What to Expect During Your 14-Day Hair Detox

What to Expect During Your 14-Day Hair Detox

The start of a new year inspires us to think about the way we live and how to make improvements in all aspects of our lives -from how we nourish our bodies to the beauty products we use every day. If you've been looking to kick off a clean beauty regimen, there's no better time than now to get started. Though everyone's 14-day hair detox journey can look a little different, here are a few things you can expect during your experience.

No matter your hair type or texture, there's a detox for you.

Whether you're looking to clear product buildup and dead skin cells, rebalance your scalp, or nourish your strands, any hair type can definitely benefit from a hair and scalp detox. We've made it easy to get started with a simple detox quiz to build your hair care routine based on your hair type and texture. It all starts with the Detox Hair Mask to refresh your hair and scalp. You'll follow it up with a shampoo and conditioner that's catered to you (there's one for medium textured or color-treated hair, fine hair, and thick/damaged hair) and end with a few spritzes of Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner for extra hydration. From thick curls to fine, straight hair, there's a detox routine that'll help you regain the healthiest version of your hair.

You'll want a game plan on what to do with your existing conventional beauty products.

Committing to the 14-day hair detox challenge means a complete transition to clean hair care products. So, if you know that you're about to run out of your existing products, have your clean hair care replacements ready to go. But no worries if your shelves are stocked with conventional beauty products that you'll no longer use. Organizations like Share Your Beauty will accept new, unopened, and unexpired hair care products (and other beauty items) to people in need. Project Beauty Share will also take donations of lightly used hair care products as long as it comes in a pump, tube, or bottle.

You'll find clean beauty ingredients are really effective.

Using non-toxic, natural ingredients is just as powerful as conventional products. The technology and science behind our high-performance formulas are super-effective without compromising your health with parabens, silicones, sulfates, or other questionable ingredients. The Detox Hair Mask uses the power of charcoal, kaolin clay, and certified organic vinegar to deep cleanse your hair and scalp without stripping it of its natural oils. When you rinse your hair with our shampoos, you'll be surprised by the luxurious lather that leaves hair feeling clean, but not squeaky. The Color Awakening Hairbath, for instance, is crafted with shea butter and honey that lock in hydration while delivering softness and shine. All of our conditioners are designed to increase moisture, detangle, and eliminate frizz with moisturizing ingredients like rice bran oil and aloe for happy, healthy hair.

Results can take time.

Some people notice a difference in the way their hair looks and feels right away and a one-week detox is all it takes to experience a full transformation. For others, their hair detox journey can take about 14 days. There are a few factors that might affect the length of your detox: It could depend on your specific hair type, environmental pollution, the level of buildup you have from dead skin cells and styling products, and how frequently you wash your hair. If you're brand-new to clean hair care products, try another application or two of the Detox Hair Mask to thoroughly remove unwanted build up from silicones, waxes, and microplastics. In other words, don't give up if you feel like your hair detox isn't working right away -consistency is key.

You'll discover a hair detox is a great part of self-care.

When you transition to a clean hair care regimen, you'll re-learn how to love your hair all over again. Pay attention to how your hair and scalp feels when you're feeding them with good-for-you ingredients and nutrients. And, when your hair starts accepting the nourishment from healthy formulas, each day your wash or style becomes a hair ceremony for you to reflect on what you love about your hair. While you're in the shower waiting for your Detox Hair Mask to soak into your strands, it's the perfect opportunity to close your eyes and focus on a mantra, affirmation, or sending good vibes out into the world. If you need some inspiration, just check out the affirmation on your Detox Hair Mask packaging:  "I willingly release what no longer serves me."

You'll get a deeper understanding of what it means to go clean.

There's a lot of information out there about clean beauty and you'll quickly discover that every brand has their own definition of what it means to them. At Innersense Organic Beauty, we commit to the highest standards of purity in every product. In other words, we did all the research, testing, dabbing, and sniffing for you so that you can fully trust the process. Here's a little refresher on what you can rely on with our formulations:

  • Ingredients straight from nature, grown organically and sustainably without chemicals
  • Ethically harvested and sourced from trusted, transparent plantations, orchards and farms from around the world

You'll feel inspired to detox other areas of your life.

Once you get familiar with how certain parabens, sulfates, and other toxic ingredients affect the health of your hair through your 14-day detox, you'll feel empowered to discover new ways to detox other parts of your skincare, bodycare, and makeup routines. However, don't feel pressured to make a complete upheaval of your life -it's all about baby steps to creating a brighter, healthier future for yourself (and the planet).
