Live Clean

I’m experimenting with a new shampoo & conditioner. For a while now I’ve been using Herbal Essences Long-Term Relationship shampoo and Hello Hydrationconditioner…but it hasn’t really been working for me. I have long, ridiculously thick hair with a not-so-fun touch of frizziness. I read online that sulphate ingredients in shampoos and conditioners can increase frizz. I checked the labels — sure enough, sulphate ingredients. Also, these products were making my head itchy — not cool. My friend recommended a sulphate-free products she had found at Wal-Mart: LiveClean.

I picked up Green Earth shampoo and conditioner. It helped with the itchy scalp (gross, I know…) and seems to have helped with frizziness. I have had a chance to use the shampoo with my old conditioner twice and the LiveClean shampoo and conditioner together only once. It seems to be helping.

I chose Green Earth (which was the only kind the local Wal-Mart carried) but there are also others: Purple Jewel, for wave-enhancing; Pink Fire, for colour protection;Fresh Water, for moisturizing; Clean Air, for volumizing — and more.

In my area, conditioner and shampoo each cost between $5 and $7.

These are made with 96% plant ingredients and are:

  • Petroleum free
  • SLS free
  • Sulphate free (frizz-causer!!)
  • DEA free
  • Silcone free
  • Paraben free
  • Phthalate free
  • Phosphate free
  • Biodegradable ingredients
  • Recyclable package (who doesn’t love that?!)
I would recommend this shampoo and conditioner to anyone — there are different kinds of shampoo and conditioner to suit different hair types or what you are trying to accomplish. Green Earth is labeled as “invigorating”; pretty much for every hair type. I just wanted the basic, but you can get whatever. Try it out! Sulphate free and good for the environment — what could be better?!? 😉
