Moving to natural haircare? Have you heard about the 'transition phase'?

Moving to natural haircare? Have you heard about the 'transition phase'?

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.

Over the past year, as we've been building our brand and learning about making the switch to natural haircare - we've been asking for feedback on our bars. This is absolutely crucial for us, because whilst we know that we have an amazing natural alternative shampoo, we also know that making the switch is not always quick and easy for some as it is for others.

  2. 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.

Put your hand up if you've scored an extra day without washing your hair by just adding a little dry shampoo into your roots? 
Since their eruption into the haircare market, dry shampoos have been an easy way to stretch out a couple of extra days between washes. They work by helping to dry up excess oil in your roots and giving the appearance of cleaner fresher hair. Why wouldn't we want it?

Does my shampoo have silicone in it? And how do I get it out?

Does my shampoo have silicone in it? And how do I get it out?

 

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.
