The Hidden Plastics in Your Beauty Regime: A Jill Turnbull Beauty Exposé

The Hidden Plastics in Your Beauty Regime: A Jill Turnbull Beauty Exposé

Unveiling the Truth Behind Beauty: A Critical Look at Plastics in Your Everyday Beauty Products.

Welcome to a world where beauty meets consciousness.

At Jill Turnbull Beauty, we're not just about enhancing your natural allure; we're about revealing truths that the beauty industry often keeps under wraps. Today, we're delving into a topic that's as crucial as it is overlooked – the presence of plastics in everyday beauty products like lotions, hair sprays, and shampoos.

At Jill Turnbull Beauty, we're not just about enhancing your natural allure; we're about revealing truths that the beauty industry often keeps under wraps. Today, we're delving into a topic that's as crucial as it is overlooked – the presence of plastics in everyday beauty products like lotions, hair sprays, and shampoos.

But why should this matter to you? In a market flooded with products promising perfection, it's easy to overlook what goes into these bottles and tubes. Yet, what we apply to our bodies is as important as what we put in them. The hidden plastics in these products don't just affect our health; they have far-reaching consequences for our planet, too.

So, let's pull back the veil and examine the not-so-pretty side of our beauty routines.

Here are five compelling reasons to rethink and choose wisely, empowering you to make beauty choices that resonate with your health, ethics, and environmental consciousness.

1. BEYOND THE GLOSS: The Harsh Reality of Shampoo Chemicals.
Imagine this: a serene morning, the scent of your favorite shampoo filling the air, promising glossy, healthy hair. But beneath this serene surface lies a harsher truth.

Many shampoos, including some top brands, are laden with chemicals like PEG-7M – a substance more at home in industrial cleaners than on your scalp. While creating an illusion of cleanliness and shine, these ingredients strip your hair of its natural oils, accelerate aging, and leave your scalp vulnerable to bacteria.

It's a cycle of damage disguised as care, where substances like dimethicones and silicones build up, suffocating your hair's true potential.

The pervasive greenwashing in the beauty industry masks a disturbing reality: many products claiming to be 'natural','eco-friendly' or 'sustanable' are actually laden with harmful chemicals, deceiving consumers and harming the environment.

— Jill Turnbull

2. UNSEEN SCALP AGGRESSORS: The Impact of Silicones and Dimethicones

When it comes to hair care, the devil is often in the details – or, in this case, the ingredients. Silicones and dimethicones, frequently found in shampoos, are marketed as moisture-preserving miracles.

However, the reality is far less glamorous. These compounds can lead to thinning hair, an itchy scalp, and a loss of natural vitality.

Then there's Vinyl Acetate/Vinyl Neodecanoate Copolymer, a substance reminiscent of glue, often found in shampoos and conditioners. It's linked to serious health concerns like organ toxicity and neurotoxicity, far from the nourishing image portrayed by these products.

3. THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF HAIR SPRAY: Breathing in Plastic.

Hair spray, a staple in many styling routines, contains an alarming array of plastics.

Ingredients like Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) are most hazardous when heated, releasing fumes that can harm the lungs, particularly in sensitive individuals.

This startling reality contrasts sharply with the glossy, perfect images of hair spray advertising, revealing a hidden health risk in the pursuit of beauty.

4. LOTIONS AND MOISTURIZERS: A Closer Look at Their Ingredients.

The lotions and moisturizers we trust to nourish our skin are often anything but nurturing. Take Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, for instance, a common ingredient in many skincare products. Despite its prevalence, it's a substance linked to severe health concerns, including lung inflammation and tumor growth in studies. These findings raise crucial questions about the safety and ethics of ingredients used in everyday skincare products.

5. THE TRUTH ABOUT ANTI-AGING CREAMS: Potential Risks Under the Surface.
Anti-aging creams, a symbol of the quest for eternal youth, often contain Acrylates copolymer, a plastic-based stabilizer.

