Toxin Free & Cruelty Free Hair Products

This photo is of me holding my baby Nola. It’s pretty much our daily morning routine. LOL

If you have curly hair, you’ll love SheaMoisture’s products! I live in Florida and have wavy-curly hair. On days I feel like scrunching my hair, I’ll use their smoothing cream and gel. These products won’t leave your hair feeling crunchy, like others do. In fact, they do the exact opposite. They leave your hair feeling smooth and soft.

The Environmental Working Group is a great spot to check out the safety level of the products you’re using. Your skin is your largest organ and does absorb many of the products you put on it. Download the EWG app, and scan your favorite products to see what the toxin level rating is. I look for products that rate a 3 or lower. The lower the rating, the safer the product is. All of SheaMoisture’s products score between 1-7 on EWG. The products I’ve listed below are all below 3’s.

Cruelty Free
The cruelty free symbol means that the company did not do animal testing on their products. If a company feels the need to do animal testing, that should be a red flag that their product contains something toxic. SheaMoisture’s products are all cruelty free.

Where can you find them?

Target and Walgreens both sell select products in their stores. Walgreens usually has buy one get one ½ off. You can also buy them online.
