Move Over Juice Cleanse, There's A New Detox In Town!
We’ve all heard of juice cleanses and we know it’s a go-to way to detoxify and cleanse your body. However, there’s a new detox trend in town that more and more people are turning to. Detoxing your skin and hair routine and choosing specially formulated detox products that make you feel fantastic is becoming a key beauty trend. If you’re keen to know more about why detoxing your hair and skin matters and how you can do it too, we’ve put together this useful guide, as well as our tips for hair and skin products to help you detox.
Why more people are looking to detox their hair and skin routines?
Your skin and hair pick up so many toxins and residues from your everyday environment, as well as from the products you use. These start to build up over time and start to affect how your skin and hair looks and feels. Detoxing helps to remove these residues to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Many people opt for all-natural remedies to get a fantastic detoxifying effect but there are also products that are carefully formulated to give you a great skin and hair detox.
As we all become more aware of what’s in our products, cosmetics, and the environment, as well as the effect they have on us, it’s no surprise that more people want to choose natural options and detox themselves. With a variety of detoxifying products available to suit differing needs, it’s easier than ever to detox your skin or hair at home.
Why is it beneficial to detox?
Detoxing your skin or hair is a wonderful way to restore balance. If you’re noticing dryness and flakiness or excessive oiliness on your body, face, or scalp, it could be a sign that a detox might work for you. Detoxing gets rid of suffocating build-up on the skin or hair, leading to improved health and youthfulness. If you really need a pick-me-up, a skin or hair detox could be just what you’re looking for.
When you draw the impurities out of your hair and skin, your appearance becomes brighter and you’ll feel rejuvenated too. For your hair, this can lead to improved growth and the removal of dandruff and scalp acne, leading to an all-around healthier head of hair. For your skin, detoxing can help to clear acne and imperfections, refresh and hydrate your skin, and boost its youthful appearance. Skin and hair can benefit from a detox at any age.
How often should we detox?
How often you need to detox is dependent on you as an individual. For maximum benefits, detoxing your scalp and hair every 4-6 weeks is a good starting point. If you have particular problems with flakiness or itchiness, you might find that detoxing more frequently is right for you, for example, once or twice per month. When it comes to your skin, it’s widely recommended to detox once every two to three months. However, if you notice issues with your skin like dullness, dryness, or sensitivity, you can detox on a weekly or monthly basis. When you start to see these signs, it’s a good indication that you need to detox.
What is a hair detox?
Put simply, a hair detox is the process of removing dirt, oil, and product build-up and residues from your hair and scalp. This leaves your hair looking and feeling revitalised. This process is typically done with specialist detoxifying shampoo and products that go beyond what your usual products can do for your hair. Many hair detox products also focus on the health of your scalp – this is often where you’ll find the signs that you need to detox and where unhealthy build-up is likely to be concentrated.
If you’re keen to start your hair detox, try out Klorane’s Scalp Detox Shampoo. This revitalising shampoo from Klorane’s Detox range eliminates impurities and build-up from your hair and scalp and is a great choice for all hair types. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your hair, leaving it shiner, brighter, and more radiant, this shampoo is a cooling and deeply cleansing choice.
What is a skin detox?
A skin detox for your face or body involves removing impurities like dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and toxins. Removing these impurities helps your skin to look and feel fresher, as well as more radiant and youthful. As with a hair detox, there is a vast range of detoxifying products that go deeper than the products you use in your day-to-day routine.
At Oz Hair & Beauty, we have a great range of top quality skincare products that are great for a detox. For a deep yet gentle cleanse, try Dermalogica’s Active Clay Cleanser. This product is specially designed to give oily skin a thorough cleanse without depleting its natural moisture, giving you skin that looks fresh and radiant. This versatile product can also be used as a relaxing clay mask – ideally suited to a rejuvenating skin detox.
We know that after cleansing, it’s important to moisturise. A detox moisturiser we recommend is Dr Roebuck's No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturiser. This moisturiser provides hydration and nourishment without feeling heavy. It’s specially formulated to help your skin retain moisture and target dullness and the signs of ageing. This makes it the ideal moisturiser choice for your skin detox routine.
