You might have noticed the recent shift in trend and preference towards natural and eco-friendly beauty products. Although heavy on the pocket, this shift promotes sustainable living, simply put -- it's considered to be an investment, both in terms of economics and resources.
This change in dynamics can be observed in hair care, skincare, fashion -- basically the industry as a whole. It promotes sustainable patterns of consumption and use, which necessitates shifts in individual attitudes and behaviour.
In this article, we’re going to understand the benefits of going natural with your hair care products. If you plan on learning more, keep reading!
1. Good riddance from harmful chemicals
Most hair care products are pumped with chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, silicone etc. Silicones are often used in hair care products to add shine to hair however, silicones only give the appearance of healthier hair by coating it to make it appear sleeker, frizz free.
Similarly, recent studies have shown that parabens are potentially dangerous and possibly carcinogenic in nature. Thus, it would be in your advantage to shift to natural products as they wont chemically suffocate your hair.
2. Kinder for the earth
Many natural brands package their products in biodegradable material, ensuring that their disposal won't cause harm to the environment.
Also the product itself, such as shampoos, when rinsed don't release all the chemicals into the water and spread pollutants.
3. Healthy scalp
Using a shampoo with naturally derived ingredients will gently cleanse the scalp without stripping it of its natural oils - which are vital for a healthy scalp.
Chemically produced products can dry out the scalp and lead to problems such as inflammation and dandruff.
By cutting of these preservatives, your hair will slowly return to their original state and you’ll find them to be smoother and healthier.
4. Animals won't be harmed
While it is unethical, unfortunately multiple brands conduct animal testing for their products. Most natural brands deviate from this practice. It’s always a good idea to check the label before you decide to purchase something.
5. Products can be multi purposed
Many natural hair care products double up as skin care products because of just how natural the ingredients are. Sometimes certain hair creams can be used as hand creams, saving you money and effort of buying one separately.
Now that you have more information as to why natural products are better for both you and the environment, it's time to make the switch.
