4. Temporary Hair Dye Wax

PURC Christmas Gifting Guide ft. Winter Hair Care image4 1

Hair wax is usually used to hold hairstyles in place for long periods, hydrate the hair, and keep it firmly in all-weather situations. And that’s why PURC Organics brings to you the Temporary Hair Dye Wax to add some color to your hair (and life) in winters. It can temporarily fulfill all purposes of setting and coloring, styling, and giving it a cool, sensual, and current appearance. On holidays, parties, events, special occasions, and all-night gatherings, PURC Hair Dye Wax lasts longer and is completely safe to use. It has several advantages for dry, brittle hair. This wax, made with a healthy mix, is free of harmful chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and harsh chemicals that can harm your hair and is ideal for days when you want to look extra spectacular. Psoriasis and eczema sufferers can use it because it is non-comedogenic. Apart from that, the dyed wax is enriched with occlusive compounds that seal in moisture and prevent dryness in your hair while enhancing hair texture, strengthening brittle hair, and instantly hydrating dull and dry hair as it is gentle on your hair and does not deplete your scalp’s natural oils and nutrients.

Just like the colorful baubles we hang on our Christmas trees, our Hair Dye Wax is available in the following colors – Blue, Golden, Green, Grey, Purple, Red, and White.

5. Oplex Repair Bond Reconstructor Kit

PURC Christmas Gifting Guide ft. Winter Hair Care image1 1 2

The Oplex Repair Bond Reconstructor Kit is a three-step hair bonding treatment that helps repair winter-damaged hair by helping your hair regain strength by rebuilding disulfide bonds. These disulfide bonds form when the hair is exposed to chemical treatments, pollution, frequent heat, or intense sun rays, making it prone to breakage. By combining molecules of bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate with sulfur atoms and forming disulfide bridges, the oplex therapy aids in the repair of damaged bonds. 

A bond maintenance shampoo, hair perfecter, and bond maintenance conditioner are included in the PURC Oplex set. It can be used on colored and chemically treated hair without causing damage. The PURC Oplex Reconstructor Kit is a hair rebonding treatment that strengthens your hair, makes it more resistant to color and bleach while also making it shiny. The Oplex Shampoo is sulfate-free and contains Glycerin, Cetearyl alcohol, Sweet Almond Oil, and Jojoba Oil, which nurture and detangle your hair, respectively. This treatment helps reduce dryness and promotes hair development by including these hydrating substances. The Oplex Conditioner works the same way as a regular conditioner, but it’s better at avoiding frizz and dullness while repairing and strengthening your hair shafts. The Oplex Hair Perfecter is a salon-quality at-home treatment with 12.5% active ingredients. If you have or plan to have colored or bleached hair, the Oplex treatment kit is ideal. This will prolong the life of your hair color, strengthen your hair follicles, and give your hair the extra gloss it requires.

6. Moroccan Argan Hair Oil

PURC Christmas Gifting Guide ft. Winter Hair Care image2 4

Perfect for winters, our pure, thick & viscous argan oil made with pressed healthy argan tree nut kernels will help keep you supple and nourished all season long. Moroccan Argan Hair Oil is the best ingredient for repairing damaged and dry hair. High in fatty acids like omega-6 and omega-9, vitamin E, and more, this particular Hair Oil is lightweight and does not weigh down your hair. It will deeply hydrate your scalp, restore damaged hair, and boost your hair growth. The Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids produce a lipid barrier that prevents moisture loss in your hair. They encourage hair development by increasing blood circulation to the scalp. Omega-9 fatty acids also aid in the flexibility of your hair shafts, which prevents hair breaking. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and eliminates pollutants from the scalp. In summary, your hair cuticles effectively absorb nutrients and strengthen your hair using PURC Moroccan Argan Hair Oil. It nourishes your scalp, gives it a silky texture, and provides intense nourishment while improving hair volume and preventing breakage.

Everything You Need To Know About Bath Bombs! image4

It is known that stress accumulated from our hectic work/life routines has harmed our skin and minds over the years. Even personal care and cleaning our skin of daily dirt and grime is considered a task if one considers going to a spa or getting a massage to relax the muscles. But now, tender loving care doesn’t have to come at the expense of blowing your wallet.

This is where the advantages of luxury bath bombs come into play. Bath bombs have recently gained immense popularity are made up of components that are deliciously aromatic and skin-soothing. They offer a pampering experience where you may decompress and rest before bedtime. So, you can toss in your favorite bath bomb and enjoy the ultimate bubbly, fizzy, and luxurious night in.

