It can be easy to forget changing out your Shampoo and Conditioner when converting to a healthy, green lifestyle. I mean… who doesn’t love a good lathering in the morning to start your day off?! NEWS FLASH – That foaming of your shampoo is actually an ingredient found in most conventional hair products called Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) or Ammonium Laurel Sulfate (ALS). Both of these ingredients are known to dry out the scalp, irritate oil glands, corrode hair follicles, and are best avoided! Also – for those who color their hair and find that they have to go every 6 weeks or sooner because their hair is fading, look at the ingredients of your Shampoo! These irritants aka sulfates are so good at “cleaning”, it takes the color with it, leaving your hair color to fade faster.
Ingredients to avoid in your hair products….
- SLS and derivatives of lauryl alcohol
- Myreth sulfate
- Propylene glycol (also known as antifreeze)
- Olefin sulfonate (deodorized kerosene)
Josh Rosebrook from California does an incredible job using plant derived ingredients that are 100% organic, certified organic or wild-crafted. Josh creates his products in hopes to heal and regenerate his clients skin. He describes this process as truly an art and science. I’m absolutely in LOVE with his Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner – great for All Hair Textures with Normal to Dry hair and scalp conditions. Like most, It took me a little bit to get used to because I was using too much at first to try to get that lather going, but quickly realized that a little goes a long way and applying only on my roots was the key to becoming clean. Same goes for the Conditioner….just a little along the length of my hair and root to restore luster.
Products include Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Spray, Styling Cream, LIFT Hair Texture and Volume. Josh also makes incredible skin care products. We currently carry the Hydrating Accelerator and an order will be arriving any day which includes Active Enzyme Exfoliator.
