Default Au Naturale Poll

Let's try this again.

How "natural" do you like your natural hair product stash to be?

Sorry. I've tried twice and even though the system says you can create a poll, it isn't working so there must be some "kinks" in the system.

The options were.

A. Only All Natural products
B. Mostly All Natural products
c. Half All Natural, Half Non-Natural
D. Mostly Non Natural
E. Only Non -Natural.

Id say, mostly natural. Something at close reach no long waiting times to get my product. But as long as it has no silicones, parabens, mineral oils, sulfates, or petrolatums, or drying alchohols im fine

Probably B, but very close to A.

B., but I try products with polyquats and silicone at times. Hell, I even try stuff where I don't know the ingredients *cough* Deity America *cough*...

Also, I know you wanted this to be a poll, but what is your definition of "natural"? My definition and understanding of what is truly "natural" has changed over time. Emulsifiers and preservatives get a pass if the rest of the ingredients are indigestible in my definition.

C. I have a mixture. I enjoy natural products but I'm fine with using non natural products in my hair as long as they benefit the feel and look of my hair as well as not cause damage. I limit silicone use and totally avoid mineral oil and petroleum.

I prefer option A, only because I have extremely sensitive skin and I'm allergic to a lot of common cosmetic ingredients.

I'm B. My hair is happier with a mostly natural regime. Some people think using all natural or mostly all natural products is expensive but it doesn't have to be.

B/C. I don't have the budget for a completely all or mostly natural regime. And since not natural products haven't done too much damage to my hair, I can't see myself going completely natural because why fix what ain't broke?

C. My hair likes man-made stuff sometimes. It depends on what it is.

I just go with whatever my hair responds best to/smells good.

Same!! I stay far far away from mineral oil and petroleum. But I like having a mix 😌
