All-Natural, Safe Hair Products

Is it really necessary to buy organic hair products? Well, listen to this. Research (Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York) has found that as much as 60% of everything that you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body,  and the average person has 91 industrial chemicals in the body! Am I starting to convince you?

There are certain ingredients that you should avoid when shopping for hair products: sodium and ammonium lauryl sulfates, lauryl alcohol, mureth sulfate, propylene glycol (antifreeze) and olefin sulfonate (deodorized kerosene). Look for organic hair products that contain organic tea tree oil. This has been used for a long time to clean and soothe. Another beneficial ingredient is beta glucan, which may help soothe healthy skin.

Organic hair products gently infuse your hair follicles and skin cells with natural minerals, herbal extracts, and oils. If you are looking for shampoos that support healthy hair, look for products that are made with aloe vera and coconut oil, which are natural moisturizers for the scalp. If you require enhanced shine and moisture for your hair, look for products that include organic shea butter. When you use organic shampoos and conditioners, you're also helping the environment by letting bio-degradable substances go down the drain instead of harsh chemicals.
