When it comes to personal care, it can be hard to find products that have everything we need. Using natural hair care as an example, our ideal shampoo and conditioner should contain powerful natural ingredients. And high quality performance. They also need to be gentle on our wallets and sulfate-free. Oh, and they should also be scented with the perfect scent to leave our lovers repeatedly sniffing their pillows the next morning.
Let’s face it, it’s hard to fit all of these requirements into a 13-ounce bottle. That’s why 100% PURE is focused on creating the best lint-free natural hair products for maximum potency. Today, we’re going to dive deep into hair health from the scalp up, to help you find out what your hair needs and why.
Honoring the Scalp: Why a Healthy Scalp Means Healthy Hair
A scalp is to hair what soil is to plants, so naturally the scalp is where we often make our biggest hair blunders. What does your scalp say about the health of your hair? Do you suffer from severe dryness and itching? Do you blame excess oil or greasy hair texture on infrequent washing? The connection between scalp and hair is not as easy to notice as a spot or a reaction on our face, but it is easier to treat.
Each individual hair follicle grows through the scalp where it is coated in a nourishing scalp-produced oil (sebum) that can impact how healthy our hair looks and feels. Scalps that aren’t cleansed and exfoliated often enough, or scalps with skin issues like dandruff and psoriasis, are all at risk of reduced hair growth.
All those morning sessions to find our souls on the cycle are great for our bodies, but skipping a full shampoo on the way out can be a mistake. Be sure to clean regularly to remove dirt, sweat, product buildup, and rinse out leave-in products. When all of these things accumulate on your scalp, your hair follicle and hair growth will pay the price. You can also put bae to work with the scalp scraper to stimulate the scalp and help bring out the best in your scalp.
How to have healthier hair
Don’t leave hair streaks! Now that we’ve covered the scalp, it’s time to move on to highlights. It’s no secret that different hair types require different hair treatments, but all scalps benefit from some stimulation. And our two favorite ways are scalp massage and rosemary oil.
Rosemary oil has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various health issues, including hair loss and promoting hair growth. This essential oil is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can help stimulate hair growth by improving blood circulation in the scalp, promoting the supply of nutrients to hair follicles and strengthening hair strands. Rosemary oil can also help soothe itchy scalp and reduce dandruff, which can contribute to hair loss. Its antimicrobial properties can also prevent bacterial and fungal infections that can lead to scalp irritation and hair loss. Overall, regular use of rosemary oil on the scalp and hair can lead to thicker, healthier, and more vibrant hair.
Rosemary is the star ingredient in our Rosemary Growth Serum, which helps active and inactive hair follicles grow thicker and thicker within 3-6 months of regular use.
Avoid sulfates at all costs
Sulfates (known as SLS on ingredient lists) also used to be bad for the environment. SLS often requires animal testing and has been linked to long-term negative side effects affecting the eyes, lungs, and skin. Worried about missing the bubbles if you skip the sulfates? Instead, try our Virgin Coconut Honey Shampoo and Conditioner Combo for a rich, creamy lather that won’t strip or stress your hair. In this formula, we use saponified coconut oil, a fancy term that means we turn coconut oil into a moisturizing soap. It acts and feels like a sulfate with the nourishment and results of softening and smoothing coconut oil. Now it’s a win-win!
Use natural ingredients for healthy hair
100% PURE hair products focus on plant infusions and healthy floral and nut oils that create results you can see and feel. For example, our Kelp & Mint Volumizing Conditioner is ideal for those with dry hair or an itchy scalp. Kelp and Peppermint essential oil help soothe and balance for a happier scalp and longer lasting breakouts. Light rose water and mint infusion help soothe any dry or itchy scalp. Moisturizing ingredients like aloe juice and coconut oil to nourish where it’s desperately needed.
Dry and itchy scalps are often accompanied by fine or thinning hair. Rediscover luxurious locks with our vegan Grow More shampoo. Orange fiber helps thicken and strengthen strands. Coffee extract helps drive oxygen and blood flow to the scalp for faster, more visible growth. Combined with all the strengthening and stimulating B vitamins in this formula, expect massive 80s hair, minus the frizz and bad styling.
If your hair needs strong moisture, mix it up by combining our Grow More Shampoo with our Moisture Drench Conditioner. It’s the perfect ending to a “treat yourself” shower moment. This conditioner is infused with seaweed collagen. This ingredient is an antioxidant that contributes to a healthier scalp. Collagen also eliminates dryness, split ends and brittle hair by pumping hair full of the moisture it needs.
