Haircare is not just for women, you need to take care of your tresses just as much and you should really aim to do it in an eco friendly way.
It can be tempting just to pick up the nearest bottle of shampoo/shower gel and use it for everything, but not only is this likely to be un-environmentally friendly but it isn’t that great for your hair either. Ingredients in these products can make your hair dry and brittle, as well as drying out your scalp. Sodium laureth sulphate, artificial fragrances, parabens- all of these are plentiful in your shampoo and hair gel, but none of them are good for you or the environment.
As well as the chemical ingredients in them that ultimately go down the drain and end up in the rivers and the ocean, you also need to consider what happens to the packaging as well. If you use one tub of gel and one bottle of shampoo per month, that equates to around 1320 empty plastic containers in a lifetime. Once discarded, these break down into microplastics which are incredibly harmful to wildlife, sealife, and humans.
In addition to this, commercial products are usually tested on animals and not all of them can be considered vegan or vegetarian. If animal welfare is a part of your ethos, then this is another reason why you should make the switch.
By using products that are made ethically and with natural, organic ingredients, you can actually lessen the amount of time you need to spend on your hair. If you use a good quality solid shampoo that is packed full of ingredients that nourish and take care of your hair, and then follow it up with a styling product that does the same, you are less likely to suffer with issues such as dry/oily hair, or pesky dandruff.
Making the change to eco-friendly haircare is probably one of the best eco-decisions you can make and it will benefit not just you and your hair, but our planet as well.
