Natural Shampoo Vs Chemical Shampoo
Finding the right hair care products can be tricky. How do you know that this bottle, this brand, will keep all the promises it made on its label? Well, there is one way to find out: check the ingredients. If you don’t have much experience understanding them, you are not alone. Ultimately, there is only one kind of hair care products that matter: all-natural.
Synthetic vs All-Natural Hair Care Products
Your current bottles of shampoo and conditioner might promise ‘defined curls’, a ‘natural glow’ or ‘deep moisture’. Sometimes, it really is too good to be true, and what sounds ideal for your hair, could actually be causing it more damage. Conventional bottles of shampoo and conditioner can include synthetic chemicals and pollutants in their products. Your hair will initially look clean, but has been stripped of all the natural oils and coated in toxic ingredients. Your hair then becomes reliant on the product, leading you to use it more often, so you unknowingly inflict more hair and follicle damage. All-natural hair care products are packed with vitamins, nutrients and minerals that help your hair to thrive. Without the influence of synthetic chemicals, your hair will absorb all the natural goodness from the ingredients, leading to healthy hair growth, increase in strength and retaining moisture. If you’re unsure how to tell the difference between the two, there are a few things to look for. Use bottles and brands that are:
- Paraben Free
- Sulfate Free
- Silicone Free
- Use All-Natural Ingredients
If the bottle you picked has all of these, your hair will thank you!
The Best All-Natural Shampoos
If you’re just making the switch from conventional to all-natural hair care products, consider using a peppermint shampoo or lavender shampoo. Peppermint shampoo is a brilliant anti-dandruff shampoo, which contains many minerals and nutrients that help cool the scalp to relieve itching and dandruff, with special antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a keratin shampoo, to provide protein and help with dead or split ends, find one mixed into a lavender shampoo. This will help revive dry, damaged and dehydrated hair, adding a natural shine to your gorgeous locks.
