If you're a self-proclaimed mermaid lover like me, you'll do just about anything to rock a healthy head of hair. But did you know that the secret to your most nourished mane may actually be in the same place as your favorite mythical creature? That's right, when it comes to achieving a mermaid-worthy mane, it's all about embracing the antioxidant-rich properties of everyone's favorite under-the-sea green: seaweed.

Seaweed is chock-full of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals — ranging from omega 3s and calcium to zinc, iron and vitamins A, C, B, and E — that work wonders for everything from skin and hair to full body health when consumed. When used in hair care, seaweed works to intensely repair by coating strands with all those fatty acids and nutrients, helping it rebuild itself and grow stronger. But it's not just the inner structure of your hair that seaweed addresses, it also works to improve texture and shine too.

To help you switch from chemical-laden hair care products to more natural, earth-inspired, mermaid-approved shower staples, here are four of the leading seaweed hair care systems.

After his wife discovered the powerful skin benefits of seaweed after getting a facial in Europe, Leon Gorman decided it was time to develop a seaweed-rich product that worked the same magic for your mane. The result? A 3-piece hair care collection, including a shampoo, conditioner and serum, all made with Irish organic seaweed. All of the products are made without harsh chemicals and sulfates, ensuring that these products will work wonders for all hair types, regardless of whether or not it's been colored.
