When I was younger, I was never really into hair care products, and I mostly used whatever was in the cupboard at the time. This usually consisted of anything that was on sale. Having very sensitive skin, eczema, rashes and puffy eyes began to appear regularly, so I started to pay closer attention to what I was putting onto my body. The following products are natural, sulphate-free, 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They are a bit on the pricy side, but they leave my hair feeling cleaner and silkier, and I feel safe using them on my body.
Product: Tropical Hair Treatment
This product makes my hair shiny and soft, and it helps prevent split ends.
I use this product every fortnight, rotating every other fortnight with a jar of coconut oil.
I massage this Tropical Hair treatment into the ends of my hair, and use a comb to add some treatment to the roots of my hair. I find that by doing this, my hair does not get too oily. I leave the product in my hair overnight, and then wash it out in the morning by shampooing my hair twice, and conditioning it, as normal.
Product: Colour Repair Shampoo
Although my hair is not coloured, I use Colour Repair shampoo as I find it more moisturizing for my hair.
I apply shampoo to the roots and tips of my hair to form a lather, and leave the shampoo in for a couple of minutes before rinsing.
The shampoo is a clear gel with a mild ‘wild hibiscus’ fragrance, but I cannot tell.
Product: Volume Senses Conditioner
Even though I have thick hair, I still use the Volume Senses conditioner.
I massage the conditioner through the roots and ends of my hair, and leave it for a couple of minutes before rinsing it out.
The conditioner is a thick white paste with a very faint ‘lime spa’ fragrance.
I also regularly use a jar of coconut oil to moisturize my hair, and apple cider vinegar to clean my hair when it feels grotty. For more information on how I use these products, look at my Natural Remedies for Dandruff post.
