Natural Beauty (Part 1)

For the last couple years, more and more companies have developed cosmetics made from natural ingredients. The thought of natural mascara and foundation never appealed to me because I have had several experiences with products that smelled like weird herbs. However, lately I have been transitioning into these cleaner cosmetics as I have female relatives on both sides of my family with breast cancer, so I'm a little more wary of what I put on (and in) my body.
For about 2 years now, I've been going to the Aveda salon to get my hair cut. Not only is it a salon that uses their own, all-natural products, but it's also cheap because students are cutting your hair. The herby smell of the shampoo and conditioners take some getting used to, but they actually work fabulously. I've even had my hair colored here (again, all natural product) and it turned out great!
Many times when I get my hair done, I buy the product they used so I can use it at home. So far, I have the Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner, both of which work well and can get me through 2 days without my hair feeling greasy.
I also use the Aveda Smooth Infusion before blow-drying, in hopes of protecting my hair from damage.
And sometimes, I put the Aveda Brilliant, Universal Styling Creme on after I'm done styling to add some shine and smooth it all out.


  1. They're also cruelty free. Yay!
