Finding the perfect shampoo is a surprisingly difficult feat despite the vastness of the market. Often, we want a shampoo that is powerful enough to make changes to our hair. Due to excess heat and styling, an ideal shampoo should be able to repair damage and encourage growth. Shampoo, by design, cleans your scalp from dirt and product buildup. To do this, the product needs to be penetrative enough to get to the root of our hair problems. Once repaired, it should leave it shiny and in good condition.
At the same time, the ideal shampoo should be as derived as naturally as possible. Common shampoo ingredients, such as parabens, are a form of chemical preservatives. Parabens cause damage to the hair and scalp, according to experts. This can result in hair loss, and for those with sensitive skin, allergic reactions. Harsh chemicals strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving them in poor condition. Parabens are a common cleaning ingredient for objects such as cars, and who wants to clean their hair the same way as their car?
With many of us concerned about climate change, natural shampoos are more important than ever. Harsh chemicals pollute water and endanger wildlife, causing climate change. Switching to natural shampoos are one small change that makes a big change to our eco footprint. Even typical plastic packaging, however, will likely find its way into landfill or our oceans. Finding a shampoo that is both natural and able to change your hair for the better seems like an almost impossible task.
Terre De Mars 010 Irreverence Nourishing Shampoo
This is why I strongly recommend Terre De Mars Irreverence Nourishing Shampoo. The shampoo comes in a 500ml bottle and when washing hair, a little goes a long way. The product quickly lathers with only a small amount, meaning the product is good value for money, and you ultimately consume less. Rather than needing to shampoo twice to get a good lather, the product immediately gets to the root of your scalp.
Made from coffee extract, the product has a natural, yet rich scent. Its use of caffeine properties feels refreshing on the scalp, and acts as good as it feels. Caffeine stimulates the scalp, promoting hair growth and retaining moisture, accordi. This helps create shine and prevent breakage, leading to split ends.
Once my hair was dried and styled after showering, I noticed my scalp felt refreshingly lightweight. Having wavy, almost waist-length hair, my hair can often feel weighed down by product. When you hair is already heavy, product buildup can make hair feel greasy and unclean. Even after applying conditioner and leave-in products, my hair felt thoroughly cleaned down to the roots. Even after applying further products, my hair felt much less dragged down and looked much less oily upon styling.
While less chemicals were used, my hair felt shinier than ever. The shampoo’s natural ingredients enhanced my hair’s natural moisture and added a bright sheen. Without overloading the hair with product, its natural use of aloe vera and coffee helped retain moisture more than other, less natural products.
98.7% of natural origin, using the product felt like a small, but effective way to help save the planet. Having improved the look and condition of my hair, switching to natural did not feel like a sacrifice in any way. Rather, it was a way to enhance my hair’s natural properties without using harsh chemicals that ultimately lead to damage.
This Irreverence Nourishing Shampoo is also a rarity in the shampoo market in that its packaging is also recyclable. All of Terre De Mars packaging is made from recyclable glass and thick PET, the most widely recycled material in the world. Overall, Terre De Mars has managed to combine nature and science to create a shampoo that is good for hair as it is for the planet. This shampoo is proof that harsh chemicals are not needed to create beautiful hair, rather, enhancing its natural qualities with natural ingredients.
