Making a change in hair care products may feel fairly daunting, especially if you’ve used the same products for years. However, once you make the switch you'll probably end up wondering why you didn't do it sooner! We're outlining what you can expect when you switch to natural hair care, and why it's so worth it.
With so many of today's products containing a wide variety of synthetic and sometimes harmful ingredients, we at Calia have created a line of hair care products that are as pure and as natural as possible. Our main goal? To get your back to its most naturally beautiful state. Now, let's get to the important questions...
Why transition to natural hair care products?
The main benefit of switching to natural hair care is (of course) all the beneficial ingredients! Unlike many of the typical hair care products you may find on the shelves, natural products are much more gentle on your hair, allowing your hair to live to its full potential! This is because they are free from harmful chemicals such as sulfates, silicones, parabens and more. The natural oils and vitamins in our formulas keep your scalp healthy, which is essential for stimulating growth, improving dryness, reducing irritation and improving hair texture!
Is there a transition period when you make the switch?
The short answer is... YES! Before you panic, keep reading. If you’ve been using chemical-based shampoos for years, then your hair will inevitably go through a transition when you make the switch. It may take anywhere from a few washes to a few weeks for your hair to start to adjust, and this totally depends on the condition of your hair. The main thing you may notice is a change in the way your natural oils behave, as chemical-based shampoos are very stripping. Not only that, but chemicals such silicones will over time accumulate in layers of build-up on the scalp and hair strands, suffocating the scalp and weighing down the hair. So, what does this mean?
The oils on your scalp will need some time to get back into balance as they restore themselves after years of being stripped away, as well as needing time to detoxify any build up. As a result of this, your hair may initially feel heavier or oilier. On the flip side, your hair may also feel more frizzy or dry. Whichever way your hair reacts, it will subside over time and your hair will feel healthier in no time!
How long does the transition period last?
Many of our customers report feeling no difference when making the switch, while others definitely go through some form of detox. It may take anywhere from a few washes to a few weeks for your hair to adjust. Speaking in numbers, the change can take up to 4-6 weeks depending on the amount of build-up in the scalp and hair, but in most cases, 2-3 weeks is enough to find a new balanced state! We always recommend to try at least a full 240ML bottle of our shampoo and conditioner each before determining its effect on your hair.
