The Fake Shine of Silicone versus Natural Oils
Silicone seems to offer fantastic benefits.
Unfortunately, like many things that ‘sound too good to be true’, it’s actually a quick-fix that doesn’t work - it actively damages your hair over time.
What is silicone? It’s the most abundant compound in the earth’s crust - a hard and brittle crystalline solid. It’s used to manufacture glass, bricks, pottery and semiconductor materials in electronic computer parts. By now you may be thinking… why am I using products that include this plastic-sounding ingredient on my hair??
What silicone does is provide a hydrophobic coating for your hair. The trickery is simple, it lies on the surface of each hair, waterproofing it. It creates a Fake Shine – making the hair look smooth, shiny, lubricated and conditioned. But it’s not!
That Fake Shine actually damages your hair. It doesn’t allow the hair shafts to breath. It reduces moisture, weighs the hair down, increases hair breakage, attracts dirt and grime and dries the hair out making it brittle and lifeless over time. Not a good option for healthy hair at all!
To top it all silicone does not break down easily and is potentially hazardous to the environment. It’s similar to plastic.
Is there a solution? Very definitely… Robyn Kramer is an expert in her field. Her range of natural oils has become the front runner in the Abyssinian oil category. Her MyAbby™ Abyssinian Face Oil Rose was selected as Product of the Year in the Care and Beauty sector, a South African first, at the 34th SANA International Exhibition for Organic and Natural Products in Bologna, Italy.
“real shine occurs when your hair is properly hydrated and healthy”.
Robyn firmly believes that keeping the skin on your scalp and body well-nourished with the nutrients it requires for repair and cell turnover is the key to healthy hair and skin. She’s totally committed to 100% natural, gentle products.
“A sustainable alternative is to use natural oil products for your hair that are gentle, provide nutrition and allow your hair to breath. Natural oils make sure that, in both the medium and long term, your hair will actually really be healthy (NO Fake Shine)”.
