Organic hair care. What should you know?
We’ve previously revealed the amazing benefits of using organic skincare products, and since then we’ve dedicated some time to do the same for organic hair care. Because after all, our hair deserves just as much TLC as our skin doesn’t it?! So, if you want to go completely organic then you’ll need to know the ins and outs of what organic products are out there that can cater to all your hair needs. We’ve put together some research to reveal what you should be looking for and what to avoid when it comes to your hair care regime. Read on to find out more!
Our previous post looked at all those nasty, despicable chemicals such as parabens, phthalates and alcohol which are often found in many skincare products. If you want the lowdown on that, you can check it out here. The shocking revelation here though is that they can also be found in hair products too! So not only have we got parabens, phthalates and alcohol hidden in many products, but it’s also known for formaldehyde, sulphates and chlorine to be found in them too. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? As we’ve mentioned before, it’s great that we focus on what we put into our bodies for our health and wellbeing, but we should also focus on what we put into our bodies - which is why going organic is a good idea.
If you’ve recently decided to change from a sulphate laden shampoo, you may be wondering what ingredients are suitable for your hair. Here are some organic ingredients to look out for when making the transition from sulphate laden shampoo to more natural, organic ones:
Aloe Vera - Helps to promote growth and strengthens hair, it’s also a good ingredient if you have scalp problems too.
Jojoba Oil - Another ingredient which helps hair shine naturally and is known to have moisturising properties to aid with scalp conditions.
Chamomile Extract - A fantastic ingredient for all-over hair health, sealing in colour and keeping hair soft!
There are also other things (as well as using an organic shampoo and conditioner) that you can do to help your hair without the use of harsh chemicals. For example, drinking more water will hydrate both your hair and skin as well as eating foods that are rich in Vitamin A. Remember to also look for ingredients such as Aloe Vera which has moisturising properties but it’s an all-natural ingredient!
By now, you may be wondering what organic hair care products to choose. We have a wide range of organic treatments that use only the most natural ingredients. Take a look below and find out!
This is an overnight scalp and hair mask which can help your hair become fuller, longer and nourished. It’s packed with a wealth of natural ingredients, including Daucas Carota (carrot seed oil) which stimulates the growth of new cells and keep the scalp moist. There is also Moringa Oleifera (Moringa) seed oil, this is full of Omega-3 fatty acids which are extremely beneficial to the hair and skin as they help to maintain healthy hair follicles.
Our Hair Food Growth Elixir is designed especially for the scalp. Containing Organic Ricinus Communis (Black Castor) seed oil, it’s great for soothing an itchy scalp and relieving dandruff! It’s also been known to help hair grow thicker. Another ingredient in this wonderful product is Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil. It replenishes the moisture and improves the texture of the hair. So you can say goodbye to conditioners that are full of chemicals as these just make your hair limp, which is no good at all. Our Hair Food Growth Elixir treatment can also aid easing skin irritations too, so another good reason to invest in organic haircare!
