A Different, Gentle, & Simplified Guy’s Shampoo

In this Modern Mammals Review – Is Shampoo A Hoax? We will be looking at a shampoo today, to be more specific, a men’s shampoo that throws out some conventional practices of typical shampoos and uses some bare-bones ingredients to get the job done. I’ll explain it later. i

A minimalist approach to washing your hair.


I am not an affiliate of Modern Mammals, but I did reach out to them, and they happily sent me an eight-ounce bottle of their product to review here on my website. It was very appreciated on my end as I love getting new products, especially when they have a unique product like this one.

What Is Modern Mammals Easy Rinse?

Okay…what is this? A shampoo? Conditioner?

You won’t find the word shampoo or conditioner anywhere on their product. Nope, not anywhere, but you will find the word Easy Rinse. Modern Mammals is essentially making their version of a better way to wash your hair, minus the harshness of shampoos that strip all oils from the hair and scalp. Oftentimes, it leaves your hair dry, itchy, and more unmanageable.

How so?

They perform this feat by eliminating certain ingredients that create the lather and suds. Thereby being less aggressive. The ingredients are also free of parabens and sulfates as well. These ingredients are not necessarily needed to wash your hair.

Why would this be better?

They state that there are benefits to using their product. For example, having great hair days every single day, a more natural approach to hair care, maintaining your natural pH balance, and no poofy, dry, itchy shampoo hair.

Interested?…Yeah, me too, so much so that I had to reach out to them and get some.

What In The Sauce? List of Ingredients

This is the second formulation of their product. I found this out by looking around online. Their first formulation had more natural ingredients and was based on the main ingredient of Aloe Vera. However, the company asked their customers which formulation they preferred, and the majority chose the newest formulation.


Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, C13-15 Alkane, Dimethicone, Fragrance, Charcoal, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium EDTA

How To Use


  1. Wet Hair
  2. Rub in hands

My Experience Using It. Is It Worth Getting?

Long ago in the past, I used to wash my hair every day and even sometimes with Prell shampoo (the nuclear bomb equivalent of shampoos). If you want to strip all life from your hair, then use Prell. This left my hair damaged, dry, flaky, and a mess to control and comb. It’s a real mess!

Years later, I learned to wash my hair less often. This left my hair a whole lot better in every category.

Typical results of using Modern Mammals.

Needless to say, I was very interested in trying this product selfishly and in potential service to others through my website.

So how was it?

It is a different experience. I’ve been using this for over a week now, every day, and I haven’t experienced any dry hair from constant use.

I typically add a small dab to the center of my palm, spread it on my hand, and then apply it to my hair. The lack of any semblance of lather or suds is the weird part. It makes you think, is this stuff working or what?

The other weirdness you might experience is that your hair is the same as it was before after using it. This is precisely what Modern Mammals wants based on what I read in their product description. “The same,” being more specific, is that your hair isn’t stripped of oils, and you have the same control over your hair as before using this product. But it definitely cleans your hair, too, just in a less abrasive manner.

Rinsing out your hair after applying it is super easy, too. I washed my hair for a straight week with Modern Mammals, and it never dried my hair out. I usually don’t shampoo my hair every day but with this stuff, I can.

Worth Getting?

I believe specific individuals would love this product. Do I think it is for everybody? No. But it is worth trying if you think it would help your hair.

So, it is worth getting if you struggle with any of the problems mentioned above or are looking for a gentler hair wash. It does deliver in this area for certain.

I like using the product as it smells natural and leaves my hair much easier to mess with afterward. I can style it like I usually style it, and it just seems to make styling easier.

Can be considered pricey for 8 ounces, but this little bottle will last me a long time as I only put a small amount in my hair to wash it.

I highly recommend checking it out and seeing what the hype is all about.

Pros & Cons


  • A very subtle but fresh & clean scent. I really appreciate this and find it enjoyable.
  • It leaves my hair with a more natural feeling to it. It’s weird to describe, but it just does.
  • It is easy to wash out and takes no time whatsoever to rinse out. Thus forth hence, the name “Easy Rinse”.
  • Willing to listen to customer feedback and make changes.
  • Free of Sulfates and Parabens.
  • Super simple directions.
  • Can be used every day or as often as you want.
  • I typically use hair products like clays, pomades, and such, and it washes these products out well, leaving no residue.
  • I love that it is an all-in-one deal! Being that you don’t need shampoo and conditioner.
  • It can be purchased on a one-time purchase or on a subscription basis (60, 90, or 180-day basis).
  • Great for dry or frizzy hair.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Doesn’t take much product to wash hair.


  • The older formulation of Modern Mammals had Organic Aloe as its first ingredient. That has been replaced by water—an absolute negative in my book. I wish I didn’t find this when researching, but truths are truths.
  • The older formulation of ingredients had a lot more natural ingredients than the newer formulation. Bummer! But I guess they polled their customers, and the new formulation was better liked, so they aimed to please. This makes it more of a neutral point.
  • You kind of miss the suds. You often wonder, when using it, if this is working. But rest assured, your hair is getting clean.
