Yarok Haircare Review

Not sure if many of you know, but I work one day a week at a hair salon. I’ve been doing hair now for 11 years and love it. I’ve tried so many shampoos, conditioners and hair products. In the past couple of years, I’ve been looking for more natural and organic based products and unfortunately our local supply house doesn’t carry any. Most are filled with parabens, pthalates, sulfates and other chemicals that in the end do more damage to the hair than good.

I always suggest a brand to my clients so they can continue their hair care regimen at home, like many stylists do. However, it always bothered me that they are going home and using something filled with so many toxins and it was me who gave it to them. Something that I suggested to them, and it’s now polluting their home. To most people, this isn’t an issue because they don’t know or don’t care about all the details or ingredients and how harmful they can be. They just want their hair to look good.

I got to the point where I just wasn’t going to do that anymore and I made the switch. I was only using non toxic hair care on all my clients. Surprisingly enough, they all loved it. The issue that I was having though, it wasn’t working for everyone. With so many hair textures, I needed more. I needed more options.

I did some research and reached out to Yarok! An awesome woman named Jessica, who is also a hairstylist, returned my email. She knew exactly what my struggle had been and was more than accommodating when it came to allowing me to review their products. I knew I’d get these products into the salon, so I could give it a good run for what they could do.

When I got everything I could not wait to try it. In fact, I may or may not of got a shower and washed my hair right away..  what? ….I was excited!   Here were my thoughts…

First, I wanna start with the basics.. Shampoo!

20161021_200600

So, when we talk about moisturizing shampoo, I think thick and creamy. We rarely get that with shampoo. Usually it’s thin and clear..what’s moisturizing about that? Yarok’s moisture shampoo was awesome. It was thick and creamy and glided through my hair. Usually my hair after I shampoo it, is a ratted mess. Not with this. I was pretty surprised. If my hair wasn’t as dry as it is, I probably could of skipped the conditioner.

I left the shampoo in the shower for my husband to try. He has some length on his hair and its pretty coarse. As soon as he got out of the shower, he just looked at me… I didn’t say a word. He said, “I really like that shampoo”. He’s pretty honest too. If he doesn’t like something, he will say it. So I pleased that he tried both the shampoo and conditioner and was pleased!

Big thing for me is that I don’t have to worry about my color stripping out fast. I color my hair red and I can tell you..I hate coloring it so much. With this, I have no worries. A little tip for my readers… if you enjoy getting your hair colored, only use a sulfate free shampoo. If it has any sulfate, your color will fade fast.

With this it’s made from vitamin infused water and Organic Fair Trade African black soap! It also has tons of hydration from the Argan, Organic Coconut and Organic Hemp Seed Oils! This is a good one!

The only thing that I wasn’t super excited about was the scent. Just didn’t mesh well with me. 

According to their Yarok Bible, Argan Kernel and Nut Oils are great for repairing damaged hair, moisturizing, repairing split ends while restoring shine; increases hair growth and helps control, cure and prevent dry, itchy scalp.

The other shampoo I got to try was the Volumizing Shampoo!

20161021_200713

This is huge desire for so many of my clients. They all want fuller hair with more volume. I wanted a shampoo to offer them that was natural. Usually when they want fuller hair, they are teasing their hair as much as possible and depending on what they are using for shampoo, it’s breaking their hair off.

I used this on a few different clients. Short hair, shoulder length hair with layers and even a girl with long one length hair. I was pretty surprised that after blow drying the hair, even the ends had more volume. They say that the organic and natural herbs, flowers, vitamins, minerals and essential oils actually plump the hair. I’d have to agree with this!

The Calendula oil in the shampoo soothes inflammation and irritation. It clarifies, fights dandruff, improves texture,shine and elasticity and even brightens highlights!

The volumizing line also has a Conditioner!

20161021_200647

This was probably a favorite of mine. I can never get a conditioner through my hair at my temples. It always gets tangled and I feel like I have to rip through it. Not with this. Hair glided right through my fingers. This was a huge headache saver for me….literally!

