Treat yourself, and your hair!

November 02, 2015 2 min read

We've known for sometimes that humidity, pollution and styling products can weaken your hair and cause breakages but did you know that sulphate based haircare products can potentially worsen the damage?

Sulphates, common detergents found in many haircare products, can strip your hair of colour and essential oil-leaving your hair looking dull and prone to breakages.

Sulphates are the foaming part of shampoo and dry and strip all the natural oils and moisture and can contribute to scalp conditions and allergies.

Using a shampoo that doesn't have sulphates will quickly restore moisture and aid with any scalp conditions that may have been caused by harsh sulphates.

Our enviroCare Shampoo doesn't have any sulphates.

Sulphates partner in crime, silicone also prevents your hair from being its best, shiny self. Silicone builds up on our hair making it look shiny and silky, for a while at least! What actually happens is the silicone creates a coat on the hair shaft and prevents hair treatments from penetrating and preventing hair colour from staying, but your hair temporarily feels and looks healthy. Over time, however your hair becomes dull and listless with this build up.

So, how do you remove the silicone from your hair?

Unfortunately, it's not going to happen overnight. In fact it may take up to 4-6 weeks even! Especially if you have always used silicone based products. But it is possible! 

Start by switching to a silicone and sulphate free shampoo and conditioner such as enviroCare Shampoo & Conditioner.

To help speed up the process, indulge in a little hair care routine. 

After washing with sulphate and silicone free shampoo (enviroCare Shampoo or enviroCare Sensitive Shampoo) use the best conditioner you can find, again, one free of silicone, preferably enviroCare Intensive Hair Treatment.

Dry hair a little with a towel, put a good amount of conditioner or Intensive Hair Treatment in your palm and lather all over your head, making sure to coat the ends.

Put a towel under the hottest tap you can stand and wring it out, wrap your hair in the towel and leave until it goes cold, repeat.

Sit in a nice sunny spot and relax. Try to leave the hot towels on for at least 10 minutes.

Rinse all the conditioner off. Dry and style.

Treat your hair to this routine at least once a month for best results. 

Keep in mind that products with out silicone or synthetic additives that coat the hair may take some getting used to, but you will reap the rewards of colour staying and healthier natural glow hair.

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
