Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Off topic: Organic haircare

Ok, so I know this is a blog about eco friendly fashion. But of course no one interested having a green closet isn't somewhat curious about going green in other areas of their life. The first stop for that would be Treehugger's fantastic green guides. But there are a few favorites of mine that are just too wonderful not to spread the word. So that's what weekends are for!

My first post about green products absolutely HAS to be about John Masters. Everything in his line of hair and skin products is both organic and totally luxurious. Right now, my hair routine is completely streamlined: Citrus and Neroli Detangler when I get out of the shower, and a touch of Sea Mist Sea Spray with Lavender (I never mastered the blow drier, so have been a convicted faux-drier since even before it occurred to me to save the electricity.)

Not only am I delighted by how easy the John Masters make my hair, but I had a gorgeous hair cut at his clean air salon in NY. It was a treat to myself on our last trip down, and I'll have to admit, I wasn't wowed when I walked out. My poor friend A had to listen to me whine all afternoon that it was a beautiful cut, but I wanted "more." But after a wash and style of my own, I realized, what "more" could I want than a beautiful cut that always looks beautiful? Seriously, the John Masters stylist managed to tame my thin-yet-curly mane into a perfectly respectable cascade of waves (well, the stylist and the detangler, of course.) So yeah, I drank the kool-aid. But I look great doing it!
