Hair is something that many people care about; they want it to look great, feel great, and they want to take care of it as best they can. One way to do this is to use only natural products to keep our hair clean and even style it.
Even though the specific products you use will depend on whether your hair is oily or dry, straight or curly, long or short, dyed or natural, and so on, the basic principles of choosing natural hair products are the same. Read on to find out more about why natural products are better than synthetic ones every time.
Your Hair Will Be Healthy
Something that the experts at The Secret Salon Academy will be happy to tell you if you asked is that using natural products does not mean your hair has to suffer. In fact, it’s the chemicals in your standard products that are causing the problems.
Although it will take a little time for your hair to start truly benefitting from changing to natural products rather than chemical-filled ones, when it does begin to work and those chemicals have been washed out, your hair will look healthier than ever because it is better able to retain the necessary oils.
On top of this, your scalp will be healthier too. Synthetic hair care products can irritate the scalp, and if you suffer from dandruff, dry skin, or even just an itchy scalp a lot of the time, it might be the shampoo you’re using.
We’ve mentioned above how the chemicals in shampoos, conditioners, and other hair care products can actually do more harm than good when it comes to your hair, but they can also be harmful in other ways; they can hurt the environment.
When you think about the process of washing your hair, you need to rinse the products down the drain. If they are full of chemicals as synthetic products will be, those chemicals will enter the water systems and can end up in rivers and lakes. This will have a detrimental effect on the environment.
Then there is the packaging. Take a look at the bottles and containers you have in your bathroom, and you’ll see that many of them are plastic, and they may not all be recyclable. When you use more natural products, you’ll often (although not always, so it’s best to check) find that the containers and packaging are more eco-friendly and natural too.
You’ll Get Real Results
Did you know that some synthetic hair products aren’t really cleaning your hair? Instead, they’re adding a layer of silicone, making your locks appear shiny and well-nourished without giving them any of the moisture and nutrients your hair really needs. This is why over time, your hair can become brittle, dry, too greasy, or even patchy.
When you use natural products, the results you see will be real, not fake. If your hair looks clean, it’s because it is clean, and that’s better all around.
