Bad hair day

As you are now aware I am a strong believer that chemicals in beauty products are the route of all evil when it comes to my skin and eczema. I have a confession to make......none of my current hair care products are "chemical" free. 

I have tried brands such as A'kin, Lavera, MOP, Aveda, Organix and Matrix Delicate Care. They all have pros and cons but none of them have me repeat purchasing. For me the main problem with SLS free shampoo and conditioner has been poor performance. My hair seems to rebel against my good efforts and becomes lank and greasy or extremely dry. Before you shout at me, I have used them for long periods of time as I know the old chemicals need to leave your hair before you see the results from an SLS free product.

A friend recently gave me the Pureology Supersmooth range to try. Pureology is sulfate free, 100% vegan and 100% organic botanicals. Wow this stuff is amazing. It leaves my hair smooth and silky and my hairdresser even commented on how great it looked. It smells fabulous and does not irritate my scalp or neck. The downside for me is the price, my budget does not allow for me to spend £30 on shampoo & conditioner. So for the time being I will continue using salon brands until I can find a range of natural shampoo and conditioners within my budget. 

Does anyone have a recommendation? I would be interested to hear your thoughts on "chemical free" hair care.

  1. Have you tired Moo Goo? It is an Australian brand that is made out of cows milk, with very little chemicals. I haven't used it but heard a lot of good things about the brand.

  2. @Su thanks for the recommendation, Australian products are always really good (I lived in OZ for a short time many years ago). I have taken a quick look at the website & this looks like a very interesting brand also looks like you can get in UK. I am going to pass this one to friends, not sure if I could use it as I have a milk allergy.
