Making your beauty ritual completely ecochic
Most people understand how important it is to use healthy, natural products for their skin. But many struggle with transitioning their hair care to natural. Yet, our hair also requires some natural and organic love to grow healthy, strong and with a beautiful glow. Here are 5 tips to help you get there.
1. Get rid of silicones
Silicones form a plastic-like film over your strands; without providing any nutrients or benefits. Get rid of them to allow the good stuff in. And don’t worry, they are easy to spot. In the ingredients list, they are the ones ending in –cone and –xane.
2. Be patient and loving with yourself
When transitioning to natural hair care, it usually gets worse before it gets (MUCH) better. Without the silicone layer and its fake glow, the true dryness of your hair is revealed. Some people get discouraged then. When that happens, remember that now, your hair will actually be able to absorb what you “feed” it.
3. Get to know your hair
When it has been too long, you can sometimes forget what your hair actually looks like without the chemicals. The transition period is a great time to learn how your hair reacts to products and techniques. For instance, does your hair curl up with aloe vera gel? Does it respond well to pre-shampoo oil treatments? Enjoy the process.
4. Go beyond shampoos
Washing your hair is a fundamental but it really is just the start. Your hair needs care, especially in the transition phase to natural and organic products. Unless your hair is very fine and thin, avoid letting it dry without a leave-in product. No need to overdo it. The goal is only to keep it soft and protected from the elements.
5. Have fun and experiment
With the possible changes in your texture, it is the perfect time to experiment: go for a new hair cut; try new styles. If you want to hide the texture, buns and braided hairstyles are just what you need!
It might also be a great time to try a short style. That will help you eliminate the damaged parts and start fresh.
