5 Conditioners That Tame Frizz And Are Eco-Friendly
Glossy, healthy-looking hair, thanks to products that have a positive impact on the planet? Yes, please! Here are the ones you need on your radar
Hair care has always felt like a bit of a compromise. It either delivered amazing results (and looked pretty on your bathroom shelf), or was eco friendly. Rarely did products offer both gorgeous results and planet-friendly ingredients. And now? You can have it all: shiny hair, nixed frizz and a happy planet. At Love Beauty and Planet, we believe it’s the small everyday acts of love that make our world more beautiful. Which means, you can have the hair of dreams without buying single-use plastic or ingredients with a far-from-eco supply chain. If you’re searching for a conditioner to smooth your strands and soothe your conscience, we’ve sourced the best shine-boosting ingredients nature has to offer, and the even better news is they come with a cruelty-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, dye-free and phthalate-free promise. Oh, and did we mention our formulas are 100% biodegradable?
YOU WANT TO: Tame frizz
Infused with hero ingredient argan oil, which is able to penetrate the hair shaft with all its essential-fatty-acid goodness, as well as lock in moisture for a smoother outer cuticle. And what does that mean? Less frizz. Our hand-crushed Moroccan argan oil is buddied up with calming French lavender – a smell you’ll be more than happy to leave on your pillow after a good night’s sleep.
YOU WANT TO: Restore shine
This gloss-giver harnesses the power of Indian lilac, often referred to as ‘neem oil’ in the beauty world. Like our other favorite moisture-sealing oils, it’s high in fatty acids and vitamin E, and also boasts anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits that can help soothe a dry, itchy scalp. And if that wasn’t enough to convince you this frizz tamer is The One, its warm and spicy clove-leaf scent (ethically sourced from Madagascar, FYI) most certainly will.
YOU WANT TO: Nourish curls
If your hair’s on the fine side, coconut water has similar hydrating benefits to coconut oil, but with a lighter consistency that will energize and enhance your natural texture, not weigh it down. Our coconuts come from certified sustainable sources in the Philippines, and the delicately sweet white jasmine flowers they’re teamed with are hand-picked in Egypt.
YOU WANT TO: Get a hit of hydration
If you have curly or coily hair, chances are you’ve already tried (or at least heard of) the co-washing concept. It essentially means cutting out your shampoo and reaching for a hydrating conditioner instead – one that will also take care of some gentle cleansing while it’s at it. Although none of our shampoos contain harsh, hair-stripping sulfates, this shea-butter-infused option is worth a go for restoring some much-needed moisture in parched hair types.
YOU WANT TO: Repair color damage
Chemical coloring, heat styling, over-enthusiastic brushing: they’re the hair rituals we can’t live without, but damage our hair over time. Murumuru butter is brilliant at softening, restoring moisture and smoothing a disrupted cuticle layer that’s not reflecting the light as well (which is what helps hair look glossy and its color more vibrant). Keeping your hair in top-notch condition will also make your color last longer, which means less money spent on redying it, and more money to spend on game-changing products that have respect for our beautiful planet.
