Are you exploring ways to go waste-free managing your hair? Here are some tips on how you can start your path to zero waste hair care.
Choose A Wooden Brush
First, you need to ensure that you are purchasing a wooden brush. Ideally, it should be 100% compostable. You might even wish to purchase a wooden comb depending on what works best for your hair. Bamboo is a great choice for wooden hairbrushes and does provide numerous benefits and it is also naturally anti-bacterial. Wooden hairbrushes also cause less static than plastic brushes, which is great if you suffer from flyaway hair.
Choose The Right Shampoo & Conditioner
As well as selecting the right brush, you need to think about your shampoo and other hair products. These often come in plastic packaging that does destroy the environment. The best way to avoid this is to buy bars instead. Once the bars are finished with, there’s no waste left over at all. Selecting the right shampoo and conditioner is no different from selecting shampoo supplied in plastic bottles. It might take a while to find the right one for your hair but the end result will be worth it!
