What Cruelty Free Hair Products Do I Actually Use?

Hi all! How are you? I hope you are having a great weekend. I just wanted to write a quick review on the  cruelty free hair products I use. To be honest, I don’t really do anything special to my hair. I do suffer from dandruff, and I tend to avoid putting a lot of products in my hair. Slowly but surely I am switching to organic hair care products. I purchased all of these cruelty free products at Target, and they cost less that $10.

Renpure Solutions Lavender Cleansing Conditioner

The basics of this cleansing conditioner is that is part of this whole new hair era, where you replace your shampoo for conditioner. I love the smell of this conditioner, plus it really made my hair soft. The only downside is that my scalp was sort of oily after washing my hair. I tend to only use 5 pumps when I wash my hair, and I leave it on for about 5 minutes.

Acure Clarifying Conditioner Lemongrass

This is the second conditioner that I have tried from Acure. I really love them both. I think the lemongrass smell is very clean, but it isn’t my favorite. It definitely makes my hair feel soft, and that is why I like it so much. I think for the price, product, and the fact that I got it at Target is a huge plus. Call me crazy, but I am the type of person to run to the grocery store when I’ve just finished a deodorant or shampoo. I don’t usually buy these products in bulk, but I should probably. This product is cruelty free, and vegan.

Andalou Naturals Argan & Sweet Orange Moisture Rich Shampoo

Okay first off this smell reminds me of an orange creamsicle, and that is probably why I like it most. I know, I know, I always have to say something about the smell of the product, but I mean when I’m reviewing the product I can always remember the smell. Anyway, I do have some dandruff after wearing this product, but it doesn’t irritate my scalp, and I don’t feel itchy. This is an organic, cruelty free, and vegan product.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

This is a vegan and cruelty free dry shampoo. Also this dry shampoo is super popular, and that’s because it gets the job done. I tend to not use this product often, because I still feel the need to wash my hair after I workout. I usually use this dry shampoo when I don’t feel like washing my hair.

Gift Guide 2016

As part of the Christmas Challenge I wanted to show you a gift guide. I always give my friends and family members these type of gifts. Personally I love giving gifts that others will use in their life, rather than material items. Please keep reading if you want to learn what items make the best gifts.

  1. Picture Frame

    • Today we can easily send a picture or post it on Instagram, but personally I love printing out my favorite picture of the person that I want to give a gift to.
    • This idea is super thoughtful. In fact, one year my friend gifted me this picture frame, and I gave her the exact same thing. Aw! 🙂 True friendship!
    • It’s super easy. Go to CVS photography or WalMart and you can print and edit a picture of your friend or family member. You can also create a collage on the kiosks, which is what I did.
    • Then, buy a picture frame at The Dollar Store, GoodWill, or Target/Walmart.
    • Next, wrap it up and give it to your loved one.
    • I think this is a great idea, because a picture frame is a great decoration item for the home.
  2. Book

      • I am a huge book warm. I think you should gift your loved one either your favorite book, or a book that you think would make a difference in their life.
      • Books are a great idea, because well knowledge is power right!
      • I think a book is a personal, because then they can share what they thought of the book. I think books can also be life changing, because they have the power to make us think about things in a new way
      • Currently I’m reading You are a Badass How to stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. It is a self help book, and I would recommend it for the person in your life who you know is great, but they might need a little push.

  3. Makeup

    • Of course I was going to suggest a makeup product, I mean this is a makeup blog!
    • If you know your loved one is dying to get a new lipstick or eyeshadow palette, then this is the perfect time to gift it for them. Personally I love makeup, and while fuzzy socks are great too, makeup gifts are a sweet spot for me.
    • If you don’t know what makeup product they want, then buy them a Visa Prepaid card that way they can buy whatever makeup product they like.
    • Check out my November Makeup Favorites for any recommendation

I hope this gift guide helps you out. If you are reading this thank you for taking the time out of your day to read it, and I truly hope it inspires you to give thoughtful gifts. I hope you have a great Christmas, and please cherish the moments with your loved ones.

 

Besos!
