Why am I talking about Detoxing? You are probably hearing a lot about Detoxing your hair and scalp these days. It seems to be everywhere I look. And there is good reason for it.
Our wonderful Curly Girl Method was introduced to help all types of Curls, in the time since I first learned about it, there have been many variations and lots of new products.
Not all products are the same. Some ingredients are very clean (i.e. nontoxic, check out the app Think Dirty to see what your products rate!) others... not so much. Some products are created to be water-soluble, so that they easily rinse from your scalp/curls without harsh detergents... others, not so much. And remember, the best product for your curls is WATER!🗝💦⏳ Remember to use plenty of water while cleansing and conditioning!
Detoxing is the process of removing toxins. There are several benefits from a Detox and it can be done with some things you may already have at home. Here are just a few of the benefits 1. Gets rid of toxin build-up to promote healthy new growth. 2. Improves scalp circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to roots of hair. 3. Helps regenerate hair cells. 4.Unclogs hair follicles so hair can grow without any hindrance. 5. Gets rid of dryness, flakiness and scalp irritation. 6. Helps with scalp acne 7. Most importantly improves the health of your scalp which is the bedrock of your hair follicles. If you are dealing with a lot of buildup along with chemicals and mineral deposits, you may want to opt for something a bit stronger. Malibu C is a product line that offers several options from shampoos to Hard Water Remedy to Crystal Gel packets. They are curly girl approved, vegan and cruelty free, which makes them an excellent choice for many!
So here is a great article from the Hair Buddha on how to detox at home. And if you're like me and want a simple, grab and go product, you can reach for Innersense Organic Harmonic Healing Oil. This is becoming my new favorite, can-do-anything, heals cuts/sunburns, acts as a sunscreen and yes, detoxes your scalp and hair!!
❤️Love Your Curls❤️