My husband is a huge fan of this conditioner. He will keep saying..”feel how soft my hair is”. I think it’s safe to say it won him over.

Best thing that I noticed is that it is really creamy, and most creamy conditioners will leave your hair flat…  not the case here! Love it!

Nettle is one of the ingredients- rich in vitamins and minerals, improves the strength and supports hair growth!

 

So, after you get out of the shower always use a Leave In Conditioner!!

20161021_223717

I used this a lot on my daughter’s hair. I only wash my hair about every 4-5 days and I try to wash hers every 2-3 days. She could probably go longer if she didn’t sweat so much when she sleeps. She is pretty tender headed. Always flinching when a brush comes near her head. However, this did help with some of the tangles and it actually helped her hair curl a little more than normal.

I like it because my hair feels smooth while it’s wet. If I don’t use anything, my hair feels really blown out and there is that fried texture.

It’s good to put on your hair before you blow dry it to protect it from the heat as well. This is super important. Always use some form of heat protection.

One of the ingredients is Primrose Oil.. it’s used to moisturize the hair and scalp. It’s also high in fatty acids.

 

Next, I like to use a Root Boosting Mousse!

20161021_223628

I used this a couple different ways in the salon. Both ways were directed by Yarok on how to use it and it was great!

Basically, you can use it as a regular root booster. Putting some in the root area and then blow drying in the opposite direction of which it grows.. great volume.

Or, you can apply it to dry hair by scrunching the mousse in sections and drying to achieve the beachy wave. Super cute and really in style right now!

Feed Your Roots has Black Currant Extract which encourages hair growth and strength!

 

The next two I actually enjoyed using together on wet hair! Feed Your Shine and Feed Your Do!

20161021_200839

So, these two I really liked mixing together and putting on my wet hair, right on the ends. I read that when mixing these two is like a power punch of moisture.. let me tell ya…. After blow drying my hair, my ends felt so nice! This is definitely a thing I’m going to be carrying at the shop for when the girls want super blonde hair… this will be my secret weapon!

20161021_200759

The Feed Your Do is also great for putting a little on your hands and getting rid of those fly aways!!

Next, Let’s talk Hair Spray!

20161021_200818

Hairspray and I are like BFFs.. I love me some hairspray, but I hate all the horrible things that can be in it. When its prom or wedding season, the salon can really give me a headache. Not that I don’t love doing updos, but the smell of hairspray all day makes my head hurts so bad. I know it’s because my body is telling me that it’s bad and I shouldn’t be around it. However, it’s my job.. This is getting added to the better hairspray basket!

I used this a few times in the salon. It’s taken me a while to get use to spritz hairsprays but this one is pretty awesome. This stuff really works! I can confidently use this on a bride and be confident the curls are going to hold!

When my husband and I were away for a wedding this was the hairspray I brought. I really wanted to see how well it was going to hold. I sprayed each piece of hair before I curled it. You better believe 12 hours later and driving home, my hair looked exactly the way it did that morning when I did it. Insane!

Oh! It’s not sticky either. I can do updo after updo and I can walk on the floor after I am done. Usually my feet are glued to the floor because of all the hairspray!

It smells fabulous too. I think from the Rosemary Oil, which promotes hair growth and strengthens hair..

 

Do you see it yet??  All the ingredients basically promote hair growth!! Not break it off and make it brittle and dry!!   Quality!!

 

So, like I mentioned before, I try not to wash my hair that often.. best thing ever for this is… Dry Shampoo!

20161021_200854

So, I know a lot of ladies that sprinkle baby powder in their hair.. Yes it does work, however…SO BAD FOR YOU! Please please do your research on talc powder. Yarok uses organic Arrowroot Tapioca powder and organic Corn Starch to absorb the oils in the hair to help stretch out the time between washing your hair.

