Healthy Hydration For Your Hair

0 June 3, 2011 - Archive

It’s no secret that hydration is key in the summer, not only for your body, but also for your hair! While warmer temperatures bring fun in the sun, time spent at the beach, park, or just outdoors also brings more of the drying damage that can stress your tresses.  Moisture is the key—and healthy moisture will do wonders for your locks and your well-being. So if you haven’t tried Young Living’s new Copaiba Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner, now is the time!

No matter what type of hair you have, these new Young Living products will provide you with extra moisture over the summer months. The copaiba and vanilla essential oils will promote healthy strands and scalp, as well as provide the therapeutic benefit to mind and body of using pure essential oils for your personal care.

Other tips to help take care of you and your hair this summer:

  • Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead. Too much heat can dry out or damage your hair and skin.
  • Chlorine causes severe dryness to your hair. Before you go swimming, dampen your hair to reduce the absorption of chlorine. Shampoo as soon as possible after swimming to get the residue and chlorine out of your hair. Lavender Mint Cleansing Shampoo is a great, invigorating shampoo to choose to get rid of the residue and refresh your senses.
  • Keep a straw hat, cap, or scarf on hand as a fashionable skin and hair saver. Just like your skin, your hair and scalp feel the sun’s damaging rays.
  • Try shampooing your hair less often. Skipping a shampoo day in the summer is great for your hair IF you aren’t swimming or doing activities that are taxing your tresses. Young Living’s LavaDerm™ Cooling Mist is a great refresher for your hair and your skin on days when your hair may not need the full shampoo treatment.
  • Avoid using additional heat on your hair when possible. If you can’t avoid your dryer or your flat iron, just make sure to condition your hair before using.

The more you do to keep your hair strong through the summer months, the less time you’ll spend in the fall repairing the damage. Keep in mind that the new Lavender Mint and Copaiba Vanilla shampoos and conditioners are not only natural and effective, but are also 100-percent biodegradable. These new products are great to take with you to the beach, to the campsite, or anywhere your travels take you. You can keep your hair healthy and treat the environment well, too!

I’d love to hear how you’ve used our new hair-care products and any additional tips or tricks you have for keeping your hair healthy through the summer!

    Can you please tell me if your shampoos are safe for hair that has been colored.

      Hi Sarah, Thanks for your question. Our shampoos should not harm hair that has been colored. With that being said, we cannot speak to any particular features regarding hair type. We would recommend trying the shampoo/conditioner of your choice on a small, inconspicuous area first to make sure the products are compatible with your color treated hair. We hope this information is helpful!

    My husband & I love the vanilla copaiba shampoo and conditioner. We are thrilled to find such an environmentally sound and non-toxic product that works so well. I agree with the previous comments about the labeling. I can’t read it at all and have resorted to writing a big “S” or “C” on the bottom so I can tell which is shampoo or conditioner. The cap was difficult at first, but I now find it quite easy and efficient to use. Thanks again, Barbara

    Thanks for the great comments and feedback!
    Jtkao, it is possible that a version of just lavender shampoo might be coming available. It would be great to know a little more about what your husband doesn’t like about the lavender mint if you wouldn’t mind sharing that feedback with me as well as what specifically he liked more about the orignal Lavender. Thanks for your feedback! =)

    Eileen, Its great to read your comments! The energizing mix is what we had in mind with creating that oil blend so I’m very glad its working for you! Thank you!

    It is great that the Copaiba Vanilla is treating you right. I appreciate the feedback on the font and the cap. Something we are definitely looking into with future runs of the product. Thanks very much for sharing your experience!

    My kids and I absolutely LOVE the vanilla copaiba shampoo and conditioner. They leave our hair so soft, manageable and so beautiful. It’s so wonderful to have a non-toxic shampoo and conditioner duo that works so well!!

    Hi Rebecca,

    I recently tried the Copaiba Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner and love how it feels and smells. The packaging shape and cap style is nice but 1) the color contrast and font make it very difficult to see which you’re grabbing; 2) the text should face the same direction on both bottles with cap on top; 3) cap does not open easily.

    I’ve recently purchased the new Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. After trying the products for the very first time, they will definately be part of my every day routine! Such an awesome way to “start your day” thanks to YL!!!

    I really miss the Lavender shampoo. My husband would also use this but does not like the lavender mint. I wonder if they will bring it back at all?
