Ashlee Piper, the lady behind the eco-conscious blog The Little Foxes, is a staunch supporter of cruelty-free living. But even if you're not ready to adopt a vegan lifestyle, Ashlee's on hand for everything from spotting animal products in your shampoo to the best natural mascaras on the market.
The elements can take a toll on your hair. In the winter, it's the cold weather, indoor heating, and a never-ending rotation of hats, earmuffs, and hoods. In the summer, the culprits are sun, salt, and sea (and pool!). No matter what season, your strands likely need a little TLC. Translation: It's the perfect time to add a few gentle, natural products to your routine.
Luckily, you've come to the right place. Free your mane from harsh products and check out the shampoos, conditioners, oils, and other good-for-you products ahead. These are gorgeously green (natural, vegan, cruelty-free), more natural than their competitors, and free of drying ingredients like alcohols and strong cleaners.
