Switching to nontoxic skin care, body care, even makeup is easy enough.Â With plenty of truly exceptional all natural product lines on the market today, you can swap out your moisturizer, body wash and mascara with no trouble at all.Â But, when it comes to hair care, it can get a little more difficult.Â In the past, few natural hair care lines lived up to the performance of their conventional, toxin-laden counterparts.Â These au naturel shampoos and conditioners left hair waxy, stringy and feeling a little bit like straw.Â Something their chemical cousins combat with harsh synthetic detertgents (like, sodium laurel sulfate), propylene glycol and silicones.Â What is a girl (or boy) who wants silky hair without the chems to do?
Rare El'ements Salon Inspired Eco-Luxury Hair Care has totally taken care of this problem.Â Not only does this indulgent hair care system leave hair strong, silky and smooth, but also helps to protect color.Â Amazing!
The line consists of Pure Shampoo, Essential Conditioner and ELâ€™ Treatment, a rejuvenating scalp and hair serum.Â All products are made with pure, healthy ingredients and contain exotic oils from Africa to nourish and moisturize scalp and hair.Â No sulfates, silicones, synthetic fragrance or parabens.
Now, letâ€™s get to the nitty-grittyâ€¦.my personal review.Â I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten excited over a new all natural hair care line that boasts full, soft, shiny locks only to be (yet again) disappointed.Â That is not to say that there arenâ€™t a few brands out there really living up to their claims.Â John Masters Organics hair care, for example, is aÂ very affordable line that works really well.Â But my hair is fickle and moody (a combination of fine, dry and wavy/frizzy) that needs gentle care in order to behave itself.Â
When I first learned about Rare El'ements from my friend Terri at The Nature of Beauty, I got all pumped again but reeled myself back in, expecting yet another disappointment.Â Well, I could tell immediately that this was no ordinary natural shampoo and conditioner.Â My hair was soft, smooth, wavy but not frizzy and really looked great.Â And (the true test) continued to be so after several days of using Rare El'ements.Â No honeymoon phase.
The bottom line is this;Â yes, Rare El'ements is on the higher end â€“ $34 for the Shampoo,Â $44 for the Conditioner and the Serum is $44 as well â€“ but is very concentrated and will last you quite a while.Â And for the results, quite worth every cent.Â Honestly, I plan to never be without the stuff.
