Only use shampoo on the scalp

As a licensed cosmetologist, I can tell you from firsthand experience that most people do not cleanse their hair correctly. A lot of people use way too much shampoo which contributes to dry hair, scalp conditions, and damage. The ends of the hair are the oldest and tend to have less moisture and hydration so lathering with shampoo can remove the oils and create dry and frizzy hair.

Instead, a healthier approach is to use shampoo only on the scalp to remove products, oil, and buildup while leaving the ends free from shampoo. Simply, lather your scalp with a natural shampoo, rinse, and repeat the process.

Pro tip: Use a non toxic shampoo like this one to support your health and beauty naturally. A good natural shampoo will be free from harsh chemicals such as sulfates, parabens, and fragrances which can contribute to health issues and inevitably influence your hair health.

As a licensed cosmetologist and holistic beauty expert, these holistic beauty products are the best I’ve used in clean beauty. They are high-performance without any nasty chemicals. They are very similar to the products I used in the hair salon, just without all the harmful chemicals.

Rotate Shampoos

Don’t make the mistake of only using one shampoo in your hair care routine; instead, try rotating between 2-3 different types of shampoos for the best results.

Our hair can get used to the shampoo we use and require varying ingredients to maintain its health and shine. The hair needs a balance of moisture and protein to maintain health, and switching up your products is a great way to support the process.

Holistic beauty tips for healthy hair

Try this shampoo routine:

1.) Shampoo with a clean beauty moisture-rich shampoo like this one to keep hair shiny and manageable.

2.) The next time you shampoo your hair use a clean beauty protein-rich shampoo or balancing shampoo like this one

3.) Continue rotating between the two each time you shampoo your hair.

4.) Use a clean beauty clarifying shampoo like this one periodically to remove excess buildup. You can also try a scalp exfoliating shampoo like this one

My Hair Journey

holistic beauty expert jessica rose

I went all natural with my hair 10 years ago. No color, lightener, and I switched to all natural hair care products. Before that the harmful chemicals ruined my hair. It was broken, thin, and unhealthy after years of lightening it.

Since learning about the health issues associated with hair color and lighteners, I decided to embrace my natural hair color and kick the harmful chemicals to the curb, and I never looked back. It took a lot of effort, research, and patience for my hair to get healthy again. Since adopting a holistic beauty hair care routine I'm really happy with the appearance of my hair.

I haven't used color or lightener on my hair in 10 years, and it's helped it regain its strength and natural beauty. I have also avoided hot tools (blow dryers, straighteners, curling iron) for 5 years. My hair doesn't look as glamorous as my days working in the salon, but it looks healthy, which equates to beauty in my eyes. I feel good knowing that I am using healthy hair care products and caring for my hair holistically.

I am passionate about teaching others to achieve healthy hair with effective holistic beauty tips techniques. With a bit of patience and learning how to care for your hair naturally anyone can achieve beautiful shiny locks.

Skip the Silicone

Smooth and shiny hair is desirable by many people, but did you know silicone does not contain nourishing properties for the hair? They act as a bandaid making the hair appear smooth and shiny but do not improve hair health. Think of silicone as plastic wrap that covers the hair to give the illusion of shine and smoothness but, overtime leaves buildup that can lead to breakage. Of course, we all have different hair types and it is important to experiment and discover what works best for your unique hair.

Try my favorite silicone free hair care products these ones.

Try a Heatless Hair Styling Routine

Using heat tools regularly can damage the hair over time causing it to become brittle and break. Heatless styles on the other hand are an excellent way to protect the integrity of the hair while creating a style that lasts.

A great way to minimize the heat on your hair is to try heatless hairstyles. From foam rollers, flexi rods, pin curls, sock curls, you name it, there is a method to achieve gorgeous hair without heat. Besides being better for your hair, heatless styles last much longer than using hot tools. Curls can last up to a whole week.

I love the Silk Beauty Set for Hair it's perfect for getting the great results with your heatless styles and ensuring your hair stays smooth and healthy while sleeping.

My heatless hair care routine:

I wash my hair at night with a non toxic shampoo and non toxic conditioner, then I apply a leave-in smoothing product.

I allow my hair to dry until it’s ninety percent dry (it looks dry but feels cool to the touch) then I wrap my hair around a heatless hair styler like this one. It looks so cute and stylish. I even run errands while it's in my hair. It looks like a cute headband. I take down my hair in the morning and begin the brush-out process. It's really easy, and my hair always looks healthy and shiny, and the curl lasts for almost a week.

Use a Silk Pillowcase

Sleep like a princess and wake up with smooth gorgeous hair. I highly recommend a silk pillowcase if you haven’t tried one yet. Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can create friction that causes breakage, damage, frizz, and moisture loss. Silk pillowcases like this one help minimize friction and keep hair looking healthy and smooth. They are very comfortable and also help support graceful aging.

I love my silk pillowcase so much I have three of them. When traveling, I always bring mine with me to ensure my hair stays healthy and smooth. My hair is prone to frizz and using a silk pillowcase makes a significant difference.

In addition to my silk pillowcase I also use a silk scrunchi like this one which prevents my hair from getting tangled and minimizes frizz.

I love a silk heatless hair styler like this one. It works incredibly well at getting perfect waves or curls without any damage to the hair. Plus the curls last for almost a whole week!

A silk sleep cap like this one is excellent for keeping your hair smooth and healthy while you sleep. The vintage inspired look is incredibly cute too!

Use a Wooden or Boar Bristle Brush

Wood and boar bristle brushes support scalp health and minimize breakage. These natural brushes help evenly distribute the oils from the scalp to the lengths of the hair, promoting shine, smoothness, and preventing breakage. These types of brushes also stimulate the scalp to encourage healthy hair growth. It is like a massage for your scalp each time you brush your hair. How enjoyable!

Use Holistic Beauty Hair Masks

Using holistic beauty hair care products like a mask is a fantastic way to get gorgeous shiny tresses. Depending on the needs of your hair, you will generally want to apply a hair mask once a week or at least twice a month. Using a hydration hair mask like this one is an excellent option for providing the hair with a moisture boost. Holistic beauty hair masks are much healthier for your overall wellness and they contain nourishing ingredients that repair the hair instead of just masking the problem with harmful chemicals.

Oil Hair Before Shampooing

Protect your tresses with oil. If you're not already oiling your hair before you shampoo, you are in for a treat. Using a natural beauty oil before shampooing helps to protect the hair from moisture loss and can increase shine. When you lather your shampoo, your hair will be protected from a thin layer of oil, keeping it healthy and gorgeous.

You don't need to apply much oil to get the benefits. Simply apply a small amount to the ends of your hair a few hours before shampooing. Leaving the oil in overnight is even better.

You can also oil the whole head, which is my personal favorite. You apply the oil from the scalp to the tip while giving your hair a massage with firm pressure. I suggest this for when you have more time. Make sure not to go overboard with the oil or you will have to shampoo your hair three times to remove all of it, which can increase dryness.

Pro tip: Experiment with various holistic beauty hair oils to find which ones work best with your hair type. Coconut oil is highly recommended in the natural beauty space, however, it does not work for everyone. In fact, for some hair types it cannot penetrate the cuticle for some hair types and causes moisture loss. I am one of those people, so I use grape seed oil instead, and it works incredibly well. Experiment and find an oil that works best for you.

I hope you found these holistic beauty tips for healthy hair from a licensed cosmetologist helpful and that they encourage you to practice self-care regularly. Every effort you put into taking care of your beauty and wellness is worth it.

In health and beauty,
