How to make your hair soft and your skin smooth and perfect by saying goodbye to the harmful substances contained in cosmetics!

Greasy hair after a day that forces us to wash our hair every day or on the contrary dry and frizzy hair, untameable and full of split ends is everyone's nightmare but who, at least a little bit, hasn't recognized themselves in these definitions?

Get rid of the damage done to your hair by switching to organic products and cosmetics without parabens, silicones, petrolatum, artificial colors, SLES, SLS and synthetic fragrances. Not only will your hair benefit from the abandonment of these harmful substances , but your skin will thank you too.

The transition to eco-bio, organic products and natural cosmetics does not only mean buying new products but acquiring greater awareness of what, by spreading it on, is absorbed by our body.

This detoxification from harmful substances in cosmetics is not simple for everyone , mainly due to the accumulation of silicones on skin and hair. These substances, in fact, create a barrier that isolates our tissues from external aggressions, but, at the same time, prevents us both from seeing the real state of health of our hair and our skin, and from nourishing them , as they do not allow the passage of "bad substances" as well as "good" ones.

Experience the process as a time to learn to listen to your body's needs again . Let this shift be a way to start truly caring for yourself and your family so you can reveal your true beauty!

So here's how to free yourself from silicones and switch to natural products in 5 steps, without stress :

1. Find out what's hurting you

The first step is to become more aware of the ingredients contained in most supermarket cosmetics. First of all, it is essential to be able to recognize which cosmetics contain silicones and harmful substances, through the conscious reading of the INCI. As a general rule, ingredients ending in –xiloxane, -thicone and –silaoil correspond to silicone ingredients. There are many sites online that allow you to download lists of harmful ingredients .

2. Get rid of old products

It's time to get rid of old products . Finish them, there's no rush, you've been using these products for so many years, one more day won't kill you. By doing so you will avoid polluting by emptying the bottles in the sink and, at the same time, you will get rid of the temptation to use the old products left in the bathroom cabinet, once the new natural products are finished.

3. Switch to intermediate products

As you run out of old creams and hair products, start replacing them with products without silicones, petrolatum, parabens, SLS, etc. This intermediate step is essential to avoid putting too much stress on your hair which, once the silicone layer has been removed, becomes very vulnerable.

In fact, as the layer of silicones and harmful substances accumulated is washed away, your skin and hair will reveal themselves for what they are : parched, dull and dull. But don't be discouraged! Thankfully it is only a temporary state. Also remember that what you see is the true state of your skin and hair that synthetic substances not only hid but actually aggravated!

This phase can last up to 6 months, depending on how thick the layer of synthetic substances has accumulated over the years. You will immediately notice when this phase is over because your skin will start to become brighter, imperfections will disappear as well as the hydrolipidic film imbalances that made it oily or dry. In the same way your hair will become soft again, easy to comb and less frizzy.

4. Switch to natural and organic products

Once you have detoxified your hair and skin, you can move on to the next phase, which is the natural products phase. Natural products differ from the previous ones in that they not only ban silicones but also a whole series of synthetic substances. They define themselves, so to speak at INCI VERDE. But you can do more for your health by using completely natural products and above all with organic ingredients so as to be good not only for yourself but also for the planet!

The intermediate step, in addition to avoiding stressing the hair, also has another purpose: using these products immediately you would waste many of the precious substances they contain because the barrier of silicones and petrolatum would prevent them from penetrating and nourishing your hair and your skin.

Especially in the initial period, apply masks at least once a week, so as to deeply nourish and quickly return your hair and skin to their natural splendor.

5. Every skin and every hair has its own product

Each skin and each hair is unique: just as it needs different times to detoxify from silicones, it also has specific needs. Choose the most suitable product for you, once again paying attention to the ingredients!

For your hair, favor products with nourishing and moisturizing oils and butters such as coconut butter, extra virgin olive oil but also based on detoxifying and relaxing essential oils, herbs and plants such as lavender, mint, sage, cedar wood, cinnamon, cloves and citrus fruits.

For your skin, choose nourishing and moisturizing products with healing properties such as Aloe Vera, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil, almond oil and shea butter.

But above all try, try and try again. Each of us has its own unique needs and only by trying and trying again will you be able to find the perfect product for you and finally say that you are Welcome to the natural and organic world!
