Oh hiii everyone!
Did you know I swapped to sulfate & paraben free shampoo and conditioner? It’s been around 6 months since making the swap, and my hair is feeling great! So here’s the backstory:
This past summer Aveeno Haircare reached out to collaborate on their oat based line of shampoo + conditioner which are sulfate, paraben, and dye free! I was very excited about this initiative. I love when big brands make mindful swaps like these that are still affordable while offering a higher caliber product. The Aveeno Haircare collection is infused with wholesome and farm fresh ingredients that promote a healthy scalp while nourishing hair strands from root to tip.
For part of the collaboration, I had the opportunity to create a nutrient dense recipe using the same ingredients found in their Fresh Greens Blend Collection! Oats are the first ingredient in the collection’s shampoo and conditioner and is infused with cucumber, peppermint, and rosemary. It kind of felt like a master chef situation where I was able to experiment with ingredients and formulate my own masterpiece! I ended up creating a kale harvest bowl. See below for recipe details!
My review of Aveeno Haircare’s Fresh Greens Blend Collection:
The products feel super moisturizing and soothing on my hair, and I especially love the scents! I have naturally thin and dry hair so my favourite products from the line have been the Fresh Greens Blend collection which help with thickness and body. I love the hint of peppermint and rosemary- they make my hair feel clean, refreshed while lightweight at the same time. To be honest the highlight for me is knowing that the products are free of parabens, sulfates, and dyes. I feel comfort in knowing that I’m washing my hair with wholesome ingredients. Oats are extremely hydrating, which makes it a great product to use in the winter, but also year-round!
