NEW Hair Regimen Using Mostly Natural and Ayurvedic Products

ayurvedic hair products

How easy is it to just trust what a product manufacturer says about their products? They give you an ingredient list and they tell you “your hair will grow” and “your split ends will be mended.” These product claims are more often than not, a stretch. Yet, we buy into them because we have hope – hope that the products we put our trust in will give us the desired results we are seeking for our hair. Many times we trust the claims without any proof.

Why can’t we trust what nature has to offer in the same manner? All natural and Ayurvedic products are filled with herbs directly from the manufacturer himself…God. It would stand to reason that these natural substances are a lot more potent and effective than their synthetic counterparts. Yet, we go for the “cheap” stuff before even considering what nature has to offer.

OK when I say “we,” I’m generalizing of course. Maybe you’ve always looked to nature for your hair care. Goodie for you. I’m not among that lot. Well, at least I didn’t used to be. I’ve caught on though!

So, I say all of that to say that I’m dramatically overhauling my hair regimen – not the techniques as much as the products. Most of my staple hair products will be eliminated in favor of all natural and Ayurvedic hair care products.

That doesn’t mean I won’t be using any store bought products. There are some items in my hair care regiment that I’ve yet to discover an all natural or Ayurvedic version of. The majority of what I’ll be using on my hair however, will be sourced from nature. In no particular order, the new product line up:

Pre-Poo

  • Organic Unrefined Coconut oil
  • Organic Raw Honey

Cleansers

  • DIY Bentonite or Clay wash first and foremost. Alternating every few weeks with:
    • Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Cleansing Co-wash
    • Shampoo from either Mielle Organics OR The Mane Choice

Deep Conditioners/Strengthening Treatments

  • Curly Proverbz X Belle Bar Organic Cassia Hair Mask (alternate weeks)
  • Curly Proverbz X Belle Bar Organic Henna Hair Mask (alternate weeks)
  • DIY Goat’s Milk Oil and Honey Conditioner (monthly)
  • Curly Proverbz X Belle Bar Organic Growth Hair Oil
  • Curly Proverbz X Belle Bar Green Tea Rinse (also used to impart moisture)
  • Full Strength Henna (quarterly)

  1. LOL we have a lot in common, I have the same products and brands except for the leave in conditioner, im using Giovanni’s direct leave in, and I love co washing with Eden Body works, especially after a henna treatment, my curls be poppin’ and my hair butter soft. I’m dooing the DIY instead of purchasing the products. So far I am happy with my new routine.

    1. Ok I’m going to have to get up on the Giovanni direct leave in. Literally, EVERYBODY I come across in similar circles says they use it!
      I love EB cowash too. I still have 2 full jars lol. When I get low on the products, I’ll start DIYing also. I’m sure it’s a lot more cost effective!

  2. Did you ever use 22nd century natural woman’s shampoo bar? I remember that you used the conditioner. How did you like it, if so?

    1. Hi, I never used her shampoo bar but I have used shampoo bars in the past. Not a fan. I don’t like that I have to scrub it into my hair by rubbing the bar. I also never bought that conditioner again. It felt like I was just rubbing shea butter into my hair. IT’s like I cleaned my hair after shampooing and then adding residue to it by way of the conditioner
