Why Switch to Natural Haircare?
Natural hair care products are kinder to your hair as they contain naturally derived ingredients that are gentler on your skin and better for your scalp.
When looking to switch to natural hair care products such as ourJuniper & Peppermint Nourishing Shampoo and Bergamot & Rosemary Nourishing Conditioner we recommend to begin with looking for products that contain plant based essential oils and are sls (sodium laureth sulfate), silicone and paraben free.
Here’s 4 reasons why you should make the switch.
1. Healthier Hair
A wide variety of non-natural hair care products contain ingredients such as silicone that seal the hair follicles preventing moisture from getting in. By sealing the hair non-natural formulations can achieve a smoother and more silky look but at the expense of weighing it down and leaving hair dull and prone to breakage. Natural hair care products with nourishing plant based ingredients and oils help moisturise the hair instead of just coating it.
Sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) is a synthetic ingredient that is added to non-natural shampoos to make it foam. This foaming agent leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean – but – over time strips your scalp and hair leaving them irritated, dry and damaged. Natural hair care products that don’t contain sls gently cleanse the scalp and hair without stripping them of their natural oils.
3. Stronger Hair
If your hair is thin, brittle or prone to breakage switching to natural ingredients can help strengthen follicles and restore shine. Natural hair care is often rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins to feed hair with the essential nutrients it needs to grow. Our Salus hair care products use ingredients such as wheat proteins, hydrating aloe, sesame and soybean oils, and rosemary leaf extract with no filler ingredients to weigh hair down.
4. Better for the Environment
Most Australian made natural haircare products use more sustainable packaging and source their ingredients locally. The Salus haircare range is manufactured in Australia reducing its impact on carbon emissions. The bottles and boxes are also manufactured in Australia and are RPET – meaning they are produced from a percentage of recyclable packaging and also recyclable.
When formulating new hair care products at Salus we don’t include silicones, sulphates or parabens giving our customers the best chance to create beautiful, healthy hair. When switching to a natural haircare range it’s also important to remember that it may take a few months to reap the benefits of natural ingredients – but when you do your hair will be more defined and better nourished.
