DO YOU LOVE YOUR HAIR?
Have you ever heard or felt like you needed to switch up your styling products in order to revitalize or refresh your hair?
This is a false reality that a lot of my guests share with me. Maybe a stylist in the past has told you this or maybe you've heard it from a friend or coworker. Most people know to avoid shampoos with sulfates. Sulfates are detergents that make shampoo lather, giving us the sense that our hair is being cleaned. The reality is conventional shampoos contain synthetic ingredients that coat your hair to make it look shiny and feel soft at first, while causing dryness and damage underneath. Conventional styling products include silicones, resins, plastics and other synthetics that add a slick coating or slippery feel. These give the illusion of moisture, softness and shine but over time, these are the exact ingredients that build up and create dull dry, weighed down hair.
I'd like to help you understand this even more by comparing it to the way you treat your skin. Skincare has always been super important to me and most women that I know. We go out of our way to make sure that we're using the highest quality ingredients and products on our face. We wash with special cleansers morning and evening, use treatment serums, targeted creams, lotions and even spend money on professional treatments, facials and retinols to try to slow down and reverse the signs of aging. So, I have to ask, would you wash your face with dawn dish soap and use vegetable oil (mineral oils or petroleum) as a moisturizer?
If you did use these products, over time your skin would become extremely dry which would cause you to use more oils and petroleum's to combat the dryness. Those ingredients continue to build up on your skin creating a barrier. This barrier is preventing moisture from getting in and toxins from coming out. Leading you to extremely dry, dull, flaky skin. This is the same thing that happens to your hair when you use conventional shampoos, conditioners and styling products. It may look shiny and feel soft but as the days go by you wash more frequently, add more products to your routine to combat the dryness and add shine. These products are building up on your hair layer by layer creating a barrier. If you use any heat styling tools, the heat can burn these products into your hair. Leaving you with weighted down, greasy, unmanageable, lifeless hair.
I'm constantly explaining this to guests. They love their hair when they leave to salon but go home and over time start to experience what I described above. They wash more frequently, have to use more product, spend more time on styling, and are left with undesirable results.
The ingredients in our shampoos, conditioners and styling products are so important to the vitality of our hair. As someone who has very dry, curly hair I know how hard the struggle is to find the right combination of shampoo, conditioner and products! I thought I knew what to look for in my old hair care products. I was even excited that it was cruelty free. They made it sound like the ingredients were "all natural". The website boldly states, "The power of nature. Combining natural, wildcrafted botanicals with the latest technology to meet your hair needs."
I had to wash my hair every 2-3 days. Using several different products to add shine, moisture and soften my hair on the days in between. I remember telling my guests that my hair would get dryer the longer I went in between washes, forcing me to wash it more often. Thinking back on this, it's crazy that I didn’t recognize how backwards this was! I had to wash my hair twice on wash day because of all the product that was building up from overusing oils and leave ins on a daily basis.
After a while I reached out to my curly hair friends, and they pointed me in the direction of clean organic hair care. I'm the kind of person that doesn’t make decisions without research overkill and weeks of deliberation, I’m also very particular on where I invest my hard-earned dollars. I was always hesitant to use clean organic hair care. I just didn’t think it would work and I thought it would be really expensive to maintain. Until I found Innersense Organic Beauty.
When I found Innersense it was like everything clicked for me, from the clean look of the 100% post-consumer material bottles to the inspirational affirmations on the back. Not to mention when I popped the top and smelled that sweet but subtle all-natural spa like fragrance. I was in heaven! Even the directions say take a deep breath and become centered, who doesn’t need that reminder on a daily basis. When I started using these products it changed my wash day experience! My routine went from being a frustrating chore to a spa like self-care ritual!
