3 Natural Hair Care Products Under $10
Guest Author: Natasha Cornall
Many of us don’t realize it, but many of the shampoos and hair products that we use regularly are primarily made up of damaging chemicals that can cause more harm than good to our hair. These artificial products might clean our hair and make it seem soft and shiny, but they can also strip our hair of its natural oils, irritate our scalps, increase dandruff or lead to hair loss.
Natural hair products don’t harm our hair or our skin, and they’re environmentally-friendly too. Natural shampoos and conditioners can leave us with super soft, super shiny hair without making it greasy or coating it with artificial moisturizers. And these days, you don’t need to pay a small fortune for the benefit of using natural hair products – you can find them in your local drugstore for around the same price as your favorite brands.
We’ve rounded up a list of three amazing natural shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments, with each product coming in at less than $10.
Original Sprout Natural Shampoo (from $2.75, originalsprout.com)
All Original Sprout hair products contain no petroleum oils, parabens or sulfates – just skin- and hair-friendly ingredients. Their Natural Shampoo is crammed with natural and vegan ingredients, including rosemary, cranberry and cucumber extracts, which will cleanse your hair of product build-up and leave it soft and supple. It will restore moisture without leaving a greasy residue, and even help protect coloured hair!
Kiss My Face Miss Treated Conditioner ($7.95, kissmyface.com)
The Miss Treated Conditioner by Kiss My Face is full of restorative vitamins and antioxidants to help heal and bring moisture back to dry or damaged hair. Like the Original Sprout Natural Shampoo, all the extracts and oils used in the Miss Treated Conditioner are vegan and natural. Including lavender extract, to regenerate and repair hair cells, green tea extract, to prevent sun damage, and conditioning jojoba oil, to leave hair soft and shiny.
LUSH Shine So Bright Split End Treatment ($9.95, lushusa.com)
While LUSH are pretty well-known for their vegan, organic and natural products, make sure you read the list of full ingredients on their products – some can include sulfates and parabens which, while fine when used in moderation, can be harmful to your body. This Shine So Bright split end treatment, though, contains extra virgin coconut and olive oils and fresh free-range eggs to nourish and strengthen your hair to prevent and heal split ends.
