      Introducing Innersense New Hair Glossing Serum- I Create Shine

      We’re firm believers that hair health is a holistic process: Shiny, healthy hair is both a result of nurturing your body from the inside as well as nourishing your hair with good-for-you ingredients. That’s why we’re incredibly excited for you to get to know a new addition to the Innersense Organic Beauty family — our new hair glossing serum, I Create Shine. We formulated this product because we had yet to find a shine oil that met our standards of using the cleanest, purest, and most effective ingredients possible while maintaining a commitment to sustainability. 

      First and foremost, this meant a silicone-free formula that nourishes and illuminates all hair types and textures. Many conventional products rely on silicone to add a slick coating that mimics the look of moisture and shine. However, over time silicones—even water-soluble types—can build up on your hair and scalp and limit your hair’s shine potential.

      Enter: I Create Shine. It’s all about creating an inside-out glow. The formula is a lightweight blend of cold-pressed plant extracts that absorb into each strand within seconds to deliver radiant results. You’ll instantly feel softer, frizz-free hair upon application and over time, it acts like a shield for your hair by treating and protecting it from dull damage. 

      Here, get to know the key ingredients that make up our newest product and how they’ll benefit your hair for a healthy, glossy glow:

      Sasame Oil

      Harnessing the power of sesame seeds (which nutrients include calcium, magnesium, and iron), sesame oil is a game-changer for replenishing moisture, repairing damage, and providing overall strength to each strand. Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, its anti-inflammatory properties calm an angry scalp that could be the reason for hair loss or thinning, plus it forms a strengthened barrier to prevent breakage and split ends.

      Macadamia Oil

      A featherweight moisturizer, macadamia oil, which is rich in fatty acids and potassium, creates an invisible seal on hair for a frizz-free finish that reflects light for maximum radiance. Macadamia oil has the magical ability to pack antioxidants deep into the hair shaft, which leaves hair shielded from environmental stressors and pollutants in the air. Its super-emollient qualities leave hair shinier and smoother than ever.

      Sunflower Oil

      Sunflower oil has all the similar benefits to other popular essential oils like coconut oil, but it packs even more of a punch. Sunflower oil features high amounts of vitamin E and oleic acid (a.k.a. omega 9) to prevent hair breakage. If you have dry or damaged hair, this oil is a perfect blend of omega fatty acids that delivers and retains moisture, plus it  promotes elasticity and creates a luxurious-looking luster that shows off your hair health. 

      Cranberry Seed Oil

      Rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, this lightweight oil safeguards against harmful UV rays and other environmental damage—maintaining vibrant color and healthy hair. The balance of essential fatty acids in cranberry seed oil is great for all hair types, but particularly beneficial for damaged hair to bring bounce and life back to each strand. If dry skin and scalp is a concern, cranberry seed oil improves moisture levels and provides anti-inflammatory benefits that combat dandruff and itching.

      How to incorporate I Create Shine into your hair ceremony:

      Awaken a couple of drops between your palms and breathe in the grounding scent. I Create Shine adds a gorgeous lotus fragrance to the hair. The flower extract is a friendly reminder to carry the shine within you and use its power to brighten the world around you. Every time you apply this hair treatment, let the lotus flower fragrance remind you of the “murky water” you have come from to emerge as the beautiful special flower that you are. Then, smooth onto damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends for a glossy finishing touch.

      FAQ about Innersense Organic Beauty clean hair care ingredients

      You asked, Innersense Beauty answered! Here are a few commonly asked questions about Innersense Organic Beauty clean hair care ingredients.

      CAN OIL BE USED ON ALL HAIR TYPES? HOW DO I KNOW IT’S FOR ME?

      If an oil feels heavy in your hands, it will be heavy in your hair! That’s a good rule of thumb. Different oils benefit different hair types. As heavier oils in common hair care tend to be adulterated or infused with other ingredients, choose lighter oils like tamanu, monoi, avocado and pumpkin seed which dissipate and absorb easily into the hair.

      YOU SAY HARMONIC HEALING OIL (NAMED HARMONIC TREATMENT OIL IN EUROPE) ABSORBS EASILY INTO THE SCALP AND SKIN. WHAT CLEAN HAIR CARE INGREDIENTS ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN?

      Tamanu Oil! Its absorbability is why we love this incredible oil. It soothes dry scalp and skin without any of that “leftover” feeling and literally vanishes into the skin. This topical healing oil is a wildly harvested nut of the Ati tree in the South Pacific and delivers antioxidant benefits and a luxurious feel on the scalp and skin.

