A short rundown of the products/companies/pieces I love, the ones that I am not a fan of, and the ones that I’m still not quite sure about.
I am absolutely smitten with Klorane dry shampoo. I have naturally oily skin, and a little while back I got bangs. I did not anticipate the weird problem this would create. By about 5 every day, my bangs would become a visibly greasy mess. Nothing horrifying, but pretty unappealing. I resigned myself to the idea that I may have to take a shower each day after work in order to go out, but then I found Klorane.
Klorane dry shampoo absolutely delivers. I spray a bit into my hair, focusing especially on my bangs. I have dark hair, so it does leave a powdery white residue that I just comb out. I also noticed if I spray the bottom side of my hair, I can skip this step. This stuff wildly exceeded my expectations- my hair is fluffy, light and clean within minutes. I cannot say enough good things about this product. The only downside is that one can is $18 at my local Sephora, and I use this pretty much daily. I’m looking for a cheaper brand at the moment, hoping to find something affordable and comparable.
Threads 4 Thought organic cotton tees. These are made by an eco-conscious company making sustainable apparel. While this makes me high five myself (tricky), I would buy these tees at Walmart if that's where I had to go. I practically live in them. I actually discovered my first one in TJ Maxx- I bought it off the sale rack for $5 and wore it until it fell apart. I tracked the company down, knowing I'd need more immediately. They are thin, super soft, and ridiculously comfortable. The website claims that this is possibly the best fitting tee on the planet, and I absolutely agree. The best part? They're just $10 apiece. How can you beat that? I have them in 4 different colors, with every intent to buy more. The site has some other really pretty clothing, but I haven't branched out yet.
