Seaweed is the general term for many species of marine algae. Wawaza makes their Funori from three important Japanese seaweeds, and nothing else:

  • Fukuro-Funori, also known as jelly moss (Gloiopeltis furcata)
  • Ma-Kombu, the edible kombu (Saccharina japonica)
  • Mekabu, the nutrient-rich roots of Wakame seaweed (Undaria pinnatifida)

The above are notable for their content of calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin K — and importantly iodine and Fucoidan.

Funori is an abundant source of iodine, the deficiency of which plays a significant role in thyroid gland irregularities, resulting in dry hair, thinness, poor hair growth, and hair loss.

Funori is also known to reduce hair loss and promote new growth in some individuals. The Fucoidan polysaccharide in Funori has demonstrated ability to alleviate dryness and promote healthy hair growth cycle.

How To Use

Cleanse and Conditioner the Japanese Traditional Way

Add 1 teaspoon of Funori to 1 cup of hot water in a small container and mix well.

1. Rinse hair with lukewarm water.

2. Apply Funori. Massage gently onto scalp with fingertips.

3. Cleanse hair with straight strokes. Don’t use circular motions which can tangle your hair.

4. Rinse well.

Deep Treatment

Prepare mixture as in above, using a little less than half as much water. This will make the mixture a little more gel-like, so that it will not drip down your neckline.

1. Wash hair as normal (without using the mixture).

2. Towel dry.

3. Apply mixture.

4. Cover hair with cap for 15-20 minutes.

5. Rinse well.

Mix with Your Favorite Shampoo

If you like foam and lather, or if you have a favorite shampoo you like to use, you can add the benefits of Funori to your shampoo:

1. Prepare mixture as in above.

2. Add 2 to 3 teaspoon of shampoo and mix well.

3. Wash and rinse hair as usual.
