Hair Care for the Green Warrior
Who doesn’t want to look good and feel good? I think we all do. Inside that collective ‘We’ there is a subset of people who want the same as everyone else, but they have a deeper desire. One to make a difference for themselves, but more importantly, for the planet. They are what I affectionately call Green Warriors. A Green Warrior is someone who is interested in making personal choices that help make a positive impact on the planet in real ways. It doesn’t mean they are perfect, but they try to make a difference where they can.
They are the ones who are willing to break the cycle of short single use and long disposal impact for long and multi use with minimal to zero disposal impact. Even with the smallest choice, we can make a profound difference to reduce global devastation and improve natural habitats. Our Green Warriors inform our approach to Hair Care at Très Spa. This is who we created our unique,a s close to nature as possible, hair care line for. We can all be Green Warriors.
Packaging is only part of the story
The simple choice of using our solid shampoo that is organic and 100% pure plant powered makes a difference. The first obvious difference is the fact it’s not in a bottle so there is less plastic waste and less pollution in creating plastic bottles that could end up in waste heaps.* But to be truly planet friendly, we believe you have to dig deeper and consider the ingredients that go into the finished products. Ingredients that are synthesized in a lab could have upstream and downstream adverse impact. What happens to an ecosystem when the plastic and other pollutants in that hair gel leaches into the water system? What kind of chemicals had to go into creating the super synthesized hair product and what was the refuse from their manufacturing? Don’t even get me started on the problems with fragrances!
Plants have power
We rely on plants in all of our hair care products. With the exception of the 1% preservative in our amazing hair gel, the only ingredients you will find are plants. Plants have amazing power and are perfectly balanced in their natural state. They have a bounty of nutrients that are extremely beneficial in supporting our health. The materials are easily harvested and can effortlessly be assimilated by humans. Perhaps this is why, for many centuries, plants were our only medicine. For the hair care, we carefully select the plants to work in harmony with each other to provide the maximum nutritional benefit that hair needs. Plants are either cold pressed, steamed, or minimally processed in order to extract the botanical matter. We harness all that natural power to formulate our full line of hair care: Organic Shampoo, Hair Hydro, Organic Hair Oil, and our natural Hair Gel.
Our goal was to create products that are very effective yet so gentle on the environment that there would be no downstream adverse impact. Since Très Spa hair care products are formulated from nature they are safe to go back to nature. You could be in the middle of the most delicate of eco-systems on the planet and trust that you can use our products freely without causing any harm.