Bath bombs are appearing in gift guides all around the world, and it’s not hard to see why. They’re a way to make the ideal bath even more beneficial for the mind and body while simultaneously hydrating dry skin. Read on to find out what bath bombs are, what they’re made of, and how they are used below:

What Are Bath Bombs And How Are They Used?

Bath bombs are spherical in shape and single-use mixtures of moisturizing, scented extracts, and oils that you may toss in your tub before taking a bath. The main constituents are sodium bicarbonate (or baking soda), citric acid, and cornstarch, which react with one another once dissolved in water to provide the famous fizzing effect. The bath bomb dissolves and breaks apart due to this reaction, unleashing all of the good stuff inside, including delightful smells, colors, and skin-softening emollients. If the bath bomb includes perfumes or scented oils, they are discharged into the air with carbon dioxide bubbles. There are various ways and reasons for using bath bombs.

Everything You Need To Know About Bath Bombs! image3 3

1. The atmosphere has everything to do with how to use bath bombs. Begin by clearing and organizing the area in your bathroom. Light some candles, dim the lights, and fill your bathroom with plants and greenery!

2. If you need to unwind, why not try recreating a spa-like experience with all the necessary equipment? After the bath, have fresh, clean towels, a clean rug, a velvety robe, and slippers ready to depart.

3. Create the ideal bath and relax while the bath bomb works its magic. Fill your bathtub with warm water until it reaches the perfect depth for you. Then to have some bubbly fun, unwrap the bath bomb and drop it in your tub.

4. Pick your favorite stress reliever – Think about what helps you unwind. The most effective method to get the most out of this experience is to figure out how to use bath bombs on your own. This is the ideal moment to curl up with a good book or flip through your favorite magazine. Put on some soothing music or listen to that podcast you’ve heard about but never gotten around to listening to. You can even meditate if you close your eyes.

Once you’ve found a bath bomb brand you like, and that is open about its ingredients, play around with different aromas to find your perfect blend!

Bath bomb gift sets are an excellent idea for a present. They’re festive, and a bath bomb as a gift is hard to go wrong with.

Are Shampoo Bars More Sustainable Than Shampoo Bottles?

Are Shampoo Bars More Sustainable Than Shampoo Bottles? purcorganics Shampoo Bars More Sustainable Than Shampoo Bottles

Take the high road and opt for sustainable living with shampoo bars.

Our bathing and showering habits have created a massive plastic problem over the years. Plastics are a material that is used in the packaging of shampoos, conditioners, soaps, face washes, scrubs, and even most sponges. Although this wasn’t always the case, increased demand in the personal care sector and changes in how we bathe have contributed to the increase in the plastic landscape. What started as a well-intentioned initiative to promote personal hygiene and access to cleaning supplies has swiftly grown into a thriving industry segment.

Every year,550 million unused shampoo bottles are discarded in the United States alone. This statistic only includes the numbers for shampoo bottles. Imagine what the numbers would be if conditioners, body washes, and other products were included. The problem begins from here as only a tiny percentage of these bottles are recycled. Instead, the vast majority of them wind up in our trash cans. These enormous, bulky plastic containers are a significant source of many homes’ annual waste, with the average American using up to at least 11 bottles of shampoo each year!

The good news is that a variety of zero-waste shampoos and conditioners are now available. These environmentally friendly solutions minimize the need for plastic bottles, reduce shipping-related carbon emissions, and deliver an equivalent and possibly better cleaning experience. One such option is our PURC shampoo bars; they are eco-friendly and made entirely of natural ingredients. With this, you can go a step further and eliminate all the unneeded and potentially hazardous chemicals, resulting in a plastic-free shampoo and conditioner bar that will leave your hair feeling fresh and the environment thanking you.

Solid shampoo bars are becoming increasingly popular and for a good reason. It has the potential to be highly beneficial to the environment. Making the switch means eliminating single-use plastic, lowering your carbon impact, and keeping away dangerous chemicals from the water and the landfills. Take a look at the different aspects of using shampoo bottles vs. bars.

Benefits Of Opting For Shampoo Bars

Benefits Of Opting For Shampoo Bars

Are Shampoo Bars More Sustainable Than Shampoo Bottles? image1 1

1. Shampoo Bars Help In Reducing Plastic Waste 

Each year, almost 11 million metric tonnes of plastic enter our ocean. Shampoo bottles require more plastic for their packaging, whereas we at PURC believe in minimal packaging. It is not unknown that the plastic waste crisis is genuine and harms our environment in alarming ways. Therefore, it’s wise to switch to shampoo bars as they use little to no plastic for packaging. Usually, the material used is biodegradable and recyclable.

