When you’re making the switch to safer products, my clients either go one of two ways… They’re so concerned about what’s in their conventional products (and they have the budget), so they do a complete overhaul of everything.
OR you replace one thing at a time as each item runs out. While for your health I’d prefer the first route, this second route is definitely the more budget-friendly way to go.
Shampoo & Conditioner are typically really not great for you… Traditional chemical-laden shampoos can strip your hair of its natural oils. Natural, safe hair care can actually restore your hair to its healthiest state!
If you’re making the switch to safe hair care products for the first time, there may be a transition time… Traditional hair care products can disrupt the pH balance of your scalp, so after switching to safe hair care products some people report an overproduction of oil for about the first week. Be patient! It will eventually all balance out! I LOVE the look and feel of my hair now that it is fully accustomed to the safe hair care products I love!
So here’s my list of safe hair care products that are EWG Verified!
My very favorite safe hair care products that are EWG Verified and that I’m using right now are Beautycounter’s Smooth & Control Shampoo and Conditioner! Formulated specifically for unruly hair, this collection is infused with wild cotton extract, which helps smooth and increase elasticity for healthy hair, plus California blue agave complex to hydrate within and strengthen the outside. All products have an herbal, floral scent and are safe for color-treated hair.
I have super thick hair that tends to frizz, so this collection is perfect for my hair! It can be oily if your hair isn’t thick, frizzy, wavy, or curly, so look below for another Beautycounter option!
This Beautycounter Volume and Shape Shampoo Conditioner collection is perfect for those with fine hair or those that want an extra lift! It features hibiscus plant proteins to give a boost of weightless volume. All products are lightly scented with a fresh citrus scent and are safe for color-treated hair.
