Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

I was wondering if you knew of any organic and/or vegan hair products out there?
About the organic/vegan products...well, I'm always looking. There are some products I've found that say they are organic, and I've listed them, with all the other good conditionerson the site. Off the top of my head, I think Nature's Gate is supposed to be organic/ natural, as well as Jason's, Giovanni, Shikai, Blended Beauty, and Organix are too. There are two problems:
The first is that many products say they are organic, or they say they are all natural, but in fact include the same ingredients that you find in drugstore brands. They just throw in some exotic sounding herbs and oils, which are the organic parts they are talking about when they say they are organic. And there is at least one line of "kitchen" hair products (they advertise themselves as originating in someone's kitchen, which makes you think they must be all natural. But again, if you really read the label, it has all the same ingredients as drugstore lines, but a few exotic oils are thrown in. So it's difficult to tell just how "organic" or natural a product is from the label.

The second thing is that the really all natural products don't work well with very curly hair. Often they are little more than oils, which I found doesn't comb through my hair very well, and leave it really greasy. That or they are too watery, or leave behind a gummy paste when I go to leave it in, or I can't budge my Denman an inch when I try to comb though my hair. So I'm not able to recommend them for that.

I'll continue to keep my eyes out for more organic/ sustainably produced products. I really do want to add more natural/ vegan/ environmentally friendly products to the site. But I hate products deceiving people with their misleading labeling, too.

If I've found something I feel works, I put it on the site. So everything I like, of any category, is already on the site. I'm constantly looking, though, and when I find more organic/ vegan/ environmentally friendly products, they will go on the site, too.
