Miss Having Squeaky Clean Hair? Try this.

The one downfall to going for all-natural and sodium lauryl sulfate free haircare is that you just don’t get that soapy, lathery, squeaky clean feeling.  Now, technically, we don’t want our hair to be squeaky clean — that means we’ve stripped it of the natural oils that keep it luscious and hydrated.  But for those who use lots of product on their hair, an occasional squeaky clean wash that gets rid of all that built up gunk on the hair and scalp can do wonders for bringing back some serious shine and luster.

In my experience, there are two ways to get squeaky clean hair, without resorting to all those chemical-laden products we used to use.

The DIY Option:


A raw apple cider vinegar hair rinse was one of the first hair DIY’s I ever bravely concocted, and it has never let me down.  By now, we all know the magic of raw apple cider vinegar as an amazing tonic for health, digestion, and skin, but it’s uses for hair are just as potent.  Due to it’s acidity and high levels of natural alpha-hydroxy acid, ACV is amazing for clearing the hair and scalp of built up product, oils, and dirt, and balancing the pH of hair.  This leads to squeaky clean hair that is balanced, shiny, and luscious, without over-drying.

Perfect Remedy for Thirsty, Damaged Hair

Remedy for Thirsty Damaged Hair | The Organic Beauty Blog

As soon as my formerly blond hair starting turning less-than-blond in the 5th grade, so began my lifelong affair with hair lightening.  First it was Sun In (that early-90’s peroxide spray that gave us all beachy sun-streaked hair), then at-home highlights done by my mom, and then later all those professional highlights done 2-3 times a year for the last 20 years.  Needless to say, my hair has been through a lot.  I’ve spent years searching for the perfect remedy for damaged hair that will save my fried locks.  And clearly I refuse to let my hair go natural — oh the non-blond horror!!

Over the years, I’ve developed a routine for healing thirsty, damaged hair — it’s not perfect (there’s no way to completely mitigate the damage from color-treating, especially bleaching, and especially for already dry hair types like mine), but it does turn dry, frizzy locks into more luscious, hydrated hair!

The #1 Secret to Effortless Natural Beauty, Perfect Skin and Hair!

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

What if I told you that you’re slathering toxic, cancer-causing chemicals on your skin every day?

Not to fall prey to sensationalism, but for many of us, it’s true!  Most of the products you are using every day on your skin, hair, and body are loaded with more toxic chemicals than beneficial ingredients.  These chemicals:

  • Dramatically increase your risk of many different types of cancer
  • Cause all kinds of skin issues, exacerbating sensitive skin, rosacea, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, eczema and other irritations
  • Dry out your hair and scalp, cause split ends, and reduce hair vitality and moisture
  • Disrupt your hormonal balance, leading to a whole slew of issues including, but not limited to, fertility issues, PMS, elevated estrogen (for both genders), and weight gain
  • Increase your risk of passing along birth defects to your unborn babies
  • And more general unpleasantries

Plus, these toxic chemicals are horrible for the environment!

But guess what?  Going the natural route is less expensive, more effective, and actually good for your body!  But you need to use the right stuff…

In my next free webinar in my magical, secret-revealing 3 webinar series, I’m going to share:
