Natural Hair Care Products - Are They For You?

Natural Hair Products have been used for many, many years and by ancient societies. Indians still use herbs like neem, shikakai, henna, bael, brahmi, aloe combined with things like sandalwood, jasmine, turmeric, and rose formulate shampoos and other hair products. Natural hair products are now starting to become more popular as people realize that anytime you use a product on your body some of it will get absorbed. They are particularly popular with pregnant women who do not want to pass on the chemicals to the unborn fetus.

Natural hair products are available more easily now but are more expensive therefore you may want to try to make them at home from scratch. There are many recipes to be found online just by searching for "natural hair product recipes". This is a whole new market out there and as I learn more I will post it on my site.

Also, if you are one that does not like too much fuss and are not attached to using a whole array of styling products, natural products are definitely for you. Natural care does not include the use of tools like straighteners or curling irons. Actually if you were to do without these heat appliances you would not need many of the styling products being marketed today. Coloring your hair, which is getting more and more popular, is also not recommended although you can find many natural coloring agents like henna.

It has been determined that, particularly damaged and colored hair greatly benefits when you fully transition to natural hair care regiment. But if you are not totally sold on natural products or if you want to ease into it try these tips first.


  • Use coconut oil or jojoba oil as a hair conditioner. Be sure to rinse completely and with cool water.

  • To tame a frizzy mane or to reduce static, put a couple of drops of olive oil in your hand and pull it through from roots to ends.

  • Any of the above oils can also be used as a deep conditioner. Put it on all your hair and scalp, cover with a plastic shower cap (for heat) and wrap with a towel. Let it penetrate for 20-30 minutes and rinse well.
