Hair and Nails
Product review by EvG team member Amanda Shea:
As someone with long, wavy hair, I often find myself struggling to detangle my hair after a shower. Fortunately, Original Sprout sent me their 4 ounce bottles of Hair & Body Babywash, Deep Conditioner, and Miracle Detangler. The detangler works wonders. I squirted a little into my hair and was able to easily run a brush through my hair. The shampoo, conditioner, and detangler used in combination left my hair silky smooth, with no frizz in sight.
It is estimated that 1 in 5 people in the US have dandruff, which amounts to approximately 50 million citizens. Yikes - that’s a lot of people struggling with itchiness and embarrassing white stuff on their dark clothing! Fortunately they can all breathe easy because this unpleasant scalp condition can be prevented and treated naturally through some simple lifestyle choices and home remedies.
Most women (and some men) spend a lot of time styling their hair - spending lots of money and time on hair cuts and products. Unfortunately, these beauty routines aren't very eco-friendly or healthy, as the products as often full of harmful chemicals. This probably isn't new information to you, so perhaps you use organic products. However, you may not know this: most hair dryers give off as much radiation as a microwave - YIKES!
You may have read my post last week about the importance of avoiding plastic bottles. After seeing the documentary Tapped I went home and started recycling all my plastic containers. Then I walked into my bathroom and realized almost all of my body products were in plastic, and I felt defeated. Luckily, I found an answer to the problem at Natural Products Expo West.
- Some green products like Eco Awesome by Love Peace And Planet (not vegan though)
- Mrs. Meyer's products in the bathroom
- CFL's in lighting fixtures

Last night my friends and I stopped by Green Drinks at Shades Natural Color in Beverly Hills. I was excited to go there because I've been meaning to check out the eco-vegan salon for a long time. It's a really neat place and I look forward to going in and trying out their services at some point.
Today I treated myself to a mani/pedi at Recess Nail Spa in West Hollywood. It was my first time there, so I got both for $50 (normally it's $60).
