Hair Care on the Cheap
Most people don't know that they're wasting money and diminishing the quality of their hair just by following the instructions on shampoo bottles!
Our hair has natural protective nutrients and emollients, and shampoo companies have made a huge business out of making products that scrub them all away and then replace them with inferior substitutes.
Did you know that over-washing your hair leads to more oil and dandruff? Did you know that tangled, fly-away hair is not fixed by oily conditioners, but rather by a mildly acidic rinse that evens out the pH balance of your hair.
So, to save money and have better-looking and healthier hair, do the following:
Over-washing your hair is a vicious cycle. Too much shampoo strips the natural oils, and our scalps work extra-hard to compensate, making more oil to wash away. Over-washing can lead to dandruff, which means special shampoos and treatments. We mistakenly believe that greasy conditioners are the remedy for tangled hair, but it just leaves more stuff to wash away next time. Shampoos and conditioners leave residue on our hair, which needs to be washed away. Small changes can save you money and improve the health and texture of your hair!
