Do you have thin hair? Greasy hair? How about hair that isn’t necessarily thin in amount, but baby-fine strands that tend to lay limp?
I hear ya! While my hair isn’t terribly thin in amount, the strands themselves are very thin and any layering in my hair tends to make the longer layers look so pitifully thin!
There are many conventional products on the market for this type of hair, but they tend to be laden with chemicals that dry your hair out and they don’t even work all that well to make up for it!
I have some natural ideas for you to try that have really helped my hair. I will separate them into a few different posts so I can go in depth on each suggestion.
Here we go!
1.) No more chemical shampoo & conditioner! I have switched from sulfate shampoo and silicone conditioners to homemade shampoo bars (pssssst… they’re in my etsy store!) with an apple cider vinegar rinse and just a dab of Young Living conditioner on the ends.
I have found the shampoo bars have really improved my hair growth and I have so many baby hairs coming in since I began using the bars. I make them with specific Young Living essential oils that stimulate hair growth and scalp health.
Healthy scalp = healthy hair!
Also, as opposed to a sulfate shampoo, shampoo bars do not strip the natural oils from the hair so there isn’t a need to weigh the hair down with synthetic moisturizers. That keeps the hair from getting weighed down and heavy. Light and voluminous is what we are going for here!
The apple cider vinegar rinse is simply a few tablespoons of vinegar mixed with a cup of water. I pour this over my hair after shampooing to neutralize the PH of my hair and scalp. It is super clarifying and removes any build up.
Young Living has several different conditioners that are all great quality and provide natural moisture for your hair. You browse through products and order through that link. I use just a pea sized amount of conditioner and work through my ends to prevent split ends and tangles!
Hair with volume and body starts in the shower. This is where I start, every 2-3 days when I shampoo. Hopefully this provided some ideas to get started on and I will be posting the next step as well as some recipes I use in my hair routine ASAP!
