It’s important to understand your hair’s most basic needs to keep it healthy and beautiful. There are four basic elements which contribute to healthy, lustrous and soft hair, namely: cleanse, hydrate, nourish and seal. Natural shampoo can be especially helpful for giving your hair a gentle yet thorough cleanse.
Cleansing shampoos can be used every so often to gently remove residue caused by product buildup and atmospheric pollution. Hydrating and nourishing benefits both come from shampoos, and intense treatments or sealing conditioners can be used to protect and seal the cuticle.
Switching to Natural Shampoo
If you are moving from ordinary chemical-based shampoo to organic hair care products, your first step should be to cleanse away the silicone buildup left on your hair and scalp by your previous products and styling aids. This makes it possible for your hair to receive the moisture and protein in your new natural products.
A clarifying shampoo will gently clean off any silicone residue from the hair, while an intense repairing treatment will balance the condition of the hair during this first phase, and make the transition from chemicals to organic options as smooth as possible.
After the initial cleansing period (usually 1-2 weeks), you can use a “quick on-and-off” sealing conditioner for protection. Afterwards, you can switch to longer leave-in conditioning treatments.
