Ready To Go "Green" With Your Hair?

Is it just me or has everything been going "green" lately? Cars and cleaning supplies and toiletries... Everything. It kind of, just a little, maybe in some way...seems like a big, giant, marketing ploy? There's usually some big, socially conscious, thing people are always pimping. Is going green the latest in a long line of BS?

I'm not sure that I have enough real information about this and I'm certainly no expert, nor do I claim to have done any extensive research on the subject, but I do question the whole "green" concept sometimes.

Regardless of my own personal beliefs, the reality of the situation is that "green" products seem like the future we're in store for, so we may as well jump on the bandwagon now, right?

I have to admit that I am pretty curious about all natural products. I've heard pretty awful things about what all the chemicals in beauty products do to our skin and hair, so I'd be more than willing to give products without all that stuff in them a try.

Enter Louise Galvin Carbon Neutral Beauty, and more specifically, the Natural Shampoo line. Created by celebrity hair colorist, Louise Galvin, this hair care line is made up of formulas that contain no harsh ingredients like sulphates, parabens, silicone, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and polymers. I don't know about you, but I can't say I don't love the sound of not putting all that crap in my hair.

It appears that Louise Galvin has some pretty big celebrity fans that include the lovely Emily Blunt (who's hair I love!) and Sophie Dahl.

The line has specifically formulated products for curly, fine, damaged, and dry hair types so it's pretty much a full spectrum of goodies to try out. There is even a Mother-to-Be, New Mothers, and Baby that is supposed to be gentle enough for newborns. I definitely think I'd love to try these products.

Maybe going "green" really is the way to go.

What do you guys think? Has anyone tried these or other "green" products? I'd love to hear about your experiences!
