One of the first things people will notice about you when they see you is your hair. Because of this, many people put an emphasis on having hair that looks nice. As time progresses, many people are moving away from natural hair care and moving to chemical hair care. This transition, however, isn’t without certain risks.
Many store bought hair care products contain potentially harmful ingredients. Some hair straighteners, for example, contain formaldehyde. If you remember dissecting frogs in science class, you should remember that formaldehyde is the chemical used to preserve the frogs until dissection day. If you want to give the gift of healthy hair to a loved one without having to give them potentially harmful products, consider making a natural hair care gift basket.
Decide on the natural contents
The core of any hair care gift basket is the contents you decide to put in the basket. When your gift basket is going to be made up of natural hair care options, you have to find high-quality items that are going to work with the person’s hair. There are some basic ingredients that can go into any natural hair care gift basket.
Natural oils, such as rosemary oil, moisturize the hair and can add a subtle scent to the hair. Applying these oils also gives the recipient a chance to massage the scalp, which is said to boost circulation in the area to promote hair growth.
You can also include items to make hair masks or rinses. Green tea, for example, is an easy addition to this natural hair care gift basket that can help to encourage healthy hair growth. If you choose to include the ingredients for a hair mask or rinse, make sure that you include a card that contains the instructions on making and applying the mixture, as well as information about how the mixture will help the hair.
Add in the accessories
Any natural hair care basket should include a thick towel to facilitate rapid drying. You should also include a wide tooth comb so the recipient can comb through damp hair. If the hair care basket contains something that needs to be mixed, include a small bowl and a stick to stir the mixture.
Natural hair care baskets that are going to be given to women with long hair should contain fabric bands to hold the hair. You can also include Velcro rollers or other rollers that don’t require heat to work.
Perfect the presentation
When you put the gift basket together, find a container that complements the design scheme of the recipient’s bathroom. A large wicker basket is a great choice for any bathroom, but your imagination is the only thing limiting the design of the basket.
When you put the hair care items into the basket, use the towel as a base. You can then position the other items in a way that looks nice. Wrap the entire basket in a cellophane sheet gathered at the top and secured with a ribbon.
