Green Beauty: Shampoos & Conditioners

Lather, rinse, repeat. Just when you think you’ve found your all-time-fave hair product, you come across a fabulous new bottle and you fall hair over feet in love again. Maybe it’s how it makes you feel, or smell, or maybe it’s just so darn good for your tresses. Here’s the low down on our top favorites and why we simply ‘heart’ them.

Plus with every purchase of any Orgnx item, the company donates a portion of the proceeds toward planting moringa trees, which is also known as the tree of life!
