What is herbal natural hair care?
Herbal natural hair care is an innovative and holistic approach to hair maintenance that uses natural herbs and oils instead of harsh chemicals.
Instead of relying on these potentially damaging chemical-based products, herbal natural haircare uses plant-based ingredients to nurture and strengthen your hair.
This can mean different things depending on the product.
So some may contain natural cold-pressed oils like jojoba and argan oil, while others may be based on traditional plants and herbs with healing properties such as lavender or rosemary.
Many of the best herbal natural hair care products will contain a power-packed combination!
This type of hair care can have a range of benefits since it nourishes and heals the scalp and hair with vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.
Unlike traditional hair care products, herbal natural haircare does not just mask or cover up hair issues such as dandruff, brittleness, or breakage.
It works towards finding the root causes for these problems, allowing for sustained beautiful healthy hair and growth.
Not only does using the best natural herbal haircare products help to avoid build-up from traditional products like shampoo and conditioners over time, but it also allows your hair to regain its shine, softness, and strength naturally.
Herbal natural hair care is a great alternative to try if you're looking for an effective yet gentle way to look after your hair!
So let’s discover more about 3 of my favorite herbal extracts and plant power that can help strenghten your hair without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Let’s start with one of my go-to ingredients for naturally strengthening hair that needs no introduction! Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera for natural hair strengthening
Aloe Vera is an amazing natural remedy for many skin and hair issues. It's no wonder it's been used for centuries for medicinal purposes.
When it comes to strengthening hair, Aloe Vera works in a few different ways. First, its high water content helps to hydrate the hair, leaving it smooth and less prone to frizzing up.
Aloe also contains enzymes that work to break down proteins in the hair shaft that can give a coarse or unruly look to your hair, giving a much sleeker finish to the whole hair shaft.
It also has natural anti-inflammatory properties which help to calm any inflammation of the scalp that could be contributing to the coarseness of your locks.
So another of my super favorite natural herbal ingredients is the lesser-known Chebe powder.

Rosemary for natural hair strengthening
Rosemary is a long-worshiped natural hair remedy.
Not only does it tackle frizz and flyaways, but its shine-boosting properties leave your hair looking sleeker and healthier-looking.
As rosemary oil is a natural plant extract, you don't have to worry about the harsh chemical effects of traditional relaxers that are notorious for damaging the scalp and even cause permanent hair loss.
Best of all, it's so easy to use! A simple DIY tip is to simply brew some rosemary in hot water and let it cool before adding it to a spray bottle and applying evenly throughout your hair.
Rosemary, along with other Herbal natural extracts such as the supercharged fenugreek are gentle on your hair and scalp and can provide lasting sleek, and strengthening results with regular use.
Ok so with more info about three of the best natural herbal products to hit your straightening goals, read on to find out some of my best hints, tips, and hacks to help you get started with herbal natural hair strengthening.
Make sure to use quality products
Not all herbal natural hair care products are created equal.
Look for high-quality brands that contain only pure, organic herbs.
Avoid anything that contains artificial colors or fragrances, as these can cause irritation and damage your hair.
Use a deep conditioning treatment
Before beginning the strengthening process, make sure to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment.
This will help hydrate and nourish your hair, making it easier to strengthen.
Apply some natural oils
If you are using any heated appliance such as straightening irons, then make sure you apply some natural oils such as coconut or olive oil to lock in moisture and protect your hair from further damage during styling.
Or look for natural herbal hair care products that contain moisturizing ingredients like argan or coconut oil.
This will help shield your tresses from heat-induced damage while keeping them soft and hydrated.
You should also make sure to set the flat iron on its lowest setting before starting. This will ensure that you won't accidentally burn any strands during styling.
We love our Aloe Vera and Rosemary Spray, which is packed full of organic, natural ingredients and works beautifully as a heat protector too!
Its non-greasy formula and delicate mint scent also help to repair dead scalp cells and relieves any scalp irritations.
Work in sections
I’m sure I don’t need to remind you pro-natural hair care lovers that instead of trying to manage all of your hair at once, work on each section individually.
This will ensure that it’s easier to apply any natural hair treatments while also ensuring each strand is coated
Keep it conditioned
No matter how much time you spend straightening your hair, be sure to use a deep conditioner after styling so your hair stays healthy and looks its best.
Regular conditioning should also be done weekly or biweekly to maintain the health of your hair and scalp.
