To tame your tresses without stressing them, skip the sulfates, silicone and synthetics and instead look for nurturing, plant-based products. Botanical blends work splendidly on hair and are usually much less harsh than preparations full of foaming agents and detergents. Jonathan Product is a premium salon line with a difference. Their shampoos are infused with a sugar-derived surfactant to cleanse gently and any water in the formula has been deionized and purified. Ojon's Volumizing Foam uses palm nut oil from the remote rainforests of Central America to deeply condition and coddle hair without weighing it down. And Weleda Rosemary Conditioner does its smoothing and detangling job with a mixture of rosemary extract, aloe vera and calendula. (This company knows its way around kinder, gentler products — they've been doing business since 1921.) Nature's Gate also makes a great line of value-priced (yet heavenly) shampoos and conditioners, so you can go green while saving some green.
