Shampoo Wishes And Conditioner Dreams

When my holy grail fragrance free shampoo and conditioner was phased out in a rebranding, I was super bummed.  It can be a challenge to find gluten free, vegan products, especially in fragrance free forms that cater to dry skin and curly hair.  And I lost more than a shampoo and conditioner – my basic bath products must be multi-functional. I guess I’m pretty demanding.  I need my conditioner to function as a rinse-out, leave-in,... Read More

Just for laughs, I pulled up the ingredient list (which probably hasn’t changed in 30 years)—and Oof… Water (Aqua), Cocotrimonium Chloride, Acetamide MEA, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEI 1750, Oleth 20,... Read More

Product Review: Griffin Remedy Daily Shampoo And Conditioner

When a brand says right on their website, “what goes onto your skin, goes into your body,” I’m going to take a closer look. I did just that with Griffin Remedy and found some go-to products.  Though I typically look for unscented skin and hair products, sometimes I do appreciate a light, energizing scent in the shower.  This clean, vegan, gluten-free brand makes a variety of products, and I’m a regular user of their hair care. Griffin Remedy... Read More
