Happy Spring, I’m so glad winter is over! Its weather was so unkind not only to my skin but to my hair as well – it feels much more frizzy and dry. Of course, lightening my hair didn’t help 🙈 So, I wanted to share three organic haircare treatments that I’m using to keep my locks as healthy as possible. Needless to say, a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner is a must, but I believe this trio also helps to keep my hair relatively frizz-free and looking normal.
First, I want to mention the Yarok Feed My Ends Organic Leave-in Conditioner. I’m not going to elaborate on this too much because I already have a review that I wrote several years ago. I keep repurchasing it occasionally in full size and in travel sizes as well. It’s a nice, light leave-in conditioner, best suitable for finer, thinner hair. It’s perfect if you don’t want to weigh your hair down but get some moisture and protection. I mostly use it for heat protection when blow-drying or straightening hair.
Whoever thought of this name for the Fushi Really Good Hair Oil* was a genius! It sounds amusing and, to be honest, it’s not far from the truth. If you enjoy using oil hair masks and treatments in your hair care routine, you’d like this oil a lot. If you have never used an oil mask though, you’ve been missing out on a lot, my friend.
The Really Good Hair Oil is a blend of the most raved and loved oils, including coconut oil, avocado oil, Moroccan argan oil and other all organic, high-quality oils. It’s also packed with herbs Brahmi and neem, known for their hair strengthening properties. The oil is recommended for dry, dehydrated and damaged hair; however, I’m sure, that all hair types would benefit from it.
The oil can be used as a pre-wash treatment (30 minutes or longer) or as an overnight treatment. I’ve tried it both ways, and it works great! However, I mostly use it as an overnight treatment because I tend to wash my hair in the morning, so I don’t always have time to wait for 30 minutes. My hair looks noticeably less frizzy and shiny after I use it. It can be applied on a scalp, but you’ll need to carefully wash it out afterward.
I was thinking long and hard what to write about this Naturtint Anti-ageing CC Cream. It’s marketed as a treatment to combat the signs of hair aging and protect hair from heat, UV and pollution damage. At first, I just didn’t get how a haircare product can be anti-aging. I mean, I know hair goes grey but would it reverse the grey? I didn’t think so. It turns out, it’s all about keratin. Our body loses keratin, and this treatment is supposed to restore it. This makes hair stronger, healthier and therefore more resilient to external damage. I still don’t think it should be called anti-aging, but it’s a nice leave-in cream. I don’t notice any dramatic changes, but it does keep my frizz under control a bit, and I notice some shine too. I don’t think I will repurchase it though.
