10 hair and body care New Year’s resolutions
It’s the time of year again when we think up some good New Year’s resolutions.
We’ve got a few ideas to help you adopt a more sustainable lifestyle by using products made with naturally-derived ingredients. A New Year’s resolution that considers your health, promotes an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle, and also helps you save money – sounds like a pretty good way to start 2022.
Brands such as OC Naturals make healthy, sustainable New Year’s resolutions effortless thanks to their bottles made from recycled plastic, and products made with plant-based ingredients. What a brilliant opportunity to change up your routine and start the year with healthier habits that consider the environment.
Here are ten top tips to help you achieve natural, sustainable, budget-friendly lifestyle changes in 2022:
1. Swap to sustainable hair care products
When you’re thinking about attainable New Year’s resolutions for your wellbeing, swapping to natural hair care products is a great option. Naturally-derived ingredients are unlikely to harm your health or the earth, and they are super nourishing. The plant extracts and oils in plant-based, naturally-derived ingredients help protect and hydrate your skin and hair, and they aren’t likely to damage your health long-term.
2. Wash your hair less often
Keep your hair well-nourished, and prevent the over-stripping of naturally occurring oils with a minimised hair wash routine. This may result in hair that’s easier to manage, it might help reduce split ends, and add some serious moisture, smoothness, and shine. You’ll save water, too. When you do use shampoo, opt for ingredients such as Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Chamomile Flower, Cocoa Seed Butter, and Argan Oil so your scalp feels balanced and healthy in between washes.
3. Switch to cruelty-free products that are better for the environment
Find products you can feel good about. Know that when you wash away the suds, you’re not damaging the planet. Opt for vegan, cruelty-free products, so you know no animals were harmed in the product’s process.
4. Use products free from nasty chemicals
Steer clear of sulphates particularly, as they can be really aggressive on your hair and skin. Again, products made with naturally-derived ingredients won’t strip the highly necessary natural oils, peptides, and proteins that keep your hair and skin protected.
5. Make sustainable product choices when purchasing
Choose products that are made with the environment in mind to avoid the impact of plastic pollution in our oceans. Some beauty brands, like OC Naturals, make their packaging from wholly recycled materials.
