Beauty Heroes November 2015: Josh Rosebrook

IMG_5364

Beauty Heroes is a non-toxic beauty service delivered monthly, one hero product at at time for $39.00 a month for non-toxic beauty products.  Beauty Heroes is different from other beauty boxes because they give a full-size product or products and side kick.  I just joined Beauty Heroes, but I’m already a big fan of what they are doing.  They rotate between skin, body, sun and haircare products and you can also skip a month or buy a 3 or 6 month subscription to save a little money.  Beauty Heroes members also receive 15% off products in their shop.  Fabulous!

Each box comes with the information booklet regarding the Hero Product and sidekick.  Also inside is a pocket guide with a list of “Villain” ingredients to avoid in products.  Love this.  This is so handy to keep in your purse or bag to check product labels for nasty ingredients or “Villains.”

Josh Rosebrook

I can’t say enough about Josh Rosebrook Balance Shampoo and Conditioner.  I’ve been getting so many compliments on my hair lately.  It really does matter what ingredients go into products.  Beauty Heroes described Josh Rosebrook as using an holistic approach to skin and hair care.  As a hairstyist, Josh realized the body’s ability to heal itself after he created his first product, the cacoa antioxidant face mask.  He studied plants and their capacities to restore and repair hair which lead to his hair products line.  Fueled by his passion to make people feel better, more beautiful and confident, Josh works with a team of phyto-chemists and herbalists to develop high-performing skin care and hair care formulas.

On Josh Rosebrook’s website the Balance Shampoo and Conditioner are $30 each.  So with Beauty Heroes you get both products plus sidekick Hairspray for $39 what a steal!

The Balance Shampoo and conditioning duo finely tunes all hair types to optimal balance.  It’s light weight and doesn’t leave my hair weighed down or greasy.  These are made with organic extracts of allow vera, hemp, jojoba and flax seed and many other natural ingredients.  The Balance Shampoo and Conditioner are a lightweight combination of coconut, shea, olive and meadow foam plant oils.  Also infused in these beauties are rose-hip and rose essential oils which are usually reserved for high-end face care formulas.  No wonder I really love Josh Rosebrook.

You only need to use a small amount of shampoo to cover hair and scalp so the shampoo lasts a long time.  After massaging thoroughly it can be left in the hair for 3 minutes to stimulate follicles and nourish scalp.  I only do this a few times a week, but my hair feels really soft after.  I’ve tried other natural shampoos and this is my favorite because it cleans without stripping my hair and maybe because it does feel more like what I’m used to.  I follow this by the conditioner, which should be applied mid-shaft to ends of hair, but sometimes I forget.  The conditioner can also be left on for up to three minutes,  Like a mini spa day or “spa in the shower”.  Lastly, the sidekick Hair Spray Firm Hold was a great addition to this box.  It works to control hair styles who encouraging strong hair growth.  It’s natural and it works without the sticky feeling from conventional hair sprays.

If you’re looking for non-toxic amazing hair products check out Josh Rosebrook, the Balance Shampoo and Conditioner is my favorite so far.  I would also recommend Beauty Heroes, it’s such a great way to explore the green beauty world and get safe non-toxic products that are expert tested and really work.
