Our hair is as individual as we are and, much like our skin, it can be vulnerable to environmental factors. The weather, product build-up and pollution can all affect the health of our hair and leave us defenceless against bad hair days. To help you keep your hair happy and healthy we reveal some common hair care sins and how Green People’s specially formulated hair care range can help you to redeem them.
YOUR SIN: LUSTING OVER FRIZZ-FREE HAIR
If you’re losing the fight against frizz you’re not alone. This hair care concern is so common it even has its own hashtag: #fightthefrizz. Many of us are aware that humidity can cause hair to become frizzy but, that’s not the only factor at play. Harsh foaming agents such as SLS, pollution and chlorine can all cause our hair to lose moisture, giving it a brittle, frizzy appearance.
YOUR REDEEMER: MOISTURISING SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
YOUR SIN: A GLUTTONY OF PRODUCT BUILD-UP
If you love to slather on serums and regularly expose your hair to dyes, hair perfumes or oils you could find that your hair is weighed down with chemicals causing your locks to lose their lustre. This is because hair and scalp has a delicate PH balance and regularly exposing it to alkaline chemicals and silicones can cause it to become vulnerable to dryness, split ends and scalp irritation.
YOUR REDEEMER: CLARIFYING SHAMPOO
To revive hair weighed down by product build-up, wash your hair with our Clarifying Vitamin Shampoo. Made with Aloe Vera, Avocado, Mandarin and Bergamot it deeply cleanses and injects strength and shine back into the hair. For optimum effect, treat your hair to a weekly hair mask after shampooing by using our Clarifying Vitamin Conditioner. This naturally detoxifying conditioner should be left on for ten minutes before the hair is rinsed thoroughly with warm water.

YOUR SIN: HAVING AN UN-ENVIABLE AMOUNT OF OIL
Is your hair looking more greasy than glossy? The scalp produces sebum to help protect your hair from damage, but too much of it can mean that you end up with greasy roots. Using SLS chemicals on the scalp? Stop. Harsh foaming agents like SLS, can strip away natural oils, making the scalp over produce sebum and causing the hair to become even greasier.
YOUR REDEEMER: IRRITATED SCALP SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
To be slick against grease start at the root of the problem. The scalp generates oil naturally but if your hair is weighed down by chemicals they can prevent the oil from being absorbed by the hair. If you find your hair gets greasy quickly switch to our Irritated Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner which provide a gentle cleansing action for oily hair whilst helping to normalise sebum production.
YOUR SIN: INCITING THE WRATH OF AN IRRITATED SCALP
Perhaps the biggest hair care sin of them all, you can incite the wrath of an irritated scalp by applying chemical-based products to the hair. SLS, petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances are all commonly used hair care ingredients that are known to cause scalp irritation including itchy scalp, dandruff, eczema and psoriasis.
YOUR REDEEMER: SCENT FREE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
To soothe your scalp, switch to a shampoo made with skin-kind ingredients like our Scent Free Shampoo. Aloe Vera and Green Tea are well-known anti-inflammatory ingredient with antioxidant properties while pineapple extract, Bromelain, can help break down the dead skin cells that cause dandruff. After use, massage our Scent Free Conditioner into wet hair for one minute to help stimulate scalp circulation and further reduce irritation.
YOUR SIN: A GREED FOR HEAT TREATMENTS
Blow-drying, straightening or curling can all take its toll on delicate hair, leaving it coarse and weak. Whilst heat protectors can be effective they are often made with harsh chemicals and contribute to product build-up in the hair.
YOUR REDEEMER: INTENSIVE REPAIR SHAMPOO
If your hair has been feeling the heat, help it to recover by using out Intensive Repair Shampoo. Rich in nutrients and proteins, it strengthens hair that has been chemically-treated or damaged by frequent blow-drys.
YOUR SIN: BEING TOO PROUD TO PROTECT FROM POLLUTANTS
Pollutants can cause free-radicals to damage the hair, making it appear dull and lifeless. Unfortunately, even those who live in low pollution areas can still be at risk as one of the biggest causes of free-radical damage is UV-light.
YOUR REDEEMER: QUINOA & ARTICHOKE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
To protect against pollution, treat your hair to our Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo and Conditioner. Made with Quinoa protein, they contain high levels of amino acids and antioxidants which help keep the hair strong and shiny while Artichoke protects hair from, and even reverses, the damage caused by UV exposure.
