Want smooth, silky and shiny hair? Hair that’s strong, resilient and resistant to breakage? Then it’s time we let you in on a little secret. Go vegan!
It might sound drastic but it’s really pretty simple, and you don’t need to change your whole way of life, just the way you approach your hair.
One step toward strong, shiny hair is to adopt the philosophy of veganism and embrace plant-based wellness.
Plant-derived ingredients contain more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, so using plant-based, organic or vegan hair and skin care products can be better for your skin and hair, particularly if you have allergens or sensitive skin.
Furthermore, chemicals are excluded from organic and vegan hair care products, replacing synthetic ingredients with essential oils and natural cleaning agents to cleanse, rehydrate and repair. Plus, artificial perfumes are swapped out with the aromatic fragrance of herbs and flowers.
Organic and vegan hair products are a trend that’s rapidly growing, but it’s important not to mistake the difference between the two. Similar in benefits, vegan hair care products are free from any animal derived ingredients whereas organic hair products may still contain animal ingredients, though organically sourced.
Free from any nasties, vegan shampoos and conditioners are higher in vitamin A, C and E making hair softer and more radiant. Natural extracts, like coconut oil and aloe-vera in vegan hair conditioning treatments, help to soften and moisturise. Soy and rice proteins in vegan shampoos penetrate the hair cuticle for stronger, thicker hair.
Peppermint removes impurities, Kakadu plum protects hair from free radicals and chamomile is an anti-inflammatory. Seaweed, lavender, argan, elderflower and quinoa, and all the above powerful plant-based ingredients are used to nourish and replenish hair.
Total hair wellness can be achieved with nature, and you don’t need to be a vegan to embrace the vegan philosophy. With the rise in popularity, vegan hair products are affordable. So, go vegan, your hair will love you for it!Davroe, De Lorenzo, Juuce, and the new Nak Hair Signature Range.
