It’s that time of year once again… Though still in the throes of holiday merriment, our thoughts begin to focus on the new year to come—and the ways we can make the next 12 months even better for ourselves and our lives as a whole. At SEEN, we take the health of the hair and skin pretty seriously, so naturally we lean towards resolutions of this variety, and we’re sharing them with you!
Resolution #1: Commit to a heat protectant
Blow-drying, flat-ironing, and curling can take a toll on your strands—but we all want to go the extra mile to help our hair look its best (at least once in a while), right? The secret to helping your hair stand up to heat without getting fried and frazzled is heat protection. Blow-Out Creme, Curly Creme, and Magic Serum are formulated with hemisqualane (a plant sugar-derived alternative to silicone) that provides a buffer to protect your hair from up to 450º heat regardless of the styling tool you use.
Resolution #2: Air-dry when possible
We’re going to stress the “when possible” here because we know how life works. If you automatically start your heat-styling process after getting out of the shower, stop for a moment and check your schedule. Perhaps a loose bun, ponytail, or braid can take you through the weekend or until your next big meeting. And remember, air-drying can yield smooth, sleek strands or soft, defined curls when you use one of our styling creams and add a few drops of Magic Serum.
Resolution #3: Give your scalp the TLC it deserves
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp—and the scalp itself can experience issues such as dryness and flaking. Using gentle hair-care products that are free of potentially irritating and drying ingredients like sulfates is a great place to start. In fact, in a dermatologist-graded study of 30 patients with dry, flaky scalp, 93% experienced improvement in dry scalp after using non-medicated SEEN Shampoo and Conditioner for four weeks. Spoiler alert: Our first new launch of 2023 is something you and your scalp will be really happy about!
Resolution #4: Choose hair care that respects your skin
Any product that you use on your hair comes in contact with your skin—but when you use SEEN you always know your hair and skin are in a “safe place.” All of SEEN’s products are non-irritating, safe for sensitive skin, and non-comedogenic (which means they won’t clog pores). As an added bonus, all of SEEN’s fragrance-free hair-care products have received the National Eczema Association’s (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™, which is basically a green light for anyone with sensitive or eczema-prone skin. Our products are also formulated to get their jobs done without disrupting the skin barrier, and this includes our Face Wash and Body Wash so you can wash every square inch of your body without worry.
Resolution #5: Keep your personal-care regimen “clean” and sustainable
Whether you’re chemical-conscious, eco-conscious, or both, SEEN has you covered. Our vegan, cruelty-free, PETA- and Leaping Bunny-certified formulas steer clear of questionable ingredients, and avoid many common irritants and emerging allergens —without compromising on results. We’re also proud to offer sustainable packaging (and continually looking for ways to further minimize our footprint), and we’re working on expanding our Eco-Liter refill family. Even more, we’ve partnered with EcoCart to provide carbon-neutral shipping. (Click here to learn more about our sustainability efforts.)
With 2023 upon us, we’d most like to thank all of you, our loyal customers who have SEEN our efforts and supported us every step of the way. We’re so excited for what the new year will bring, and we’re grateful you’re on this journey with us!
