Update: Natural and Organic Haircare Routine 2017

Update Natural and Organic Haircare Routine 2017
Things have changed a little bit since I last wrote one of these hair care updates back in October 2016. I'm still faithful to my Odylique Gentle Herb Shampoo and Naturtint hair colour but I've switched out my conditioner and styling products.

I started to believe that my beloved Desert Essence Red Raspberry conditioner was causing irritation. Every time I switched it out my scalp felt better. I have no idea why this happened or whether it was just temporary but I decided to find a replacement. I eventually settled on Madara Colour & Shine Conditioner. I'm on my second tube so that goes to show how much I am enjoying the results. I don't use very much of this conditioner because I find it nourishes my fine hair easily. I like that my hair can feel soft but without weighing it down.

My little bottle of Evolve Nourishing Elixir which featured many times in posts has now been upgraded to a full size. I truly do think it's a great addition in my routine. I don't necessarily apply after every wash but I make sure I use it at least once a week. I use 2-3 drops on damp hair, through the middle to ends and it never leaves my hair weighed down. I believe in the long run this helps maintain softness and keeps my hair free from frizz.

I moved away from Giovanni styling products simply because I had the opportunity to test something different and it stuck. The John Masters Organics Green Tea & Calendula Leave-In Conditioning Mist has grown on me over time. At first I thought it wasn't doing much but my hair isn't a frizzy mess so I trust it's protecting in the long run. As the mist is very fine I haven't noticed build up. I'm still not the biggest fan of the scent but it doesn't linger once my hair has been dried and styled.

What's your hair care routine? Are my favourites something which you have tried and liked?

  1. Haircare products are the thing I've experimented with the most, looking for the perfect products became my goal.

  2. Hit "publish" too soon! Through much trial and error I alternate between Sevi Vegan Pumpkin Seed Shampoo and Avalon Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (only wash twice per week so use each once per week). The latter is a surprise to me because my scalp is incredibly sensitive and can feel itchy and burn with most everything. I don't understand why a product with tea tree oil wouldn't be a disaster. On the contrary, it seems to soothe my scalp. For conditioning I use Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! when I need a bit more moisture and 100% Pure Kelp and Mint Conditioner either after the Briogeo or on its own. It is the perfect product for my hair, light moisture without weighing it down. I sing its praises to anyone who will listen. My hair is dry and fine and really looks a mess with the wrong products. Since my scalp is sensitive I can only use cool or cold water to shampoo or condition. If I use warm or hot water I itch for days and am miserable. The Avalon Shampoo once a week keeps my scalp in good shape and reduces itching and flaking. For a leave-in the Yarok spray meant for ends works throughout my hair and soothes my scalp. For styling I use the Boucleme gel because it doesn't trigger any reaction. I wish the hold was a bit firmer but I'm OK with it.

    1. I'm the same with the water temperature it has to be on the cooler side. Sounds like you have a good little routine of products on the go which is great to hear :)
