A Natural Hair Routine
Switching to natural hair products is a no brainer, not only is it better for your hair it's also good for the environment. If you are considering it but not sure how to go about it, don't stress we got you covered.
Cosmetic hair products might show fast results on initial use, but over time they not only stop working but cause serious damage to hair. This is due to the ingredients used; they strip the hair of natural oil and seal the hair cuticles, leading to dull lifeless hair. They typically contain sulphates and drying alcohol (can cause irritation to the scalp and dryness), silicones (they seal cuticles preventing moisture and dehydrate the hair) parabens and phthalates (they mimic hormones and can disrupt the endocrine system when absorbed through the scalp) and to cover the smell of all these chemicals other chemicals are added! These in turn are inhaled and can cause headaches to some people. Unfortunately the damage doesn’t stop there, these chemicals wash down the drain and find their way to the environment at large, and you're left with plastic bottles to dispose of…
Natural products on the other hand are not only gentle on the hair but they nourish it too, and your hair needs that since it is organic matter. Over time not only will you notice the difference, but you will sustain that improvement as they do no damage to the hair. They will not dry or irritate your scalp, on the contrary they will sooth and nourish it. Natural ingredients help strengthen and maintain healthy follicles, leading to thicker, fuller hair and reduces hair loss. They are typically scented with essential oils that add their own benefits, or smell like the natural material they are made from. When you are done taking care of your hair naturally, you can rest assured that you're not sending synthetic chemicals down the drain and into the environment. You also don't have to worry about plastic packaging, most natural producers use eco-friendly or recyclable packaging.
So ditch those cosmetic detergents and give this natural routine a try.
