One thing that we are often asked about in customer service is Organic Hair Care – whether we will ever make our own range, which brands we rate and top tips for clean hair, to keep soft and shiny.
Although I am not a hair care expert (and I do not intend to venture into the industry soon!), I have a wealth of personal experience that I can share on the subject.
Since I developed urticaria over 10 years ago, I have experimented with various natural and biological products to avoid irritating foaming ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
Many attempts and difficulties later (someone with flake scalp?) I finally found a few brands that I would like to buy back and recommend.
Save: Bentley Organics offers a wide range of organic hair care products if you are on a budget. Their products are gentle, effective and certified by the Soil Association. So you can be confident that there are no nasty ingredients hidden there.
Splurge: If you want to spend a little more to keep your hair in top condition, the John Masters series delivers really fantastic results.
Style: Natulique is an Ecocert-certified series that offers excellent permanent colors and of course promises professional results.
In my experience, I have to say that it was much more difficult to get the same clean, fluffy feel with organic hair care – but for me and many women with sensitive skin like me, the benefits definitely outweigh the disadvantages.
A top hair care tip that I have to share includes an alternative use for our new Royal Jasmine & May Chang refill body oil .
Massage 2-3 drops of the luxurious oil mixture into damp hair ends to prevent them from looking and feeling dry or damaged.
The ultra-high Omega content nourishes the hair deeply and ensures a healthy, soft and neat finish – the smell is also divine!
