The Benefits Of Using All-natural Shampoo

The Benefits Of Using All-natural Shampoo
Gemma / February 22, 2023

In addition to being free of harsh chemicals, all-natural shampoo is also effective in cleansing the scalp and hair, and providing essential nutrients to the hair follicles. All-natural shampoo is also typically more affordable than conventional shampoo, and is gentle enough for daily use.

There are many different recipes for all-natural shampoo, but the basic ingredients are usually the same. The most common ingredients in all-natural shampoo include:

Water: Water is the base of all-natural shampoo, and helps to dilute the other ingredients.

Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS): SLS is a natural surfactant, which helps to create the lather in all-natural shampoo. SLS is derived from coconut oil, and is considered to be safe for use on the skin and scalp.

Coconut oil: Coconut oil is a natural emollient, which helps to moisturize the scalp and hair. Coconut oil is also effective in reducing dandruff and promoting hair growth.

Castile soap: Castile soap is a natural, gentle soap made from olive oil. Castile soap is effective in cleansing the hair and scalp, without stripping away natural oils.

Essential oils: Essential oils are used for their fragrance, and can also help to promote hair growth and reduce dandruff. Some of the most common essential oils used in all-natural shampoo include lavender, rosemary, and tea tree oil.

All-natural shampoo is a great alternative to conventional shampoo, and can be used daily to cleanse and nourish the hair and scalp.

In addition to being gentle on your hair and scalp, all-natural shampoo can also help to improve the overall condition of your hair. All-natural shampoo is also free from harsh chemicals and other artificial ingredients that can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle.

If you are looking for an all-natural shampoo that will give your hair the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and strong, look no further than Nourish Organic Shampoo. Nourish Organic Shampoo is made with all-natural ingredients, including aloe vera, jojoba oil, and chamomile, that work together to nourish and condition your hair.

In addition to being an all-natural and organic shampoo, Nourish Organic Shampoo is also sulfate-free, which means it will not strip your hair of its natural oils. Sulfates are harsh chemicals that are often used in shampoos to create a foaming action. However, sulfates can also strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. Nourish Organic Shampoo is also safe for color-treated hair, so you can use it without worrying about damaging your hair.

If you are looking for an all-natural and organic shampoo that will give your hair the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and strong, try Nourish Organic Shampoo.


Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes The Natural Way

Although on first glance the picture above may look like I’m about to get my hands dirty and do a spot of painting, that is definitely not the case. In fact, instead of getting brushes caked in paint, I’m going to talk about my natural, greener and ultimately cleaner method to clean your makeup brushes with. I know everyone’s recently been talking about Dr Bronners soap which I’ll be the first to hold my hands up and say that I’ve never tried, but for the past 6 months this has been my chosen method of brush cleansing.

Coconut oil is my brush cleaning product of choice, yes that old chap and yet another thing you can use it for. I use Fushi’s Virgin Organic Coconut Oil and like to pop a small amount of of it onto the palm of my hand and then swirl my brushes in it. All the dirt, grime and yesterdays eyeshadow will come straight off and once left to dry your brushes will be super soft and ready to use on your face. What’s more, coconut oil has antibacterial properties in it which makes it an ideal candidate for brush cleansing and if it can easily remove my fake tan, removing makeup from a brush is child’s play.

Haircare, The Review

Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

Gemma / February 16, 2013

I’ve always loved coconut, it all started at a young age when I found The Body Shops Coconut Hair Shine amongst my mums hair care products. I smelt it, tested it on my hair and begged her to let me keep it. After that my coconut obsession grew and I repurchased the same product for 6 years straight and on and off for a further 3 after that. Nowadays I tend to find coconut products a little harder to find, especially products that don’t smell too artificial. That’s where Dr Organic comes in… 

Dr Organic is a natural and organic company with an extensive range of products that do not contain harsh chemicals, animal ingredients, mineral oils and do not test on animals. I picked up the Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner (as well as the Coconut Oil Body Wash to ensure I was coconutified head to toe).

The first thing I should probably mention about this shampoo and conditioner is the smell. If you’ve ever been on holiday and had that man come round on the beach with fresh coconuts who chops them open then and there for you, that’s what this shampoo and conditioner smell like. That fresh, true coconut scent that I think is absolutely beautiful, no nasty artificial smell in sight (or sniff!). The Virgin Coconut Oil shampoo and conditioner are the 2nd natural shampoo and conditioner I have tried, the first being Naked Colour Protecting shampoo and conditioner (review here). The Dr Organic shampoo is the more purifying of the two, really giving my hair a deep clean without stripping any of my colour. The conditioner is also a lot thicker than the Naked Colour Protecting one, with a consistency much like that of a body butter rather than a body lotion. This is something I prefer as I have thick colour treated hair and I feel like the Virgin Coconut Oil conditioner does a much better job at conditioning my locks without the need to apply a leave in conditioner or hair oil afterwards. The Naked shampoo and conditioner do make my hair a little more shiny than Dr Organic’s offerings, but this also means that I have to wash my hair more regularly and as someone who only likes to wash their hair 3 times a week, that’s something I’m not particularly a fan of.

In comparison to the shampoo and conditioner by Naked that I previously tried and loved at the time, the Dr Organic Coconut range is by far the better option in my opinion. Not only does it smell amazing, the shampoo also lathers well for a natural product and both the shampoo and conditioner leave my hair feeling clean, lightweight, silky soft and moisturised. Furthermore, it does this without using ingredients that non-natural hair products use to give the impression of healthy hair such as silicones. The Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil shampoo and conditioner don’t just fool you into thinking you have healthy hair by covering it with ingredients that only coat the hairs shaft, the ingredients used really do penetrate the core of each hair strand, allowing you to truly have healthy hair rather than just thinking you do.

The Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil shampoo and conditioner is available in Holland and Baratt stores and online for £5.49 a 265ml bottle.
