  1. Would you rather have hair that is healthy but looks ugly or hair that is not healthy but looks pretty. I choose the latter.

  2. One thing I’ve found that helps where heated styling tools are concerned, is to not fight your hair. A good cut that works with your hair’s own unique way is key. I’ve found a cut for my hair that works with all of its waves in some places and the straightness of it in others so that I don’t have to use any styling tools (heated or otherwise). Like Natasha, I also use natural oils on my damp hair (nothing else). My hair is healthy and shiny and takes next to no time to style so I’m out of the bathroom lots faster. Freedom!!!

    By the way, in response to the post by stef, unhealthy hair does not look pretty, no matter how much time and effort you put into trying to patch up the damage. It’s all just a Band-Aid. Healthy hair, on the other hand, has a natural beauty all its own and it shines through with little to no effort.

  3. I have very long straight blonde hair and I’ve been using Aubrey Organics Swimmer’s shampoo and conditioner, which is sulfate-free and has a pretty low toxicity rating. I don’t swim but I chose it because it’s supposed to be the most mild scent they offer. I tried several other brands of natural unscented shampoos and conditioners because I don’t like strong scents, but most of them gave me frizzy or waxy feeling hair (my hair is almost three feet long so the ends are often dry). The Aubrey Swimmer’s consistently gives me silky, manageable, healthy looking hair, as long as I don’t wash it more than every other day. I don’t do anything else to my hair other than brushing and braiding.

    1. I, too, use Aubrey Organics. I’ve been using the Blue Camomile Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner for years now and love it! (I tried the Swimmer’s Shampoo and Conditioner and it didn’t do so well on my hair, but everyone’s hair is different.) The only thing is that it doesn’t work in hard water because it’s a soap-based shampoo rather than a detergent. I have a water softener, though, and as long as I keep it full of salt, the Aubrey works great! If I’m going on a trip and won’t have soft water, I use USANA Sense Balancing Shampoo and Strengthening Conditioner. One other thing I love to do is use a diluted vinegar rinse in between my shampoo and conditioner. I like to use Bragg’s Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.

      1. I have hard water at home (well water, no softener, leaves lots of mineral deposits in my teakettle) and I still get good results. It does work a bit better in soft water though, or if I add epsom salt to my bath.

        1. Yep, the epsom salt would do it.

          I had my water tested and found that it was off the charts as far as hard water is concerned, so it’s very bad. All I know is, from personal experience, if I don’t maintain my water softener, I can’t get any lather at all out of my Aubrey Shampoo … and that’s very frustrating because it, obviously, happens right in the middle of my shower and so I have to get out and get my USANA shampoo to use instead. Grrrr! But it’s my own fault for not checking the salt level in my water softener. :-\

  4. The best natural products I’ve come across are by Dessert Essence! All vegan and generally gluten-free 🙂

  8. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared
    to be at the web the easiest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider concerns that they just do not know about.

    signal. Will probably be back to get more.
