Till this day, many are surprised to learn that their long locks serve quite an important purpose as the heating and cooling system for their head. That being said, hair is regarded as much more than its practical function. In fact, we can go as far as to say that our hair is the extension of who we are. From confidence to personal style. . Our hair portrays every statement we ever made; whether it was the “I am no longer a child” haircut or the “I am so over him” color change. In fact, our drastic hair changes often result after we have taken on a new chapter in our lives! Certainly, these changes also bring feelings of confidence and empowerment as they make us feel like a brand new “me” and prove that we finally had the guts to try something unexpected! Who would’ve thought that hair had so much power?
Given the importance we give to our hair, there is no doubt that we should treat it accordingly. Indeed a nice color and cut can do the trick, yet a luscious and shiny head of hair just adds the necessary umpf! How do we do so? By using good products and the right amount! What are good products, you ask? It may come as no surprise but the best products are the ones whose ingredient lists aren’t made of unpronounceable chemicals. Putting aside that hairs are not living beings, they still require proper nutrition that can only come from fresh and natural ingredients! In other words, if you want your hair to look alive and healthy, you simply need to treat/feed it accordingly!
Not convinced on the why it is better to switch to natural products for your hair and scalp? Here are some reasons:
Artificial products often contain chemicals that seem to eliminate grease, yet their fast –working formulas bring more harm than we might believe. These chemicals can dry out your scalp, cause irritation/rashes and are too harsh on your hair follicles (: that is the part of your skin that grows hair). Keep in mind that damaged hair follicles can take up to 4 years to regrow! To top it off, other chemicals are added to portray a pleasant fragrance that itself can lead to headaches after long periods of exposure. Unpleasant side effects, right? It is fair to say that artificial shampoos and conditioners aren’t bringing us the result we want for our hair.
On the other hand, natural variants not only avoid all this harm but actually prevent unwanted effects. Natural options are known to actually strengthen hair and hair follicles; therefore reducing baldness and thickening our long mane. Furthermore, natural ingredients contain antioxidants that eliminate chemicals meet through the day; leaving your hair clean and soft just the way you like!
The switch isn’t just beneficial but so easy! There are a ton of excellent products and amazing brands that truly have at heart the wellbeing of your hair. From shampoos to styling balms, you will have no difficulty finding the right products for you and your luscious mane. Here are just a few must-have products we carry:
