Organic shampoo ’is best for the hair’
Using organic shampoo could lower the risk of having an allergic reaction to an unknown chemical, according to All Your Life.
Yvette Cowles, marketing director of the makeover company, explained that organic shampoo is much kinder to the hair and scalp than regular cleansing products.
"There are so many chemicals in shampoos; we don’t really know what they are, and so we don’t know what the side effects are. It is best to use something that is pure and natural where you don’t risk having an allergic reaction to something," she stated.
"People tend to be influenced by advertising. They recognise a brand name and they assume that it must be a good product because they have seen it advertised."
Autumn is the time of year when females will start needing to take care of their hair and scalp a little more because of the cold temperature, wind and central heating used in the home, office and shops, which can make locks dehydrated and flyaway.
"Protect your head from the elements by wearing a hat, comb or brush your hair gently, keep it well conditioned and only use gentle, organic hair products," Ms Cowles advised.
"I personally think it is important to use very gentle hair/skin products that don’t have any harsh chemicals or parabens [because] the scalp is very sensitive."
Using gentle products, such as herbal shampoo, is particularly important when an individual has thinning hair, which can be as a result of stress, shock, medical treatments like chemotherapy or just age. Losing your hair can "really affect your self-esteem and confidence in yourself as a woman", so be kind to heads and perhaps invest in hair loss treatment to boost regrowth.
Above all, it is essential to get hair trimmed regularly to get rid of split ends and dryness. This could make a notable difference to the condition of the hair and get individuals walking down the street with their hair held high.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
