7 Clean Hair Brands To Try This Earth Day

By Aisha Beau Johnson 

With the change of season generally comes an update to our hair care routines. As we transition out of the cold, dry, brittleness of winter, we prepare for humidity, more sun (yay!), and frizz of the summer.

With that in mind, it may be time to enlist an updated arsenal of products to get the job done. With Earth Day just around the corner, April 22nd, why not choose products that are both good for our tresses and the environment?

So, in celebration of Anser’s recent launch in Target this month, we’ve decided to put together a round-up of clean hair brands that can be found in their stores!

Odele Beauty

This woman-owned and operated brand is the ultimate in clean haircare. Each of its products are completely vegan, cruelty-free, and dermatologist tested. Not to mention, they also offer a complete Curl Defining Collection, to help retain moisture and combat frizz.

Love Beauty and Planet

This brand’s entire mission is to give love to our communities and planet by not only creating products that are vegan and cruelty free, but their packaging is sustainable. Love Beauty and Planet utilizes recycled materials to create their bottles, and are on the road to having 100% recyclable, compostable, or reusable packaging.

Jozi Curls

This curl-friendly brand features products that are infused with African Plant Extracts to help hydrate, soothe, and soften the hair follicles. All of which are sustainably sourced from indigenous farms in South Africa.

Recently, they’ve made this process and their clean products available in store using specialized “boosters” to create the ideal formulation specifically for you.
