6 REASONS WHY YOU ARE HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY December 28, 2017 – Posted in: Beauty

Harsh, stripping or toxin filled shampoos and conditioners should be the last thing you’re putting on your parched locks; nourish your hair with healing butters and oils for lasting hydration. Here are 6 reasons why you are having a bad hair day…


Yes, we all know that regular hair washing helps stimulate growth and keeps hair follicles healthy, but do you know that there really is such a thing as over-washing your hair. You might not be ready to start on the “sometimes no wash” routine, but you need to know that daily shampooing is stripping your hair of essential nutrients and natural oils. Find a balance of what works for you hair type: say, wash it every other day, or every three days…what you do with that new extra time, is totally up to you!

How about after a swim? Definitely must wash and do make sure to take your first post-pool rinse as soon as you can. A short shower with a little bit of natural shampoo, like Kelp & Mint Volumizing Shampoo, will help rinse out any damaging pool chemicals like chlorine.


For some hair types, it can leave others feeling like a greasy hairball. While we do love that extra thirty minutes of snoozing, on the other end of the spectrum, under-washing your hair is no joy either. Long periods of not shampooing your hair can lead to product and oil build up in your hair follicles, and can actually pause hair growth or even lead to dandruff. Find a happy balance for your shampoo schedule, but there is really no need for daily wash when you are using a natural shampoo that suits your hair condition.


A steamy, hot shower on a chilly day is by far one of the best things in life. Warming your bones is great for the mind and soul, but it can wreak havoc on your scalp and skin! Choose to turn the temperature down when it’s time to wash your hair; the cooler water temperature will help retain much needed moisturize and help to fight frizz.


It’s not exactly breaking news that stress can have an adverse effect on our health, and it turns out that it can also affect our hair. A recent study showed that stress can show up in our hair, tracking our stress levels as a tiny timeline, revealing long term exposure. High stress levels can lead to brittle, easily damaged hair. Whip out the squishy stress ball, whale sound track, or your favourite video when you feel stress starting to bubble up inside. Ahh, that’s so much better.


If there was one more thing to add to the wonderful list of changes caused by your monthly event, it’s that your hair tends to get greasier while on your period. That’s right, hormonal fluctuations during your menstrual cycle have been connected to increased hair oil production. While thankfully this isn’t proven to happen to everyone, this knowledge could help you pre-emptively attack that week of bad hair with a few extra shampoo sessions.


Let’s keep the alcohol in glasses, not in our natural hair product ingredients, please. Alcohol in hair care products can dry out your delicate strands, and many conventional hair products use traditional alcohol in order to emulsify the product. We’d recommend avoiding any hair product that lists SD Alcohol 40, Ethanol, Propyl, or Isopropyl. While Cetearyl Alcohol might sound like it should be on that avoidance list, but it’s actually a “fatty alcohol” that helps natural shampoo and conditioners move through your hair with ease. This vegetable derived ingredient doesn’t behave like the traditional drying alcohols that can strip and dry your strands.

Once you begin researching all those hard to pronounce names on the ingredient list, you’ll find yourself spiralling down a terrifying rabbit hole of potential hair care dangers.
