Dames! Today is World Wildlife Day! I have spent so much time as a child and a little as an adult exploring in wildlife parks. My business partner, Debbie, and I are extremely passionate about the ecology of our world and our precious mother nature.  Understanding that hair and beauty products have a big part in that cycle is important to our health and the planet’s. Parabens and sulfates have been linked to cancer and cancer-causing agents. The way products are manufactured and even the packaging contributes to the health factors as well. The best thing you can do for yourself, your hair, and our world is to purchase sulfate-free, paraben-free and to take it a step further by looking for brands that have sustainable manufacturing and packaging. I pulled together a few of my favorite brands for you that are under this scope with different price points to give you an idea of what’s out there.


Living Proof – Paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free. Jennifer Aniston approves! Perfect for color-treated hair as well.



Amika – Sulfate-free, cruelty-free. Trendy, natural, and popular among celebs.



De Lorenzo Elements – No petrochemicals, cruelty-free, vegan. Cool little Australian brand that made it all the way to the States!

TRESemmé Naturals – Silicone-free, low sulfate. Slightly pricier than the regular TRESemmé, but definitely worth it and still super affordable.



Garnier Fructis Pure Clean – Silicone-free, paraben-free. Cheapest on the list. Easy, simple — can share with your boyfriend, husband, or even kids!
