Make the Switch! Why Natural Hair Care is Best

Just when you think you’re on top of your health, you’ve made it twice to the gym this week, consumed that questionable tasting green smoothie, and have been smothering your skin in nutrient rich, botanical filled Sukin- you then jump into the shower and wash your hair with chemical based Shampoo and Conditioner. Why oh why!?


Why should you use natural hair care products?

We admit, there has been a negative stigma attached to natural hair care in the past. “It doesn’t foam, and it just doesn’t leave my hair as silky!” But these nasties that foam up your shampoo and leave the hair silky smooth are actually doing more worse than good.

Sulphates and Silicones (and many more!) strip your hair of its natural oils, resulting in dry and dull hair and an over production of oils on the scalp.

They also remove the good bacteria which is vital to balance a healthy scalp.


What are Sulphates and Silicones?

Sulphates are detergents added to products like shampoos and conditioners to make them sudsy. That sounds nice, right? Well, unfortunately they also strip all the healthy oils from your hair and scalp, and can leave your hair dry and brittle. They can also irritate your skin.

The most common sulphates you'll find in shampoos and conditioners are sodium lauryl sulphate and sodium laureth sulphate. You may have seen them referred to as SLS.

No matter what they're called, if you want healthy hair, you should look for SLS-free shampoos and conditioners.

So what about silicones? Silicones are manmade materials that are sort of like plastics. They give your hair the appearance of shine, but end up leaving it damaged. That's because it's basically coating your hair in plastic!
What's more, silicones weigh your hair down over time, making it dull and lifeless. They keep vital moisture out of your hair, and make your conditioner less effective.
