Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Clean Hair-Care Products
Our modern world is more toxic than ever before. But the amount of brands making effective, non-toxic products is also on the rise. When looking at what to make a priority when making the switch to non-toxic options, beauty and haircare is at the top of the list. Since these are products most women use on a daily basis, it’s important to be conscious of what we are using. These are our current favorite products that keep our hair strong and healthy.
Because I don’t like to wash my hair every day, this conditioning cowash is a fabulous product for me with coconut oil and tangerine! I use a little bit every other day instead of my shampoo to give my hair a break and for an extra kick of moirsture. A little goes a long way if your hair is finer!
I don’t know about you but I am always losing my hair ties. I buy them in bulk and then a few months later, they vanish and are gone forever, or are they? Over 20,000 pounds of elastic is discarded into landfills daily because it can’t be recycled. That’s why I’ve made the healthy switch to biodegradable hair ties! Now I have the confidence that when I lose my hair ties I’m not harming the world around me.
While I don’t use it myself, I love the Baby Mantra Shampoo and Body Wash for my daughter. After using a different brand for the first few months of her life I noticed her sensitive skin and hair looked aggravated after each bath, but since switching to Baby Mantra I haven’t had to worry about it at all! It cleans her delicate hair perfectly. I love this product and definitely recommend it.

One thing I use in between washes is Billie Dry Shampoo. Since I dye my hair I don’t want to wash my hair too often I find this so helpful for those days in between washes when my hair needs to look a little more “fresh”! This dry shampoo doesn’t leave any residue and actually gives my hair body!
As someone who has gone from one end of the spectrum to the other in terms of hair coloring, good hair care is especially important to me. One of my biggest struggles, though, has always been dry/split ends. While I am down to try anything to help, clean products are a must. One of my favorite additions into my routine is Argan Oil. This magical serum has so many benefits for hair and skin and hydration is at the top of them. Sometimes I will apply it to my ends before blow drying and other times I add a few drops in with my conditioner. Whatever the routine, this oil is high on my list!
If you are like me with pin straight hair, but desperate for curls and texture, The Enchanted Island Salt Spray is for you! This is my go-to product for the perfect beach-y waves. This product is a pink sea salt-based styling spray, that is vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without gluten, silicones, and synthetic fragrance.
I typically don’t have a problem with dandruff but my scalp has been a little more dry than normal and I’ve definitely noticed a build-up of products like hairspray and dry shampoo. This scalp scrub was seriously a game changer for really exfoliating my scalp and removing product build-up. It leaves me feeling even cleaner than after a regular shampoo and conditioner routine.
