Finally! Clean “Purple” Haircare

Clean Beauty has covered a lot of ground in the 5+ years I’ve been testing products, but one thing I’ve really missed is “purple shampoo”.  In my former life, I used a purple-hued color-toning shampoo and conditioner from John Frieda that worked really well; if my color was looking brassy/dull/faded, I could use it for a […]

Back to Basics with True Botanicals

Every January, there is talk of detoxing and new beginnings, and while I am so NOT detoxing at 36.5 weeks pregnant, I can always get on board with recommending clean replacements for toxic bath, body and haircare products.  True Botanicals makes some of my favorite not-so-basic basics.  They offer totally clean, totally effective formulas that […]

Favorites from Integrity Botanicals

Sometimes, I look at my product closet, and I find a perfect, cohesive story (i.e. 5 awesome bronzers you need to try).  Other times when I look, all I can see are some amazing products that are completely unrelated – that I really want to talk about.  Today is one of those days.  Integrity Botanicals […]
