Your hair is said to be your crowning glory. Most mainstream hair products contain chemicals and additives such as phtalates, parabens, sulfates and many others that are known to be harmful to health. Choosing natural alternatives can help reduce the amount of toxins you are exposed to on a regular basis.

If you are looking at moving away from conventional haircare products or exploring more natural options, you might want to consider essential oils. For many years, people have been using essential oils for hair care for their moisturising, stimulating or soothing properties. Whatever the case may be, essential oils for your hair can be a versatile approach to any hair concern.
