When transitioning to natural hair care, it's important to keep in mind that your hair may go through a detox period. During this time, you may experience dryness, itching, oiliness, or flakiness as your hair adjusts to its new natural lifestyle. Don't let this deter you! With a little patience and the right approach, you can successfully navigate the detox period and have healthier hair in no time.
The detox period can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the state of your hair and the products you were previously using. We recommend using at least one full set of our 240ml bottles of shampoo and conditioner before determining the effects on your hair. It's extremely important to be patient and give your hair the time it needs to adjust.
Clarify Your Hair
To help remove any buildup from your hair, use a clarifying shampoo or apple cider vinegar rinse before starting your natural hair care routine. Simply massage into your scalp and rinse!
Use Natural Oils
Natural oils, such as argan oil, jojoba oil, and avocado oil, can help moisturize and nourish your hair during the detox period. We recommend oiling your hair 1-2x per week, rinsing thoroughly.
Avoid Heat Styling
During the detox period, try to avoid heat styling your hair as much as possible. Instead, opt for hairstyles that are easy to maintain and don't require heat, such as braids or twists.
Consistency is key when transitioning to natural hair care. Try to stick to the same routine for at least a month to give your hair time to adjust. We promise, it'll be worth it!
Overall, switching to natural hair care can take some time and effort, but it's worth it for the long-term health and appearance of your hair. With patience, consistency and a little bit of TLC, you'll be on your way to beautiful, healthy hair in no time at all!