2. Made Of Organic And Natural Ingredients

Most shampoo bars are made of natural ingredients and have no added chemicals or fragrance. In contrast, liquid shampoos have harmful chemicals added to them, which get washed down the drain and end up causing harm to our environment. All the products at Purc Organics are derived from non-toxic natural ingredients.

3. Cruelty Free 

Many shampoo bar businesses are working to protect the oceans, wildlife, and ecosystems harmed by the beauty industry’s mass production of chemical-laden goods. Many standard bottled shampoos contain preservatives and chemicals that deplete hair’s natural oils and dry up the scalp. These compounds are frequently absent from shampoo bars. Many of the bars are cruelty-free and feature essential oils and natural components. Another benefit? Palm oil, an ingredient connected to deforestation and environmental destruction, is absent from several shampoo bars.

Not only organic, but shampoo bars are also cruelty-free. We at PURC do not believe in testing our products on animals and are very much against animal testing.

4. Lower Carbon Footprint

Shampoo bars help reduce our carbon emissions since they have a lower carbon footprint than their liquid counterparts. A shampoo bar any day lasts more than a liquid shampoo. Most shampoo bars’ ingredients are less refined and processed than those in a regular bottle. This means that both the product and the package require less intensive manufacture. Even better, they’re a fraction of the size of bottles.

5. Pocket Friendly/Travel Friendly

Shampoo bars are not only environmentally friendly, but they are pocket friendly as well. A traveler’s worst nightmare comes true when airport security searches your bag and asks if you’re carrying too many liquids. And it only gets worse when you open your suitcase after a flight and discover all the shampoo has spilled all over your clothes and things. Shampoo bars remove both possibilities, leaving your case smelling fresh without causing damage to your clothes.

6. Lasts Longer And Is A Money Saver

The majority of shampoos include 80 percent water, while conditioners can contain up to 95 percent water. Shampoo bars are highly concentrated and last significantly longer than bottled shampoos. Most shampoo bars cost less than liquid shampoo and can typically last up to two to three times longer than a bottle of liquid shampoo. This helps save money and time taken for trips to the shop.

7. Convenient To Use

Wet the bar in your palms and knead it into a gentle lather before rubbing it through your hair. You can also run the bar directly through wet hair. Rinse as usual after massaging it into your scalp. You’ll only need a fraction of what you would typically use.

Invest in your hair. It’s the crown you never take off!

Essential oils are extracted using techniques like distillation or evaporation from plants. Although they are known for their aroma properties, they also have powerful chemical properties that benefit hair health. Because of their efficiency and low danger of adverse effects, essential oils have long been utilized in alternative Eastern and homeopathic medicine. An advantage of essential oils is that they can help with hair health. Oils can help with everything from hair growth to providing strength and shine.

Essential oils are used in various self-care products, ranging from body oils to even skin lotions. Many hair products on the market can benefit from essential oils in hair care, especially natural hair care. We’ll explain all the benefits of using Jasmine essential oil as part of your health care regime through this blog.

Introduction & Origin

Introduction & Origin

Benefits Of Adding Jasmine Oil To Your Hair Care Regime image3

Jasmine oil is an essential oil extracted from the Jasmine flower. It has numerous benefits for our hair, skin, and scalp. The scent of jasmine essential oil is sweet, exotic, and intensely fragrant. The more widespread species, Jasminum grandiflorum(also known as royal Jasmine, Jati, Spanish, or Catalan Jasmine), is also utilized for essential oil extraction. However, Jasminum officinale can also be used.

Jasmine is a delicate, evergreen climbing shrub that may reach a height of 10 meters (33 feet) and has dark green leaves and tiny white star-shaped blossoms. It is harvested at night when the perfume is most potent, and a skilled flower picker can harvest 10,000-15,000 blossoms in a single night. The plant has about 300 species, and originally from China and Northern India, it was carried to Spain by the Moors. Today, the most extraordinary essential oils are produced in China, Egypt, France, Italy, Japan, Morocco, and Turkey. The Persian word ‘Yasmin‘ is the source of the name Jasmine. It was used by the Arabs, Chinese, and Indians medicinally, as an aphrodisiac, and other ceremonial purposes. Jasmine tea is a Chinese favorite (though Jasminum Sambac or Arabian Jasmine is usually used) and a popular garnish in Indonesia.

1. Helps Fight Hair Breakage

Apart from its wonderful fragrance, jasmine oil is packed with essential nutrients that help us fight problems such as hair thinning. Weak hair is a reasonably frequent problem that we all have to deal with daily. Chemical methods that drain your hair of its natural moisture, such as coloring, bleaching, and so on, might make your hair weaker. And even specific hairstyles may lead your hair to become more fragile in some areas, causing hair to break more easily. Jasmine oil is known for its hydrating properties, which help to prevent hair damage. It is light and can penetrate the cuticle of the hair to condition it deeply. It also assists in the preservation of natural moisture and elasticity. 

