After realising hair products on the market for textured hair contained harmful ingredients, founder Moleboheng Matee created a haircare and skin range free from chemicals and other synthetic ingredients.
“I noticed that most products contain harsh chemicals that have side effects that can cause damage to the hair and skin. So I needed products that are safe and can work without causing any harm for my daughter’s skin and scalp, that’s when I started doing my own research and discovered that the organic route is the best choice,” she says.
She says it took a lot of convincing for consumers to see the amazing results. “It was a huge challenge. Believe me, it was not an easy ride. Most people were a bit skeptical about using organic products. Change is not for everyone and people would rather stick to what they know and what they are used to,” she reveals.
Matee’s company, Turn Heads Naturals, is dedicated to offering organic products across South Africa. The company’s product range contains a beautiful concoction of moringa, pro vitamin-b, rosewater, natural oils and shea butter among others to leave your skin nourished. They are certified organic and natural, and are also cruelty-free.
While African women should be proud to treat their hair and skin like royalty, navigating the world of beauty remains a challenge for them.
Their common skin concerns include hyperpigmentation, acne and excessively oily skin.
Traditional products contain chemicals and other synthetic ingredients that may irritate their scalp and any other skin it comes in contact with. Organic hair and skin products, on the other hand, contain natural ingredients such as proteins, vitamins, essential oils, and fruit extracts.
Some of the benefits of using organic and natural products include:
They are safe to use
Consumers are increasingly wising up about the ingredients used to produce skincare and hair products. Whether you have sensitive skin, or are wary of harming your skin with chemicals, organic products could be an answer. However, finding organic products is difficult because some brands may use “organic” even if products contain a small amount of organic ingredients.
Generally, they contain fewer ingredients and no harsh chemical, which means there’s much less chance of them causing irritation. What’s more, natural health and beauty products use natural preservatives that won’t affect your skin.
One good example of a safe product is African Black from Turn Heads Naturals. It heals skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. Even more, it can relieve irritated skin and leaves your skin radiantly beautiful. You can also use it as a shampoo because it contains high natural properties.
2. Organic products are eco-friendly
When ingredients for natural health and beauty products are farmed and manufactured organically, fewer chemicals are put into the air and water.
Rose Water is made purely from rose petals grown in and picked in the Middle East. The water retains as much of the precious rose oil as is possible, giving it its unique smell and healing properties. It is rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamin C, can fight aging and restore skin health. It also balances oil, reduces redness, tones, hydrates and contains anti-inflammatory properties while it visibly brightens skin.
You get better value
While organic hair and skin products may have a higher price tag, they leave you feeling satisfied. Also, when you weigh the pros with the cons, you’ll find that organic hair products give you better value.
