So I made a video. I got a few requests to do a tutorial on my buns so I thought I would try out video form. Would love to hear your feedback on this!

I was at a grocery store today and thought about my previous post where I shared my two favourite conditioners, and some of the healthy, organic ingredients for both. 

However, two summers ago, I began using Herbal Essence’s Hello Hydration conditioner (HEHH), and it really gave me great slip and made detangling so painless to do. But, within a month of use or so, I noticed that my scalp was itching like crazy and so I took a further look around my crown area and saw that I had white, flaky buildup. So while perusing many hair care sites to see what the problem could be, I read about the purpose of silicones, and why they need to be removed by sulfates:

  • Hello Hydration (as well as Aussie Moist) contains a silicone called bis-aminopropyl dimethicone—a chemical that is water-insoluble, meaning it cannot be removed without the use of a sulfate, which are cleansing agents that are found in many commercial shampoos, body washes, and dish detergents. (Sulfates strip the hair of its natural oils & can be very irritating on the skin—not good). 
  • The purpose of silicones are to coat the hair to make it smooth by reducing frizz, give it shine, and to give hair that nice “slippery” feeling that aids in detangling.  But….
  • Because silicones coat the hair, they create a barrier—thus not allowing for any product (including water) to penetrate the hair shaft. That also explains why I was not able to effectively moisturise my hair, and why it was drying out so much.

SInce all water-insoluble silicones require sulfates to be removed and because they also cause buildup overtime, I personally stopped using HEHH. I love the fact that now I can actually feed my hair with healthy, organic and all-natural ingredients—which is the best part of the change, including my use of a sulfate-free shampoo, Shea Moisture’s Moisture Retention Shampoo and Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar which both contain awesome nutrients. I can truly feel and see the benefits since going sulfate and silicone-free, and my curls and coils also remain poppin’ lol. 

Is anyone else silicone or sulfate free? What has been your experience?

Decided to re-do the front of my hair this morning to make them a bit more smaller and more uniform looking than they had looked the previous week. 

This style was my version of the roll & pin on two strand twists, which included a bun. The ends of my hair are well protected :-) These photos were also taken on my new camera. I love the quality!
