While the term ‘beauty’ has become more inclusive with time, good hair health has always been appreciated by communities across the world. But as we mature, managing hair could get difficult due to medications, pollution, hormonal imbalance, & other genetic and medical reasons. This also happens due to certain missteps in our everyday hair care regimen, which can turn hair limp, thin, and prone to thinning.
Let’s find out what are these mistakes and how we can manage with organic dosha-based hair care treatment:
#1. Washing Hair Too Often
Most of us know that washing hair too often can strip away the natural oils and damage the outer cuticles. But, another important fact is, it can also trigger the oil glands in our scalp to release more oil and make fine hair appear greasier.
Therefore, the best way is to wash hair with a good quality organic cleanser (that supports your hair type) not more than 3X times a week.
- For fine, thin, and limp hair, use our Volumizing Shampoo that delivers both shine and volume.
- For dry, brittle, frizzy and curly hair, use our Revitalizing Shampoo that not only revitalizes without stripping oils but also helps eliminate split ends.
- For all other hair types, we recommend using our Everyday Shampoo that gently cleanses and restores strong, healthy and glossy hair.
All our shampoos are color safe, concentrated and completely toxin free.
#2. Caring for the Scalp
For good hair health, caring for the scalp is important. As dirt, dead skin, sebum and product build-up can weigh down hair, and also be the reason behind thinning of hair, it’s important to keep the scalp clean. Always use pH-balanced products that are made of natural/organic botanicals, cold-pressed oils, and a sulfate-free base (like African Black Soap).
#3. Using Styling Products and Tools
If you have hair that often looks frizzy and feels damaged, you’re likely using too much product. Many of us also go overboard with heat styling tools and use commercial hair gels and creams that contain chemicals. In the long run, this could also be the reason for hair fall, hair thinning, and split ends.
For both styling as well as good hair care, we recommend you to try out our Puraveda Leave-in Conditioning Non-Residue Styling Gel that gives you that light hold without any chemicals. Free of silicone and petroleum-derivatives, the organic styling gel adds volume and hydration and enhances manageability.
#4. Overdoing the Conditioner
A conditioner helps to restructure damaged hair and give a smooth look to the strands. Skipping this important step after shampooing can be the reason behind dry, frizzy hair and split ends.
Always make sure to use a silicone & chemical-free organic conditioner, made with natural cold-pressed organic oils that naturally make hair manageable without leaving any chemical residue.
While choosing a conditioner, use the one from the same hair care line. Shampoos and conditioners from the same family increase the scalp and hair care benefits and give optimum efficiency.
Our organic conditioners should be applied from mid-shaft towards the end and never on the scalp. Massage a small amount through your hair, leave in for 1-3 minutes (depending upon your hair density) and rinse.
After washing and conditioning, rubbing vigorously with a towel can seriously roughen the cuticles. Instead, gently pat your hair and loosely wrap for the best results.
#5. Improving Softness, Shine & Hair Protection
Our hair is constantly exposed to sun and pollution and using our Shine On Serum is the best way to minimize damage and improve manageability. The highly concentrated formula is made with extra virgin Olive Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Hempseed Oil, and several wild gathered florals and botanicals that nourish and leave a long-lasting luxurious feel.
Besides this, pH balancing plays a crucial role for strong hair and a healthy scalp. Here’s what you need to learn about the fine art of balancing pH of hair and why it matters…
