Olivia Garden Embraces Eco-Beauty with the First Bamboo Hair Brush & Comb Collection.

Olivia Garden, a leader in the hair care industry, introduced the first eco-friendly collection of hair brushes named Healthy HairTM. Healthy hair brushes provide deep scalp massage, which activates blood cell circulation and helps stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss. It promotes healthy hair cells and healthy scalp and helps restore hair balance and shine.

The Healthy Hair brushes are made of eco-friendly natural bamboo materials. Bamboo is a resilient 100% natural renewable resource, making these brushes not only a better choice for the environment, but a stronger, lighter and more durable alternative to wood. Traditional wooden brushes come from trees that are cut down to make consumer goods. Over time, this practice can damage the environment, natural living habitat and even contribute to global warming.

Healthy Hair contains 5 separate collections (offering a total of 20 brushes and combs), covering every hair styling need:
  • Healthy Hair Bamboo Ionic Massage brushes have unique thick, bamboo, ball- point bristles used to detangle, brush or style. At the same time, they massage and stimulate the scalp to promote hair growth.
  • Healthy Hair Bamboo Ionic Paddle brushes easily style and detangle, and are equipped with an ion-charged cushion and bristles to restore the hair’s natural shine.
  • Healthy Hair Bamboo Ceramic Ionic Thermal brushes have a ceramic coated barrel that heats up quickly and stays hot longer. Its ionic bristles help with restoring hair balance and shine.
  • Healthy Hair Bamboo Professional Boar Styling brushes have 100% natural boar bristles to achieve superior styling results. Gentle on the hair, these brushes are ideal for straightening and adding luster to dull strands.
  • Healthy Hair Eco-Friendly Bamboo Combs are durable, strong combs ideal for detangling and styling from the roots to the ends.
Olivia Garden’s Healthy Hair brushes are currently available at Ulta and select retailers nationwide.
OGX Quenching Coconut Curls Collection is, "an island-inspired blend of coconut oil, sweet honey, and citrus oil creates a sweet escape for lackluster curls that want to bounce and shine like the sea. This rejuvenating blend helps to nourish strands, boost spirals, and reduce flyaways to bring out your best curl days every day."

Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo and Conditioner: Curls look better when they’re quenched. Lavish your curls with a rich blend of nourishing coconut oil that enhances the natural softness, and sweet honey that boosts decadent spirals. A twist of citrus oils is the final touch to tame frizz for beautiful tumbling waves with bounce and shine.

Quenching Coconut Curls Curling Hair Butter: Lather on this versatile hair butter to boost your curls’ hydration. Leave it in for a moisturizing treatment or rinse it out for use as a deep conditioner.

    1. I think that it's actually pretty easy to begin rotating in greener products. Doing so definitely makes you start scrutinizing the chemicals in all of the products that we use all of the time! The blush sticks are AWESOME! <3