Far from being benign, this ingredient is a potential carcinogen and can irritate sensitive skin.

It's a stark reminder that what we apply to our skin matters deeply, not just for our appearance but for overall health.

Restore Your Parched Dry Hair

Learn about what products you should use to restore moisture to dry hair.

Today, I came in from walking my dogs and spending the weekend indoors in the cosie heat; my hair looked slightly parched, dull, and limp. So let me share how I turn up the volume with moisture and nourishment for my hair and scalp and how to prevent it year-round.

I loaded my parched dry hair with TREAT and left it on for 20 minutes while I enjoyed a lovely OatMilk Flat White and a few of Aunty Pat's Rum Balls I made this week. 

When the 20 minutes is up, I rinsed out the TREAT and shampooed once with a blend of WASH and SERUM, leaving it on for two minutes to ensure the ingredients are absorbed into my hair and scalp for nourishment, then rinse and condition with TONE. Finally, towel dry and apply the LEAVE.IN. 

Then I will blow dry and style, and my hair is full of body and ready for the elements of the day. I use the TREAT as a pre-wash treatment the night before I shampoo to help throughout the fall and winter.

What Exactly Is Dry Hair?

Dry hair refers to hair that is devoid of moisture or oil. 

Dry hair and undernourished hair has a distinct texture. Unlike healthy hair, hair will feel rigid and rough, and you may experience porosity and breakage. 

There may be less sheen and, in extreme cases, a lot of breakage or damage throughout the hair strands, and the dry hair can even be extremely fragile. 

Let's first determine whether your hair is naturally dry or damaged from heat or chemical damage dry hair.

Dry hair and damaged hair aren't mutually exclusive and often coincide.

dry hair undernourished

Here is the difference:

Hair that is Dry:

  • The scalp is flakey, and the skin is dry
  • Hair is flyaway, frizzy 
  • Hair feels like straw and feels ruff to the touch
  • Hair is thin split ends
  • Hair does not hold a style; curl drops out really quickly

Hair that is Damaged:

  • Hair grows very slowly 
  • Hair feels brittle, mushy when wet, and frizzy when dry
  • Ends are very split and break very easily

Why is my hair so dry?

Whether your hair is naturally dry, suffering from harsh treatment, or both, it all begins at the scalp. When treating dry hair, it's essential to maintain the oils your scalp produces.
Simply put, a dry scalp grows dry hair. Regardless of your hair's natural texture or type, hair health comes down to the integrity of your scalp. A scalp free of debris and buildup is more likely to produce hydrated hair.
To support scalp hydration and cleanliness, the TREAT, an easy-to-use pre-wash treatment, uses a blend of aloe vera, algae, and other vegan proteins, minerals, and plant-based ingredients to gently but thoroughly clear away buildup. The SERUM can also restore moisture to the scalp and maintain the scalp's natural oils, thereby sending moisture onto your strands to tackle dry hair with minimal effort.

The Dry Hair Culprits

You could struggle to retain moisture for many reasons, from genetics to your hair care routine. But once you understand the leading cause of dry hair, you'll be better equipped to start keeping hair moisturized.

Hair Type 

Your scalp produces sebum that naturally moisturizes your hair as it goes from the root and travels down the hair shaft. However, fine hair, medium, and thick hair types can all feel like dry hair without adequate moisture. In particular, curly, coily, or otherwise coarse hair can be prone to dryness because its naturally flexible and porous texture makes it harder for the sebum to reach down the strand, making the ends dry and brittle. And as we age, our scalps produce fewer natural oils, and our natural sebum production becomes much slower. You can compensate for the change by using moisturizing products. Hydrate and moisturize your scalp and hair with moisturizing products, and use a daily moisturizing leave-in conditioner; use moisture-based shampoo and conditioner. In addition, plant-based proteins strengthen the hair with proven long-term results. Bye Bye dry hair!

