(Chondrus crispus)

Chondrus crispus is known as Irish moss because of its red colour.

It is a bushy, red seaweed found on the Atlantic coasts of Europe. It grows between the tide lines to roughly six inches tall, down at depths of fifteen feet.

The seaweed is harvested from spring to autumn. Then is dried and ground to a powder.

We make a decoction by boiling the powder in water, or we use cut, dried seaweed boiled in water.

The decoction is a thick jelly. It is both soothing and softening for the skin and the scalp.

In our Hair Doctor hair moisturising treatment, Irish moss is used both as a decoction and as a powder. In both forms, it conditions the hair, softens the scalp and makes hair glossy and vibrant.
