Clean and Green Beauty: Hair Care

When I decided to clean up my haircare I imagined I would have to settle for something that left my hair less shiny and silky than my prior drugstore brand. Wrong! What a treat to discover there are brands that give me shiny clean hair but are still clean enough you could probably eat them…not that I a recommending that. Just sayin. Super clean food grade ingredients. Winning!

Carina Organics shampoo and conditioners are rated a top score of 1 by The Environmental Working Group (low hazard). Love that! I found them initially by scouring EWGs Skin Deep database. The wonderful surprise was that they work better than my prior brand and are affordable to boot. How often does that happen?!

I have tried several of their shampoos and I personally use the citrus and unscented extra gentle shampoo and deep treatment conditioner. These are formulated for dry or chemically treated hair. I like the extra gentle since my hair is still color treated…I know. I am wresting with whether to let my gray grow in. So many women on instagram are letting it shine through and rocking it! Soon I think.

When I first tried the citrus I thought it was too strong of a scent…think rich tangerine…but I have come to love it. Sometimes I mix the citrus and unscented since I have both on hand. I have not tried their other scents but they offer lavender, peppermint, sweet pea and a botanical line.

For my 2 boys I bought the Citrus Daily Moisturizing Shampoo for normal hair and they both love it.

I also love and recommend their unscented leave in conditioner spray as a detangler and styling spray. Very nice.

I buy directly from their website which is much cheaper than amazon and shipping is $7.99 flat rate and free over $99.
For a great deal opt for the 1 liter bottles and order the pump tops. (For larger families they even offer a 4 liter size! That must be huge!)

While you are ordering get their facial moisturizer. Also amazing. See my prior post. 😉
