Hey, rebels! Are you tired of the same old eco-friendly tips? Want to shake things up and be an eco-warrior with your haircare routine? Look no further!
If you're a fan of being sustainable and eco-friendly, then why not apply that same philosophy to your haircare routine? It's time to ditch the harmful chemicals and synthetic ingredients that harm the planet and embrace the natural and organic way of life.
Here are our best eco-friendly hacks that will not only make you look amazing but also help you save the planet! So, let's get started.
We all know how important it is to choose sustainable products, but have you considered your haircare products?
Many of the conventional products you’ll find at your local supermarket, Chemist Warehouse or even your hairdresser contain a whole bunch of harmful chemicals and synthetic ingredients that are not exactly earth friendly. These nasties not only take a whole lot of resources to produce, but can also pollute our waterways and harm marine life (poor sick fishies). By choosing natural, organic hair products, you’re not only supporting sustainable farming practices, but also helping to reduce the amount of chemicals being spewed into our environment.
Slow the Flow
We get it, long hot showers are heavenly, but let’s face it – it might be time to break up with that luxury. Not only do long showers waste an insane amount of water, but they also come at a high cost to our planet.
Challenge yourself to reduce your shower time, and while you’re at it, turn off the water while you’re lathering up your hair with some sustainable shampoo and conditioner. Plus, by washing your hair every other day (or less!), you’ll not only conserve water, but also reduce your consumption of haircare products, saving you some major coin. It’s time to break the habit and embrace a more sustainable and budget-friendly shower routine.
Wrap it Eco
It’s time to ditch those outdated cotton towels and level up your haircare with reusable hair towels or turbans. Traditional towels are a waste of water and energy to produce and wind up polluting the environment by ending up in landfills once they wear out. Reusable turbans are a sustainable (and stylish!) way to care for your hair. So say goodbye to the old and hello to the new, because sustainability is the way to go.
Turn it Off
Hairdryers, straighteners and curling irons might give you the perfect look, but at what cost? It’s time to say goodbye to these energy suckers and opt for air-drying your hair whenever possible. Not only will you be helping to save the planet from energy waste, but you’ll also be promoting a low-maintenance, natural look that’s both on-trend and eco-friendly. Join the revolution and let your hair down.
Choose Sustainable Salons
When it comes to sustainability in the haircare industry the buck doesn’t just stop with you! It’s not just about what products you choose at home, but also where you choose to get your hair done.
Choosing a sustainable salon is a great way to support eco-friendly practices and reduce your carbon footprint. The type of salon you’re looking for will prioritise sustainability by using renewable energy, recycling their waste and choosing eco-friendly products. By opting for a sustainable salon, you can feel good about your haircare choices AND support businesses that share your values.
Did I mention that going green with your haircare routine will not only help save the planet, but you'll also treat your hair and scalp to some serious TLC? Swap out those chemical-laden products for natural and organic alternatives, and say goodbye to damage, dryness, and itching. It's time to rebel against synthetic fragrances and other irritants and embrace the power of nature for healthy, beautiful hair.
So, there you have it, rebels! By making conscious choices, reducing your water usage, and embracing your natural texture, you can help reduce waste, protect the environment, and promote healthy hair and scalp. It's time to make a difference, one haircare product at a time!
