Let’s get a little fancy here with Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hair Crème. Check out this video with my friend Stephanie, and then read below for a little backstory.
A few years ago I was in a quandary because my daughter needed to have her hair in a particular style for a performance. With her hair, the style was impossible without product. Generally, I am a “no product” mom. I don’t even use it on myself. For the most part, what my hair wants to do is what my hair does, with very little input from me. It’s one of those daily unpredictabilities that keeps life interesting.
Nonetheless, my daughter needed to have her hair sleekly styled on top of her head. Conventional products would not only make her hair crunchy (not a word that should go with hair) but worse, envelop her in a cloud of phthalate-filled, hormone disrupting, synthetic fragrance for the entirety of her evening. And no one should die for a dance performance.
As has happened before (in my search for the perfect face wash), I found that what I needed was right in front of me. I knew the Hair Crème was a great leave-in conditioner and frizz-tamer. It’s one of the few things I ever do put on my hair when it gets a bit too wild and crazy. But it hadn’t occurred to me that it could help with something fancier.
I worked a few pumps through her hair, and up it went smoothly and easily.
This didn’t save the day only that one time. Despite how accidentally I stumbled upon this usage, the Hair Creme has been a hugely great help time and again for all sorts of long hair types and styles.
Only organic ingredients. Only essential oils for fragrance. No petrochemicals. No synthetics.
And while you’re decked out for your night on the town, your hair just thinks it’s getting a several hour hair masque.
