Earth Science.

10 Dec


Earth Science came on my radar a couple of months ago when I gifted a bottle of their Olive Oil and Avocado Hair Masque by the lovely woman who straightens and cuts my hair.

She is older and old school so I knew it was going to be a good product. But I was not prepared for how well my hair took to it. No residue, no harsh smell, nothing weighing my hair down. All around, all good.

Like my skin and my taste buds, my hair is picky. It happens to adore this hair masque and since it’s all natural, paraben free and not tested on animals, I have a feeling it is something I will be keeping around.

For over 30 years this still family owned business has been churning out high quality, cruelty free beauty care. I can’t stay I have much experience with this brand outside of this specific product I am currently using but natural and cruelty free are good enough reasons for me to share their 4-1-1 with you all.


Stay Chizzle,

Get A FreshStart.

19 Jan

Over the past 2 years I have developed a special type of love for dry shampoo. Some days I do not need to wash my hair but would like to freshen it up, those days I reach for Tres Semme Fresh Start. Omg, that sounded like a really cheese ball type of commercial. Where the woman’s hair goes from flat and limp to all lustrous and full lol. But honestly it is true, Fresh Start is the bomb like that. Your hair can be totally greasy and dirty and with a few pumps or sprays you seriously have a new head of hair ๐Ÿ™‚

This wonderful product comes in 2 forms. Spray or mousse. Both work equally as well but I think the spray one gives your hair more body, this is probably why it is recommended for people with ‘Straight or Fine Hair; where as the mousse one is for curly hair. Either way it’s all good. Tres Semme does not test on animals and in this particular product I did not see any animal ingredients used. Some of their products do contain gelatin which would not be considered vegan, this one does not. Fresh Start is super easy to use, you get many uses from one bottle and it is easy to take with you to the gym if you don’t have enough time or desire to take a shower after your work out. When it comes to purchasing this product you can find it almost everywhere, CVS, Target and Harmon I know all have it and if you can’t find it you can buy it all over the ‘net.

Here’s To A Fresh Start That Is Cruelty Free And Priced Right…

Giovanni, Eco Chic Hair Care.

13 Feb

Giovanni Products Are Never Tested On Animals And Contain No Animal Ingredients.

I had been eying Giovanni everywhere I saw it, from Harmon and Target to Vitamin Shoppe and T.J. Maxx. My apprehension in buying it lied in the fact that I had tried some ‘All Natural Organic Shampoo’ last year and it did nothing good for my hair. It actually left my hair feeling like straw. Once you feel the effects of bad shampoo, it is not something you rush right back into buying. So I stuck with my regular routine until my last trip to Harmon. The timing was right since I was running low onย  shampoo and conditioner, I knew Harmon had Giovanni brand so I went for it. The bottles are on the smaller and pricier side, which is not good for someone with as much hair as I have. I do not wash my hair everyday but when I do, I have to wash it at least twice. I tend to go through conditioner like whoa since I condition even on days that I do not wash my hair. And since I fail to cut my hair as often as I should, I have more dry ends then legally allowed. Maybe in my head I think extra conditioner will make them better? I don’t know. All I do know is my hair is a HOT MESS ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

At first smell I notice that the shampoo smells really nice, like orange or something comparable. Light and citrusy. This makes sense considering the fact that there is orange oil in the shampoo. The texture of the shampoo is pretty thick and not watery at all. I used my standard amount and shampooed twice. The lather was great and my hair smelled great and felt really clean, not dry. Next step was the conditioner. It was not as thick as I (and my fried ends) were hoping but it was not runny either. The conditioner also smelled nice and light and citrus like. I used my normal amount of conditioner, twice as much as the average person does and I seemed to be having a hard time getting the knots from my hair. This worried me since I was thinking that combing this was going to be a project. So I rinsed it out with cold water and crossed my fingers. To my surprise my hair was very easy to comb through and very manageable. While my hair was still wet I wrapped it into a low bun so it could air dry without causing me to freeze to death.

After a few hours I took my bun out totally forgetting that I had used a different shampoo. The only reason I remembered was because when I looked in the mirror,ย  I noticed right away how friggin shiny my hair was. That caught me off guard because lately I had been thinking that my hair was looking rather dull. Not after this shampoo. I do not know what this stuff did to my mop, but I am SO happy. My hair is so soft, so smooth, so manageable and it still smells great. ‘Smooth As Silk’ is exactly how I would describe it, this also happens to be the name of the shampoo and conditioner that I used by Giovanni. This is officially my favorite shampoo EVER ๐Ÿ™‚

Never tested on animals and never made with any animal ingredients, Giovanni strives to bring natural, organic hair care to the masses. Their products are free of sulfates and they use organic ingredients whenever possible. The one I tried was packed with natural oils like aloe, orange and lemongrass. Since they practice what they preach,ย  Giovanni is also a member of The Leaping Bunny program.
