Lovely Locks: Why You'll Love Root Haircare!

by Kelly Ross on January 16, 2017

So your skincare products are from Root, your favorite mascara and lipstick is from Root, but what about your haircare? If you're still using toxic drugstore shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, and more this post is for you! Root's haircare line, Pretty Hair Day, is packed full of the best all natural ingredients around and will leave your hair happier and healthier than ever before! Read on to find out why you should make the switch, regardless of your hair type!

Conventional haircare products, both from drugstores and salons, contain ingredients that are not only harsh on your hair, but also extremely harmful to your health and the health of your family members. Some main ingredients of concern commonly found in haircare products are...

  • Sodium Laurel / Laureth Sulfate (SLS)
  • Parabens 
  • Polyehtylene Glycol (PEG) Compounds
  • Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea, DMDM hydantoin (Formaldehyde Releasers)
  • Ethanolamines (DEA, TEA, MEA)
  • Benzophenone, Oxybenzone
  • Fragrance
  • Synthetic Dyes

These ingredients, among others not mentioned here, have been linked to health issues like skin irritation, immune system toxicity, and even cancer. Aside from the potential health risk associated with regular exposure to these chemicals, they also do nothing for the health of your hair! For example, Sodium Laurel Sulfate and other similar ingredients are what cause shampoos to foam when exposed to water. While this may be something you associate with your hair 'getting clean,' it is actually stripping your hair of its natural oils. This leads to more dryness and breakage.

The good news is that not only is Root's Pretty Hair Day line free of all the chemicals mentioned above, but each product is formulated to cater to the genuine health of your tresses! With zero water in any of Root's haircare products, you can expect highly concentrated formulas that yield impressive results. The light citrus scent thanks to all natural essential oils makes this line unisex appropriate as well!

Pretty Hair Day Shampoo

This gentle, highly concentrated shampoo will nourish your strands and leave them soft, tamed, and hydrated. Because this formula contains no foaming agents, the washing experience will feel different; it may feel like your hair isn't being coated in product and not getting fully clean. However, after a couple of washes you and your hair will adjust to the new process and you'll be rewarded with voluminous hair that stays soft and clean longer than ever! The key is to fully saturate your hair with water, rub a quarter-sized amount of shampoo in your hands, and work through your hair beginning at the crown. This formula is also fantastic for maintenance of color treated hair. It has drastically improved the health of my processed blonde hair! 





Pretty Hair Day Conditioner

The blend of natural botanical extracts, oils, and butters in Root's conditioner make it a true stand-out product! This conditioner leaves hair feeling intensely hydrated, while still maintaining weightless body. Unlike most conventional conditioners, you can use the Pretty Hair Day Conditioner from root to tip without worry of your hair becoming greasy at the crown! I recommend using a nickel to quarter sized amount depending on hair thickness and length and leaving in for up to 5 minutes before rinsing. 





Pretty Hair Day Glossing Hair Mask

Damaged and dry hair's best friend! This hair mask is rich, silky, and intensely nourishing. I use this mask in the shower after shampooing and conditioning with the Pretty Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner! It is most effective when given about 15 minutes to soak into the hair. I also love to apply a small amount as a heat protectant on the ends of my hair before blow drying and styling; I've noticed significantly less breakage from this! The Pretty Hair Day Mask can also be used as a leave in conditioning treatment, and even works as a medium hold styling gel when you use Root's Pretty Hair Day Hairspray over top!


Pretty Hair Day Hairspray

This unique spray is a must-have for anyone wanting to keep their tresses in place while avoiding the harmful chemicals in conventional aerosols. With a fresh and pleasant citrus scent and a sleek glass bottle, this hairspray is as appealing to the senses as it is effective! The unique aspect of the Pretty Hair Day Hairspray is that is it touch activated! Simply apply a few sprays and then tousle, tame, or shape hair with your fingers as desired; in around 1 minute your hair will be set. This mist hairspray offers light to medium hold, based on the amount of product used. 




All of these products are available in trial sizes for you to test out for yourself before committing to full size! Each trial size Pretty Hair Day product is good for up to 5 uses.
