Green Your Hair Care: Styling Products

Girl.combing.hair Last winter we recommended a few green shampoos. This week we're offering more tips on eco-friendly hair care.

Tip #4: Style Green.

Look for natural hair-care products that don't contain any petroleum-based ingredients. Healing Scents' gels scored high on the Environmental Working Group's Cosmetic Safety Database, as did those from Kiss My Face.

If you eschew styling products, you get green bonus points. But you still might want a brush. Ambassador makes plastic-free ones from sustainable, non-exotic woods and bristles shaved from farm-raised boars. They come in recycled packaging printed with soy ink.
