I think most of us are staying away from sulfates, parabens, and drying alcohols when it comes to our hair products. If you want to take it a step further and avoid products that aren't harmful to you or the earth, you may want to consider a green beauty routine. A "natural", "clean", and "green" routine is basically the same thing; it's all meant to be sustainable, eco-friendly, and made from natural ingredients.
If this sounds like a routine you'd like to switch to, here are 5 green hair products you're going to love!
amika Curl Corps Defining Cream
This is definitely for my girls with fine curls. amika Curl Corps Defining Cream is a great green option for type 3 and type 4a/b hair that helps coat curls to keep them from frizzing, splitting and sagging.
NaturAll Club Fresh Avocado Deep Conditioner
NaturAll Club Fresh Avocado Deep Conditioner is made with fresh avocados and fresh fruit with natural oils to add moisture and nutrients to your curls, leaving it soft, moisturized, detangled, and shiny for days.
Alikay Naturals Moisturizing Black Soap Shampoo
Alikay Naturals Moisturizing Black Soap Shampoo removes buildup without stripping hair of its natural moisture. This clarifying shampoo is made from raw Black Soap to heal damaged hair from deep within the follicles.
CurlMix Flaxseed Gel
CurlMix has a few variations of this flaxseed gel, including fragrance and fragrance-free options. My personal favorite is the pure flaxseed gel with organic jojoba oil. Besides the fact that it is creamier and more moisturizing than other gels, it leaves your hair soft, defined, and moisturized without the crunch or flakes.
Soultanicals Marula-Muru Moisture Guru
Soultanicals Marula-Muru Moisture Guru is definitely for the girls with dry hair. I happen to be one of them; you can use this alone or add it into your routine as a leave-in. The cream nourishes hair strands and provides intense moisture with rich ingredients like murumuru butter, marula oil, and pracaxi oil.
