Haircare products are everywhere. It's a good thing that they are because while most of us have hair, none of us with hair has the same kind of hair as others. There are so many variations! Not only that, our hair changes as we age and also with the seasons. No wonder there are so many haircare products for us to choose from. We believe that the best haircare products, like all products, are made in small batches by artisans who take special care to produce exactly what you need, and who are available to assist you in using their products every step of the way.
I invite you to check out these six handmade hair care products. Each is made in small batches by Indie Business Network members so you can be sure that they are created with you and your particular hair type and lifestyle in mind.
1. Rapunzel’s Revenge Super Potent Scalp Serum, by Celtic Complexion (North Carolina)
If Rapunzel was in that tower during menopause, her poor prince would have never been able to use her hair as a ladder. It’s a fact: one day your hair is your crowning glory, and the next it’s falling out quicker than your boobs are heading south. With Rapunzel's Revenge, you don't have to worry.
Rapunzel's Revenge is made with 29 ingredients that marinate for two months before being formulated into the finished product. The herbs and spices have been selected specifically for how they help to nourish and moisturize hair. It's a concentrated, super potent formula. You may wish to dilute it with a light carrier oil before using, or just make sure you use very little, because that's all you need.
This product is most suitable for maturing hair.
2. Moroccan Oils Hair Serum, by Kenza International Beauty (New York)
Moroccan Oils Hair Serum combines prickly pear seed oil, castor oil, argan oil, and pure essential oils to nourish and treat your hair. Argan oil is non-greasy and has a host of hair benefits that make it preferable in many ways even to olive oil. Castor oil has been known for centuries to help condition their hair, and prickly pear seed oil is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants that pack a powerful punch. Encased in a lovely white glass pump bottle, this product exudes luxury.
This product is suitable for all hair types, especially dry and in need of conditioning.
3. Natural Shampoo and Conditioner, by Scrubz Body (New York)
This powerful one-two punch of shampoo and conditioner is perfect for any hair type and works well with color and keratin treated hair as well. Ingredients like white willow bark, flower extracts, essential oils, aloe leaf juice, castor oil and rosehip seed oil work together in both products to cleanse and revitalize your hair.
Choose unscented, or from several yummy Scrubz fragrances including Cherry Almond Burst, Lavender, and Coconut Milk.
