Cleaning your scalp is one of the most important things you can do for healthy hair and new growth. The Soigné cleanser is sulfate, silicone, paraben, and drying alcohol-free. (Because it doesn’t have sulfates it also doesn’t lather.)
Here is Everything you need to know about my Soigné Hair Cleanser.
7 Interesting Facts about Soigné Hair Cleanser
- This is a clarifying cowash so you can use it instead of shampoo.
- Special ingredients like turmeric, apple cider vinegar, and aloe juice makes this a unique product for me (I’ve not used anything like this before)
- It is protein-free; it has no active protein ingredient.
- Consistency is creamy and it will not lather like a shampoo.
- The sticker on the tub says: Made with love by Jackie. Jackie is the owner of my Soigné – I love to support women-run small business. This is one of them.
- It doesn’t have any artificial fragrances and it smells like peppermint and turmeric. It’s a little ayurvedic, deliciously real and raw.
- Peppermint oil and tea tree oils help ward off infection, stops itching, and eases inflammation.

Christmas Curls 💕 At 99% humidity, 13 degrees cold weather, this is my day 2 boo! . . Forgot to tell you, I used @onlycurlslondon creme as leavein yesterday and then used @embracethecurl_ beeswax cream over it! This is my best combo and has given me consistent results! . . Also, at 80% dry my hair got frizzy, because of diffusing with heat (so stupid! But practical, to dry my hair fast in this cold weather) . . To tame that frizz, I followed @curlsandblondies and applied a cream on my dry frizzy areas, finger coiled some areas for that extra definition! I used @curlsmith_official oil-in-cream to do that and boom 💥 #sannesmethod . . . A quick shout out to @mysoigne again because I used their clarifying Hair Cleanser, without that my stylers wouldn’t have behaved so well #methinks . Merry Christmas 🎄 indeed 🥰 . . . . #frizzfreecurls #curlyhair #naturallycurly #embraceyourcurls #healthyhair #naturalcurls #naturalhair #curlyhairdontcare #embracethecurls #girlswithcurls #cacheadas #curlcommunity #curly_natural_hair #mynaturalhairisdope #naturalchixs #respectmyhair #hair #curlsaunaturel #cachos #onlycurls #curlsmith
More about the Ingredients
- Turmeric has antifungal, anti-inflammatory properties that soothe and rid of dandruff.
- Apple cider vinegar helps restore the natural PH level of the scalp. It also prevents moisture loss from the scalp, making hair shiny.
- Aloe vera repairs dead skin cells on the scalp, doubles as a conditioner and promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff!
That’s an awfully yellow bottom
If your tub is sitting untouched for a few days, you will notice the bottom is yellower than the other parts. The sides of the tub could appear white. This is because of the turmeric and the consistency is little beady. The turmeric has the tendency to settle down so make sure to stir it before you use.
Aloe is a protein too!
Although this is a protein-free cleanser, aloe vera contains trace amounts of protein. Some plant like Spirulina, Hemp, Quinoa, soy, oats, contain plant-based protein. If you are protein-sensitive than you should check your sensitivity to aloe vera before deciding to purchase.
Keep calm and stop scratching
So if you have sensitive scalp issues like psoriasis, dandruff you want to use products like this which have no sulphates, no parabens, no drying alcohols, no baddies whatsoever. And it has apple cider vinegar (ACV), turmeric, peppermint, and aloe vera – things which will help your scalp thrive.
(Disclaimer: This is not a consultation, I am not a doctor. My curl friends on IG with very delicate, sensitive scalps have seen great results using it, unlike anything else they’ve tried.)
How I use my Soigné Hair Cleanser
Step 1: Before my wash I use a little bit of oil and detangle my hair. (Prepoo article here)
Step 2: I rinse my hair with warm water to remove any dirt, residue or buildup from the scalp and hair.
Step 3: Using a wooden spoon, I stir it really well to get the turmeric and all the ingredients even.
Step 4: I take a generous amount and massage it gently into my scalp. I believe the beady consistency of the turmeric helps in scrubbing my scalp clean.
Step 5: I smooth it on my hair and use my Flexy Brush to distribute the cowash evenly all over my hair. The Flexy Brush bristles are very good to stimulate your scalp. So if you have, use it while you cowash or to shampoo to stimulate your scalp. This way I don’t have to take more product. I can just work with what I have applied.
Step 6: I keep it in my hair for 5 minutes. (Don’t keep it for a long time because overdoing it with apple cider vinegar can cause more damage than it is worth. Learn more about ACV rinse here)
Step 7: Rinse thoroughly and follow up with Soigné hair cream.
Do I need a conditioner after?
Due to the moisturising agents in the cleanser like aloe and jojoba oil I don’t usually follow up with a conditioner after rinsing my hair. If you wanted to use a conditioner after, you can. Many like performing “Squish to Condish” to leave the conditioner in but I would advise you to use your regular conditioner for it. Do not leave this cleanser in since it is specifically a cleanser, with ACV in it. The brand also advises you to rinse everything out.
How often should I use the Soigné hair cleanser?
I wash my hair every 4 days but that doesn’t that mean I use this cleanser every wash. This is a clarifying cowash and I clarify my hair every 3rd or 4th wash only. For example, I will use the Curlsmith Cowash, say, twice and then use my Soigne cowash on the third wash. I also use shampoos to clarify my hair. If you wash your hair daily or every other day, I advise you to use this cowash on a weekly basis only.
How does this cleanser help me?
- Squeaky clean scalp without the stripping your natural oils
- Doesn’t weigh down your curls
- Achieve Bouncy, build-up free curls
- Soft, moisturized, voluminous hair
I’ve used my Soigné products for over 4 months at the time of this writing. I recommend this cleanser for all the great results it has given me personally, and for the results that others have told me about as well. Stay tuned for my review on the rest of the line!

Soft, defined, happy curls #easywashday 💥 . The real MVP is the @mysoigne Hair Cleanser here. It’s a clarifying cowash (say WHAaa!) so it got my hair and scalp feeling squeaky clean, without stripping out any moisture; so my stylers can work better on my hair. . . BONUS: I can use it multiple time during the week too! I totally recommend this for low porosity or protein-sensitive curlies ❤️ . . Anyway, since the cowash is protein-free, I balanced my washday with all protein stylers. Finished with @cachosbrazilhaircare (video in last post, but forgot to add in photo here) but Boom 💥 . . . . #mysoigne #moogoo #morroconoil #devacurl #washday #cowashing #cowash #proteinfree #proteinsensitivehair #lowporosityhair #lowporosity
