Medicine Cabinet Makeover: Hair Care

Medicine Cabinet Makeover: Hair Care

 

People will always spend money on hair care products. Americans spend hundreds of millions of dollars on hair care products every year, occasionally paying upwards of $40 a bottle on a specific shampoo or conditioner. How many of these people are aware of the fact that so many of the chemicals used in these commercial products can leak into the body and interfere with proper organ function? Some chemicals can even lead to hair loss!

 

Certain products have been known to cause allergic reactions, dermatitis, organ system toxicity, or problems with the central nervous system. Inorganic detergents negatively affect the hair and scalp, ultimately hindering you from achieving healthier hair. This is why we strongly recommend using all-natural or DIY products. While it may seem a little inconvenient to make your own hair care products, it is typically more affordable and beneficial for your hair.

 

Many natural ingredients work to nourish the scalp, promote hair growth, moisturize the skin, restore hair color, and reduce dryness. These ingredients can include baking soda, essential oils, coconut oil, honey, and Shea butter. Not only are these DIY products environmentally friendly, but you also get more bang for your buck. Additionally, you can usually repurpose the ingredients you purchase to make DIY products. Many of them can be used as skin cleansers, moisturizers, or in diffusers. Give your hair care products a makeover with the following items.
