The Science of Haircare: How Chemical-Free Products Help Hair

If you've never really thought much about what's in your hair products, you're not alone. Let's face it, at some point, most of us have chosen hair products based on anything but science–the scent, the packaging, advertising, recommendations from friends, what was popular at the time, or just because it's what we've always used.

But the truth is lots of hair products are full of chemicals that don't always agree with your hair. Thankfully, there's a better way. Here's how chemical-free products help hair. 

Clean Without Stripping Your Hair

Hair products that use chemical surfactants clean everything from your hair–including the natural oils that need to be there! For many people, that loss of moisture can result in dryness, itchiness, frizz, and hair breakage. It can also trigger a vicious cycle where your hair overproduces oil in an attempt to replace what was lost. 

In contrast, chemical-free products use surfactants that clean but don't strip your hair of its natural oils. At Viori, we use sodium cocoyl isethionate, which is a natural surfactant derived from coconuts. It gently and thoroughly cleans your hair without stripping your natural oils. And it's great for getting rid of product buildup, too!

Moisturize Without Leaving Your Hair Limp or Greasy

Conditioner is a vital part of your hair care routine, but many people skip it because they feel like their hair is too limp or greasy after conditioning. And some people complain of buildup that leaves them feeling itchy, too. If you can relate, it's time to try a chemical-free conditioner.

Chemical-free conditioners use natural oils and butters to condition your hair. For example, we use ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter, and aloe vera in our conditioners–all things you probably use to moisturize and soothe your skin! And best of all, chemical-free conditioners do a wonderful job of giving your tresses the moisture they need without building up and leaving your hair limp or greasy. 

Add Shine Without Buildup 

Some products do a great job of adding instant shine to your hair, and they can be tempting to use for that reason. The problem is they also build up on your hair, are hard to remove, and seal moisture out of your hair. What starts out as a beautiful sheen quickly turns to dull, damaged, and dry hair. 

Fortunately, chemical-free products are amazing for adding shine without the troublesome buildup. Look for natural ingredients like aloe vera, bamboo, and rice bran oil to make your hair seriously shiny. Want to see the evidence for yourself? Just check out our reviews!

Switch to chemical-free products that contain humectants like aloe vera and bamboo to lock in the moisture and nutrients your hair needs to repair and renew itself. And try the natural benefits of Longsheng Rice Water. Studies have found that the vitamins, minerals, and inositol it contains help your hair repair, renew, and grow!
