Looking to make your hair look amazing without negatively impacting the environment or resorting to using too many chemicals? Then this is the blog for you. Read on for the Peace With the Wild guide to styling hair the natural way.
Preparing the hair
The basis of any good hairstyle is healthy, clean hair and the best way to achieve that is through the use of organic natural shampoo and conditioner, ideally ones that are plastic free as well. Using products that are free from nasty chemicals and ingredients there to ‘fake’ he feel of healthy tresses significantly improves the health, feel, and look of your hair. Of course, if you don’t have time to wash and dry but you still need to look on form, then you can always use a natural dry shampoo such as these from Primal Suds to give you and extra day or two grace before you need to lather up.
Get rid of all the knots
Once you have given your hair a good shampoo and condition, you need to remove any knots or tangles. We suggest using a natural hair rinse to suit your hair type as they help to detangle, remove product build up and add shine. Frequent brushing or combing, when done properly can increase blood flow to your scalp, stimulating hair growth. It’s best to opt for a wooden or bamboo brush or comb as not only are they kinder to the environment but they are kinder on your hair as well.
Add a styling product
If your hair’s a little on the wild side, you may want to run a styling product through the ends to tame it. We have some lovely vegan styling creams, waxes and clays that come in metal tins and are totally environmentally friendly. Scented with lemongrass, cedarwood, or sandalwood, they also make your hair smell divine.
Tie it up and you are away
Once you have washed, rinsed, and combed your hair, you are ready to progress to the last step in the styling process. If you like to tie your hair up and out of the way, we stock a superb range of organic, plastic free hair ties that come in different colours to suit your hair type, or mood. Made from organic cotton and 100% biodegradable, you can sweep up your hair into your style of choice, without feeling guilty about using plastic- based products.
