A “Natural” Experiment – An Alternative Approach On Haircare

----By Kylie Tang----

You had your hair dyed, curled or bleached last year, and you just made another color……You deserve to be the beautiful one! Yet your silk-like and good-looking hair seems to be an old story. I was addicted to various hair colors and styles, and it resulted in an enormous demand for haircare products. Some girls have tried the highest-rated products yet their efforts were in vain. “Which bottle shall I purchase next?” is often asked by girls with dried-out hair resulted by excessive, harsh style treatments.

Why did you buy the shampoos that you purchased recently? We bought them with thousands of reasons but we seem to be never satisfied with their haircare performances.

Attempt natural haircare, as you see the old ones might not be the best for you. How far are you willing to go for less-chemical products? Spend some months on the trial.

Before The Experiment, Understand “Shampoo”

The word “Shampoo” is derived from “champo” (Hindi), which means to massage or press. As early as the 1500s people combined soapberries and herbs to keep their hair clean. Shampoo has evolved over the years and was identified to use a couple times a week at most. Shampoo, in the old days, was recognized with a unitary usage to remove dirt from the scalp. Nobody needed to get functions like hair conditioning, moisturizing, color conservation or with good texture. On the contrary, now most of us desire a multi-purpose shampoo to be the very initial step in haircare, to cure our overstrained hair.

Less Is More

You ought to experiment an additive-free shampoo. It doesn’t mean to use a very primordial (some can’t even produce the lather) shampoo. Jessa Blades, a natural beauty artist, suggests avoiding:

-          Parabens (A preservative)
-          Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (A lather-producing agent)
-          Petrolatum (Creates shiny hair)
-          Propylene Glycol (Hair becomes smooth)
-          Dimethicone (Lubricates the surface of the hair), etc.

Using Dimethicone or not in haircare is still a controversial issue. To me, I find the disadvantages of Dimethicone outweigh its benefits. I value a shampoo that prepares hair for the next treatments. Yet, Dimethicone adds another layer to one’s hair, builds up and makes the hair heavy. I highly recommend a shampoo that simply clarifies the scalp (or even removes Dimethicone). Clean up, and that’s enough.

Try John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Shampoo. It features no Dimethicone, SLS and even fragrance. Organic extracts of Chamomile, White Tea and Jojoba oil gently cleanse your hair.

I also like Melvita Expert Repairing Shampoo. It’s sulfate-free with good properties of Rose Hip, Camellia and Calendula Flower Oils. If you are concerned about your dry, damaged hair, let Melvita help you.

Make Use Of Good Herbs

We may not understand what the ingredients on the labels of shampoos are about, but it seems likely we know some of the names of flowers (or plants). I must say it’s an experiment (or a trial) – elements you might not have faith in them before. They are excellent nourishment indeed.

-          Argan, Camellia and Jojoba Oil restore over-processed hair
-          Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera keep scalp moisturized
-          Shea Butter enhances the shine and color of hair

Yes it’s okay to have a silicone-free conditioner. Andalou Argan Stem Cells Conditioner with Argan Stem Cells help strengthen strands with less breakage. It results in healthier hair and creates an amplified volume.

Plant Keratin, Biocymentine and Camelina work well for extremely damaged hair. RENE FURTERER Absolue Keratine Ultimate Renewal Mask is a good choice for SOS treatment.

I love oils! 2 lovable oils, Certified Organic Argan and Linseed Oil, are key ingredients of Olioseta Oro Del Marocco Oil Treatment for Blonde-Fine Hair Argan and Linseed Oil.

Be Healthy

The hair experiment requires you to consume more good food in order for it to succeed more easily. Avocados, nuts, flaxseeds contain Protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and iron that are hair-healthy while spinach, guava and sweet potatoes are also good choices.

Haircare Is Very Personal

That’s the truth. So which bottle shall you purchase next? Having a relatively low-chemical haircare routine means you are putting bounds to the drawbacks of harmful substances to your hair. I must congratulate you if you have discovered your ideal haircare. But keep trying, keep experimenting!
