To start off, our condolences… we know how heartbreaking it is to use up all of your Cosmocaps. However, making sure your Cosmocap empties are recycled properly helps take away the hurt, and also gives a high five to mother nature (who’s totally going to high five you back). We’ve done all the hard work for you Studies show that less than 12% of plastic is recycled, with approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution finding its way into our waterways and ocean everyday. To put it simply, it’s a big BIG issue and totally not what we’re all about. Here at Remilia, we're big fans of Planet Earth. We’re strong believers in making sustainable decisions when it comes to the products we consume, which is why we strive to make our products as environmentally friendly as possible. Not only is the packaging of our Cosmocaps reusable AND recyclable, our Cosmocap Capsules themselves are totally biodegradable. Don’t believe us? Let us show you how to melt down your Cosmocaps. It’s quick and easy, and also… kind of fun to watch! How to Biodegrade the Biodegradable Who doesn’t love a good science experiment? Simply pop your empty Cosmocap cases into boiling water and watch as the capsules melt, you’ll have a heavenly smelling liquid solution in no time. The boiling water not only dissolves the capsule super quickly, but once cooled, you’re left with a “Cosmo-politan” (it’ll catch on) that is perfect for the garden. Veggies, Plants, or that indoor Monstera that you’re trying to save will LOVE the nutrients. Don’t have a green thumb? No stress at all! Your fun little concoction is totally safe to pour down the drain. Oh how we love versatility! What next? Stock up on more Cosmocaps of course.

HOW TO: TYPE 1 HAIR
Think Cher and Kendall Jenner, your hair was made to just wash and go! We envy you, we really do, but that doesn’t mean your hair type doesn’t come with its own list of problems…
Type 1 Hair is made up of naturally super fine strands. Relatively low-maintenance, and naturally thin and wispy, your hair lacks any sort of real curl but looks great loose and free. Oil is your biggest issue, but we’ve got that covered, here are our Top 4, Type 1 Hair Hacks that you’re going to wish you knew sooner!
Wash your Hair Regularly
When it comes to beating that oil, a regular wash schedule is going to be life saver. We recommend washing your hair every two to three days to keep it clean, and give it that je ne sais quoi. Any more than that, and your hair won’t get the natural nutrients it needs to stay healthy and soft. Finding the right balance is critical, but don’t worry, we know you’ve got this!
Regular Hair Cuts
Trimming your dead ends is super important to ensure your Type 1 Hair stays full of life. The longer you go without a snip, the more weighted and pulled down your hair will look and feel, so make sure you get on top of your hair cut routine. (Trust us, you can thank us later!)
Wash your Hair with Cold Water
We’re so sorry, but you’re going to have to go full polar bear with this one. Washing your Type 1 Hair with cold water is a must when it comes to oil control, and keeping your hair super shiny and clean. Cold water not only rids the scalp of dirt, oil and impurities, but keeps your hair cleaner for longer. There’s just too many pro’s!
Don’t Sleep with Wet Hair
If you’re like us, you leave your hair washing right to the last minute before bed. This totally doesn’t need to change, but how you dry your hair before bed does. Using a hair dryer, make sure your hair is 100% bone dry before you go to sleep, to make sure you avoid any unwanted frizz (and some unwanted tangles).
Want long luscious “Rapunzel-esque” locks but your hair won’t budge? Here are 3 things that could be preventing your hair growth. # 1. Scalp Buildup Scalp buildup is super common, and can be caused by a range of different day-to-day hair care products. Excessive use of dry shampoo (guilty as charged), or going too heavy on heat protectant when you style your hair, can be clogging up your hair follicles, making it harder for new hair growth. How do you solve this? Deep cleansing, shampooing, refreshing good-ness. Invest in a good quality Detox Shampoo that will help strip product buildup and rejuvenate your hair. You’ll be sporting longer flowy Topanga style hair in no time! # 2. Color Overload and Heat styling We LOVE a freshly balayaged look just as much as the next millennial, but sometimes the lengthy and damaging process of coloring or heating our hair can bring our hair growth to a stand still. Dye, heat or and even general chemical processes like bleaching, should be used only in moderation, and in between your treatments you should aim to restore as much moisture to your hair as you can to get it feeling (and looking) as healthy as possible. That’s where we can help! Our Green Coco Hair Mask is a bi-weekly hair treatment, designed to restore dry or brittle hair, and is clinically proven to boost shine, manageability and improve long-term hair health. Bring moisture back to your mane, and your hair will be growing in no time! # 3. Cut back on the Ponytails They’re super cute, we get it. Ariana would be pleased with you, and that’s all that matters right? Well… Super tight snatched ponytails can tug at your hair follicles, which may be the reason your hair refuses to grow. Give your scalp some time to breathe, and let your hair down every once in a while to promote healthy hair growth. # Ask your doctor About 50% of women and 80% of men experience some sort of hair loss over the course of their lifetime. Sometimes lack of hair growth can’t be resolved by changing up your shampoo or cutting back on ponytails. Give our above suggestions a go, but if you’re still struggling, it may be time to have a talk with your GP.