      IS HARMONIC HEALING OIL (NAMED HARMONIC TREATMENT OIL IN EUROPE) WATER SOLUBLE?

      Harmonic Healing/Treatment Oil is not “water soluble” in the sense that it dissolves in water. However, it does not bind to the hair shaft, and thus can be rinsed easily from the hair with water. 

      SOME CURL EXPERTS SAY TO AVOID OILS AND BUTTERS, I’M CONFUSED!

      We understand your confusion! The truth is, not all ingredients are created equal and how an ingredient is processed affects its quality and efficacy. Many of the oils and butters found in the market contain lower quality ingredients that are heavily “adulterated,” with synthetics to enhance performance. These types of inferior ingredients can compromise hair health and dull shine and vibrancy. We utilize raw, distilled oils and cold-pressed butters to maintain the quality, purity and efficacy of our clean hair care products.

      WHAT TYPES OF ALCOHOL DO YOU USE AS CLEAN HAIR INGREDIENTS AND WHY?

      We use rice grain alcohol. This emollient ingredient acts as a fast hair drying agent and as a carrier for our fixatives. Unlike other alcohols, rice grain alcohol is non-astringent, meaning it doesn’t strip the hair of natural oils or moisture.

      WHAT PURPOSE DOES DENATURED ALCOHOL SERVE IN I CREATE FINISH?

      Denatured alcohol (ours is a rice grain sourced alcohol) is used for drying, which is especially important for a hair spray! This non-GMO ingredient is a non-astringent alcohol, meaning it doesn’t strip the hair of natural oils or moisture. We encourage you to visit I Create Finish on the Think Dirty app. Our hair spray is independently clean rated 0, which is the best possible score. 

      WHY DO YOU USE PRESERVATIVES?

      That’s a great question. Any product that contains water requires preservatives for stability, be it a face cream, a body lotion, and yes, even a shampoo or conditioner. While our super concentrated products contain considerably less water than most hair care products, we still must utilize clean preservatives like sodium benzoate and sorbic acid to keep your favorite hairbaths and conditioners fresh in your shower.

      WHAT IS “SODIUM CHLORIDE” AND CAN IT DRY OUT MY HAIR?

      The INCI name “sodium chloride” can be misleading because it sounds like table salt! We use natural salts, such as the Pink Himalayan Salt in I Create Waves Salt Spray, and Hawaiian Red Salt in True Enlightenment Scalp Scrub, which do not cause drying.

      HOW DO SALTS DIFFER FROM OTHER “SALT” INGREDIENTS?

      Pink Himalayan Salt and Hawaiian Red Salt are both natural, unprocessed salts rich in trace minerals and nutrients. It’s those minerals that give these ingredients their beautiful pink and red hues. Table salt, on the other hand, is typically refined and processed to remove any trace minerals, leaving only sodium chloride.

      WHAT PURPOSE DOES GLYCERIN SERVE?

      We utilize plant-based glycerin. It is a wonderful emulsifier and a great clean alternative to PEGs and MEAs and other synthetic emulsifiers. Glycerin helps give our products a nice “hand” or feel. 

      IS YOUR HONEY BEE-FRIENDLY?

      Yes, we love and admire the mighty bee! We source and utilize only bee-friendly honey, which means it’s sourced from a self-sustainable, eco-friendly environment and bees are not harmed, captured or handled in any manner. Honey is a natural fit for our clean hair care. A nourishing humectant, it locks in and retains moisture for healthier hair, tames frizz and flyaways and adds shine, volume and light hold.

      4 Holiday Hair CLEAN BEAUTY Looks to Deck The Halls

      4 Holiday Hair CLEAN BEAUTY Looks to Deck The Halls

      This year, deck the halls with clean beauty! And just in case you need some inspo, here’s four ways to use Innersense Organic Beauty to make your holiday hair pop. Before you get started, remember that healthy hair begins in a sacred place – the shower – so start your holiday hair look with one of our hairbath and conditioner duos.

      GET THE LOOK: PERFECTLY PLAIT YOUR HOLIDAY HAIR

      There’s nothing like a festive holiday braid! Get The Look: First, apply I Create Lift Volumizing Foam, a clean hair care Allure award-winner, throughout damp hair, using your fingers to work the product roots to ends. Then, blow or air dry. Finally, braid as desired, then spray 2 to 3 pumps of I Create Finish to seal the style, tame flyaways and add soft, touchable all day hold.

