Recently I’ve become really obsessed with hair health. I stopped dying my hair a while ago because A) I wanted to avoid all the toxins that inevitably come with dying your hair and B) You don’t get the super super shiny look when you dye your hair. Now I’m layering on to that with scalp treatments, clean styling products, and good-for-you heat tools. I’ve already noticed such a difference in how my hair looks and feels. What do you do for your hair health?
This scalp scrub has a cult-like status. I’ve heard people talking about it in line to get coffee! I’ve never used it but it’s on my list. What sounds so great about it is that it’s actually a shampoo, so you’re able to get it down on your scalp. It has exfoliating Himalayan pink salt, cold-pressed moringa oil, and pure unfiltered rosehip oil that purifies and detoxifies all at once. What I have used is the Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish, which I heard does basically the same thing. I found it a little messy, but it got the job done and my scalp felt so happy and refreshed afterward. I love the idea of scrubbing off all of the build-up and dead skin on my scalp (that sounds a little weird, but you know what I mean).

I first saw this on Violet Grey’s email letter – I love their beauty edit so much – and had to get it immediately. I love it because my hair has so much lift, and my scalp feels squeaky clean. The only thing is that you need to have some time to leave it on so it can do it’s magic (ideally 15-20 minutes), and usually I only have 30 seconds to shower before my child starts screaming for me;) I also really like this brand’s shampoo and conditioner if you’re in the mood to splurge.

I’m a big fan of Playa’s shampoo because it gives me this great beachy texture. Regardless if I use the shampoo, I use their hair oil pretty much every time I wash my hair. It’s hydrating without being greasy and is so light. It has apricot and sunflower oil inside, it protects from UV damage, and they even recommend to apply before swimming for further protection – a tip I’m definitely going to be using this summer.

The scientists who discovered the element graphene, which is used in this Bio Ionic hot tools collection, which is used in this collection, won a Noble-Prize for the discovery because it is the lightest and strongest material known to man. It’s also happens to be the best heat conductor, hence its application in these tools. This means it allows for superior styling at a lower temperature, which is healthier for hair. I’ve been using both of these tools exclusively for the past to months and I already see a difference in my hair health- I’m officially sold.