 

2. Helps Keep The Scalp Healthy

Jasmine oil helps us keep any harmful bacteria away from our scalp. It also reduces the possibilities of dandruff and other scalp-related problems, like dandruff and itchiness. A dirty scalp is a severe problem that we all experience at some point. Excess oils in the scalp can not only make it unclean by drawing dust, but they can also make it vulnerable to bacterial infections and dandruff. However, Jasmine oil acts as an alternative to strong anti-dandruff shampoos that clean and sanitize your scalp. It is a well-known antiseptic, and as a result, it’s an excellent oil for cleaning the scalp of bacteria and product build-up. It contains natural therapeutic capabilities that help prevent and remove infections and scalp disorders, including dandruff and dry scalp. 

 

3. Helps With Dry And Rough Hair

Jasmine oil helps fight frizzy hair and softens them. It has conditioner-like properties that help in nourishing and moisturizing our hair. Frizzy hair has become a significant issue in our daily lives. It is difficult to keep hair tamed, and moisture is permanently lost, resulting in frizzy hair. Humidity exacerbates the problem since dry hair seeks moisture from the outside. Jasmine oil controls frizz by generating a conducive environment that hydrates and seals moisture in the hair and scalp. 

 

4. Maintaining long and strong hair helps increase tensile strength and promotes longer, stronger, and softer hair.

Hair that is dry and brittle can appear unhealthy and lifeless. Dry hair can be caused by various factors, including heat, wind, or living in a dry climate. Swimming in chlorinated water regularly can also dry out your hair. Jasmine oil’s hydrating properties condition the hair deeply and aid in moisture retention, making it lustrous, energetic, and smooth. This additional suppleness will prevent hair from webbing, making detangling easier.

5. Has A Heavenly Fragrance

The jasmine oil leaves your hair smelling heavenly with its therapeutic scent. Massaging jasmine oil on your scalp also helps get rid of stress. The wonderful aroma of jasmine oil helps us relax by soothing and calming down our nerves. Anti-depressant, antibacterial, antispasmodic, wound healing, and anesthetic are some of the therapeutic effects of Jasmine Oil.

 

Conclusion

Conclusion

Essential oils help improve the health of the hair at a low cost and with few adverse effects. They are also simple to work with, and combining them with a carrier oil or shampoo and applying it to their scalp daily can help your hair grow, strengthen, and shine.

And just like that, Jasmine oil provides all the nourishment and essential nutrients to our hair, making them grow more robust and less prone to hair breakage. The additional benefit is that it has a beautiful fragrance that lingers even after washing your hair. Because of its strong but pleasant aroma, Jasmine is also incorporated in notes of perfumes. For this reason, it is also used to produce incense sticks. Jasmine essential oil has long been used for medicinal purposes and is one of the first flowers to be distilled for fragrance.

Hair loss occurs when the amount of hair that you lose is much larger than the amount of new hair replacing it. It can be a permanent or a temporary issue. There are a lot of factors that affect hair loss, but if it’s temporary, there are a few things that you can do to prevent and reduce it.

Tight Hairstyles: Hair is delicate and can get pulled easily. When you keep your hair pulled back for long durations in tight hairstyles, it can loosen your roots. This makes it easier for hair to fall out and cause hair loss. It is advisable to give enough rest to your roots. You should not keep your hair tied for more than six hours. At night, it is better to let your hair out or tie it loosely.

Poor Diet And Nutrition: What you eat has a great impact on your body as well as your hair. There are certain nutrients that are required for healthy hair growth. If your hair doesn’t receive these nutrients, they can become brittle and dull. Your scalp is affected by this as well. It can also result in other hair problems such as dandruff and itching. All this contributes to eventual hair loss.

Neglecting Hair Care: Along with eating nutritious food, it is important to provide your hair with external support. Having a hair care routine can help with providing extra care and protection to your hair. Neglecting external hair care can result in unhealthy hair and scalp. This not only makes it easy to lose hair but also makes it harder for them to grow back. Oiling, deep conditioning, and hair masks are some of the ways you can provide your hair with the extra support it needs.

Avoiding combing your hair or not detangling them properly can result in unwanted knots. This creates issues when you try to comb them out. It results not only in knots and tangles but also uprooted hair. Combining tangled hair can put pressure on your healthy hair and damage it. This makes them susceptible to fall out. 

