By now, you all know that I am a huge fan of natural beauty and skincare products. Many traditional products contain potentially harmful ingredients like parabens, pthalates, sulfates, and even formaldehyde, just to name a few. Yes, I just said formaldehyde. You know, embalming fluid? This is the same deadly substance that was recently receiving so much bad press because of the Brazilian Blowout hair treatments. People were getting ill due to the exposure to this nasty chemical, and were experiencing burning eyes, throats, noses, and suffering from nasty headaches. Now who in their right mind would want to put that on their body prematurely? Not me!
I have been saying all along that if you cannot pronounce it, you probably shouldn't be slathering it on your hair, skin, or nails. I've been using "clean cosmetics" for quite some time, and my skin and hair are in better condition than ever!
That's why I was excited when I learned about Original Sprout. This is a fantastic company that offers a line of Free & Clean hair and skin products that are 100% Vegan and safe for everyone...Even babies! Being the mom of two children under the age of 2, this is something I definitely appreciate. After all, babies have such delicate skin, and it deserves the utmost protection from any and all ingredients deemed harmful. As parents, we want only the best for our babies, and Original Sprout is making that happen with their safe, effective product line.
I received an assortment of these fantastic products for review. I was so excited to try them, not only on myself, but on my children, too! That is saying a lot, since I usually don't review these types of products on my kids. But with Original Sprout, I can do so worry-free, since these products are 100% safe and gentle.
The first product I'd like to tell you about is the Original Sprout Natural Shampoo. This shampoo is fabulous! It has a gentle pH of 6.0-7.0, which is ideal for color retention. Yes, I color my hair from time to time. I have noticed in the past that a lot of shampoos tend to strip the color, making it dull looking. I recently went darker since summer time is over and I wanted to darken up the red in my hair and make it autumn ready. I have been using the Natural Shampoo for a couple of weeks, and not only has my hair retained my new, darker color, it is also retaining moisture. No more dry, brittle, stripped hair! I also noticed that my hair is easy to comb after washing, which is a HUGE plus. I have very long,very thick and wavy waist length hair, and tangling is a constant battle for me. Original Sprout Natural Shampoo has definitely helped keep the knots to a minimum, while leaving my hair shiny and clean feeling. Another big plus? This shampoo doesn't leave behind any nasty residue. All you feel is clean, healthy hair!
I also tested this shampoo on my babies and experienced the same great results. Okay, maybe not the color retention as my babies have "virgin" hair. At first, I was concerned that if the babies got shampoo in their eyes, they might cry. This was not the case at all. Natural Shampoo is incredibly gentle. I don't know if it's specifically formulated to be tear-free, but we had no tears here at all! And the shampoo was easy to rinse, lathered well on their hair, and left their hair smelling wonderfully clean. My babies had shiny, soft, tangle-free hair. I love this shampoo!
The best part? Original Sprout Natural Shampoo is free of Phytoestrogens Lavender & Tea Tree, Phthalates, Clove & Musk. It also contains no soy, gluten, honey, peanuts or dairy, making it totally Vegan-friendly. It is scented with natural ingredients, and smells wonderful. The scent is light and clean. The shampoo is also cruelty free, and is ideal for all hair types. This is one versatile, effective, and super-gentle shampoo!
The next product I'd like to share is a "Miracle in a bottle", if you ask me. The Original Sprout Miracle Detangler is worth its weight in gold! This easy to use, easy to distribute spray detangler makes tough knots and tangles a thing of the past. Like I said before, I have the most awful time combating tangles, since my hair is extra-long, very thick, and wavy. (Can we say recipe for disaster?!) I struggle with tangles daily, especially in the underneath layers of hair around the nape of the neck. Freeing these knots has been painful, difficult, and has even caused damage to my hair in the past.
I will freely admit, I was skeptical about the Miracle Detangler, since similar products have disappointed me in the past. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! Even the nastiest knots are no match for this amazing product. I simply spray it into my hair and comb through, and the knots seem to magically release! It is easy to comb and distribute, and it doesn't leave a nasty residue or greasy feeling behind. This product helps to tame frizz and prevent breakage as well. I wish I would have found this product years ago! The Original Sprout Miracle Detangler truly lives up to its name!
Like all other Original Sprout Products, the Miracle Detangler is 100% Vegan, is cruelty-free, and is perfumed with natural ingredients.
Last but certainly not least, I'd like to share the Original Sprout Face & Body Sunscreen. This sunscreen won Babbles Best Sunscreen Award, and for good reason! This great sunscreen is made from natural Zinc, and is completely safe for the entire family. Even those with acne issues or sensitive skin! I love this sunscreen because it goes on and absorbs quickly with no greasy residue. It also helps preserve the skin's natural moisture, and even helps keep make-up in place! Talk about versatility!
The Original Sprout Face & Body Sunscreen is also incredibly gentle and can even be used on the youngest members of the family. I have used this on my babies, and there have been no "Ouchie Eyes" at all! My toddler has a habit to rubbing her eyes, and she has actually gotten residual sunscreen in her eyes before and did not like it one bit. Well, the Original Sprout Face & Body Sunscreen has proven to be as gentle and safe as their other amazing products! It also lasts quite awhile, and a little bit goes a very long way, making this an economical choice that your family can feel good about.
As with all other Original Sprout products, this is 100% Vegan, cruelty free, gentle, and totally safe.
Overall, I am very pleased with the products I sampled from the nice folks at Original Sprout. They are safe, very effective, and are gentle enough for use on my babies. I love the fact that these products are completely natural and organic, and contain no nasty chemicals whatsoever. Who said going green meant you have to sacrifice performance? If you've ever been skeptical about natural personal care products, I challenge you to try Original Sprout and their fantastic line of Free & Clean products. I just know they'll make a believer out of you!
