Happy Skin Equals Happy Hair
Pay attention to what you're putting on your skin. Any product can claim to be 100 percent natural, but not all natural things are good for your skin, so read your label carefully — the more organic ingredients the better, and it should end with a clear list of all essential oils.
Some companies will list a "blend of proprietary essential oils," which is great, but there are certain essential oils that are not good to use directly on your skin. Cinnamon, bergamot, grapefruit, and lemon are a few of the common oils that can cause irritation or sun sensitivity.
When it comes to smell, the most important thing to look out for is "fragrance" listed on a label. This usually indicates an artificial fragrance, which can have a variety of harmful chemicals such as phthalates, which can throw your hormone-making endocrine system for a loop.
