Are you thinking of making the switch to a natural shampoo? Do it. You won’t want to be left out by the rest of the world. Because of its many benefits, more and more people are going natural. They’re free of harmful chemicals (silicones, parabens, and dyes), so you can expect your hair to be full of life—with volume that you can feel and freshness that lasts. Making the switch is most definitely worth it.
What You Can Expect: An Adjustment Period. Switching to a natural shampoo may not be a smooth transition. At first, you may find your hair to be waxy, sticky, or hard. You’ll likely panic. But don’t worry—this is a well-documented phenomenon among switchers, and it’ll only be felt for a brief period of time. With continuous use, all the side effects would eventually go away. So don’t give it up after just a few tries.
Sustainability and Beauty. In the Philippines, one of the brands spearheading this change is Love Beauty and Planet. In the last few years, the brand has strongly advocated for both sustainability and beauty. Love Beauty and Planet products are composed of only the finest natural ingredients (most of which are from certified sustainable sources) and the bottles are made from recycled materials. But don’t think that just because its products are natural means that it doesn’t prioritize beauty. On the contrary, Love Beauty and Planet shampoos are all about ensuring your hair gets the best and most appropriate care. It’s the reason why its hair care collections come in five variants:
• Murumuru Butter & Rose (Pink) - for nourished and vibrant hair
• Tea Tree Oil & Vetiver (Green) - to purify and detoxify tired and greasy scalp
• Argan Oil & Lavender (Purple) - for smooth and frizz-free hair
• Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower (Blue) – for voluminous and bouncy hair
• Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang (Yellow) - to repair damaged hair
So, are you ready to make the switch? Again, it won’t be as comfortable at first. But by sticking with it, you’ll be doing your hair—and our planet—a huge favor. Begin the transition by shopping online through Watson’s, Shopee, or Lazada.
