NATURAL HAIR TREATMENTS AND SPRAYS

Most hair sprays, hair treatments and hair styling products are littered with toxic and suspect ingredients that are no good for your hair, or for our planet? Have you checked the ingredients list on your hair spray bottle, or that deep treatment your hairdresser just put in your hair? It is like a chemistry experiment, and you are the guinea pig. Learn here what to look out for to protect your health, the health of hairdressers and our planet.

Most products that you find at the chemist or supermarket, and even at your hair salon can contain formaldehyde-releasing preservatives which are known cancer-causing chemicals. You will also find a heap of petroleum-based ingredients which strip our hair of its natural protective oils leaving it feeling limp, dry and just blah. And, with most of us using multiple styling products, the negative effects just continue to build.

We love using natural hair treatments and sprays in our hair care routine because the ingredients deeply condition and restore our hair.

We know that finding natural solutions to style and nourish our hair can be tricky, because we are each so unique.

In your Wanderess Beauty Box, you will find some of our favourite natural and non-toxic hair products that will help restore and style your hair without product build-up, scalp irritation, and toxic damage. Each brand is Australian born and passionate about treating our hair with the utmost natural and pure ingredients.

Rustic Peppermint – Hair Potion

Rustic Peppermint began in our minds a long time ago. We wanted to share our Vegan journey with others in some way, but we didn’t quite know what that looked like at first.

In 2013 we became Vegan (after many years of vegetarianism) and started reading the back of everything! Starting with ingredients on food packaging, then onto skin, beauty, hair and cleaning. We couldn’t believe animal products and bi-products were in so many things as well as how many brands still test on animals. Then it became very apparent that so many so-called “natural” brands were adding synthetic or toxic ingredients.

So, we started to make our own products. Simple, natural and vegan. Nothing over the top and nothing fancy. Just products that worked for us!

We began making Lip Balms after finding beeswax in many. Our friends and family used them and praised us, so we knew we had something special! We also spent a lot of money on many different brands of Vegan and Natural Deodorants but were never happy with them so we spent months and months formulating, trialing and testing our own until we found something that worked. A few years after making things for ourselves and our friends and family our wonderful business Rustic Peppermint began!

Believe us when we say that a little bit goes a long way with this oil and we strongly suggest to start off with 1/2 a pump and add more if your hair is thick. 

This oil is rich and full of lush and 100% pure oils. We have not diluted this hair oil with water, silicones or anything that could build up on your hair. The oils will penetrate into your hair and replenish each strand.

Apply a very very small amount to wet or dry hair to seal the ends. Or use as a hair and scalp massage oil and wash out.

Uses

  • Use as a hair and scalp replenishing oil. Massaging the scalp and neck and leave on hair for 20 minutes minimum. Must be washed out thoroughly with shampoo. 
  • Use as a hair oil/serum to treat dry and damaged ends. Only a VERY small amount is needed. (1/2 – 1 pump is ideal but add more if hair is thick and or curly)
  • Can be used on wet or dry hair

Rasasara – Hair Dust

Rasasara Skinfood has manufactured & supplied the health & wellness industry with premium Ayurvedic skincare since 2003.

Wholly Australian made and owned, Rasasara Skinfood is a brand committed to promoting beauty & wellbeing with handcrafted, edible, organic & cruelty-free products. A prescriptive range of face, body & hair care, ingredients of the highest quality nourish the skin whilst offering traditional Ayurvedic healing to the body, mind & spirit.

Recently picked up by Urban Outfitters in the USA & Canada, the brand is now enjoying a much larger presence internationally, owing to clean & simple, minimalist branding with an emphasis on beautiful botanical imagery. As such, products also fit perfectly into carefully curated, boutique gift & designer stores.

Dusting is often overlooked in our beauty rituals of today. Traditionally used by indigenous cultures, dusting with herbal powders offers natural, anti-bacterial benefits for the body, & a tonifying, calming effect for the mind & spirit.

Natural dusts, made from grains, bamboo or clay, absorb excess moisture, from the body & hair, as well as functioning as gentle deodorant or perfume – owing to the inclusion of 100% essential oils.  When applied to the skin or hair, Ayurvedic dusting powder provides an instant refresh leaving your skin/hair moisture free, revitalized, clean & soft.

Apply a small amount to the hair at the root to achieve fresher, more manageable hair; or dab onto pulse points or underarm to release perfume.

Edible ingredients:

*Cornflour,Bamboo Extract, Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin) Leaf Powder, Saffron (Crocus Sativus) Strands & Oil, Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin),& Olibanum (Boswellia Sacra) Essential Oils. *Certified Organic

SURPRISE

ApothecaryBeautyCo – Natural Vaseline

ApothecaryBeautyCo is a site where you can purchase high quality, effective, cruelty-free, and non-toxic skincare products for health, beauty, and well-being, at affordable prices. All ApothecaryBeautyCo products have been formulated and compounded by me, a pharmacist with a passion for non-toxic, good quality skincare essentials.

Over the past couple of decades there has been an increased awareness of how harmful ingredients in skincare and cosmetic products can affect our health. We know that what goes on our skin is absorbed into our bodies, so it makes sense to reduce the amount of toxins we put on our skin. With that in mind, we have created products that do not contain parabens, SLS’s/sulphates, triclosan/triclocarban, phthalates, EDTA, mineral oil, or any other toxic ingredients; only safe, effective, and cruelty-free raw ingredients are used. There are no fillers or any unnecessary additives; every ingredient is there for a purpose.

Whilst we appreciate that not all synthetic ingredients are harmful (and conversely, not all natural ingredients are harmless), we prefer to use mainly natural ingredients. Synthetics are used only if absolutely necessary, and, if used, it goes without saying that only non-toxic ones are used.

We include essential oils in most of my products. Their cell-rejuvenating and beautifying properties mean they are a perfect inclusion in natural skincare. Their uplifting aroma has mood enhancing properties and provides an amazing scent – naturally!

We use compounding skills learnt at Pharmacy school and maintain the same high standards required for the compounding of extemporaneous pharmaceuticals. Suggested expiry date, directions and precautions for use of each product are indicated in its etsy listing, on its label, or are enclosed with the product.

All products are handmade in small batches so you can rest assured that the product you receive

Petroleume jelly is a by-product of oil refining; it is derived from crude oil and is a mixture of
hydrocarbons. In fact, the majority of hydrocarbons found on Earth naturally occur in crude oil.

Petroleum jelly also contains xenoestrogens, substances that mimic oestrogen. Xenoestrogens are also
known as EDC (Endocrine disrupting compounds) as they can disrupt our endocrine (hormonal) system.
Xenoestrogens have been linked to Precocious Puberty (premature onset of puberty) and other
disorders of the reproductive system.

Moreover, mineral oil does not contain any nutrients. Why use a product that does not bring any
nutrients or hydration to your skin when there are so many amazing oils that are full of goodness
available?

Natural oils and butters are much better choices than petroleum jelly; they are nourishing, seal in
moisture and do not come with the risks.

Castor oil is made from the plant Ricinus communis, or castor bean. The main active component in
castor oil is considered to be ricinoleic acid (RA), which exerts analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and
antimicrobial effects.

Castor oil is a humectant and is also very moisturising – the triglycerides present in castor oil help to
restore the skin’s natural moisture balance, making it a perfect choice for softening and smoothing a
dry, parched skin.

Jasmine Sambac absolute has been added to give a subtle beautiful scent to the product.

This is a multipurpose ointment. The texture is very similar to that of commercial petroleum jelly. Simply rub into cracked or dry skin!
