Glam and Green Natural Haircare

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Kahlil Gibran"

Hair, it defines a person. It indicates age, style, gender and even era. It can be the difference between a good day or a bad 'hair' day. Martin Luther states that "the hair is the richest ornament of a woman". 

We are taught from a young age that you hair is an asset. It will define all the different stages in your life. Its the difference between the " Rachel Bob" and the "Amy Winehouse Beehive".

So why not treat your hair the best way possible? Here are some products that produce Glam and Green natural haircare.

The LongLocks Natural & Organic Hair Care Recipes Cookbook

"We at the LongLocks HairSticks Boutique believe natural products are best for your hair, best for your soul, and best for the environment. "

1 small jar of mayonnaise
1/2 avocado
Peel avocado and remove pit. Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl with your hands until it's a consistent green color. Smooth into hair being careful to work it to the ends. Use shower cap or plastic wrap to seal body heat in. Leave on hair for 20 minutes. For deeper conditioning wrap a hot, damp towel around your head over the plastic, or use a hair dryer set to a low to medium heat setting.

6 organic chamomile tea bags
1/2 cup plain yogurt
oil of lavender
Bring one cup of water to boil and steep tea bags for 15 minutes. Discard teabags. Combine yogurt and 7 drops of lavender oil with chamomile tea, mix thoroughly. Apply the mixture to dry hair, working through to ends. Cover head in plastic wrap and condition for thirty minutes. Shampoo hair.


1/2 cup beet juice
1/2 cup carrot juice
Mix ingredients together, pour over clean, damp hair. Wrap head in plastic and apply hot towel, medium dryer heat, or sit in the sun for one hour. Shampoo.
1/2 orange
1/2 lemon
Chop fruit into small pieces and place in a pot with 2 cups water. Boil until reduced by half. Cool, strain, and place in a spray bottle. Store in the refrigerator or add one once rubbing alcohol to store at room temperature for up to two weeks. Add more water to reduce stickiness, if desired.

Naked, the range that is exclusive to Clicks also have great natural hair products. From shampoo to conditioner, from anti-frizz serum to heat protective spray, its great for you hair as Naked believe in only using natural ingredients. 
And, as I've mentioned in a previous blog post "What i also enjoy about the Naked range is that all their bottles are made up of 50% recycled plastic! Imagine then recycling them again what a difference it could make! "

PUREOLOGY-serious colour care

Pureology is a sustainable colour care brand that was created in 2001. It revolutionized colour care by being the first 100% Vegan formulas and Zero-Sulfate shampoos for colour-treated hair. Pureology uses organic botanicals thus promoting natural hair care. Pureology have also partnered with Green Cross International and has helped with the Smart Water for Green Schools Project. 


As I've mentioned in a blog post completely dedicated to how Glam and Green The Body Shop is, they also carry  a natural hair care line. The Body Shop reformulated their hair line to contain no parabens or colourants (Rainforest Hair Care). 

The Body Shop promotes their hair care by stating that "even mermaids would love it". Now isnt that just what every Glam and Green Girl wants?

Here's to Glam and Green Hair !
