Getting Started with Natural Haircare
Having beautiful hair is important to us, but with so many toxins in our environment, using name brands can add even more to the toxic “soup” that flows into our water supplies. Traditional haircare products can wreak havoc on not only our hair but also our bodies. Because they contain harmful synthetic chemicals that are absorbed through the skins pores we are putting ourselves at risk by directly applying carcinogenic chemicals into the scalp. By doing this on a regular basis we are basically inviting these dangerous ingredients in to damage our system and potentially putting ourselves at risk of cancer and disease. Ingredients typically contained in regular shampoos have been proven to reduce the size of hair follicles, irritate and disrupt oil glands, dry out the scalp, which ultimately can result in hair loss.
Natural haircare are a much better option, with only natural ingredients to nourish the hair and scalp. If you are new to using natural hair care products, there are few things you need to know before getting started.
First, chemical-based traditional shampoos usually have a pH level of around 5-6, which closely matches your hair’s natural level. It is most often achieved using toxic surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. The issue here is that surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (or similar) are responsible for producing a thick lather while shampooing and people equate lots of foam with the cleaning power of a shampoo. That really has nothing to do with how well a shampoo works, we just have been “trained” to expect lots of lather by the chemical shampoos we have been using since childhood. Natural shampoos contain plant-derived surfactants that let your scalp restore its natural pH level and oils.
Another consideration when transitioning from traditional to natural shampoo is the use of silicon in many commercial haircare brands. Silicon coats the hair very much like plastic to give it slip and shine. The same results can be achieved by using the correctly chosen natural haircare. Unfortunately, the transition from commercial to natural formulas can be a bit difficult. Your hair will need to detox – a process that can take up to a few weeks depending on the types of product previously used. During this process hair can feel very dry and tangle easily. As the follicles shed the coating they will begin to be able to drink in moisture, but this can take time.
