5 Easy Tips to Make Your Hair Routine More Eco-Friendly


Are you looking for ways to make your hair routine more eco-friendly but don’t know where to start? Here are five easy tips to help reduce your impact on the environment while taking care of your tresses.


  1. Ditch The Heat

Reducing the amount of heat you use on your hair is not only good for your tresses but also the environment. Using less power means less fossil fuels are being used to generate electricity. So, put down your straighteners and hairdryer and try air-drying your hair using a microfibre towel turban instead. You could save approximately £13 on your energy bill and prevent around 26.8kg of carbon from being released into the atmosphere each year.

  1. Assess The Frequency Of You Washing Your Hair

Did you know that if one in four people in the UK washed their hair once less per week, we could save 98,000 tonnes of carbon in a year? That’s the equivalent of planting 16 million trees! To reduce your water usage, try cleansing your hair and scalp every 7-10 days with a mild sulphate-free shampoo like Swish. Shortening your shower time and turning off the tap while brushing your teeth can also help save water.

  1. Stop Using Toxic Products

Many mainstream hair products contain toxins linked to disease, even if they’re marketed as natural or organic. It’s important to read ingredient lists and find brands that use safe, effective, and simple ingredients. At Afrocenchix, we take pride in offering vegan-friendly products that are free of harmful chemicals. Learn more about our products by watching our video on the benefits of natural ingredients.

  1. Upcycle Your Empties

Recycling or reusing your beauty product containers is an easy way to contribute to a greener planet. Check out our article on how to recycle beauty products for more tips.

  1. Investigate The Brands You Use

Research the brands you love to ensure they prioritize the environment. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and voice your concerns. At Afrocenchix, we’re committed to using organic ingredients and completely recyclable packaging to minimize our environmental impact.

By implementing these tips, you can make a positive impact on the environment and maintain healthy, beautiful hair.
