the scalp: 83% agreed
  • Irritation is reduced: 79% agreed
  • Hair is easy to comb: 79% agreed
  • The product relieves feelings of itching: 79% agreed
  • The scalp is soothed: 75% agreed
  • Prevent irritations and itching: 75% agreed

*Tested on 24 persons with have sensitive/delicate scalp, subject to irritation/itching

How often should I wash my hair with Gallinée Soothing Cleansing Cream? Should I alternate this product with a regular shampoo?

We recommend alternating our Soothing Cleansing Cream with your normal shampoo, to begin with – starting with one or two washes a week.

After a few weeks, you’ll notice that you can drop your normal shampoo and switch over to our cream instead. You’ll also notice around this time that your hair feels healthy and shiny but you don’t need to wash it as often – this is because of our unique complex of pre and postbiotics.

Is Gallinée Soothing Cleansing Cream suitable for a very sensitive scalp (psoriasis, eczema, irritations...)?

Every product at Gallinée (including our Soothing Cleansing Cream) is suitable for sensitive skin. Our cream shampoo is designed with a pre and postbiotic complex that is enriched with fermented rice water – this unique blend will soothe irritation, strengthen your microbiome to prevent future sensitivity and clean your hair to perfection.

We have also tested our cream in groups of people with skin sensitivities:

  • 83% agreed that it was ultra-gentle for their scalp
  • 79% agreed that their irritation was reduced
  • 79% agreed Hair is easy to comb:
  • The product relieves feelings of itching: 79% agreed
  • The scalp is soothed: 75% agreed
  • Prevent irritations and itching: 75% agreed

*Tested on 24 persons with have sensitive/delicate scalp, subject to irritation/itching
