We continue with the theme of vegan beauty products. In the previous blogs we have featured face masks to achieve healthy and glowing skin, rose infused skincare and the classic red lipstick.
Here we take a look at natural and vegan friendly haircare products. It’s always been quite tricky to look after my hair as the texture is naturally coarse and frizzy which can be hard to style and tame at the best of times. When I was younger my hair was thick, long, curly and in good condition but over time it has become fine and the curls have turned more into waves along with having a sensitive scalp. It can be quite difficult to find products which are good for my scalp and the texture of my hair. As time has gone by, I have been a lot more conscious about the ingredients in the products I use and if it has an impact on the overall condition.
I’ve cut down a lot on using hair styling appliances such as the hairdryer and curling tongs to allow my hair to dry naturally. Especially with spending more time at home due to the lockdown it’s been good to give my hair a break from the heat and to restore it to a better condition. With the hair salons being closed its been important to use hair products that will protect and keep up the condition of our hair.
Lets take a look at a selection of hair products which are vegan friendly and good for your hair….
