All these natural hair conditoners are completely natural and contain many organic ingredients and herbal extracts. They are free of parabens, SLS, phthalates, petroleum or mineral based oils, synthetic fragrances, colours and preservatives.
You might not be sure why you need to switch to an organic hair conditioner, but if your hair feels greasy, weighed down after washing or limp even when styled, chances are you do.
Normal ‘chemical’ based hair conditioners often contain additives designed to force the hair cuticles flat, and artificially ‘create’ a shine. These are usually silicone-based. Over time this layer of plastic coats the hair. It’s not water-resistant with ease so you end up with a build up of product.
The result of which is flat, lifeless hair.
If you have a sensitive scalp, or are prone to flaking scalp or dandruff, you are especially likely to see negative effects as your skin is more reactive to residues and product build-up, especially if paired with harsh ‘surfactant’ detergent-based shampoo ingredients like Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES).
For those with coloured hair (either naturally or using box dyes), or who use a Keratin product, avoiding sulphates is especially important. Sulphates fade colour, and it only takes an average of three washes before your Keratin treatment is completely removed from the hair (1).
Our natural hair conditioners focus instead of nurturing the hair from the inside out, working with the hair’s natural structure to boost its health and vitality over time.
WHICH TYPE OF NATURAL HAIR CONDITIONER IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Most hair types benefit from a conditioner, even if it’s just applied occasionally. Day-to-day brushing, heat-styling, and tying up can all leave your locks in need of a little extra TLC. There are lots of types of hair conditioner, though which you need depends on your hair type.
This type of hair is often wiry in texture, may be static and hard to get a brush through. It snaps easily, especially if heavily styled.
A conditioner with an ingredient like Sea Buckthorn, which is deeply soothing, hydrating and nourishing.
Frizzy hair is usually prone to problems in humidity. Lots of people use tools like straighteners to reduce the frizz, but also leads to dehydration and damage, making the problem worse.
Coloured hair requires especially gentle treatment that doesn’t strip the protective natural oils to stop colour fade. If your hair is bleached, you’ll need a treatment with protein to help restore the bonds lost through the colour removal process.
A conditioner that both protects your hair and your colour. Wheat protein offers a natural alternative to those find in traditional conditioners.
Any conditioner can be problematic for fine hair, so avoid using it regularly.
Provided it isn’t coloured, often this hair fares best when just an organic natural shampoo, is used. Over time the hair begins to produce the right number of natural oils for you and bounce returns.
Grey hair is often far coarser than when it held pigment and can become unmanageable. It often needs significantly more hydration even than dry hair to help support the nutrients lost in the ageing process.
Ingredients like avocado, which are packed with water soluble fats do a brilliant job at returning some lustre and bounce to grey hair.
