Babes! This Summer has been so wonderful. One of my favorite parts of it has been the work I have done to develop the Free Your Hair Earth Collection, a new collection of 100% plant based, sustainably harvested, small batch made-with-love hair care products, which will be for sale here at HTHG and in selected boutiques and salons around the country!
The development of this lovely line of conscious hair care has involved planting seeds, harvesting herbs and flowers, sourcing oils, dying fabrics with natural pigments, picking flowers, making flower mandalas, mixing plant and earth-based powders, testing recipes, blending essential oils, shooting inspirational photos with some of my favorite women, laughing my ass off, crying (once when the spout got knocked off of our test oil infusion, draining the entire gallon of plant vibes and liquid gold into the dirt, ) and harnessing the power of the sun’s natural light to infuse our signature plant blend in organic oil, for the high-vibe Free Your Hair Infusion which goes into 3 of our 4 products.
Rosemary is a very effective herb in fighting dandruff and ailments of the scalp. It is used to prevent hair loss and premature graying. It has strong detoxifying qualities for both the hair and skin. It is great for removing buildup from hair.
Calendula is a fantastic natural anti-oxidant that protects the hair and skin against environmental stresses. It is a natural sunscreen and helps with cuticle sealing. It also has potent healing and soothing abilities, so it is perfect for skin and scalp conditions. It is best used on hair that is over-exposed to the elements and dried out ( Parched Summer ends!)
Dried Rosebuds Are a natural gentle balancer for the hair and skin. They add moisture and shine, smell fantastic, and are very beneficial to finer hair types. Women with hormonal issues can benefit from rosebud infusions internally and externally. Plus, they add a lovely scent and pink hue to all infusions.
Chamomile has been used for centuries to lighten the hair and add golden highlights. It boosts body and leaves a lovely shine. It is best used to add body and tone to lighter, finer hair types.
Lavender Is a healing and stimulating tonic for the hair and skin. It is used to invigorate the scalp and add fullness to fine hair. The scent of lavender is used to help with anxiety and insomnia.
Horsetail is perhaps the most powerful of beauty herbs. It has the highest silica content of any plant in the plant kingdom. Silica is a building block of collagen, a protein found in hair and skin. It strengthens the hair and plumps the skin when used as a topical tea, oil, or vinegar infusion or when made as a tea to drink. It’s effects are fast and visible. It coats the hair with a protective layer and adds both thickness and integrity.
Burdock root is full of Vitamin A and fatty acids that are essential to healthy cell production. It has long been used to hold in moisture and help sluggish hair grow faster.
Borage has very high levels of GLA, gamma linolenic acid, an important essential fatty acid which aids in healthy hair and skin growth.
Nettles are a powerful circulation booster for the skin of the scalp…..It helps to treat and prevent hair loss, dandruff, psoriasis, and eczema while stimulating healthy new growth.
These wonderful plants are wild-crafted by myself and my family, when available, or sourced locally and harvested sustainably. The oils and butters in our products are 100% fair trade, organic, and sustainable. We are taking enormous care and pride in the entire process of creating this line, and we cant WAIT to get them into your hair.
The Free Your Hair Earth Collection will be made in batches of 30 items pr batch, and we expect they will sell out quite fast so be sure to follow us on Instagram to get our official release notice so you can get your orders in!
