Are you still struggling with dry, parched hair? An itchy, flaky scalp? Or perhaps your locks are just lacklustre and limp? Whatever the dilemma, you’re probably still searching for THAT magic hair care product that can take your hair from drab to fab in one hair wash, are we right? In an age of complex beauty products and seriously cluttered bathroom cabinets and shower surrounds, it can sometimes pay to make things a little simpler. Nature generally has the answer to most things and has plenty to offer when it comes to making our crowning glory shine bright (like a diamond)! Here are three all-natural ingredients (and some amazing product recommendations) to take note of ASAP.
This one might surprise you. We can’t get enough of ingesting the sweet stuff on our toast, in tea but it can also go a long way when it comes to your haircare routine. Honey has been one of nature’s powerhouse remedies throughout history with its magical restorative properties. It moisturises, strengthens, cleanses and is even bacteria-fighting! It’s number 1 benefit to your hair though? Soothing dry, dull hair! Honey is a natural humectant. It draws moisture from the air and into the scalp and hair follicle resulting in long lasting, luscious hydration. It can even work overtime to smooth and conceal flaking hair shafts (split ends we see you)! We’d recommend incorporating products into your routine that are enriched with this golden nectar but a D.I.Y hair mask of the raw material can work just as well once a week. Just make sure to shampoo it out thoroughly!
Have you heard of this amazing Japanese botanical - Mekabu.? It is unofficially known as Japan’s ocean wonder botanical which is extracted from beneath the Wakame leaf (a type of edible seaweed). It’s packed with ocean rich vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iodine, and potassium to leave your hair shiny, nourished, and hydrated. You’d be forgiven for thinking that this Japanese seaweed nutrient superfood is a little tricky to get hold of. Ordinarily you’d be right, but at ORGANA Beauty we’ve made it our mission to seek out the best of the best brands that uphold our same values of naturally efficient products. Haircare is no exception and that’s why we are completely obsessed with haircare brand: MASAMI. MASAMI products are free from all nasties, against animal testing, are silicone free, vegan friendly AND safe for even the most colour-treated hair. They also just so happen to have an entire range dedicated to this wonder ingredient, creating a luxurious low foaming shampoo, seriously sumptuous conditioner, and a shine serum to add glossiness and hydration for all hair types.
(SUSTAINABLY SOURCED) COCONUT OIL
You didn’t think we could go without mentioning this one, did you?! It's a super nourishing natural oil with literally hundreds of uses. It's particularly popular in south-east Asia (think: India) and what do these places have in common? GREAT hair! What makes it so unique? Coconut oil provides the richest natural source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). These have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that are extra nourishing. Its low molecular weight and straight linear chain structure, actually reduces protein loss within the hair shaft and allows it to penetrate hair in ways that other oils are not able to. Hence amazingly quick results! If you don't fancy slathering on coconut oil from a jar, you can get using a shampoo & conditioner that has it infused. The MASAMI Mekabu hair range is absolutely perfect! Char White Writes ...soften, and protect!
