Living a minimal waste lifestyle means that it is part of your every day routines, including your hair care!
Attitude Shampoo ] Conditioner
I’m so excited to find such a great option at Nature’s Fare Markets. If you’re not into the idea of using a solid shampoo bar but want to reduce your carbon footprint, these products are for you. Attitude is EWG Verified meaning they are free from EWG’s chemicals of concern. They carry multiple EcoLogo Certified products as well meaning they are committed to reducing their environmental impact in areas such as green packaging, they are made using environmentally-friendly production and manufacturing processes, and they are PETA Certified Cruelty-Free.
Prairie Naturals Moroccan Moon Argan Serum
There’s something about a glass bottle with a glass dropper that makes you feel fancy. Rub a couple drops in your hands before applying to the ends of your hair. This serum is paraben-free, cruelty-free, and alcohol-free. Did I mention it smells phenomenal?
Urban Spa Smooth-As-Silk Wooden Hair Brush
Not only is this brush gorgeous and eco-friendly, there are actually quite a few benefits to using a wooden brush instead of plastic. The wooden bristles help to better distribute the natural oils in your hair from your roots to your ends, allowing you to go longer between washes. I recommend about 100 brush strokes a day or before your shower. This specific brush easily penetrates thicker hair and distributes styling products easily.
Diva Divine Lavender Dry Shampoo
Most dry shampoo powder comes in a plastic container. Luckily, Nature’s Fare Markets carries one that works, and is recyclable. Diva Divine dry shampoo uses lavender essential oil for a clean, floral scent. This product is cruelty-free, vegan, and contains no synthetic substances.
Tips & Tricks
Sprinkle some dry shampoo straight onto your hairbrush and brush it through your hair to distribute it more evenly without worrying if it will show up white. This trick works on blonde and brunette hair. Darker hair may require more brushing to distribute the powder more eveny.
Tip Top Curls
To make your curls last overnight, flip your hair upside down, sprinkle or brush some dry shampoo into your roots, and gently rub some Prairie Naturals Moroccan Moon Argan Serum on the ends of your hair. Lightly tie your hair up into a bun on the very top of your head with a scrunchie or something that won’t make it kink.
