While you can’t avoid all toxins, you can control what you bring into your home. The fewer toxins you have in your home, the lighter your toxic load. The lighter your toxic load, the more efficiently your body can tackle and eliminate toxins you do encounter!
Reducing the number of toxins in your home is a step-by-step process. Here are three things you can do to remove toxins from your hair care routine.
Have you ever read the ingredients labels on hair care items—from shampoos and conditioners to styling products and hairsprays? Take a close look at what you’re using and then choose natural alternatives for anything you need to replace.
The doTERRA hair care line offers clean, safe, and natural formulas you can trust. The line is free of sulfates, silicones, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, parabens, and artificial fragrances, so you’ll have peace of mind when you wash and treat your hair. The doTERRA hair care line includes Protecting Shampoo, Daily Conditioner, and Leave-In Conditioner, which works as a heat protectant and detangler on top of being a conditioner.
Also included in the doTERRA hair care line are Shampoo and Conditioner Strengthening Bars. These bars also feature clean, natural formulas you can feel good about having in your home. Instead of the more common liquid form, they deliver shampoo and conditioner in concentrated, solid bars, which save water, reduce shipping impact, and eliminate the need for plastic bottles.

Sometimes your hair needs extra care. Whether you’re trying to encourage soft and smooth hair, make your hair smell great, or keep a new hairstyle in place, turn to a homemade, natural solution instead of a synthetic, chemical-ridden product. You can make all kinds of hair treatments at home using products you may already have on hand. Check out some of these DIY hair care solutions: herbal hairspray, deep conditioner, essential hair wax, and dry shampoo.
You don’t fill your water bottle in the shower, so you may not have thought about filtering that water. But a showerhead filter can reduce chlorine and sediment in your water, which makes the water gentler on your skin and hair. It also makes maintaining and cleaning the shower easier. You can find a showerhead filter at almost any local hardware store and likely install it yourself.
