Easy Ways To Create An Eco-friendly Haircare Routine

More people are choosing eco-friendly products to care for the environment and make the switch to a healthier, more natural lifestyle. According to a recent survey, 70 percent of consumers from the US and Canada prefer products from sustainable brands. Not only are they buying organic food, but most individuals are also choosing eco-friendly bath, skincare, and beauty products. Aside from health benefits, organic products also help to reduce pollution and lessen our carbon footprint.

If you’re thinking about living a more sustainable lifestyle, one of the easiest ways to do that is to create an environmentally-friendly haircare routine. Not only will your hair and scalp benefit from it, but you’ll also be doing your part to save the planet. Read on for Easy Ways To Create An Eco-friendly Haircare Routine!

Choose Hair Products with Natural Ingredients

Most shampoos and conditioners contain sulfates and parabens, which can harm your health and the environment. Research has shown that parabens can be easily absorbed through the skin, and frequent exposure to these chemicals may contribute to the growth of breast cancer cells in women. Meanwhile, sulfates can strip your hair’s natural oils, which can result in having dry and brittle hair. If they make their way to waterways, sulfates can also increase the acidity levels of soil and water. This contributes to acid rain, which can destroy our rainforests.

Choosing hair products that contain none of these ingredients not only results in having beautiful and healthy hair, but it also allows you to do your part to reduce environmental damage. Consider using a hair product such as the Iles Formula Shampoo, which is paraben, sulfate and silicon-free. Moreover, it only contains hair and environment-friendly ingredients, such as vegetal root juices to restore your locks’ health and shine.

Use Less Product When Washing Your Hair

People think that using lots of shampoo or conditioner can be good for their hair, but all that product just goes down the drain. Being mindful about the amount of product you use while washing your hair not only saves you money but also helps to reduce your impact on the planet.

To gauge how much shampoo or conditioner you’ll need, aim for a half-dollar size of the product for long hair, and about a nickel-sized amount for short hair. Wet your hair thoroughly to activate the product, and rinse the shampoo off thoroughly before moving on to the next step.

You should also consider shampooing every three days or so, and use a moisturizing conditioner to nourish your hair and keep it looking soft luscious. Read the rave reviews on the award-winning shampoo and conditioner in the Iles Formula Signature Collection.

Choose Vegan Hair Colors

If you regularly color your hair, consider using vegan hair dye to color your tresses. Vegan hair dyes are vegetable-based and contain ingredients such as essential oils to keep your hair healthy. Also, these dyes aren’t tested on animals, and they contain no ammonia, which can dehydrate your hair. You can get semi-permanent dye which fades after about 25 washes. Or you could go for a permanent formula if you want a color that lasts and effectively covers gray hair. After dyeing your hair, apply a finishing serum to prevent color fade, such as the Iles Formula Finishing Serum Haute Performance. Not only will this paraben-free serum keep your hair looking vibrant, but it will also strengthen hair, repair split ends, and shield your hair from the harmful UV rays.
