I've been pulling my hair out (pun intended) trying to find just a plain old shampoo without a lot of chemicals in it. You may have read my earlier blogs that had 2 favorite picks: Nature's Gate and Hair One.
Those products are great, but today I'm taking it to another level. I've learned a lot about natural oils and I'm amazed by the versatility of olive and apricot oil (now my favorite makeup remove and body oil, respectively).
So, I spent a little extra time at my local health food store found these 2 products:
Kiss My Face Castile Oil and Alaffia Hair Care.
Kiss My Face - Castile SoapTake a look at these ingredients!
Alaffia - Shea
Alaffia hair care relies on nut butters and oils. Here is a list of ingredients.
Full Ingredients: Herbal infusion of Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), Liquid African Black Soap (Distilled water, Saponified Shea (Butyrospermum parkii) Butter and Virgin Palm Kernel (Elaeis guineensis) Oil), Decyl Polyglucose (from corn), Vegetable Glycerin, Virgin Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil, Panthenol (pro-Vitamin B5), Essential Oil of Lavender, Fragrance
My hair is very coarse so I'm hopeful about this product. But it's only for hair so you don't have the versatility like the other product provides.
Either way I'm excited to try both of these products. The fewer the chemicals you put on the body, the less work your liver has to do to remove toxins from your system!
Here is an update! I've been using the Alaffia Shea and my hair is incredibly soft. My normally course dry hair feels really nice. I've been using the one made for curly hair because I like the smell of sandalwood.
