When I was young I slapped on whatever face cream I grabbed from a shelf at the local pharmacy (price played a large role in my selection). My go-to shampoo and conditioner was made by Suave. Remember that one that had such a distinctive smell? I was young and naive then but now I know how important it is for us to take care of our skin and hair. I care more about the products I use and how they are made. I’m more often drawn to foods, make-up, and skincare/haircare products that heal opposed to harm.
Earlier this year my good friend Mimi Moulton introduced me to a brand that is boldly making it’s entrance into the world of cosmetics, skincare, and haircare. Welcome Beautycounter. They feel we are too often pushed unhealthy ingredients and chemicals by the brands that sell us creams, soaps, make-up, and hair products. They want to change all that. Their mission is simple: to get safe products into the hands of everyone. They use ingredients like coconut oil, rose petals, and orange peel. Things you recognize and can pronounce. They promise no harmful chemicals, ever. I like that. AND their product feels and smells really good too.
I’ve tried a handful of organic brands that make shampoo and conditioner for children. The reason I never made the switch was because they all left the girls’ hair feeling dry and tangled. This stuff smells like candy and is super moisturizing. Leaves their hair silky smooth.
