Do you ever wonder how many chemicals you encounter, either from eating or using certain skincare, makeup or hair products? I'm guilty of this. In fact, I typically gravitate towards artificial scents and never stop to look at ingredients of what I use. However, anytime I am introduced to something organic or natural that is considered to be healthy and good for me, I love to give it a try!
Enter Hair Recipes, a Canadian haircare line uses natural ingredients paired with technology that cleans and refreshes your hair based on the treatment you're looking for.
The entire collection consists of five different types of shampoo:
- Egg and Cognac Shampoo (for dull, tired hair)
- Chamomile Shampoo (for colour-treated hair and gentle cleansing)
- Lemonbalm Shampoo (for oily limp hair)
- Wheat Germ Shampoo (for normal to dry hair)
- Beer Shampoo (for fine, normal hair)
Four different types of oils to nourish your scalp, roots and strands:
- Argan Oil (ends the frizzies, helps detangle)
- Macadamia Oil (for colour-treated hair, helps damaged hair)
- Carrot Oil (for oily hair, nourishes scalp + hair)
- Jojoba Oil (for extremely dry hair + scalp)
As well as the Egg Yolk Conditioner, which complements all the products above.
But what does Recipes have to do with this line of hair products, you ask?
For each product listed on the website, Hair Recipes provides a homemade remedy for you to try that is completely natural, consisting of items in your kitchen, to enhance what ever it is you are hoping to achieve. If you're looking to have softer, healthier looking hair, create a warm mixture with dried rosemary and lemon juice, then massage it into your hair when it's wet.
If you have colour-treated hair like me, try the Chamomile Shampoo with the Egg Yolk Conditioner (I've also been using the Egg & Cognac Shampoo and it hasn't stripped away any of my colour -- bonus points). For more of an added element of gentle cleansing, Hair Recipes recommends this fun trick before jumping in the shower to wash your hair:
- Place 4 bags of chamomile tea into 1 cup of boiling water, steep for 10 minutes
- Remove tea bags and add 5 tablespoons of of Hair Recipes Macadamia Oil
- Stir the mixture and cool down to room temperature before applying it to your hair
- Transfer mixture into a squeeze bottle and massage it into your hair for 2-3 minutes
- Rinse thoroughly and then apply your shampoo + conditioner as you normally would
I haven't given this remedy a go yet, simply because I've been pretty satisfied with the products so far. I'll admit, I was a bit worried that the scent would be a bit too au-natural for me and wouldn't stick around. However, my co-worker the other day commented on how my hair smelled delightful and looked shiny too, and that's what truly sold me on the line.
