Organic Summer Hair Care

Organic Summer Hair Care 1 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

Summer is here and that often means long days at the beach, swimming, and hot afternoons in the sun. It might also mean parched and damaged hair from the elements. However, we have come across some great summer hair products to nourish, protect, and style your hair. They are the Alterna Bamboo line and Intelligent Nutrients hair care products.

What is great about them? Most importantly, that they work! But that is not enough for us health-conscious moms. They are also organic and free of harmful chemicals so you can feel safe using them on yourself and around your kids. Check out the lineup below.

Bamboo line by Alterna

Alterna‘s line of Bamboo hair products feature eco-certified bamboo extract and Tahitian coconut extract. The line is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic color, talc, sodium chloride, mineral oil, petrolatum, and PABA.

  • Love the beach but don’t live close by? You can still get that tousled, carefree summer hair with Bamboo Beach Ocean Waves texturizing spray without making a trip to the beach. It’s lightweight, smells great, and doesn’t leave your hair (or hands) feeling sticky. The spray gives your locks a wavy and shiny look for hair that looks effortless yet stylish. It features organic bamboo extract and Tahitian coconut to protect your hair from damage from the water and sun.
  • Once back from the ocean (or just a hot day in the sun), the Bamboo Beach Recovery Spray is a go-to treatment for parched and damaged hair. It works as a leave-in conditioner to add moisture and protect your hair from further damage. It also features Alterna’s ColorHold formulation for color treated hair, as well as organic bamboo extract and Tahitian coconut. If you’re hair is really damaged, reach for Bamboo’s UV+ hydration masque. It’s a deep moisturizing mask with organic kalahari melon extract to add back moisture and strength and protecting color.
  • Lastly, a product every mom (new moms especially!) should have at hand is dry shampoo. Bamboo Mango Coconut Refreshing Dry Shampoo is a powder to use between washes. You just sprinkle it onto your roots and then massage it throughout your hair until you no longer see the powder. It truly leaves your hair feeling refreshed as well as smelling great.
Author’s Note: I’ve fallen in love with Bamboo dry shampoo. Having tried many dry shampoos, including sprays, this is by far my favorite. It also puts my mind at ease that I’m not going to be using a chemical-laden spray or shampoo around my baby. If you’re an expectant or new mom, this shampoo will become a lifesaver in those early days of little sleep and little personal time to shower, so stock up now!
