Clean Non-Toxic Hair Care Products
It's important to be selective with what you put in your hair to keep it healthy. The brands and products below have been in my current rotation for the past couple months and years. There are a variety of products that can be used for various hair textures for both women and men. These products will nourish and condition your hair while smoothing flyaways to reduce frizz. I've also been drawn to oils for so many reasons, but to support healthy hair was on top of the list. With that said, I'm excited to share more about the brand, dae , whose Prickly Pear Hair Oil I use, which you can learn more about below ( or by clicking the photo above - after you read the below, ofcourse! ).
Since using these clean, non-toxic brands and products, my hair has never been smoother or healthier. I also majorly contribute my plant based focused lifestyle and good gut health to good hair.
But, if you are not plant based, the following foods are great for healthy hair and hair growth: eggs, berries, spinach, fatty fish ( salmon, herring, mackerel ) spinach, avocados, almonds, sunflower seeds, sweet yellow peppers, oysters, shrimp, black beas, soybeans.
I usually wash my hair every 2-3 days (sometimes longer) for proper regulation of natural hair oils. Washing your hair less often will also help regain your hair's natural body and luster. I've included 2 of my favorite shampoo and conditioners below. I love Ursa Major and I've recently started using Act + Acre for the past couple months and have really been loving that as well. Act + Acre also makes an amazing Cold Pressed Scalp Detox which I talk about more below and highly recommend!
And without further adieu, here are the brands and products below that have been in my current rotation.....
Infused with the sweet aroma of a blossoming prickly pear cactus, this hair oil is a multi purpose miracle worker. Use it as a super-smooth finish on dry hair, breakage remedy on damp hair, or overnight hydration treatment. Then go one step further and employ its desert magic to transform dry patches into moisturized skin. Dae Prickly Pear Hair Oil only contains natural colors and should be stored out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
Another reason why I love and support the brand, dae is because:
For every dae product purchased, they donate 15.8 gallons of water to charity: water a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean water to developing countries. While access to this basic need may seem like a given, 785 million people live without it. charity:water works with local experts and community members to find the most sustainable solution to delivering safe drinking water, in turn helping to improve each population’s overall health and economy.
I put this product in my hair when it's wet and I apply it before and a little after I curl it too. It holds my hair, freshens it and still gives it soft movement.
This protective hair oil and hydrating moisturizer that doubles as a perfume does it all. A fusion of rose hip oil, shea oil, and absinthium oil restores moisture, adds a dewy glow, silences frizz, and leaves you smelling like OUAI's velvety-rich rose fragrance Melrose Place Eau de Parfum.
To give you a bit of an idea of the scent, the Melrose Place Eau de Parfum is scented with rose, bergamot, lychee, cedarwood (helps with hair strength) and white musk.
I'm not the only one in love with Ursa Major's "Go Easy" Shampoo and Conditioner. The ZOE Report called it "a total groundbreaker" and I couldn't agree more! This sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner thoroughly cleans and conditions your hair without stripping it of its natural oils and helps promote a healthy scalp. The shampoo is made with balsam and macadamia and the conditioner is made with jojoba and sandalwood. It works great for all hair types and is formulated for both men and women.
Act and Acre's Cold Pressed Scalp Detox has entirely improved my scalp health, which in turn strengthens the hair follicle. My hair is healthier now, more than it ever has been. I also majorly contribute my plant based focused lifestyle and good gut health to good hair. I also love their shampoo and conditioner as well.