Remedies

Remedies

Protein To The Rescue: Studies have found that low protein and amino acid intakes is a common issue among those experiencing hair loss. Since our hair is made up of a protein called keratin, it is important to take sufficient protein. Often in our diets we forget to include proteins. Especially in today’s hectic lifestyle, fast food consumption can often lead to deficits in our body. Having a diet consisting of carbs, fats, proteins, and vitamins can really boost your overall health. In case you mind it difficult to accommodate everything into your diet, you can also opt for supplements depending on your needs.

Finding The Right Match For Your Hair: Each hair type has its own needs and requirements. Not all hair products suit all hair types.

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image1 10

Because sustainability is no longer about doing less harm, but more good.

With the rise in temperature, greater pollution levels, and number of natural calamities, people are realising the importance of living sustainably. But sustainability is not only limited to the environment. Sustainability is about the kind of development that fulfils the needs of the present generations without threatening the fulfilment of the future generation’s needs. If Earth’s resources are used without any prudence, then soon there would be nothing left for the future! While steps need to be taken at a larger scale through policies, your everyday habits can also contribute towards a sustainable world. Here are seven things you can do to practice a sustainable lifestyle. 

Avoid Using Plastics

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image2 10

Plastic makes up for a majority of the disposed waste, both on land and in sea. Constituted heavily in our everyday life, it is one of the greatest threats to Earth’s life forms. Paper or metals can decompose or be recycled. Plastic, on the other hand, takes upto 1000 years to decompose and can only be recycled twice. Therefore, eliminating plastic from our lives is a necessity. Although it is hard to completely stop using plastic, there are a few things that can be done.

To avoid using plastic polyethene, you can opt for canvas or cloth bags. There are many YouTube videos on DIY cloth bags that can help you make your own bag from old clothes. Plastic straws can be replaced with metal or bamboo straws. This also helps you avoid using paper straws, which saves the trees. Instead of buying plastic bottles, you can carry glass or metal bottles with you. Using silicon or metal containers can also help avoid plastic ones.

 

Reuse As Much As You Can

Since it is impossible to completely stop using single-use products, the next best step is to reuse items. Before throwing out anything, try to make use of it as much as possible. This is done to extend the lifespan of the product.

The plastic containers from your takeout can be used to store food items. Your clothes can either be given away to those who might need it or reused to make household items.

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image5 8

Old rags can be used as dusting or cleaning clothes. Water from cooking can be used to water plants. Detergent water from laundry can be used for cleaning floors and so on. The concept of reuse is not only limited to products, but can be extended to other resources as well.

 

Conserve Water

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image3 10

Water is one of the most crucial resources on Earth, yet 1.2 trillion gallons of it is polluted each year. Multiple life forms depend on water for their existence. Consuming polluted water can cause various diseases. Excessive use of water can also result in lowering the groundwater levels and result in scarcity. Water shortages have been a common occurrence in all cities in recent years.

You can save water in and around your home by making a number of small changes. Turning the tap off while brushing teeth or cleaning your face, taking shorter showers, reusing laundry water are a few steps that you can take. Instead of wasting your drinking water, you can use it to water plants or your pets. You can also opt for methods like rain water harvesting and groundwater recharge.

Save Energy Resources

Another important resource that sustains us is air. Heavy carbon emissions that are emitted from energy fuel consumption can adversely affect the environment. It contributes towards higher temperature rates, climate change crisis, air pollution, and so on. Switching to sustainable sources of energy, thus, becomes important.

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image4 8

You can start with small steps like turning off lights, fans, and other idle appliances when not in use. Use heaters, geysers, and air conditioners only when necessary. You can also switch to renewable sources of energy to power your home. You can also opt for carpooling or travel by public transport. Taking these steps will not only help improve the quality of our life and planet, but also save you money.

Give Away Reusable Items

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image6 7

Oftentimes there are items around our homes that we don’t use and simply throw away. Even though these items could be used by someone else, they might end up in waste. Before throwing out anything it is better to give it away. This will extend the lifespan of the item.

From old books to deshaped utensils, one man’s trash could be another’s treasure. You could donate your old clothes to charities or sell them at thrift shops. Old books, papers, and documents could either be given for recycling. Old books can be given to libraries. Papers could be used for packing purposes. Utensils that are out of shape could be donated to your domestic help or the less privileged. Any items around your house can be given away similarly.

Grow Your Own Organic Food

While buying fresh produce from the market might seem like a wise decision, the truth is something else. The process of production of food involves use of chemicals and resources that harm the environment. The pesticides and insecticides used during farming pollute the water bodies and the atmosphere. Moreover, for the transportation of the produce, fossil fuels are burned. The transportation can even result in water contamination in the oceans and harm marine life.

