Organic hair products the facts

Organic hair products are best! - Hype or the smart choice?

We are increasingly faced with the choice of organic vs traditional products. Food, cosmetics, clothes and furniture are just a few of the commodities that now offer a sometimes confusing and bewildering array of options.

The UK organic market is the third largest in Europe after Germany and Italy. In 2006, almost £2.5 billion worth of organic products were sold in the UK - an increase of 22 per cent on 2005.

This growth is continuing as consumers are becoming more informed as they begin to understand the harmful effects that non-organic products can have on their bodies and the environment. This is resulting in a shift towards natural and organic goods.

So do organic hair products really live up to the hype?

Traditional off-the-shelf hair care products contain, to varying degrees, chemicals that can cause serious harm. Potentially harmfull chemicals often found in the most popular brands include:

Take a moment to check your bathroom cabinet to see if any of these nasty ingredients are lurking in your favourite products. Any shocks?

But do not panic, all is not lost. Once you know what ingredients to avoid it becomes a mission of seeking out healthier, natural alternatives.

However, when shopping for organic hair products we recommend that you continue to be vigilant and carefully read ingredient labels. Even though some products claim to be all natural or organic, not all of them strictly adhere to this promise. Typically, if there are more than nine or ten ingredients listed, the product most likely contains at least some synthetic materials.
