The Scandi Way: Hair Like Rapunzel

We all strive for Rapunzel-like hair, with the perfect length, natural shine and gorgeous bounce. But don’t be fooled into thinking that you have to follow a really complicated regimen to achieve your dream locks. As all things Scandi, we prefer a simple approach: use high-quality shampoos and conditioners, counter heat with serums and oils, and once a month protect your hair with a mask.

Hair Cleanse

If you have beautiful curls, then look no further than CurliMin Shampoo and Conditioner, a sulfate free shampoo that gently cleans, defines curls and gives moisture to the hair. CurliMin contains the unique ingredient Amaze™ which protects against frizz in high humidity, and gives good combability to the hair.

Or, if you have color-treated hair, we recommend our award-winning ChroMin ColorPro Shampoo and Conditioner. Among its natural ingredients is cloudberry seed oil extract, which helps the hair appear shiny and silky smooth with an anti-frizz effect, as well as protects the hair from free radicals and external influences. The shampoo also contains Heliogenol, which protects natural and dry hair from UV rays. Best of all, it reduces the fading of recently colored hair, which means less trips to the salon.

Whichever shampoo and conditioner you use, it’s best to limit your washing to three times a week. Washing everyday strips away the natural oils causing your hair to produce more oil so you’re actually doing more harm than good. Remember, less washing means less blow drying and less heat.

Heat Protection

Blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons…oh my! Whether you style your hair daily or only on special occasions, it’s best to work our award-winning light hair oil into your styling routine. Our Eleni & Chris Pure Treatment Oil repairs and protects your hair without oversaturating, leaving it silky smooth and shiny. It’s made with cloudberry oil and a slew of other natural ingredients like jojoba oil, flaxseed oil, seabuckthorn fruit pulp oil, and crumb abyssinica oil. While our Pure Treatment Oil protects your hair up to 200 degrees, a good rule of thumb is to limit your temperature to the low/medium setting.

Hair Mask

To protect your locks further, consider a monthly nourishing hair treatment. This year our BoostaMin Instant Hair Treatment won the Editor’s Choice in the Beauty Shortlist Award, and we couldn’t be prouder. It is a client-favorite because not only is it easy to use, but it also smooths, protects and repairs hair like no other product on the market.

As part of our holistic approach to beauty and wellness, we would be remised not to mention that the foods you eat also play a major role in the health of your hair. If you are healthy internally, you can exude health externally through your hair and skin. Be sure to incorporate plant-based foods, plenty of water, enough sleep and regular exercise to your daily routine and you’ll have healthy, luscious locks that rivals Rapunzel’s.
