If you go through the trouble and expense of having your hair colored, you want it to last. But too often regular shampoos and conditioners not only strip color, they also are full of unfriendly toxic ingredients. These gentle botanical formulas are designed to go easy on color and everything else. Vegan-friendly and made without toxic parabens or sodium lauryl or laureth sulfates, they contain antioxidant-rich green tea extract to protect hair from the color-fading effects of sun and environmental damage. Plus, they’re preserved with cloudberry extract, a vitamin C–rich arctic berry. Alba Botanica is owned by Avalon Organics, one of the first companies to sign the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, so you know that when you leave the shower after washing with this stuff, your hair is truly clean.
