Only 3? It was hard narrowing down my list of Why You Should Be Using Organic & Natural Hair Care Products Exclusively. I talk to all of my clients about the benefits of making the organic switch. In a nutshell: it’s safer, it’s healthier and it’s sexier!
1. Organic Hair Styling Products can correct, fight and fix dry, frizzy hair. Look for products that contain SHEA BUTTER, ALOE and JOJOBA. Did you know that many smoothing and anti-frizz products actually contain ingredients that over time will cause dryness and frizz? It’s true. Watch out for -TOLUENOL; BENZENEMETHANOL; PETROLEUM; BENZYLIC ALCOHOL; PHENYLCARBINOL; PHENYLMETHANOL; PHENYLMETHYL ALCOHOL; ALPHA-HYDROXYTOLUENE; ALPHA-TOLUENOL, BENZAL ALCOHOL and BENZENECARBINOL
2. Cost Effective. Natural, Organic Hair Care Product costs are comparable to conventional salon exclusive products. The Organic Win? Quality natural hair care shampoos, conditioners and styling products are packed with plant based ingredients and are light on water. Therefore, less product is needed! Conventional salon products are loaded with cheap, synthetic additives that literally fill the bottle and offer no utilitarian value. Some of the synthetic fillers to steer clear of: petroleum derived PROPYLENE GLYCOL and PARAFFIN.
3. The Scents are Safe & Sound. Certified Organic products cannot legally contain dangerous synthetic fragrances. Steer clear of any product that lists ‘Fragrance’ as one of the ingredients. The chemical cocktail of synthetic fragrances is usually made from petroleum and hormone disrupting Phthalates. Look instead for scents that are naturally derived or plant-based.
