A New Wave Of Sustainable Hair Care
Minimalism > Maximalism
Sustainability and environmentally friendly are two words we hear a lot these days. But just hearing these words does not make the cut. Implementing changes with strict action is crucial for every modern family. Making lifestyle changes is critical (this is where sustainable hair care jumps in!); it is past time for us to become aware of how we live and what we consume.
We often lose track of what we consume and purchase because of the widespread toxic consumerism culture. Toxic consumerism is something that is rapidly settling into our lifestyles. Our need to constantly want more and more is drastically increasing day by day. We keep buying the stuff we see on TV or in advertisements just because our favorite celebrity has it too. Is it really worth it?
The two biggest industries that are thriving because of this toxic culture are the beauty and fashion industries. Giving into marketing trends by seeing conventionally attractive models pose for these brands can lure us into thinking that buying that product may lead us closer to a lifestyle like that. The only thing that constant purchasing brings us closer to is the depletion of our planet’s natural resources. All we are doing is leaving waste and clutter in the environment for generations to come.
In this day and age of advertising and social media, we feel the need to constantly buy things that really do not benefit us in any way in the long term, leading us to want to live a maximalist lifestyle. . Buying products that we only truly need and benefit us in the long term is one of the smartest ways to be environmentally conscious as well as have a few extra savings.
Here’s a video to watch to really understand the concept of toxic consumerism and its effect on the environment:
How do you fight this battle of a maximalist lifestyle?
Remember, quality > quantity. Make it a life mantra.
- Purchasing sustainable clothing: Instead of buying fast fashion, thrifting can be a great alternative. ( You also get unique pieces every time. How cool!)
- Reducing plastic consumption: We keep reading articles every day about the horrible things and events that occur all around the globe because of this whole plastic pollution problem. But how are we taking steps to further prevent this from happening in the future? Plastic is everywhere around us. Being mindful of what we consume and buy is crucial. Recycling is also important. Keeping separate bins in your home for plastic is a great way to start.
- Zero waste shower: This is a rising trend these days. Your bathroom is usually filled with plastic junk that you won’t end up using, adding to wastage as well as being harsh on your pocket. Using zero-waste products (for example sustainable hair care products like shampoo bars) in the shower can make a huge difference since the change is being made on a more day-to-day basis. Read further to find out more about the same.
So what exactly is a zero-waste shower?
A zero-waste shower is one that aims at using and reusing bath products to minimize the waste going into landfills, the oceans, and other natural beauties. How to go about this?
Using reusable safety blades rather than disposable ones is the first step to a zero-waste shower. You will only need to buy the new blades rather than the whole razor repeatedly.
Using Shampoo Bars: According to Johnson & Johnson, over 552 million shampoo bottles end up in landfills each year in the US alone! Imagine how damaging to the environment that can be. Switching up your shampoo bottles for bars, which is an eco-friendly, sustainable hair care product, can prove to be one of the best conscious decisions you can make. Trust us! These bars are not only better for the environment, but also healthier for your hair, scalp, and wallet. More about why you should switch to shampoo bars Here.
