We all strive for perfect, healthy hair that shines and is hydrated throughout the seasons. However, looking after your hair especially natural hair is no simple job and it requires work and the utmost effort. Caring for our curls can present its own challenges from time to time and choosing the right products with safe ingredients can be overwhelming.
Over the years we have seen toxic hair ingredients such as mineral oil, paraffin, sulfates and many others slowly being eradicated in our favorite hair care products. These ingredients are known to cause life threatening dangers such as cancer, fibroids and hormone imbalance hence why we decided to stay away from these types of products all together.
At Pink Root Products, our ingredients are chosen to nurture all textures and hair types from wavy to curly to kinks, coils and maintain the health of your hair. In this article, we discuss the benefits of some of the natural hair care ingredients that we use in our products.
