Natural hair care for every type and texture of hair

Hairs are a natural headdress in any culture. Hairstyling is an expression of personality. Hairstyles are used as a sign of rebellion and as a sign of religious affiliation. Some are followers of a certain scene or music genre, identify with punk, gothic or rap and take a stand by their hairstyle. Depending on the culture, the hairstyle has a significant symbolism. From the bald head to dreadlocks to the mane, they refer to ethnicity, social situation, civil status, age group, caste, class and mythology.

Zero waste hair care products

Recyclable packaging, even better not packed care products are a necessity in today's world. Manufacturers of natural cosmetics and organic cosmetics choose plastic bottles made from recyclate or recyclable glass bottles for their hair care products. The smallest outer packaging has organic hair bars. Following the zero waste principle, informative package inserts are printed on eco paper and attached directly to the soap with a cotton thread or a bast cord.

Individual hair care with active ingredients from nature

For optimal hair care, it is crucial how the hair is conditioned. Short hairstyle need less time for care than long hair. Is the hair thin and frizzy, fine and quick greasy or thick and stubborn? Is the scalp prone to scaling? Is the hair damaged by frequent dyeing or water sports? Even strong sunlight and high temperatures can make hair brittle and dry. It is therefore important to precisely determine your individual type of hair in order to attune the perfect hair care.

Natural cosmetics certified hair care, vegan shampoos and organic hair bars

It's not just the packaging that provides information about environmentally friendly hair care products. Organic seals such as the BDIH certification mark for certified natural cosmetics, the NATRUE seal, ECOCERT and the ICADA for organic and natural cosmetics also test hair care products for their natural components and their skin tolerance. Hair wash & Co. cope with vegans if the care products are labeled with the vegan flower or with the Peta approved vegan seal. Then they contain no animal ingredients and are free from animal testing. Anyone who produces according to the strict guidelines of the German Animal Welfare Association can receive the seal "rabbit with the protective hand". The strictest guidelines for vegan cosmetics are met by the internationally valid Leaping Bunny logo from the Cruelty Free International & CCIC (Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics); known in Europe under the name Humane Cosmetics Standard. In addition, natural cosmetics basically exclude substances from genetically modified organisms. Without chemical and artificial additives, without silicones, sugar or coconut surfactants, the natural shampoos protect the hair, the sewage and nature.

Alkaline hair care

Sweat and hair dyes can create an overacidified climate on the scalp. Hair care products based on petroleum are also absorbed by the skin and hinder the metabolism. In view of the fact that the human scalp is an important excretory organ for acids, alkaline hair shampoos can help to counteract overacidification. Alkaline shampoos in organic quality use natural ingredients that come from certified organic farming to compensate hyperacidity, for example:

  • alkaline oils such as avocado oil, jojoba oil, hop oil, lavender oil, neem oil, castor oil,
  • alkaline plants and fruits such as aloe vera, birch leaves, verbena, chamomile, mallow, tangerine,
  • Cereal extracts such as spelt, millet, wheat,
  • Minerals like potassium, magnesium and zinc.

Particularly sensitive scalps or people with allergies benefit from the natural ingredients. The alkaline hair care, organic shampoos and hair bars provide mild and gentle care without additionally irritating the scalp with chemicals. They soothe an itchy scalp and inhibit scaling.

This does not only prevent ecological damage and defaced hair styles, it also nourishes the hair intensively thanks to the natural ingredients.
