Choosing the right natural hair care products can be a bit of a challenge, especially if this is uncharted territory for you but don’t worry, help is at hand! Here are some great ingredients to keep your eyes peeled for when you’re picking the perfect product.
Is there anything that coconut oil isn’t good for? The short answer is ‘no’ and it is even a great ingredient to use on your hair. Both coconut oil and coconut milk have intensive moisturising properties that take excellent care of your scalp and your hair leaving you feeling soft, smooth, and smelling delicious!
Aloe Vera contains proteolytic enzymes which help to repair dead skin cells on your scalp. It also conditions your hair, smoothes it, and increases shine. If you suffer from an itchy scalp or dandruff, you will find that shampoo with Aloe Vera in it is perfect for the job.
An ingredient in many kinds of hair products, argan oil is great at reducing frizz and taming wild locks. It is packed full of vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids which help to increase the elasticity of hair and restore its shine. Its vitamin E content takes great care of your follicles and works towards preventing split ends and breakage.
Hemp oil is a popular ingredient in natural hair care products due to the way it locks in moisture to the hair and helps to combat dryness on the scalp. Through its high Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids, it helps to make your hair grow quicker as well as providing protein which further helps to promote growth.
Shea butter is believed to stimulate hair growth as well as moisturising and nourishing dry scalps that can be prone to plakes. It also helps to repair damaged hair and is great for those with curls as it keeps hair soft, moisturised, and ever so lustrous. If you use a shampoo containing shea butter, be prepared for gorgeous, shiny, thick locks.
