With a global climate crisis at the forefront of daily news and current affairs, many clients and beauty lovers alike have begun to re-evaluate their skin care and hair care routines to make the most responsible decisions they can. If you are curious about how you and make your hair care routine more sustainable and environmentally friendly while maintaining beautifully looking hair, look no further! Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence, Kansas, have detailed some helpful tips for implementing a more sustainable everyday hair care routine. Learn more below!
Before you restructure your entire hair care routine, it’s important to remember that small, gradual changes can help make a significant difference. Start by recycling your shampoo and conditioner bottles! It’s widely known that the beauty industry has historically contributed to packaging waste worldwide. While more and more companies are switching to sustainable product packaging, it’s still beneficial to thoroughly wash your empty bottles before recycling them at your local facility. Additionally, many companies offer take-back programs that allow you to ship back non-recyclable materials like hair gel tubs, hair spray triggers, and product caps at no cost. Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence recommend cycling through your current products before opting for package-free and refillable products moving forward!
Not only should you browse for products with ingredients unharmful to the environment, but remember to cultivate a routine of products with sustainable packaging. Many cosmetics and hair care companies commit themselves to offering sustainable packaging options with refillable containers. For specific products like hairspray and hair gel, it may be challenging to find zero-packaging refills, so consider which packaging will still give you the desired look but will be easily recycled. Some of the most recyclable materials that can be infinitely recycled include aluminum and glass!
Do you regularly use a high amount of daily hair care products? One way to create a more eco-friendly beauty regimen is by purchasing multipurpose or multitasking products. By purchasing a body scrub that can also be used for your scalp, or a body wash that doubles as a shampoo, you can save yourself additional trips to the store and reduce your plastic packaging waste associated with purchasing separate products for each purpose. Our stylists encourage all clients to go through their haircare regimen and determine which products could be eliminated or replaced with one multitasking product!
