We are probably all familiar with the arguments surrounding the benefits of eating organic food, but have you ever considered using organic hair care products?
Recent trends towards healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyles have led to a rise in the popularity of ‘organic’ hair care products, but are we just trying to be ‘greener’ or are there other benefits too?
So what are the benefits of using organic products?
- They are environmentally friendly. They are biodegradable and therefore are not environmentally damaging.
- They are made from natural (usually plant) ingredients, reducing the likelihood of allergies.
- Used as part of a regular regime they help cleanse hair in a gentle, healthy way.
- They are relatively cheap! You can even make some of them at home.
- They are becoming more accessible too, they can be easily sourced from both high street and online retailers.
- They are safer than mainstream hair care products as they do not contain potentially harmful chemicals. DEA (diethanolamine) is one hotly debated chemical ingredient which is used to make the shampoo lather. It is controversial because it induced liver and kidney cancer when applied to mouse skin, no one is certain about its effects on human health. Other lather creating chemicals include cocamide MEA, lauramide MEA, lauric DEA, and polysorbate-20.
- Using organic products keeps nature and organic agriculture at the forefront of working practices, waste is reduced, and our water and soil stay healthy and unpolluted.
