Most traditional shampoo products (including those who market their products organic, when they are NOT) contain silicone derivatives, such as dimethicone and cylcomethicone, which coat your hair in what is essential plastic. It may make your hair look shiny at first, but it’s actually weighing hair down and causing damage over time. Not only do these ingredients do damage to your hair but those synthetic harmful chemicals are absorbed through the skins pores and you maybe putting yourself at risk by directly applying carcinogenic chemicals into the scalp. By doing this on a daily or regular basis you are inviting these dangerous ingredients into your system.
Switching to an organic shampoo and conditioner will help restore a healthy balance and help to revive your hair and scalp from years of harsh treatment caused by the use of commercial hair care products. It will gradually remove the silicone derivatives over time. To assist in the speed up process you can use a hair rinse that contains organic ingredients like apple cider vinegar and beneficial organic herbs for hair and scalp that will not only leave you hair clean and glossy but help to detangle the hair. Miessence hair care will work most effectively once you have removed the damaging chemical coating with a hair detox program. Try these simple steps at home achieving shiny healthy hare, naturally.
Detox with nothing but the Best!
You may experience a hair detox for the first few weeks if you have been using hair care products that contain silicone derivatives. Commercial hair care products often leave your hair coated with plastic from the silicone derivatives like dimethicone, cylcomethicone, and any chemical with ‘cone’ in it.
Using an organic shampoo like Miessence shampoos will not foam and the hair care will not work effectively until you have removed this coating by detoxing your hair first. This can be done a number of ways:
Over time - using the Miessence haircare products,
Detoxing your hair with a few baths of 1 cup sea salt, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 cups bicarb soda (hop in the bath and swish your hair around in it).
Make a paste of bicarb with Desert Flower or Lemon Myrtle Shampoo then wash your hair with it a few times.
Make a paste of clay (using one of our organic masks ) with the shampoo and washing your hair with that a few times.
Use Protect Hair Repair which will offers long lasting moisturising imparts lustre and conditions the hair.
Just remember, whilst your hair is detoxing it may feel dry and knotty which is normal as the hair is eliminating the silicone from your hair. Your hair condition will improve as these artificial chemicals are removed from your hair. Once all the silicone derivatives have been removed you will find the shampoo foams and your hair is silky soft and organically beautiful!