Hair Care Routine

Even if your hair routine is relatively standard, it might be harsher than you assume. Styling products laden with harsh ingredients can leach moisture from your hair when used over time. Frequent styling with hot tools like flat irons or curling irons can break down the hair's integrity, and a blow dryer set at high heat can also be harsh. Heat styling, dyeing, bleaching, or any process that chemically alters the outside of your hair and dramatically changes the inside. 

Bye Bye dry hair!

Environmental Factors

If you're struggling with dry hair, it's essential to look at environmental factors as a possible cause. 

For example, too much sun or dry winter weather can put strands under strain and create dry hair. If you live in a bustling city, pollution can create buildup that contributes to clogged pores on the scalp, preventing moisture from reaching your strands. 

Even healthy habits can have a negative effect without proper protection — swimming, for instance. At the same time, a tremendous mindful practice can make hair feel straw-like and rough after exposure to dehydrating saltwater or chlorine. Bye Bye dry hair!

The Hydrating Moisture Solutions

Dry hair is the bane of natural beauty enthusiasts. But, as you have learned, hair can dry for various reasons, ranging from heat styling to environmental damage. Regardless of the cause or culprit, one thing is clear — you won't be dealing with dry hair for much longer. So treat your hair to better days and consider these fantastic options for restoring moisture and nourishing dry strands. Bye Bye dry hair!

Mask Up Weekly

A deep conditioning pre-wash hair treatment once a week helps moisturize your hair regularly, setting you on the path to alleviating a dry scalp and dry hair. In addition, deep conditioner and leave-in products can help re-fortify the cuticle and encourage additional moisture so hair can grow strong, with body and bounce, and without breakage. Take your hair routine further with  TREAT, packed with plant-based ingredients. Our best-selling hair mask features scalp and hair wellness made easy; RESTORATIVE TREAT is formulated for intense, targeted soothing of your scalp and repair of dry, damaged hair.100% vegan alternative to deeply hydrate your scalp and hair and prevent moisture loss. Bye Bye dry hair!

Change Your Shampoo Schedule

Even if you use the most moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, washing your hair too often can cause scalp dryness and strip your hair. A dry scalp can lead to dry hair, so if your washing too often and have dryness, it's time to change. 

Start with moisturizer thru the mid-lengths and ends of your hair before shampooing; this will protect your hair; you shampoo out the moisturizer and not your natural oils from your hair. 

Start slowly and give your hair time to adjust. At first, skip one wash day a week; then add and remove another wash day the following week. 

If your hair starts to feel softer or your scalp feels less irritated, this could indicate that you've begun restoring natural oils to moisturize hair organically.

Use a dry powder shampoo to help thru the week. Bye Bye dry hair!

Choose Sulfate-Free 

To support moisturized, dry hair, avoid products containing sulfates. To find out if a product contains sulfates, look for "sodium lauryl sulfate" or "sodium laureth sulfate" on the ingredient list. Sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners (as well as leave-in conditioners) will help. 

If you use a daily shampoo and conditioner, choose a moisture-based option. Our carefully curated everyday essentials, WASH and TONE, cleanse your hair and scalp while strengthening and protecting. Elevates your color longevity, and you can say goodbye to hair breakage with this formula suitable for all hair types. Bye Bye dry hair!

Use Friendly Oils (Not Silicones)

Many cheap drugstore shampoos and conditioners contain silicones, synthetic polymers that help detangle hair and add shine, but many silicones can build up on the scalp and perpetuate dry hair. They might make your hair feel silky and soft, but they do nothing for the condition of your hair. Silicones create a physical coating around the hair shaft to repel water, and they're used in many products because they make an inexpensive detangling shine.

Make Your Way to Hydrated Hair

Whether you're struggling with dry hair or just want to begin working on your hair's healthiest state, there are simple steps to restore moisture and elasticity and transform the overall look and feel of your hair. With simple steps and gentle products that will be kind to your scalp and hair, learn to pay attention to what your hair is telling you. Soon, you'll be well on your way to the healthiest hair. Bye Bye dry hair!
