Everything you need to know about organic hair care
We believe that our hair deserves the same level of care as our skin, and opting for organic hair care products is a great way to make a start. If you’re looking to make your beauty routine completely organic, you might be interested in knowing about the choice of available organic products, and how they can cater to all of your hair needs. With this in mind, 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.
Harsh chemicals in hair products
Our previous blog post on chemical influence & why you should go organic looks at harsh chemicals, such as parabens, phthalates and alcohol, which are often found in skincare products. Unfortunately, these damaging ingredients can regularly be found in hair products too. In addition to this, not only do we have to be aware of parabens, phthalates and alcohol hidden in many products, but we need to avoid formaldehyde, sulphates and chlorine which are also often included.
Sounds scary, doesn’t it? As we’ve mentioned before, it’s important for our health and wellbeing to focus on what we put into our bodies, but we should also focus on what we put onto our bodies when it comes to skin and hair care.
Which organic ingredients are good for my hair?
If you’re looking to choose products that are healthy for your hair, you may be wondering which ingredients are suitable. Here, we share some organic ingredients to look out for when making the transition from chemical-rich shampoos to natural, organic ones:
This organic hair care ingredient helps to promote growth and strengthens hair, making it perfect for those who want long, healthy locks. It’s also a good ingredient if you have scalp problems, and can help to lessen irritation.
Another ingredient which helps hair shine naturally, and is known to have moisturizing properties too, jojoba oil can also assist with scalp problems, making it an all-round wonder ingredient.
A fantastic ingredient for complete hair health, chamomile extract seals in color and keeps hair soft, ensuring that you’re left with a perfectly swishable head of hair.
How else can I keep my hair healthy?
In addition to opting for organic hair care products, there are other things that you can do to keep your hair healthy without the use of harsh chemicals. For example, drinking more water will hydrate both your hair and skin, as will eating foods that are rich in vitamin A, such as carrots, spinach, and broccoli. Remember to look for hair care ingredients like Aloe Vera too, as they boast moisturizing properties and are completely natural.
Which organic hair care products should I buy?
