For The Hair Up There: Tresemme, etc.

1 Jan

It’s always a good thing when new products come out in trial sizes. Consumers would be less hesitant to try it out, or give it as gifts.

So I got a pack, tried it out, and liked it. It was good for my thick, coarse asian hair, the kind that doesn’t fall back in place when you shake your head, and fluffs up in humid conditions. Bleh.

My hair also loves the Pantene (and this conditioning mist) and Rejoice products (Procter & Gamble), Dove, and the less expensive, commercial Loreal line (Elseve / Total Repair). Ironically, the pricey Kerastase didn’t work well on my hair — it left my hair a bit sticky and heavy..

Not surprisingly, just like the others mentioned above,  Tresemme (Unilver) contains a lot of these unhealthy ingredients:

Apparently, the bad stuff makes my hair softer. Because unfortunately the good stuff doesn’t make my hair as soft:

Of course, this would probably work well on finer, naturally smoother hair. However, I want to try this so much:

100% Natural Smoothing Hair Serum

And even though I already tried this, and it’s not greasy and doesn’t weigh hair down, I’m just going to stick with using it on my skin:

Or maybe I will still use it to apply on hair, like a treatment, before I wash my hair. I love Human Heart Nature because their products are non-toxic and they don’t cost an arm.  Check out their website to see why they don’t use certain ingredients. And if you want to take it a step further, like using the simplest ingredients to wash your hair — baking soda /vinegar / apple cider vinegar / lemons; egg / honey / olive oil / bananas / avocadoes to condition, etc. — you can start with these websites:

the daily green website

And a lot of other websites that inform about green living, or at least do-it-yourself natural bath and body products. Because unless we encase ourselves in a plastic bubble, there will always be something toxic in what we’re using, breathing, eating, etc. So we do what we can to make up for those little bad elements that could add up. Here’s to a healthier 2013!
