5 Steps To A More Sustainable Hair Routine

5 Steps To A More Sustainable Hair Routine

25th Aug 2021

Our haircare and skincare routines play a major part in our everyday impact on the environment. With little changes, it can lead to big results towards environmental change – here are some of our favourites to help you look good while keeping a clear conscience.

Shampoo Bars

These little wonders are surprisingly effective! With shampoo in solid form, the bars are more concentrated than traditional shampoos, so you can use less per application for longer usage with fabulous results. Wrapped in recyclable paper or stored in a handy aluminium tin, their compact size is perfect when travelling – no more leakages in your hand luggage!

Try the Davines Shampoo Bars, you won’t regret it!

Super-size Bottles

Buying super-sized beauty products can help your bank balance but also the environment. Buying bigger bottles and decant to smaller ones does not only helps reduce waste but ensures you're always stocked up on your fav’s. Try the Color WOW Color Security Shampoo & Conditioner which help to prolong colour fade, plus they have no sulphates, no silicones, no conditioning agents included whilst also being cruelty-free and gluten-free.

Speed up drying time

We thank our lucky stars there is such a thing as quick dry sprays. These sprays typically coat the hair cuticle for faster evaporation and increased airflow, resulting in faster dry times which means less energy used with a hairdryer. Milk_Shake Lifestyling Amazing Spray not only promises to speed up drying time to be more energy efficient but also gives heat protection and frizz control, all packed in 50% recycled plastic packaging.

Skip the conditioner

Reducing time spent in the shower will decrease your hot water and energy use, and skipping the conditioner cuts this in half. Try using a leave-in conditioner such as Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother 100ml which still gives all the conditioning nourishment you need but their cruelty-free, non-toxic formulas promotes wellness in your hair without threatening the environment.

Scrimp on hair washes

The easiest way to minimise your environmental impact is by washing your hair less often. Using a dry shampoo can help keep your hair fresh if you want to cut down hair washing days. The Maria Nila Style & Finish Cleansing Powder instantly freshens up the hair while adding light texture and volume. We love that this dry shampoo is powder not a spray and is Sulphate & Paraben free plus 100% Vegan, Animal friendly with CO2 compensated packaging. Amazing!
