BLOG — natural shampoo transition
The 'transition phase' is something unique to natural haircare in the sense that it's often not talked about. And that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, it just means that the liquid shampoo market has done a lot ignore the fact that there are better options for haircare.
- USE THE COOL BUTTON - that blue button on your hairdryer is there for a reason, it will help to set your hair at the end of a style. Using cold air helps to close the hair cuticle and relax your hair. So make sure you cool off.
- FRIZZ FIGHTER No 1 - adding a cold rinse at the end of your shower will help to settle the frizz in your hair. Try it, we dare you.
But what do silicones have to do with natural haircare?
We're glad you asked. Having used a product with silicones prior to making the switch to natural haircare can adversely affect the time it takes to transition through to the benefits of natural haircare. The silicone will do its job by repelling moisture and locking you into that deep oily/greasy feeling. To put it simply, natural haircare is not strong enough to remove silicones from your hair and neither is an acid rinse. Natural products can not fight the power of silicone.
Are you BLONDE or SILVER? Do you sometimes find your hair turning brassy or losing its shine? Have you considered making the switch to a purple/violet shampoo?