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image7 4

Growing your own produce can easily help tackle this issue. When you grow your own produce, you ensure it is free of any chemicals or impurities. You also reduce the reliance on long transportation cycles. This will also ensure the freshness of your produce. In addition to all this, you can even help reduce the packaging waste that might accompany market produce. On a personal level, it allows you more liberty in choosing the foods you want in your diet and saves you money as well. 

Plant More Trees

Everyday Tips To Help Us Live Sustainably image1 10

This is something that we have all been listening to since kindergarten. It is true that trees are a solution to multiple environmental issues. From improving air quality to preventing soil erosion, trees are the crux of our ecosystem. One of the most known benefits of trees is oxygen production. It is said that one acre of tree cover can produce oxygen enough to sustain 18 people per year. Not only this, trees also help to remove dust and other pollutants from the air.

The soil around tree coverage areas is often much more intact. The roots of the trees keep the soil in its place and prevent soil erosion and depletion. This also helps in retaining the nutrients of the soil. Moreover, trees also absorb rainwater and reduce the runoff. Groundwater levels also get recharged through this as well as chances of floods are decreased. Trees also help to moderate the climate by balancing the effects of rain and wind. Many animals also rely on trees for their sustenance. This is how planting more trees can help counter multiple environmental issues. You can start by volunteering in plant drives or plant trees in and around your neighborhood area. 

 

Conclusion

Living sustainably is about living a lifestyle that benefits the current and the future generations. It might seem like a tedious task, but the benefits sustainability has are incomparable. It not only helps to improve the condition of the Earth and preserve multiple species, but can also be beneficial to your home and finances.

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image1 9

Before you buy that water bottle, hear us out!

According to a survey, nearly 2.21 billion tonnes of waste is dumped each year. This is because a large majority of the products we buy end up in the trash. Even though you might be giving your waste for recycling, only 30 percent of it is ever recycled. Due to this, a lot of people have turned towards Zero Waste Lifestyle

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image6 6 e1635570771458

Zero Waste is a lifestyle aimed at decreasing the amount of trash that you produce. It is a sustainable and minimalist approach towards life. It focuses on consuming less and wasting less. Although some practitioners try to reduce their yearly waste to a jar, the purpose of Zero Waste is to bring your waste as close to zero as possible.

But How Is Zero Waste Lifestyle Beneficial? 

Zero Waste Lifestyle has a dual advantage. It is beneficial to the environment as well as to your pocket. When you make more sustainable and thoughtful choices, you influence the way products in the market function. While it might seem like going sustainable is hard, the truth is quite different. Being sustainable is as simple as buying thrifted clothes. These small steps can reduce extraction of resources, waste going to landfills, pollution levels and much more. Moreover, when you opt for small steps such as these, you save money as well. By choosing cheaper options and alternatives, you can avoid spending money on unnecessary products.

 

So How Do We Lead A Zero Waste Lifestyle?

 

Stop Using Plastic

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image5 7

Probably the most common but crucial advice ever. Plastic is practically all over the place, from your grocery stores to your friend’s weekend party. It’s everywhere. Plastic is used for its cheap price, accessibility, and easy production, but it poses a big threat to the environment. Known for not being easily decomposed, nearly 380 million tonnes of plastic is disposed of each year.

While you can’t do much about its decomposition, you can help reduce its consumption.

By opting for reusable alternatives, you can save the planet and your money. You start by replacing plastic bottles with metal or glass water bottles that you can carry around. That way you don’t spend extra on packed water and add to the plastic waste. Similarly, using canvas or cloth bags instead of plastic and paper ones is another essential switch. You can even make your own cloth bags from old clothes that you might have. Another change  is using bamboo or steel straws instead of plastic and paper ones. Some brands have also introduced reusable Q-tips and tissues.

 

Consume Sustainably

Try replacing your products with sustainable options. Certain products are known to cause harm to the environment. For instance, cosmetics containing chemicals, products with excess disposable packaging, single use products etc. All these items pose a threat to the environment.

Oftentimes, unthinkingly, we end up buying these products when we don’t even need them. Asking yourself the question, ‘Do I really need it?’ can help you minimise your consumption. This will in turn reduce the waste you produce. This also goes for buying new sustainable products. For instance, even if you want to switch your plastic toothbrush for a bamboo one, do so only after you have used your plastic one to the fullest. 

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image2 9

Utilise the items you have. When you look around your house, you will find a lot of things you can make use of instead of buying new things. If something in your house is broken, it is better to fix it than buying a new product. In case you have something that you definitely don’t want, you can give it away to someone who might.

