As a hair stylist who practices within an upscale salon environment, I often hear clients rave about their luxurious hair care products. These professionals often have very expensive hair care products in the best conditioners, leave-in conditioners and moisturizers. I ask them what they are using on their hair. They all smile and reply with a product from a luxury hair care line. I then ask them what type of product they are using. Most respond with a product from Christian Dior or Calvin Klein.
Luxury Hair Care Product Help To Nourish The Health Of The Hair
In my opinion, these types of products offer nothing more than synthetic chemicals for your hair. Most have a heavy chemical smell and some even smell like ammonia. Oils, scalp treatments and even thermal protection products help to nourish the health of the hair, she says. And when having healthy hair is so important, there certainly is plenty to be said for luxury hair care products specifically when having thick, shiny and full hair is the goal. It would be like wanting to swim in a swimming pool that has several types of dangerous bacteria and dirt, wouldn’t you? I don’t think so.
While researching the various luxury hair care products, I began to notice a pattern. Every single one of the top selling luxury products had one thing in common. They had mineral oil, petroleum, SLS and other petroleum based ingredients in them. Those ingredients will not penetrate your hair without leaving behind a greasy film. This greasy film will attract dirt and oil over time.
Conditioner Or Style Your Hair You Use Natural Ingredients
When you shampoo, conditioner or style your hair you use natural ingredients that are in your hair to lather up your product and give you smooth and shiny results. It should be clean, pure and healthy. Unfortunately all too often you are faced with a tube of foamy, sudsing shampoo that leaves behind an oily film that clogs up your pores and causes breakage. Once that happens, that’s it – you have dirt on locks and you need a new shampoo and conditioner.
One of the biggest ingredients found in many popular shampoo and conditioner formulas is sodium laureth sulfate. This chemical is used as an ingredient to help make shampoos and conditioners foam so the lather can spread nicely through the hair. Sodium lauryl sulfate also helps get rid of dirt in your hair because it acts like a foam cleaner when applied to the scalp. But, most importantly, Sodium lauryl sulfate is used as a skin irritant. When applying shampoo, conditioner or styling your hair to reach those hard-to-reach places, you may find that your skin has become very dry, inflamed.
Shampoo And Conditioner That Contains Ingredients Such As Natural Vitamin E
One way to avoid this is to look for a shampoo and conditioner that contains ingredients such as natural vitamin E, grape seed oil and avocado oil. These oils will leave your scalp feeling healthy and refreshed while soothing inflammation and dryness. Another ingredient to look for in luxury hair care products is tea tree oil. This oil has been used for centuries in Australia to treat a number of scalp related problems. It is known to help promote healthy sebum production in the scalp as well as help reduce dandruff and itching associated with it. The oil leaves the hair feeling soft and silky without any tangles or greasiness.
Look for luxury hair care products that contain ingredients such as aloe vera, lavender, Rosemary and lemon grass to nourish and protect your tresses from harsh environmental elements. These soothing herbs are often used in moisturizing formulas as well as herbal toners for spa and salon treatments. When you shop around for your ingredients, you may be able to find seasonal offers at your local salon that feature these ingredients in their products for the best value.
By following the above steps, you can increase your chances of finding a formula that is right for you and your tresses. If you want to get an idea of which ingredients will meet your needs best, look out for products offered by beauty experts on the major beauty networks like Women’s Health and GQ magazine. You can also do a search on the internet for popular brand names of luxury hair care products to get a first-hand look at what each product offers. With the right forecasts and tips on how to choose luxury products, you can have a healthy complexion and glowing tresses throughout the year.
