Hi again everyone,
Today I would like to finish the run of blogs on the Global Green Beauty Awards with a look at some great winners from the hair care categories.
Firstly, we have Sóley Iceland whose Graedir Shampoo won Gold for BEST 'GREEN' SHOWER PRODUCT. Drawing heavily from Iceland’s largely unpolluted and undeveloped natural beauty, Solely are able to use top-quality ingredients. Their website has a wonderful video that shows the richness of plantlife there and how in summer, the blossoms provide a huge natural pharmacy. These ingredients are integral not only to their products but to their whole ethos! They consider their star ingredients to be the hand-picked herbs which are used in all of their products! Do check them out!
Two brands shared the Gold Award for BEST NATURAL SHAMPOO. The first was BAMBeautiful for their Hair Thickening Shampoo. This company specialises in products which treat hair loss and independent studies have confirmed fantastic results. They make their products in England and are committed to being a cruelty-free and vegan-friendly brand.
The joint winner was Bruns for their fabulous no1 Shampoo. Founders Johanna and Cecilia are two hugely experienced hairdressers from Sweden. They had seen some of the nasty side effects which customers had experienced after using products which were full of harsh chemicals and had a vision to combine their hair expertise with a commitment to improving the customer experience while working in a sustainable fashion and avoiding chemicals. A big part of their success story is the inclusion of Johanna’s 75 year old father in the business. He is fascinated by the composition of the raw materials and is integral to the formulas which make the cut. Founded in 2014, Brun also put out a wonderful magazine (see here) with further information on their green journey as well as some very useful pieces of hairstyling and info on their new journey into skincare!
Finally we’ll take a look at the Gold Winner for BEST ETHICAL HAIR PRODUCT which was Zenz Organic for their Oil Treatment Pure no. 97. Zenz, like Bruns, also come with a rich history in hairdressing, although their founder is from Denmark. They focus on making hair products which are loved by professional hairdressers and their background means they know exactly what the industry veterans are looking for. They share the Scandinavian ethos of sustainability and have a passion for natural ingredients and eco-friendly practices. Wonderfully transparent ,their website gives full details on all the ingredients used in their products and details how they work to achieve 12 of the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals.
So, that's it from me for now. However, the Global Green Beauty Awards will be back next year so I’m already excited to be working on that again. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely early Autumn period and do check out the companies I’ve mentioned today, all of whom were worthy winners and deserved recognition for their great work both in creating hair products and in their commitment to green beauty!
Ciao for now!
ALTERNA - winner in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards
It’s all about shine & smoothness this summer season... Our top product picks for creating the smoothest & glossiest locks The warmer weather can have damaging effects on our hair and can cause it to look dull and dry, as well as frizzy due to the humidity! With that in mind, we’ve put together our top product picks from ALTERNA Europe in order to achieve the healthiest looking locks this summer, which are free from frizz and flyaways and that are smooth with optimum shine! The kind of hair we all lust over! Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and a good quality shampoo and conditioner are a must to help gently moisturise your hair and scalp.
The ALTERNA My Hair. My Canvas. Me Time Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner are the perfect duo for your summer hair care routine, helping to gently moisturise whilst enhancing shine, adding smoothness and improving manageability (which we all need more help with during the warmer months!). Switching your conditioner with hair mask every couple of days is a great way to give your hair further nourishment and conditioning too. Our ALTERNA My Hair. My Canvas. Cool Hydrations Nourishing Masque works to provide replenished strands with deep hydration, reducing breakage, frizz and static and improving the overall look and feel of the hair.
For if your hair is feeling extra parched and is severely damaged due to pollution and environmental over- exposure, add in some of our My Hair. My Canvas. Jelly Fix Repair Booster in to your mask to help reduce future damage, prevent breakage and to strengthen hair and improve manageability. Do you suffer with a lot of frizz over the summer months? The My Hair. My Canvas. Easy Does It Air-Dry Balm is one of our favourite products for frizz. A frizz-control balm, this product is great for helping enhance natural styles without heat application (which we all love to experiment with during the summer months!). It’s also lightweight and won’t weigh your hair down.
This product is also a handy staple to have in your handbag to fix your hair throughout the day/night if needed! If your hair does start to feel built up with products in the summer months, you can use a product like our My Hair. My Canvas. Meltaway No-Rinse Micellar Cleanser to absorb oil and sweat from the hair and break down product residue to make your hair feel shower clean! For shine our go to product is the My Hair. My Canvas. Shine On Defining Foam. This foam adds radiance, smoothness and manageability to heat or air- dried styles and is the perfect finishing product for your summer hair care routine. Alternatively, you can add our My Hair. My Canvas. Glow Crazy Shine Booster into your regular conditioner or hair mask to provide your hair with moisture, smoothness, manageability and an incredible high shine! There’s nothing well all want more in summer than Instagramable, super smooth, soft and silky hair that’s easy to manage! The judges loved this winning product range in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards.
