There are so many dangerous chemicals our bodies are exposed to daily. From cancer- producing carcinogens to hormone-injected foods, it can be difficult to keep your body natural and healthy. Luckily, there has been a new wave of natural organic products that pride themselves on going back to the basics. While food is an obvious part of our lives to look out for, hair and skin products can be just as harmful or helpful.
All natural hair color, shampoo, conditioner, sprays, lotions, body washes, and so much more are now available and can make a big impact on your overall health. Mother Nature has everything we need to get a beautiful clean, shine, and color we desire.
What are some natural ingredients to look for?
In natural hair color products, look for henna. Henna comes from a plant called Lawsonia inermis, which can be found in many countries including, but not limited to, Egypt, Israel, and most famously India.
This natural plant dyes skin and hair by lying on top of it instead of penetrating and altering it like chemicals. Therefore, henna will not wash off, but rather fade over time. This also means roots are much more subtle than the traditional chemical dyeing.
When shopping for natural hair shampoo and conditioner, try products like coconut oil, Shea butter, Aloe Vera, and avocado oil. Basically all things with fatty acids to help create that shine and promote healthy hair growth.
When looking for the perfect body wash, coconut oil and sugar are two great ingredients to look for. They can nourish the skin while removing dead skin and dirt.
When you want to smell delicious, but keep it natural, always look for essential oils and plant waxes. These ingredients are great for you and smell wonderful too!
While going organic may seem like a daunting task, it can be easy when you know what to look for. There are many organic and natural brands available both online and in stores everywhere so be good to your body.
