Non-Toxic HAIR Care Products
Updated: Nov 13
It's important to be selective with what you put in your hair to keep it healthy. The brands & products below have been in my current rotation for the past couple months and years.
There are a variety of unisex products that can be used for various hair textures. These products will nourish and condition your hair while smoothing flyaways to reduce frizz.
I've been drawn to oils for so many reasons, but to support healthy hair was on top of my list. With that said, I'm excited to share more about the brand, dae, whose Prickly Pear Hair Oil I use religiously!
Since using these clean, non-toxic brands and products, my hair has never been smoother or healthier. I also majorly contribute my plant based focused lifestyle and good gut health to good hair.
But, if you are not plant based, the following foods are great for healthy hair and hair growth: eggs, berries, spinach, fatty fish ( salmon, herring, mackerel ) spinach, avocados, almonds, sunflower seeds, sweet yellow peppers, oysters, shrimp, black beans & soybeans.
I usually wash my hair every 2-3 days for proper regulation of natural hair oils. Washing your hair less often will also help regain your hair's natural body & luster. I've included 2 of my favorite shampoo and conditioners below.
I love Ursa Major & I've recently started using Act+Acre for the past couple months & I've really been loving that brand as well. Act+Acre also makes an amazing Cold Pressed Scalp Detox which I talk about more below and HIGHLY recommend!
And without further adieu, here are the brands & products below that have been in my rotation:
Infused with the sweet aroma of a blossoming prickly pear cactus, this hair oil is a multi purpose miracle worker! I love to use it as a super-smooth finish on my dry hair, breakage remedy on my damp hair, or as an overnight hydration treatment. Then go one step further & employ its desert magic to transform dry patches into moisturized skin.
dae's Prickly Pear Hair Oil only contains natural colors & should be stored out of direct sunlight to avoid fading. Another reason why I love & support dae is because:
For every dae product purchased, they donate 15.8 gallons of water to charity: water a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean water to developing countries.
While access to this basic need may seem like a given, 785 million people live without it. charity:water works with local experts & community members to find the most sustainable solution to delivering safe drinking water, in turn helping to improve each population’s overall health & economy.

This protective hair oil & hydrating moisturizer that doubles as a perfume does it all!
A fusion of rose hip oil, shea oil & absinthium oil restores moisture, adds a dewy glow, calms frizz & leaves you smelling like OUAI's velvety-rich rose fragrance Melrose Place Eau de Parfum.
To give you a bit of an idea of the scent, the Melrose Place Eau de Parfum is scented with rose, bergamot,
lychee, cedarwood (helps with hair strength) & white musk. To purchase, click here.
I'm not the only one in love with Ursa Major's "Go Easy" Shampoo & Conditioner. The ZOE Report called it "a total groundbreaker" & I couldn't agree more!
This sulfate-free shampoo & conditioner thoroughly cleans and conditions your hair without stripping it of its natural oils & helps promote a healthy scalp.
The shampoo is made with balsam & macadamia and the conditioner is made with jojoba & sandalwood. It's unisex & is formulated for all hair types. To purchase, click here.
Act+Acre's Cold Pressed Scalp Detox has entirely improved my scalp health, which in turn has strengthened my hair follicles.
