What to expect when switching to natural haircare
There’s no better feeling than waking up to a good hair day. Especially when that good hair day is all thanks to natural ingredients. Because for the formula detectives out there looking to do their bit for the environment, making the switch to natural haircare is a no brainer.
But it’s also important to know that the journey to swishy, shiny, au naturale hair is a process. So don’t expect things to magically change overnight.
Instead, here’s exactly what you can expect...
You’ll have less of a lather
The first thing people tend to notice when trying natural haircare for the first time is the lather. A natural shampoo won’t foam as much as they don’t contain harsh sulphates. However, don’t be fooled into thinking you need to use more to compensate. Instead, follow the instructions and use some water to help it lather, taking care to massage it into the scalp.
For those with fine or limp hair (and a fear of it being weighed down), Sukin’s Volumising Shampoo is a great match. It’s lightweight and purifying for that fullness you love, with a naturally derived blend of pineapple, mango and papaya extracts to nourish the scalp.
Your hair needs time to detox
Just like eating one salad can’t immediately make you ‘healthy’, one wash with natural haircare isn’t going to get you crowning glory results.
Your hair and scalp need time to detox and rebalance, which can take some time (depending on how frequently you wash). It’s for this reason you should try Sukin’s #10washchallenge before making your mind up.
After a few washes you’re likely to find your hair begins to rebalance, with less oil at the roots and more moisture towards the ends – exactly how it should be. A little commitment is worth it when making the switch.
Switching to natural haircare includes styling and treatments too
Your hair routine extends beyond shampoo and conditioner, and so too does natural haircare. From scalp scrubs to masques and treatment oils, there are plenty of plant-powered options to suit your hair type and needs.
One that’s particularly handy during the transition period to natural products is Sukin’s Volumising Thickening Spritz. This one you can apply from roots to ends on damp, towel-dried hair, before blow-drying for a little extra natural va-va-voom.
