Why Switch to Clean Hair Care?

Soft, shiny, bouncy hair is what we are all after – right? But what is the cost of achieving that? Conventional hair care products are filled with ingredients, that are harmful to us and the planet. A very common ingredient in these conventional products is synthetic fragrances. Most labels simply just say the term, ‘fragrance’, but behind that ingredient is a ton of hidden chemicals used to mimic more expensive natural scents. 

Since we absorb everything we put on our skin, these chemicals have been found in breast milk and have led to harmful disruptions in the human body. Dimethicone, which is a type of silicone is another common ingredient to avoid. It is actually a type of plastic, which can create a shiny effect on the hair. But really, it creates a buildup of product on the scalp, clogging your pores, and stopping natural moisture and nutrients from entering the pores. Horrible right? 

I’m sure you’ll be familiar with the next scary ingredient, sulfates. They are chemical detergents, meaning they are really strong cleansers. However, they are far too strong to be used on our skin or hair. They strip the natural oils and moisture we naturally produce, which can actually lead to dry and brittle hair. If you find you have an itchy scalp or even eczema or psoriasis, it may be caused by sulfates. They are so commonly used because they are inexpensive and create that soapy lather that makes us think we are getting a deep clean.  There is a massive list of nasty chemicals that companies fill their haircare with. They do so to create a product that is cheap to make and made to last. 

It’s time to ditch the plastic, chemically filled haircare products and switch to organic, plant-based, and zero-waste shower products.

Haeckels' Seaweed Centric Hair Care

One of the cleanest brands out there, Haeckels of Margate, has created some of the best hair care products on the market. It took the team at Haeckels over two years to develop their hair cleanser, which is their version of a shampoo. It is completely natural but incredibly effective. This product proves you don’t need nasty chemicals to have clean, shiny, and soft hair. We also love that Haeckels created a reusable pump, so you only have to buy a pump once! Their Bio Energiser Conditioner is formulated with a combination of seaweed broth, nettle, and pumpkin seed oil, which together create a product filled with vitamins and fatty acids – everything you need for healthy hair. Their glass bottles look so elegant in any shower too.

Gentle & Organic Hair Care by La Eva

Another local and natural haircare brand that we are proud to stock is La Eva. Like Haeckels, they never use parabens, chemicals, synthetics, and only use raw organic ingredients. A godsend if you struggle with a dry or irritated scalp, their gentle formulas will never aggravate a sensitive scalp. Their organic Spice shampoo and conditioner have the most incredible natural scent of warming ginger, amber, cinnamon, and patchouli. They also come in glass bottles, meaning you can have a totally plastic-free shower.

Ditch the Heat...

After washing it is essential to treat your hair to avoid split, dry ends. By Sarah’s Organic Hair Oil will soften and strengthen hair, leaving it shiny and healthy. I love to pop this into my hair and then use the Arkitaip scrunchies, which are made from linen offcuts of their clothing collection. I braid my hair while it is still damp, and a few hours later I’m left with shiny beachy hair. No heat energy needed for this simple technique! Skip plastic hair clips and elastic bands with the Saya Designs banana leaf tools, that are incredible putting hair up. Unlike most plastic hairbands, it won’t damage your hair and you can reuse it forever, cutting down on your plastic waste.

...and skip the plastic too!

Skip plastic when it comes to hairbrushes and combs too, as they have such a short shelf life and are so cheaply made. Instead, switch to a hairbrush that is designed to last, like the Glasshouse Salon brushes. They are made from high-quality Thermo ash wood, with real wood pins, which act as an incredible detangler. These are small switches that make more of a difference then you might think – replace disposable with products that are designed to last forever!