I especially liked using this on clients for volume. I’d sprinkle a little in while styling and backcomb the hair to add some volume. It gave some great texture to the hair!

I really liked this!

The Defining Creme was a big hit!

20161021_200916

I have some curly haired clients and I have curly/wavy hair as well. Biggest complaint is FRIZZ! Oh that awful frizz that can ruin a perfectly good hair day in seconds. Plus going back to when I said I don’t wash my hair that often..well when I wear it curly, we’re talking more like 7-8 days without washing. That’s always my goal. Anything that’s going to give my hair a little bit of  a break. The one thing that makes me really start hating my hair on day 4 is..flyaways and frizz. I always have to get my hair damp again and try to rework it with out making it worse.

Using the defining creme I was able to get more curl and less frizz. My Dream! It did still get frizzy because of sleeping on it, but I’d just mist my hair with water (not really wet like before) and run some more defining creme through it again lightly. problem solved!

Clients really liked it. Most of my curly headed girls walk out still damp in fear of the dreaded frizz. Yes, I can use a diffuser on them, but if they don’t want to continue that at home I’d prefer for their hair to look the same after I do it. One of my girls told me she really liked it. Her curls were soft and managable and they didn’t get crunchy!

According to the Yarok Bible they sent me, they suggest using it on days you’ll use a flat iron..it’ll keep your hair straighter longer!! Great Tip!!

 

Last but not least, a Treatment!! Ooohhh!

20161021_200729

The one thing that I love about this treatment is that it helps correct all the crappy things the enviroment can do to your hair! Im talking sun damage and aging! I actually used this for the first time right after I took all of these pictures. I forgot I had it! Which is sad because it worked so well.

I have some clients that I cannot wait to get this on their hair. I have clients that vacation is hot sunny places and come to me wondering why their hair doesn’t look as great as it did. The sun and the atmosphere can do some damage and wear it out.. I always encourage wearing a hat in the sun, not only to protect your hair but also your skin 🙂

It’s really easy to use too. Put it on your hair and let it sit for 10 mins and wash and condition. Easy peasy! Plus the citrus smell is yummy!

Sweet Orange Oil is good for so many things too. Helps increase blood flow and circulation which is something that screams healthier scalp and hair growth! Love it!

 

Overall this is a really great line of haircare! Like I said I’ve tried anything and everything and when it comes to finding a great natural/organic product line that works so well.. Yarok hit all the bullet points for me.

Plus, I just love their overall mission! Their name alone in Hebrew means “Green”. How cool is that? They are all about preserving the planet. Actually Yarok donates 3% of its annual profits to The Pachamama Alliance. This project helps support the indigenous people of Ecuador and Peru to protect over 10 million acres of the Amazonian Rainforest!

Yarok is definitely a brand that you should check out. They use quality products that are pure. No hidden junk! Love it! Huge shoutout again to them for being a company that people can depend on for great products!

Check them out on their website or Facebook!

Miessence Product Reviews

I have another great review for you! I like it because, 1. I never heard of this brand and 2. I am supporting another beautiful lady in a natural organic momma group I am in. Looking further into the ingredients had me intrigued for sure. This brand is Miessence, and the beautiful lady I am talking about is Marie Beermann from Australia! I have to say first off, this blog has brought me to many parts of the world I would have never expected to reach and I am so excited that it has happened. If not, I doubt I would of heard of Miessence! They have all certified organic skincare, haircare, cosmetics, superfoods, homecare and other products. With Marie’s help I was able to check out the skincare and haircare line and I have nothing negative to say.

FOR WARNING the following content will contain photos of my face without makeup! Haha.. To any woman reading this, I’m sure can relate. As I was taking photos of my skin, I did with caution. Trying to find the appropriate light. However, I have to say it wasn’t that bad. These products were really conditioning and it made me feel confident. I didn’t have the horrible dry spots as I do usually. So, of course, I took pictures to share with you all.. Proceed with caution…..even though.. I felt pretty good!