 

Follow The 5 Rs

We have all heard about the 3 Rs—Reuse, Reduce, Recycle. Zero Waste Lifestyle takes it a bit further. The concept of 5 Rs was introduced by Bae Johnson. She says, “Refuse what you do not need. Reduce what you do need. Reuse what you consume. Recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse. And rot (compost) the rest.”

 

Refuse

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image1 9

Refuse what you do not need.

The simple logic here is that, if you don’t need it, then don’t buy it. It can be hard to refuse buying products when they are so heavily advertised.

But learning to say no can be very helpful. This will help you avoid buying things that you do not need and accumulating trash in your house.

Reduce

Reduce what you do need.

This means to limit the amount of products you use as much as possible. This could mean using less detergent, shampoo, appliances etc. Since you will use less, the waste you produce will also be less.

 

Reuse

Reuse what you consume.

Try to use each product multiple times. The aim is to extend the lifespan of the products you consume.

This could be done by repairing the items, giving them away, or reselling them.

It also consists of getting products that can be reused and not disposed of in a single use.

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image4 7

Recycle

Recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse.

If there are certain things that you absolutely cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse, then recycle it. Simply throwing away the things will not be helpful. Although not all items can be recycled and will ultimately pollute the environment. These are usually the items you should try to refuse or reduce.

 

Rot

And rot (compost) the rest.

Whatever is left should be made into a compost. This includes items like food scraps, fruit and vegetable peels, paper pieces and so on. This compost can then be used to help provide nutrients back to the soil.

Zero Waste Living: The Basics Of A Zero Waste Lifestyle image3 9

Having a Zero Waste Lifestyle might seem like a tough job. But as you start living more sustainably you will realise the benefits of it. You will be saving the environment and your money one step at a time.

It also consists of getting products that can be reused and not disposed of in a single use.

Recycle

Recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse.

If there are certain things that you absolutely cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse, then recycle it. Simply throwing away the things will not be helpful. Although not all items can be recycled and will ultimately pollute the environment. These are usually the items you should try to refuse or reduce.

 

Rot

And rot (compost) the rest.

Whatever is left should be made into a compost. This includes items like food scraps, fruit and vegetable peels, paper pieces and so on. This compost can then be used to help provide nutrients back to the soil.

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair?

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair? image5 6

Control your frizz, control your mood.

In the busy schedules of your everyday lives, you might find it difficult to follow each and every step of a hefty routine. But there are a few steps that you absolutely cannot skip. You might feel that conditioning weighs your hair down or that you don’t need it because it doesn’t suit your hair. The truth is that conditioning your hair is as essential for hair as shampooing.

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair? image8 2

While shampoo exfoliates and clears out the dirt in your hair, conditioner provides the support it needs post washing. Conditioner helps to maintain healthy, strong, lustrous hair.  Hair that is not conditioned is not only likely to be more frizzy, but also difficult to manage and style.

 

Conditioning Provides Protection

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair? image3 8

Constantly styling your hair with chemical products or styling tools is bound to make your hair lose its moisture and natural oils. As you apply conditioner to your hair, it leaves a protective layer on top.

This smooths out your hair cuticles and protects them from damage. While conditioner cannot provide full protection, it can definitely reduce the total damage done. 

Conditioners contain specific ingredients that help to make hair softer and easy to work with. Some even contain certain proteins and agents that help with split ends and volume. This will result in hair that looks shiny and fuller.

Helps Detangle

When you comb your hair without any conditioner, your hair will be drier and get tangled with each other. Conditioning smooths out your cuticle, which makes your hair easy to comb through and less likely to get tangled. Even when you do encounter an occasional knot in your hair, conditioner will make it less painful to detangle.

In case you are hesitant to use conditioner since you have oily hair, fear no more. You only need to apply the conditioner before shampoo. That way the shampoo will wash off the grit and dirt along with excess conditioner. Alternatively, if you have dry hair, you can try leave-in conditioners.

 

Hydrates Hair

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair? image7 3

Along with cleaning away the dirt in your hair, your shampoo can also strip away the natural oils and moisture of your hair. When the hair is not conditioned, it can worsen with the constant styling and pollution. Conditioners contain in them oils and other substances that are supposed to provide your hair with moisture. 

Conditioners form a layer over your hair cuticles and seal them. This way the natural moisture of the hair gets locked in and dehydration from outside doesn’t happen. It also contributes to making your hair less frizzy and provides volume.

In recent years, awareness has been raised about the economical and environmental impacts that hair products have. Since most of the conditioners have sulfatesparabens and silicones in them, they can often be more harmful than useful to your hair.

Why Is Conditioner Important For Your Hair? image5 6

These ingredients can weigh the hair down and dry it out. Moreover, the plastic bottles the conditioners come in pollute the environment.

