Naturalize your hair with Giovanni Eco Chic, Burt's Bees, Garnier Fructis and Tints of Nature!

Flowers in your hair? Maybe not - but ingredients that are more natural? Why not?! There are so many brands now offering eco-conscious choices that it's no longer a huge hassle to do something good for your hair and the earth!

Here are a few that I like and may be worth having a look at:

Giovanni Eco Chic Cosmetics has a whole range of head-to-toe eco chic products including a hair care range of shampoos, conditioners, repair treatments and styling/finishing aids that are crafted as naturally as possible. Available are:
Golden Wheat Shampoo or Direct Leave-In Conditioner - $10.49; 50/50 Balanced Shampoo or Conditioner - $10.49; Smooth as Silk Shampoo or Conditioner - $10.49; Root 66 Max Volume Shampoo or Conditioner - $10.49; Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo or Conditioner - $10.49; Wellness System Shampoo or Conditioner (with Chinese Herbs) - $11.99 (pictured); Vitapro Fusion Leave-In Hair Treatment - $10.49; Smooth as Silk Xtreme - $11.99; Frizz Be Gone or L.A.

Burt's Bees Super Shiny Shampoo or Conditioner with Mango - 300ml - $9.99 - this new and improved formula is infused with Jojoba protein, Amino Acids as well as nutrient-rich Mango Seed Oil for hair that's manageable, soft, smooth, healthy-looking and naturally beautiful - the system is clinically proven to minimize frizz and give hair luminous shine. It also has 100% natural fragrance and smells amazingly fruity!
Garnier Fructis Pure Clean 2 in 1 - 384ml - $5.29 - all the joy of the original Pure Clean Fortifying Shampoo and Condition, made more time/space/cost efficient by turning it into a one-step product! With a clear, biodegradable format and infused with the antioxidant acerola berry, it leaves hair refreshingly clean, healthy and shiny with weighing it down. And of course it contains no silicones, parabens, dyes or artificial additives.
A long-time favourite of mine, Tints of Nature - $18.99 - has revamped their packaging and added five new shades to the line. As we know hair colour works by raising the pH level which allows the cuticle to open and the colour to penetrate. With ammonia based colours this causes harsh side effect on the hair with loss of protein and moisture with the hair unable to return to its ideal pH level. With ammonia-free colours like Tints of Nature they soften the cuticle which allows it to work at a lower pH - a method that is just as effective but leaves the hair a lot healthier!

Tints of Nature also contains certified organic ingredients and doesn't contain any parabens!

Avaialable at Loblaws, Zehrs, YIG, Superstores, Fortinos and specialty health food stores as well as online at
