I never thought I'd switch to natural shampoo and conditioner. I like the idea of using planet-friendly personal care, but I deal with an itchy scalp and flakes. A well-known drugstore line created for exactly those issues works really well for me. Swapping it for natural formulas = risk. But when Weleda natural hair care launched, I decided to try the shampoo designed to help a flaky scalp. More of my story in a bit; now let me tell you about next Monday's #WeledaHairDare Twitter chat and the prizes you could win.
weleda natural hair care twitter chat + prizes!
Natural hair care is a bit of a challenge for many people, whatever their hair type. We've come to rely on the instant gratification we get from standard sulfates-and-silicones formulas. Without them, will our hair still shine? Will our hair still bounce? Will our hair still behave?Above: Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo for normal hair ($10.99 at well.ca) relies on organic millet seed extract for shine.
Those are valid questions. According to a recent survey, almost 40% of Canadian women have either stayed home from work, or skipped a party, or worn a hat to hide a Bad Hair Day ’do. And maybe you've heard that when you switch to sulfate-free, silicone-free, fragrance-free all-natural hair care, it'll be weird, starting with the texture of the product itself, and a lack of foaming action. You might also have heard that there's a "transition period" during which your hair might look less than its best. Above: Weleda Wheat Balancing Shampoo ($10.99 at well.ca) contains wheat germ oil to calm and moisturize dry and irritated scalps. This is the one I use and love.
So at 9pm onMonday April 21st -- next Monday, I'll be joined by Elaine of TOBeautyReviews (@TObeautyreviews) and Tenille of Feisty Frugal & Fabulous (@feistyfrugal) as I host our #WeledaHairDare Twitter chat. Connect with me on Twitter via @JanineFalcon. Above: Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry and Damaged Hair ($10.99 each at well.ca).
We'll discuss hair care tips, ingredients, Weleda know-how (click here to see Facebook photos of the Weleda Biodynamic Garden in Germany!), and transitioning to natural hair care. Plus we're extending a Weleda Hair Dare: we dare you to switch to natural hair care for one month, and share your results. Above: also part of the Weleda natural hair care range is a Weleda Oat Replenishing Treatment for dry and damaged hair ($12.99 at well.ca), and Weleda Rosemary Hair Oil ($17.99 at well.ca) to crank up shine and manageability (can be used overnight and washed out in the morning).
To help with your hair dare, during the Twitter chat we'll give away 10 Weleda natural hair care collections worth $90.75 CDN each (the three shampoos + conditioner + replenishing treatment + hair oil). We'll also give away one Weleda Grand Prize worth $500, a basket that includes the full hair care lineup as well as Weleda treats for skin and body.
