Are you trying to make a switch to a naturally based #hair care routine? Has your #hair has gone from fab to flab? That is what we call the #detox process.
My #hair is going to do what?
During the #detox process, your #hair and scalp will be shedding itself of the build-up from all of the products you have used. Through your #detox, your #hair will shed itself of all of the plastics, silicones, and toxic chemicals that have built up over time. Everyone’s #hair is different and the amount and type of damage can vary, so can the time and process.
Essentially there are three basic #detox responses that your #hair may go through. You may only go through one #detox symptom, or all three of them over the course of your #detox however know that it is normal and a part of the process as your scalp and #hair readjusts and regulates the oil production cycle.
- Your #hair feels sticky, heavy, matted, and/or tangled – This is a common #detox symptom. When your #hair and scalp releases all of the chemical build-up all of the plastics from your previous #hair care products stick to just about anything they can touch, including your #hair.
- Your #hair and scalp feel extremely oily – If your #hair is extremely oily, it’s because your scalp is used to being stripped of its natural oils constantly and over produces oil to compensate. Once your scalp readjusts itself, this will go away.
- Your #hair feels dry, rough, and brittle – All of the damage that you did to your #hair with conventional #hair dyes, #hair straightening products, and sulfate shampoos over the years come into play here. When you start shedding all of the silicones from your #hair, you begin to see the true nature of the damage that has been done to your #hair over time. If this happens, it is imperative to get into a brushing routine to stimulate your #hair and scalp. In the evening, at least a couple times a week. Brush from the back/base of your skull and brush your #hair down from there, spreading the natural conditioners and oils that your scalp produces. Added bonus helps to stimulate the scalp for more #hair growth as well.
Depending on how much abuse your #hair has gone through over time, your #detox period can vary anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months! If you get impatient and try to shampoo your #hair with your old shampoo, you might have to restart the #detox process. I know just how tempting it is but don’t give up.
Be patient! Soon you will enjoy the BEST #hair of your life!
