The perfect hair care solution for travel, the gym, camping or everyday use!
Our Old "Tyme" Style Shampoo Puck, based on a time before "Hair Conditioner" existed...it was the first "2 in 1" if you will. Back in the day shampoo had to be both cleansing and conditioning, traveling can often be a rush-rush scenario too, so allow us to kill 2 birds with one stone for you!
Inside each of our conditioning shampoo pucks you will find Prickly Pear Oil, Yucca Root, Neem Honey & Cider Vinegar!
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has long been used as a natural hair care product to promote healthy hair in both men and woman. Its acidity is close to that of natural hair, it's a great conditioner and excellent natural cleaning agent.
Yucca Root (Known to Native Americans as the "Shampoo Tree") is Nourishing, Cleansing and Strengthening.
The humectant properties of honey help regulate and retain moisture in hair, plus honey is said to strengthen hair follicles for healthy growth.
Then there's the super synergistic combo of Prickly pair and Aloe Vera! Possibly the best shampoo you have ever tried.
Excerpt From Sun Up Ad (1963)
"Sun Upmanship That’s the name of the game.
George goes around smelling like flowers in bloom. You go around with the manly scent of Sun Up after-shave. YOU get the girl. Gillette didn’t pick flowers to find this new scent. We’re not perfume people. We captured only the manlier, muskier, spicier scents of nature. And we came up with the scent that you wear like a man...like a man who’s one up on the other guy."
["Sorry George, My Grandmother Just Flew In"]
Sun Down is my take on a very classic, special aftershave scent from the 60's (63-69), Gillette's Sun Up ! I have been working on this little number for almost a year now with much trial and error...mostly error...but finally success, which was well worth the effort!
I really can't say it better than their classic ad, but I'll try.
Some have compared this scent to James Bond and what he'd wear, others relate it to that classic, working man scent! I subscribe to the latter scent description myself, in fact I find it very close to Aqua Velva...at least in the same club. Let me clarify, close to AV at first sniff, but during the course of the day and initial dry down it's own unique character shines through. In short, "Sun Up" was truly a perfect name for the stuff! If the 60’s had a “smelltrack”, there’s no doubt this would be it for the everyday man on the street...and such an interesting time in our history (usa).
I am actually at a loss as to why this was ever discontinued after only a 6 year run. I mean, even the bottle was super cool; shapely with a cool bakelite cap...classy!
