Hair Ages, Too…


As if you weren’t worried enough that your skin is aging, your eyes are aging, your a$$ is aging….  I’ve got news: your hair is aging, too.  Conventional shampoo and conditioner aren’t helping matters – they are drying out your hair and poisoning your ultra-porous scalp with Sodium Laureth Sulfate, parabens, phthalates, and they contain countless carcinogenic byproducts that aren’t even on the label (!)

There are a lot of Green shampoos and conditioners on the market, but honestly, only a few have passed my test.  I’m very particular: I want a good, safe lather, I want to smell like a rose garden, and I want a guaranteed good hair day.  I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

True Nature Botanicals, one of my favorite companies (they saved my skin), has developed a shampoo and conditioner for all hair types.  I’m so excited to share them with you, because they are really, really good!

The shampoo‘s luscious lather comes from Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine.  It may sound like a scary chemical, but it’s just a mild, coconut-derived surfactant.  Other key ingredients include Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, which soothes and balances the scalp, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, which helps to lock in moisture, and TNB’s star ingredient, Green Tea Oil.  Part exfoliant, part lubricant, green tea oil reduces flaking, improves appearance and protects hair from environmental damage.

Instead of silicones, mineral oils and synthetic fragrance, The conditioner uses Shea Butter, Green Tea Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder.  My hair is left shiny, silky and moisturized, but not at all weighed down.  And, it smells amazing.

I like these two products even better together than on their own, so I would recommend purchasing the True Nature Botanicals Haircare Duet.

Here’s to good hair days.
