Hair: my styling essentials.

Aug 26, 2017 | 2 comments

/ Over time I have really tried to minimize my consumption of hair care products. As I have mentioned before, it has been a about trying to cut off unnecessary “miracle” products, and stick to what works and also has the least impact not only on myself and my body but also our environment. We stopped using hairspray a few months ago, and instead we make our own completely natural, easy and budget friendly (get the recipe HERE).

Som med så meget andet herhjemme, har jeg med tiden også forsøgt at minimere mit forbrug af hårpleje produkter. Som jeg har nævnt før har det handlet rigtig meget om, at skære unødvendige “mirakel” produkter fra, og holde mig til det som fungerer, og også gerne er mindst muligt belastende for ikke blot mig selv men også vores miljø. Vi droppede bl.a. at bruge hårlak herhjemme for nogle måneder tilbage, og laver nu i stedet vores egen helt naturligt, nemt og budgetvenligt (få opskriften HER).

/ The oil from Meraki has been shown on the blog many times, and it’s great because it can be used for more than one purpose. I use it in my hair instead of conditioner and also if I would like to add a little extra shine in dry hair – just a little bit is enough. And then it’s organic and comes in an environmentally friendly packaging. I usually have my hair loose and preferably also make a little waves or curls in it. After that I put in a little bit of wax. Sometimes also a little bit of volume powder. This one called OSIS is really good. Recently I actually read that you can use cornstarch as a natural replacement for dry shampoo/volume powder. As soon as this one is empty, I will definitely try to remove the lid and pour in some cornstarch instead!

Olien fra Meraki har I efterhånden set mange gange her på bloggen, og den er fantastisk netop fordi den kan bruges til mere end ét formål. Jeg bruger den i håret i stedet for balsam og også hvis jeg gerne vil tilføje lidt ekstra shine i tørt hår – bare en lille smule er nok. Og så er den økologisk og kommer ikke mindst i miljø-venlig emballage. Jeg har for det meste mit hår løst og laver helst også lidt bølger eller krøller i det. Efter det putter jeg en lille smule voks i (svarende til en ært) og evt. også lidt volume pudder. Denne OSIS fra Schwarzkopf er rigtig god. For nyligt læste jeg faktisk, at man kan bruge majsmel som erstatning for netop tørshampoo/volumepudder. Så snart denne er tom, vil jeg helt prøve at tage låget af og putte majsmel i i stedet!

    The Meraki hair oil is no longer available. What would your alternative be? I’m in the UK.

    Thanks Janet

      Really I swear by this oil, so I haven’t tried many other alternatives to be honest. I know many people love organic coconut oil as a great multipurpose alternative both for your hair and skin. Organic argan oil would work too! x
