Although I do like Intelligent Nutrient’s Hairspray for when I need ultra-mega hold for something like an up-do, it is really to crispy for when my hair is down. Plus, I have a cow-lick on one side of my bangs so I use product there to help keep things going the right direction and the Intelligent Nutrient’s Hairspray was just too much. I haven’t tried too many of Yarok’s hair products, but I like their leave-in spray so it made sense for me to try their Feed Your Hold Hairspray.
It has been a bit of a journey, but I think I’ve finally found a good balance of hair care products that work well for my hair and have honestly given me the best hair I’ve had in my adult life. I never thought I’d say this, but my hair feels softer, healthier and looks more smooth and has better shine than it ever did with conventional products or even the expensive salon-grade products. Even though I have dyed my hair repeatedly for years, and have gone from very light blonde to very dark brown and back again several times, my hair now air-dries without any frizz. I definitely couldn’t boast about that with my salon brands.
The transition from salon to natural products wasn’t pretty. I nearly quit to go back to salon products so many times I can’t even count. But now that I’m on the flip side (nearly two months later) I can honestly say I’d never go back. I no longer expect my shampoo to lather like crazy, and understand that my hair can be just as clean without the stripping sulfate ingredients. Like I’ve said, my hair has never been healthier. Why would I go back?
Although I hope to someday be at the point where all I’ll need is a shampoo bar and apple cider vinegar rinse to be happy with my hair, for now I still feel like it needs a conditioner or some variety. I’ve been using the John Master’s Organics Citrus and Neroli Detangler (review) for the last little while, but I was hoping to find something that wouldn’t be quite as expensive. It works wonders, don’t get me wrong, but at $22 CAD for an 8oz bottle, the price is a little steep. Especially when you have to spend more than $60 to get free shipping! But I digress…
While perusing my favourite natural beauty products website, EcoDivaBeauty, I came across a product by Yarok called Feed Your Ends. It’s a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant that is 100% natural and certified vegan. Can’t get much better than that!
