So you have made the decision to switch out your shampoo for a natural alternative, but what about your conditioner? There is no point in using an eco-friendly, all natural shampoo then slathering on a silicone filled conditioner to undo all the good work. Using natural products to condition your hair, is as, if not more important than using a natural shampoo.
Many conventional conditioners rely on silicones and various forms of plastics to give the illusion that your hair is soft and healthy. This means that your hairs health is falsified and nothing is done to get to the root (excuse the pun) of any issues you might have such as dry or damaged strands, flaky scalp, or oiliness. These plastics build up on your hair only to be stripped out by harsh foaming agents, leaving behind dull, lifeless hair that overproduces oils to replete the ones removed, meaning the cycle continues.
Artificial fragrances are another issue- these can cause irritation to your skin and respiratory system as well as dry out the hair further. You should also keep your eyes out for preservatives, man-made oils, and other chemicals that have been linked to all manner of nasty health issues. Why risk your overall health for healthy hair, when there are so many other safer, more natural alternatives?
But it is not just what is in the conditioner that is the issue, it is what it comes packaged in as well. We throw away billions of single-use plastic bottles every year, many of which once contained shampoo and conditioner. Imagine you go through an average of three bottles of hair care (shampoo, conditioner, treatments, gels, serums etc) products a month, that is a staggering 2700 bottles per person in a lifetime.
Most of these bottles will end up in landfills or the ocean, broken down into microplastics that poison the environment and the animals that live in it. At Peace With The Wild, we cannot sit back and be a part of this.
That is why we have carefully curated a collection of sumptuous liquid and solid conditioners that come in zero-plastic packaging, do not contain nasty chemicals, are natural, organic, vegetarian (some are even vegan) and lessen your impact on the environment. Better that than, we have tried and tested them all to make sure they really do work wonders on your hair.
Don’t be shy, give them a try!