      GET THE LOOK: HIGH FASHION STYLE WITH A LOW CHIGNON

      We love a romantic, tousled chignon to deck the halls! Get The Look: First, detangle wet hair with a wide tooth comb. Then dispense 2 to 3 pumps of I Create Lift Volumizing Foam into your hands and lightly emulsify. Next, distribute throughout hair, using your fingers to gently separate and shape; add more as needed. Blow dry with a paddle brush, smoothing hair from roots to ends. 


      Next, for added body and texture, apply 1 to 2 pumps of Refresh Dry Shampoo to your fingertips and emulsify. Apply to the roots, nape and hairline and allow to air dry. Next, wrap hair in a chignon or bun, then strategically “pull out” strands and loops of hair for a romantic, tousled, clean beauty look. Finally, seal the style with I Create Finish.

      GET THE LOOK: ACCESSORIZE YOUR BRAID!

      A gorgeous statement braid is an “under the mistletoe” stunner. Get The Look: First, distribute I Create Volume throughout damp, detangled hair, using fingers to work the product from roots to ends.

      Then apply I Create Lift Volumizing Foam as a “glaze.” Scrunch products into hair, then diffuse or air dry (spritz I Create Finish on damp hair to speed dry time, if desired!) When dry, braid upper half of hair in a loose fishtail, secure into a low ponytail, then pull out sections of hair to “plump” the plaits. To complete the look, decorate hair as you would a gorgeous gift box… with a generous bow! Don’t you love this braid by #IOBEducator Loni Jean Lafinier?

      GET THE LOOK: HIGHLIGHT YOUR NATURAL TEXTURE

      Allowing your natural texture to shine allows you to jingle all the way, from day to night, party to party, for days without needing to restyle. Get The Look: First, detangle wet hair with a wide tooth comb. Then place a dime sized amount of Quiet Calm Curl Control into wet hands and emulsify. Distribute throughout hair, using fingers to gently separate and shape curls, adding more product (and water) as needed. 

      Once curls are formed, dispense 2 to 3 pumps of I Create Lift Volumizing Foam into your hands and emulsify. Apply in a “scrunching” motion from the ends of the hair, up to the scalp. Diffuse or air dry. Once curls are dry, emulsify a small amount of Inner Peace Whipped Creme Texturizer in your fingertips, applying sparingly to separate and define curls.

      It’s a common question I hear: “What products should I use to protect my hair?”

      This very question comes from my Beauty Guests who regularly use heat styling tools, including curling and flat irons, and the hair dryer. Hair trends come and go, but heat styling remains a key to achieving the latest in-style look.

      It’s been a long-standing marketing technique for companies to come out with heat protectant products. These conventional products are loaded with silicones and plastics, which are meant to cosmetically add shine to hair, yet consumers don’t realize the true effect these ingredients have on hair.

      Unfortunately, these ingredients don’t protect hair at all. They are designed to coat the hair and secure it, much like saran wrap secures your food. Hair is unable to absorb any moisture. Instead of protected, hair is dehydrated and starved for nutrients, while next it is blasted with heat, which further dehydrates and damages hair. It’s a recipe for unhealthy hair, which is the exact opposite of what the consumer wants.

      The vicious cycle continues as consumers have the false impression that their desired product will protect hair. Heat styling continues compounds the problem. Hair continues to be starved and thirsty.

      To stop this unhealthy cycle, and allow hair to breathe and absorb nutrients and moisture, I like to speak in terms of preparation. It’s the idea that hair is like plant energy, and needs hydration, water and nutrients. Hair can withstand a certain amount of heat application on a regular basis with proper preparation.

      One of the first steps I ask my Beauty Guests to do: take inventory of hair, health and hair care. These questions include:

      • Are you color treating your hair, or using another chemical process?
      • What status is your hair currently in?
      • What’s your general health and nutrition?
      • Are you drinking enough water?
      • What’s your stress level?
      • Are you taking vitamins, including Vitamin B and Biotin?
      • Do you use one or more heat styling tools?

      Healthy hair care starts in the shower with the proper shampoo and conditioner. Consumers often don’t realize many conventional shampoos and conditioners do contain silicones. Be sure to check your labels.

      The next step: hydration, hydration, hydration. This includes lots of water while also selecting the right products for your hair. Here are the recommendations I make to my Beauty Guests based on hair texture:

      Fine Hair, Minimal Chemical Treatments

      Medium Hair, Minimal Chemical Treatments

      Coarse Hair, Heavy Chemical Treatments

      When your hair is fully hydrated and moisturized, hair has the nutrients it needs and is properly prepared for heat styling. Plus, every hair type can enjoy heat styling, too.   Now that you’re a savvy consumer, you have insight on how to keep your hair healthy while showing off any hair trend currently in style.
