Look for these ingredients in hair care products for healthier hair

Making the switch to clean hair care means moving away from harmful ingredients that damage your hair in the long run to nourishing hair and scalp friendly ingredients. Clean ingredients not only make your hair feel soft and luxurious now, they also help build the health of your hair and scalp in the long term. 

Essential oils

Natural essential oils have wonderful benefits for your hair, they are rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish and replenish hair, restoring shine and vibrancy. They penetrate deep into the hair shaft, moisturising from within for healthy, strong, revitalised hair.

What to look for:

Look for plant derived oils such as argan oil, hemp-seed oil, sunflower seed oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, jojoba seed oil, avocado oil, and peppermint oil.

Sometimes the plant will be listed in the ingredients using their scientific name, for example sunflower seed oil might be labelled as helianthus annuus seed oil. Keep an eye out and google if you’re unsure.

Plant extracts

Nature has a way of caring for your hair with an abundance of nutrients. Plant extracts are packed with antioxidants to help fight damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress, restoring the health and shine to your hair. 

They can have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial functions, lending them to be especially effective at soothing the scalp and improving overall scalp health - a necessity for healthy hair growth.
