Eco-friendly and organic products are all the rage. Everything from toiletries to make-up is being designed to benefit you and the environment. Eco-friendly hair care products like shampoo and conditioner benefit your hair as much as the environment around you. They can also be affordable.
Some things to look for when buying eco-friendly shampoo and conditioner include the bottle it is packaged in (is it marked with a recycling logo?), the ingredients (are they organic and all natural?) and how the product is tested (is it tested on animals or animal free?).
