Natural Hair Care at Suvarna
Natural hair care products can offer many benefits over the standard water + sulphate + salt shampoos or silicone-slick conditioners and styling products. These mass-produced commercial products make us look good in the short term, but can cause longer term damage to scalp and hair health.
The best natural haircare is formulated with ingredients that are both kind to your skin & hair and rich in nourishing botanicals such as plant oils and herbal extracts. For example, look out for glucosides as the cleansing agent in shampoos, and plant oils such as coconut, avocado, and jojoba high up on the ingredients list, as well as plant extracts like nettle, aloe vera and horsetail.
Such ingredients don’t strip the natural oils (or colour!) from your hair like conventional products do. Instead, they provide hydration and nutrients to put the shine and bounce back in your locks.
It’s often people with sensitive skin who can tell the difference first when they make the switch to natural hair care. They find their scalp is soothed, and irritation, dryness and flakiness gradually stops. And the benefit to everyone of natural hair care is how great your hair will start to look – soft, not weighed down and healthy-looking. Good natural hair care really does perform!
The presence of (often organically grown) botanical ingredients and absence of harsh chemical cleansers means that natural haircare is better for the environment too. Certified natural or certified organic hair care is not allowed to contain any ingredients that aren’t biodegradable or otherwise damage the environment.
But with so much greenwashing going on, how do you know what is a genuine natural hair care product? Here at Suvarna, we have a carefully selected list of brands that as a minimum have natural certification from e.g. the BDIH or Cosmos. Many of our hair care products also have organic certification. So you can trust that what you buy from us will have been carefully checked – both by us and an independent certification body - to make sure it is free from silicone, SLS, parabens and all the other chemicals you’d like to avoid in your hair care.
At an entry level we offer Lavera, Logona and Sante which are certified natural hair care products. It’s Pure, Aubrey Organics and Odylique are entirely sulphate free and are certified organic hair care products.
All brands offer really good shampoos, hair masks and conditioners that are 100% natural origin. For natural hair dye, choose from Logona, Sante and It’s Pure. And for natural hair styling products, Sante and Eco Cosmetics offer a great range. We also offer specialist products such as Logona’s pre-colour treatment.
Many of the natural hair care products at Suvarna have won awards, including Odylique’s iconic Gentle Herb Shampoo, the go-to shampoo for sensitive scalps which has won a prestigious Free From Skincare Achievement award.
Remember that when you switch to natural hair care, it can take your hair and scalp a little time to adjust. Allow 2 weeks to see the full benefits.
