Realizing Health Through Our Hair
Even though the majority of us no longer style our hair using OJ canisters to make big bouncy curls and RAVE hairspray to keep it all in place we still spend fortunes each year on products that are equally damaging to our locks and health.
The products we use on our hair greatly impacts not only our hair’s health but also our body. Our hair also can indicate our overall health.
When it comes to taking care of our hair the products we choose matters. Like other other areas of our health, it is possible to reduce toxic load through the products we apply and revamp our hair’s health while still realizing beautiful results.
Shampoo & Conditioner
There are a multitude of products on the market for cleaning our hair. Every scent, ingredient and benefit can be realized from selecting the right shampoo and conditioner.
For many of us, purchasing shampoo and conditioner at a salon or big chain store is common. The off the shelf brands have come a long way to improving the quality of their products so most consumers can get a decent shampoo without the salon price. The problem however is most of the products sold contain parabens, dyes and other ingredients that are terrible for your hair. Parabens are preservative chemicals that give products a longer shelf life.
The CDC reports they do not know the impact that paraben exposure has on our health!
Yet every day millions of people unknowingly wash their hair and their children’s hair with these chemicals that could be making us sick.
Switching to a paraben free product is a wise investment. There are many options available including an all natural option from doTERRA that contains their 100% pure essential oils.
Often when you use higher quality products on your hair, you end up needing less product to clean and style your hair. This makes the products last longer and in most cases the cost comes out pretty close to what you were paying for off t
