The Importance of Hair Care
Having healthy hair and scalp is important and not just for appearance’s sake. It impacts comfort, self-confidence, stress levels, and can even serve as an indicator of overall body health.
Using natural hair care, sans chemicals, is also important. As the amount of junk in products has gone up, so too has the incidence of hair and scalp conditions. This is no coincidence—things like sulfates, parabens, alcohol, fragrance, and gluten, now commonplace in hair care, are proven irritants and are even potentially dangerous in the long run. With sulfates connected to dry or frizzy hair and general irritation, and parabens connected to hormonal issues and cancer, this simple glimpse at the effects of such chemical additives already shows that they do more harm than good.
That is why pHat 5.5 leaves them all out, replacing them instead with a variety of “superfoods” straight from nature. Manuka honey was recently approved for medical use in hospitals in order to treat wounds and heal damaged skin; it is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal, as well as anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants. Aloe vera is incredibly soothing, moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory, but it also delivers a potent dose of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants straight to the scalp and hair. The Australian botanical cehami encourages cell regeneration, moisturizes, and reduces irritation, itching, and inflammation.
As the final touch, we make sure all our products are pH balanced to match the native pH level of the skin and scalp. This ensures less irritation, a friendlier environment for healing, and an intact acid mantle (the skin’s natural protector).
With such potent and effective ingredients and qualities, these products get the job done whether it’s to soothe uncomfortable symptoms or simply cleanse and moisturize. Infused with the best nutrition nature has to offer, pHat 5.5’s hair care products then pass that nutrition on to you—leaving your hair and scalp clean, nourished, and healthy.
