Nowadays, I think twice and read ingredient labels before buying certain foods. Why not do the same for all the beauty products I buy?

The amount of chemicals found in every day products is not only shocking but downright disgusting. As hard as it was to leave my favorite products behind, I’ve found some even better products.

One of the brands I’ve recently tried is Kiehl’s. It’s been hard to find a shampoo with natural ingredients that actually gets the job done, but Kiehl’s Amino Acid Shampoo with Pure Coconut Oil along with Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Conditioner are products that actually perform.

With other natural shampoos, the conditioner isn’t hydrating enough and leaves my hair dry. Kiehl’s Olive conditioner is actually thicker and creamier than other formulas. Something I like to do especially in the Summer months is leave the conditioner in my hair for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. I also comb it right before rinsing…It leaves my hair softer and more manageable for styling.

The Amino Acid Shampoo with Pure Coconut Oil, sold me because of the coconut oil ingredient. Coconut oil is extremely hydrating. Sometimes I actually slather pure coconut oil onto my skin. You can also take a teaspoon of coconut oil every morning to hydrate your skin and boost your immune system. If it’s in my shampoo, even better!

Kiehl’s is available at and department stores worldwide. You can find coconut oil at most health food stores.
