Hair Care Tips: How to Wash Your Hair Properly
It seems easy to wash your hair. But have you ever considered whether you are doing the best for your hair when you wash it? In the following, we have tried to collect the best tips on this matter.
The first step towards getting healthy hair
At first, it is important to choose the right shampoo. In many cases shampoo contains silicone, which will leave the hair soft and shiny in the first place. But did you know that silicone is a plastic, which encircles the hair and conceals your scalp. This way your scalp can’t breathe which can result in hair loss. Furthermore, this makes it hard for your caring products to get through to your hair and you risk getting dry hair and split ends. Like that silicone harms your hair even though it seems to leave it soft and shiny at first. Because of that, we do recommend keeping an eye on the presence of silicone in your everyday hair wash and conditioner. On this account, we have developed our Colour Care Hairwash and Conditioner without adding any silicone – and it still leaves the hair smooth and shiny because of the Silk Protein and Chamomile Flower Extract.
And now to the actual act of healthy hairwashing
Make sure to make your hair wet with warm water as it will open up the hair cuticle and prepare it to welcome your caring products. Like this, the hair will absorb the hairwash much easier.
When you wash your hair, it is beneficial to wash it twice. The first time you remove dirt, oil and excess hair products. Afterwards, the shampoo can access the hair directly and you will obtain optimal haircare.
Use your favourite quality conditioner and leave it in the hair for a few minutes to give it time to be absorbed.
Finish up by washing your hair in cold water as it will seal the hair cuticle back up.
This is how simple it can be to shape the best conditions for healthy hair!

Tips for a ‘stress-free’ startup after vacation
Hi! Welcome back to The Hair Log. We hope that you all had a wonderful summer and that you are more than ready to get back to work (or school). We enjoyed the sun, the beach and had good experiences with friends and family, we are now ready to return to reality!
When returning after a long and well-deserved holiday many people are most likely to stress in order to catch-up on all the things they think they should do on the first day. Doing so is neither ideal for your mental health nor effective at all. At NATURIGIN we want to give you some tips for a more effective, gentle and good start-up whether you start at work or go back to school.
Organizing and structuring are the keywords
First of all, it is important to create structure and a good overview of whatever you need to do in the first place.
Make a list, organize what you need to do the first day, and what can be done later on during the week. Doing so, you get a clear view of the tasks and thereby hopefully find it more manageable.
You can’t do everything at once
You are only human, Rome wasn’t built in a day, remember that!
Treat yourself with a self-care night
Getting work done is of course important, but for you to do your very best at work, you need to take good care of yourself! We at NATURIGIN encourage you to treat yourself once or twice a week with a self-care evening at home. Make a hair-mask, write down goals for the future, do yoga or read that book you always wanted to read.
When you ‘de-stress’ at home, you are more able to do a good piece of work at your job the following day. That is what we call work/life balance! So, remember to take a break and connect with ‘yourself’. In this way, you will stay calm and make yourself feel better.

Create healthy habits
Now you have the opportunity to start with good habits! Remember to drink a lot of water to keep you hydrated, eat a lot of greens.
What you eat affects your energy level throughout the day. Also remember to activate your body, go for a walk, workout or ride your bike – getting fresh air also helps you to get more surplus in your everyday life.
We wish you all a good day and gently start-up at work or school!

The Festival season has finally begun, and we are so excited at NATURIGIN! We can’t wait for a festival-filled summer, and we have actually already attended our first festival. We are talking about NorthSide festival, which is located in NATURIGIN’s hometown Aarhus, Denmark. Of course, festivals are first of all about music, but there is also a certain expectation in planning the perfect festival outfits and hairstyles 💁🏼♀️
On that note this is our most basic advice:
First of all, remember to bring a refreshing dry shampoo. It is kind of a fact that dry shampoo is an essential equipment for carrying you through the festival weekend with style. Luckily, NATURIGIN’s Refresh Dry Shampoo do not only contain the quality of refreshing your hair but it does also have great styling and volumizing qualities. This makes it perfect for festivals as it deals with the two most important conditions of achieving an amazing festival hairstyle!
We have spotted the trends from this year’s NorthSide festival and wrote a little piece about it. Based on these trends we have made a list with the most inspiring festival hairstyles. Do you have any festival plans this year? If yes – perhaps you will feel inspired for this summer’s festivity? 🥳
We love the playful and girly vibe that these bubble pigtails create. And the best part about this hairstyle is that it actually works better with your second-day unwashed hair. Which makes this hairstyle perfect for the festival season.
THE FLOWER CROWN
It seems that NorthSide festival was prepared for the Flower Crown trend 🌸
The Flower Crown was to see everywhere and did often go hand in hand with a lot of glitter as you can see on the pictures. And best of all – to style your hair with a floral headband is perfect for all hairstyles, whether you have curly or straight, long or short hair.
ACCESSORIZING WITH A HAT
Hats can really spice up an outfit. Try accessorising with a cowboy hat like this young man 🤠
Don’t you think this hat makes the final touch for this couple to capture the perfect festival street style? Furthermore, wearing a hat protects not only your hair but also your face from the burning hot sun. Wearing the traditional sunhat did actually look like a trend on this year’s NorthSide Festival. Look at this young woman looking just fabulous with her cowboy sunhat.
At NATURIGIN we love the combination of the sunhat and her natural blonde waves.
THE COLOURFUL LOOK
Music festivals are the perfect time to experiment with new hairstyles. This is the time to go a little crazy and try something new. Forget about being a boring blonde with the ‘I forgot to colour my hair’-look and try a colourful alternative instead like this brave girl. Look at this colour combination – isn’t it amazing? 💙
In general, we saw a trend of embracing the natural texture of the hair. Look how these girls have styled their hair all natural with bohemian, textured waves, volumizing curls or a fine straight texture.
This makes it so easy to just concentrate on having fun while you’re enjoying the music – and perhaps a drink or two? 🍹 By choosing a hairstyle based on the natural texture of your hair you don’t have to worry about the maintenance of a classy hairstyle which leaves time to actually enjoy the festivity and the feeling of summer. At least we met this lady with the most beautiful natural curls.
To complete her festival look she has spiced her natural curls up with a colourful summer dress – this really makes the final touch! Look how this stunning lady is glowing 🤩
When this is said – remember to enjoy the following events of this summer! We wish you all a great festival season and may your hair shine as much as the summer sun ☀️
