Reasons Organic Hair Products Are Better For Your Hair
Just a quick google search will tell you that more and more people are looking for organic, sustainable, and cruelty-free hair products. Here we will explain what makes a hair product organic and why organic hair products are better not only for your hair but your scalp and skin too.
What Makes a Hair Product Organic?
Put simply the ingredients that make up organic hair products are farmed sustainably and do not include any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or any other harmful chemicals.
Are Organic Products Vegan Friendly?
Not always. Vegan products must not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Some organic products may still include animal-derived ingredients albeit from organic sources.
Organic vs Non-Organic
So why should you make the switch from non-organic to organic hair products?
Here are our top 5 reasons to make the switch:
1. Organic Shampoo and Conditioners are SLS free
SLS or Sodium Laureth Sulphate can cause skin irritations and is an ingredient in most if not all non-organic shampoos and conditioners. Using a non-organic shampoo and suffer with dry hair? The sodium in your shampoo will dry your hair out pretty quickly. Try switching to an organic shampoo, you will notice a difference in just a couple of washes.
2. Organic Hair Products are Free of Parabens
Parabens are used in products all over the world to give them a longer shelf life. Think of food, foods that are not fresh or have a long shelf life are generally listed in the "bad for you" category. Hair products are no different, using products that contain parabens, in the long run, is bad for your hair and scalp. Organic products are free of these parabens and will leave your hair and scalp in far better condition.
3. Help Colours Last Longer
Do you spend your hard-earned money on coloring your hair? Would you like it to last longer? The chemicals mentioned above will quickly strip the colour from your hair. Switching to organic hair products will help your colour last longer and save you money.
4. There is an Organic Hair Product for all Hair Types
Nature has an ingredient to benefit all hair types. The lack of sulphates make the shampoos and conditioners perfect for curly hair. Yogurt helps dry hair stay hydrated, rose and lemon have thickening benefits for those with thin hair. The list goes on.
5. You are Doing Your Bit for the Environment
Put simply the ingredients that make up organic hair products are farmed sustainably and do not include any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or any other harmful chemicals. Also when organic shampoos, conditioners, and other products are washed down your sink or bath none of the harmful chemicals found in non-organic products enter our waterways. My.Organics goes a step further by using sustainable packaging on all shampoo and conditioner bottles.
