You probably know I am a mahoosive fan of free and natural locks. It has been well over three years since I used shampoo or other products and I am experiencing shiny, thick, gorgeous tresses. Not only that, but loads of other people are too! There is a movement of people ditching the chemicals and finding brilliant hair.
Here are three of my favourite natural and eco hair hacks:
Headband curls are sweeping the universe as the heat free way to get Jane Fonda hair. You simply put a stretchy band around your head and then roll your long bits of sectioned hair around the headband. It is tricky to describe but I give you a demo in my brand new e-course Hair Detox! (Click for a special Wonderthrift money off voucher.)
It must be THE most natural way to get shiny, conditioned hair. And at 30p a pop, pretty cheap too! *drumroll* may I present AN EGG! (Click for a link for more information.) Simply whisk an egg and coat your hair with it, mid shower. Make sure your head is cool, and when you come to wash it out, 3 minutes later, use cool water. Dab some essential oils on to get rid of any leftover smell (although fresh eggs won’t pong at all) and make sure you rinse it really superbly well. HELLO, UH-MAZING HAIR!
A boar bristle brush
It is the chemical-free hair movement’s secret weapon. A good hog hair brush. Brushing your hair with ones of these results in no breakage and brings out all your shine, whilst effectively distributing your oils. It is a must and will last your lifetime. In fact, I actually use my Nana’s ancient one!
