Confession time. Awhile back I tried EverPure and really, really, really liked it. Typically, I’m loathe to recommend anything L’Oreal due to their well-known history of testing on animals. However, L’Oreal claims not to test EverPure on animals or include any animal ingredients in the formula. If you are hardcore about the sulfate thing, EverPure claims to be sulfate-free. However, it contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate and Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate which seems a little like skirting sulfate on semantics, but whatever; this stuff gives great suds. After trying several expensive and budget varieties, with and without sulfate sudsing agents, EverPure shampoo tops them all. Don’t mess with the conditioner though, it sux. After finding shampoo nirvana, a high-performing natural conditioner became priority number one. Conditioner often justifies the expense, but you don’t have to drop major coin on a daily detangler. Juice Organics Brightening Conditioner is absolutely delightful. The natural conditioner actually has a recognizable ingredient list:
Grape Juice (Certified Organic), Orange (Organic) (Juice), Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice (Certified Organic), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil (Organic), Evening Primrose (Oenothera Biennis) (essential fatty acids), Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) (seed), Borage (Borago Officinalis) (Organic) (seed), Sugar Cane (Saccharum Officinarum) Extract (organic), Rice Syrup (Organic), Glycerin, Cucumber (Cucumis Sativus) Extract, Grapefruit Peel (organic), Lime (Citrus Aurantifolia) Peel (Organic),..
Most importantly, it really works. A reasonable dollop leaves hair weightless, soft, and detangled.
EverPure Shampoo + Juice Organics Conditioner = happy hair.
