Summer means long beach days and salty, sandy beach hair- the BEST kind of hair if you ask us! But while we love the salt and sun, it can leave hair dry and brittle and sometimes your locks need some extra TLC this time of year! Mainstream treatments and masks contain a number of chemical nasties, which can actually do the opposite of nourishing your hair! That’s right! Luckily! There are some INSANE hair serums and treatments that use natural, organic ingredients to nourish the hair and scalp and which are sure to help a sister protect her tresses this summer!
WHY USE NATURAL AND ORGANIC HAIR CARE?
Sulfates, parabens and even silicones are often used in haircare products and can cause irritation, organ toxicity, endocrine disruption and may even be carcinogenic! The skin on our scalp absorbs these nasties straight into our blood streams and this is even more worrying when talking about masks and serums that stay in the hair for long periods of time!
