Say hi to Hello Joyous!
An organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
I often get asked about my hair care routine and while I'm flattered, I'll be honest in saying it wasn't always this way. It wasn't until I made the switch to natural personal care products (including natural shampoo & conditioner) and started paying attention to my diet, lifestyle and supplement regime that my hair started to grow thicker and become shinier!
As part of an #AskJoyous YouTube series I've been doing, I'm going to be answering a question from the Joyous Health community today and that question is:
"I struggle with frizzy hair. What is your har care routine?"
In my newest YouTube video, I answer this question for you so you can have healthy, luscious, frizz-free hair!

Hello Joy, Can you explain why applying an acid to your hair helps with the frizzies and makes it silky smooth? Thanks, ErinReply
Hello Joy! Love your blog, thank you for sharing your wealth of information, I especially love your videos! Can you please recommend a quality hair powder? I've stopped using my go to brand after discovering it's made from propane and butane! So gross! WTF! Seriously what garbage! I've been using regular baby powder since, but alas that propane stuff really did do the trick. Not gonna lie, it was actually pretty awesome and I miss it terribly. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Nicole, a great brand is "skinny skinny" dry shampoo. It's all organic and very affordable. I buy mine at 889 Yoga in Toronto. I would suggest googling it to find a retailer near you or purchase online. Hope that helps!
Hello Joy, I am just wondering what you would suggest for thin oily hair? I try not to wash my hair every day (usually I go 2-3 days without), and use a dry shampoo for days I don't wash. I still feel like my hair is dull after a few months of doing this. Any tips?? Thank you!Reply
Hi Danielle, When you say "dull" do you mean lack of shine or lack of body, because the dry shampoo will dull down the shine (that's how it gets the oil out, by absorbing it). You might want to be sparing with the dry shampoo if that's the case. Have you tried the apple cider vinegar rinse Joy mentions in her video? I've found that to be a huge help.

I want to share a very simple hair mask with olive oil. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil on my hair and comb your hair carefully. Wait for about 30 minutes, then use your hands to massage the hair gently for 1-2 minutes. Wash off with water. That's all. I apply this 2 times per week.Reply
Thanks for sharing! Kate - Joyous Health Team
Hi Joy, Can you offer any alternatives to fish oil supplements (allergies get in the way of taking any supplements with fish products)? Thank you so much :) SonjaReply
NutraSea brand has a vegan DHA which is not sourced from fish but algae. Hope that helps!
Hi Joy! I really like the idea of making my own beauty products, but I struggle with aple cider vinegar, I read some studies where they said it makes hair more brittle. What is your experience, have you ever heard about that? Also, I really really struggle with the idea of accusing non-natural beauty products. Are they really that bad? Is the all natural always the best flr you? Doesn't science/beauty product manufacturers know enough about what is good for your body and what isn't? Please help me, I love your work, I'm just kind of sceptical. Thank you! PS: could you give us any tips on how to clean pores? Thank you! :) :)Reply
Hi Adela, It's a great point, and it's true, not all chemicals are necessarily harmful. However, many of them aren't adequately tested and we tend to gravitate toward the philosophy of "if you wouldn't eat it, don't put it on your body" because if it's safe to eat, you can be absolutely sure it's safe to put on your skin. It's a "better safe than sorry" kind of approach. We haven't had any experience with ACV making hair brittle. If anything, it's made our hair stronger and shinier. Kate - Joyous Health Team
