Being natural gives you the opportunity to experiment with a diverse range of products. For instance, I was unaware of Apple cider vinegar hair rinse until going natural. Apple Cider Vinegar is an old natural remedy for conditioning.
Apple Cider Vinegar helps to remove build up from oils & styling products.
It strengthens the hair shaft and balances the PH level of the hair, and;
Increases blood circulation thus promoting hair growth.
Now your reaction might be: “you don’t shampoo! Now that’s just gross!”
I’ve always believed that if we knew half the truth about a lot of cosmetics we buy, it would undoubtedly change our outlook.
Recently Johnson & Johnson were in the news for having “chemicals of concern” [human carcinogens] in their iconic baby shampoo. While all the focus is on their baby shampoo nothing is being said about their Aveeno and Neutrogena brands, which still contain harmful toxins.
The ancient Egyptian queen, Nefertiti, credited her beauty to shea butter. Today, walking along the aisles of drug stores and grocery departments one cannot help but notice the amount of cosmetics & general skin care products that contain shea butter as an “active” ingredient. While it may seem as though these products have a large quantity of shea butter, they don’t. Although this is what we are intended to think. Ingredients are listed in descending order of percentage, and quite often it is only a small fraction that’s present.