Ingredient Blog: Cinnamon For Hair Care? image6 4

The perfect condiment for your food and your hair.

If you are looking for a natural ingredient to help restore the health of your hair, then look no further. In fact, look right into your kitchen cupboard. Cinnamon—the spice that adds flavour to our much beloved sweet and savory cuisines. This same spice can also add life to your dull hair. Cinnamon has been credited for many hair benefits. From increasing hair growth to reducing dandruff, cinnamon is considered to be a multi beneficiary cure.

Ingredient Blog: Cinnamon For Hair Care? image5 5

Using PURC’s Cinnamon Shampoo Bar is a great way to incorporate this ingredient in your hair-care routine. Cinnamon’s antibacterial and stimulating properties are well known. It helps in the rejuvenation and growth of hair follicles. It also exfoliates the scalp and prevents itchiness, dandruff, and other hair concerns.

 

Benefits Of Using Cinnamon

 

Improve Hair Growth

Ingredient Blog: Cinnamon For Hair Care? image6 4

Some research has shown that cinnamon helps to encourage hair growth and volume. A compound found in Cinnamon, called Cinnamaldehyde, is known to stimulate the scalp and  enhance blood circulation. This helps in providing adequate nutrients to the hair follicles, which in turn improves the growth of the hair. 

Cinnamon is also a good source of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and phosphorus are some of the nutrients present in Cinnamon. All these also contribute to the health of your hair. 

The hair needs sufficient blood flow to be healthy. When the hair follicles don’t receive this amount of blood flow, hair fall can occur very easily. As mentioned before, Cinnamon helps in increasing blood circulation in the scalp and increases the blood flow.

This could contribute to reducing hair loss. Cinnamon also exfoliates and gets rid of clogged hair follicles, which allows for healthy hair growth.

Ingredient Blog: Cinnamon For Hair Care? image2 7

 

Cures Dandruff

Cinnamon is known to have antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Not only does it remove dirt and grime, but also helps as a cure against dandruff. Dandruff is usually caused by a fungus called Malassezia and Cinnamon’s procyanidins help to prevent it. Cinnamon can also provide protection against scalp irritation and inflammation.

While Cinnamon might have benefits for hair and scalp, it is also noted that applying ground Cinnamon or potent Cinnamon oil to your skin or hair can result in allergies. You could have rashes, redness, inflammation, or irritation. Cinnamon can be used by adding its oil in a carrier oil or adding grounded cinnamon into a hair mask. This is applicable for both Cinnamon oil and grounded Cinnamon. Since the procedure can take long, PURC’s Cinnamon Shampoo Bar can be an easy option.

FAQs

 

1. Can I leave tea tree oil on my face overnight?

  • Yes, you may leave tea tree oil on your face overnight. There is no need to be concerned about how long the tea tree oil will remain on your skin if it has been diluted. Tea tree oil will enter into your skin and is completely harmless if appropriately diluted with a carrier oil.
  • Just don’t apply tea tree oil directly to your skin since it is quite powerful and can burn you. Tea tree oil should not be kept on the skin for an extended period of time if it is undiluted since it is highly powerful and drying.

 

2. Does tea tree oil darken skin?

  • No. Tea tree oil, on the other hand, is most effective as a preventive treatment against black spots. Its power is in its capacity to quickly heal and prevent a blemish or wound from developing, rather than in its ability to erase an existing area.
  • While some say that this oil has modest resurfacing qualities that assist remove pre-existing dark patches over time, this has not been proven scientifically.

 

3. What should not be used with tea tree oil?

  • Tea Tree Oil should not be combined with other active ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, retinol, retinoids, tretinoin, Retin-A, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, vitamin C, and so on. It is preferable to utilise one or the other, not both. Use it no more than once per day – less is more!

 

4. Can Tea Tree Oil be used for daily conditioning?

  • Yes, it works great as a leave-in conditioner. You can prepare a tea tree oil spray. All you need to do is take some distilled water and mix it with a few drops of tea tree oil. Some individuals make this spray using chamomile tea.
  • Whatever components you choose to make your spray, it should contain around 5% tea tree oil. Put this combination in a spray bottle and use it to give your hair a boost of natural conditioning whenever you want.
  • Tea tree oil should not be applied directly to the scalp since it is very concentrated and has the potential to irritate the skin.

 

5. Does Tea Tree Oil Help Your Hair Grow?

  • Yes, by unclogging pores, increasing oxygen and nutrition flow, and eliminating infections, hair follicles may now create healthy, strong hair that is less prone to breakage or hair loss. Tea tree oil may also enhance the health of your hair because it is a natural oil that will not dry it out.
