6 ways to Green Your Hair care
When seeking out green hair care products, start by checking the label. Look for products that swap environmentally and health-damaging petrochemicals for natural, plant-based ingredients. Also look for certifications verifying that the product you choose is organic and/or cruelty-free. Next, consider the packaging: shampoo bars with minimal packaging and products in bottles made from recycled materials will decrease the amount of waste and pollution associated with your beauty regimen. Finally, when you visit the salon, find one that uses natural products and employs water- and energy-saving practices.
Shampoo bars are the ultimate waste-minimizers when it comes to shampoo: no plastic bottle required! And they are often made from plant-based, organic ingredients, maximizing the green yield of your hair-cleansing routine.
Control frizz and otherwise misbehaving follicles with natural, plant-based, organic ingredients.
Whether you're looking for a just a trim or a full-service wash/cut/style, check out a hair salon that uses nontoxic products and follows sustainable business practices.
Swap the petrochemical-based shampoo for one that instead contains natural extracts, oils, and essences, many of which are cruelty-free and organic.
Don't use chem-laden, polluting hair dyes that contain peroxides, ammonia, and other synthetic ingredients. Color your hair green (not literally, of course) by using natural alternatives.
Avoid collecting small bottles of shampoo and other hair care products. Super-size your initial shampoo purchase and then refill the large bottle as needed.
