You've probably heard the term “organic” used in some hair products you’ve looked at.
But do you really know what they are and why they're gaining popularity?
Read on and we'll dive into the world of organic hair care and answer some of the most frequently asked questions on the subject.
What are organic hair products?
First off, what are organic hair products? Simply put, they're hair care items made with natural ingredients made from plants, free of harsh chemicals and synthetic additives. By synthetic additives, we mean chemicals such as parabens, salts, silicones and more. Common ingredients that you may find on some of your favorite hair care products.
Organic hair products are not only kinder to your hair and scalp, but they're also eco-friendly and promote overall health.
What’s so good about organic hair care?
Improved overall health
Your skin absorbs around 60% of what you put on it. So why not give it natural ingredients, including proteins, vitamins, fruit extracts and essential oils. These are kind to your body and you’ll see the difference in your hair after only a few washes.
By using organic hair products, you reduce the amount of potentially harmful chemicals that you're exposing yourself to. This means you're less likely to experience allergic reactions, irritations, or other health problems associated with synthetic ingredients.

Safer and gentler on skin
Unlike other products that contain harsh chemicals, organic products use natural ingredients that are much kinder to your scalp and hair. This means fewer chances of irritation, itching, or redness. You can enjoy beautiful, healthy hair without those nasty side effects.
Save you money in the long run
While organic hair products might seem more expensive upfront, they are actually a long-term investment as less is needed to achieve effective results. Plus, the long-term benefits for your hair and overall health are priceless.
Synthetic chemicals such as parabens and silicones (oh yes here we go again) give you temporary hair appearance benefits, but will hurt you in the long run. By using organic products, you'll spend less money on taking care of, styling, and fixing your hair in the future.
Organic hair care products are made with sustainable, plant-based ingredients that have a much lower impact on the environment. Organic farming practices use fewer chemicals and make less pollution than regular methods. Synthetic chemicals are harder to break down, and when they wash away, they can pollute both the soil and water. By choosing organic, you're doing your part in reducing pollution and supporting a greener future.
Now, let's take a look at some frequently asked questions!
Are organic hair products better?
While the term "better" can be subjective, organic hair products are safer and gentler for both your hair and the environment. By using natural ingredients, they minimize potential irritation and promote overall health. Remember, your skin absorbs around 60% of what you put on it. So wouldn’t you want to feed it the safest and purest ingredients?
Does organic shampoo make hair grow?
Shampoo is mainly used to cleanse and remove dead cells from the scalp and hair. Although a healthy shampoo can help keep hair strong and healthy, it does not have a direct effect on hair growth. Think of a shampoo as setting up your scalp for a healthier environment. These products contain proven hair boosting ingredients that penetrate the hair and give it essential vitamins and minerals it needs. These ingredients can also remove buildup and improve circulation on your scalp, which will lead to healthier and stronger hair.
Make sure to look at the ingredients when choosing your next shampoo. Our Recover Me Shampoo contains plant stem cells and vegetable glycerin that will help your scalp absorb nutrients and replace dead cells to make hair look younger and fresher. *Wink* *Wink*
What is the difference between natural and organic hair products?
You probably have heard the terms "natural" and "organic" used interchangeably, but they’re actually quite different when referring to hair products.
Natural hair products are products that contain ingredients derived from nature, such as plant extracts, oils, and minerals. However, they may still include some synthetic components or be processed in ways that alter their natural state. Not all natural products are free from harsh chemicals or additives, so it's essential to read the labels and understand the ingredients used.
Organic hair products, on the other hand, are made with a higher percentage of natural, plant-based ingredients that are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals or pesticides. These products usually have strict guidelines to follow in order to be certified as organic, ensuring that they are free of harmful chemicals and additives. Organic products are considered safer and gentler on the hair and scalp compared to their non-organic counterparts.
In short, both natural and organic hair products contain ingredients from nature, but organic products meet more rigorous standards, making them a healthier, eco-friendlier option.
Will my hair grow faster if I use organic hair products?
The answer is yes but make sure you opt for products with hair boosting ingredients. Organic hair products are designed to nourish and strengthen hair follicles, contributing to healthy hair growth. Containing natural and effective ingredients, these products can stimulate growth and provide the essential vitamins and minerals that hair needs for healthy growth. By using organic hair care, you are giving your hair the best chance at growing strong and healthy. A healthy scalp means healthy hair.
In summary, using organic hair products can offer many benefits for your hair and overall health. These products use natural ingredients and are free of harmful chemicals and synthetic additives. Plus, they're better for the environment and can help reduce costs in the long run. By choosing organic products, you are giving your hair the best chance to grow strong and healthy.