So, after working most the day in the salon, my makeup had worn off some and with the heat outside my face melted somewhat. I was more than excited to wash my face and start over.

20160820_200858

 The Cleanser was great! Took my makeup off super easy. I didn’t feel like I needed to really scrub. I like that. My eyeliner is prone to raccoon eyes. This wasn’t the case. Washed off easily! See…

20160820_201050

Next, was the skin conditioner…..

20160820_201155

The skin conditioner was more of a skin serum. It was sooo smooth! The one thing I loved compared to other skin serums was that I didn’t feel like I was suffocating! It was light weight and moisturizing!

20160820_201325

The Moisturizer was probably my favorite!

20160820_201511

It was smooth and smelled ok. As I put it on, it made me think of tea and butter, which was kind of odd, but it faded. Overall, It made my skin feel wonderful! It wasn’t heavy and didn’t have a greasy feeling like other moisturizers I have tried. I would of felt confident to stop right here, go about my day, feeling like my skin felt beautiful!

20160820_201615

Next, I tried the foundations. Now I am a little picky when it comes to foundation. They can get clumpy, gritty and can dry out your skin. They make your skin look dry and flaky, so usually I just opt to not using any. However. Miessence didn’t disappoint! I tried 3 different kinds… Honey, Vanilla and Porcelain!

20160820_201815

20160820_201908

20160820_202043

I was pretty surprised when I used all 3 of these colors on different sections of my face. When they say translucent, they actually mean it. All 3 gave me a different glow when I rubbed them in. The honey gave me a warm glow. I liked it! It was a nice sun kissed color to my cheek. The vanilla I would use probably on a daily basis. It matched my skin and it didn’t look like I was wearing makeup at all. The Porcelain,  would work well under my eyes as they can get darker just a tad and this would be a good way to cancel that out! When they were rubbed in, it felt more like a lotion than a foundation.

Can you tell I used 3 different types of foundation? I think that’s what I like most. They have their slight differences but yet cover my imperfections!

20160820_202117

Eeeekk.. now forget you saw any of those images and just remember what I said…  Miessence is a win!!

I also had the pleasure to try some of their other products! Like the Shampoo and Conditioner….

20160820_202535

Now with being a hairstylist and trying every single shampoo and conditioner under the sun. I can be pretty bias, but this was pretty good! The shampoo, I only had to use once. I usually only wash my hair once every 5 days or so, which in turn I need to wash my hair twice to get it really clean. This shampoo, one time did the trick!

20160820_202353The conditioner, left my hair soft and pliable. It wasn’t heavy and was easy to get through my hair. My hair has a tendency to tangle easily… Not the case here… For a natural conditioner, this worked well for me!

20160820_20240320160820_20235820160820_202401

The last 3 products I used from Miessence were the Body Wash, Shave Gel and After Shave Balm. With body washes, I’m not to picky. As long as it smells decent (but not over powering with artificial fragrance) and cleans well, I don’t care. This body wash was good though. The smell was light, it lathered well and didn’t leave a soapy residue on my skin!

The Shave Gel and Balm worked well together. I shaved my legs with the gel. I have super sensitive skin. so shaving my legs always leaves me with bumps and the feeling of a rug burn. The shave gel worked well with my razor. It was smooth going on and let my razor get close. I felt like it moisturized as I used it and left no stubble.. YAY! The balm prevented any razor bumps. I was happy. I didn’t feel like I had burnt bumpy legs, probably because it has aloe vera! Plus, it was smooth! Happy lady right here!

Overall, I’d say Miessence is a winner. All the products I tried didn’t disappoint! They over exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend the brand to others! The ingredients list is easy to read on all the products and I knew what all of them were. The quality is great and price is probably more on the higher side for many, but more than reasonable for the quality you receive!

I hope you all give Miessence a chance!  Check out Miessence HERE or email Marie at mariebeermann22@gmail.com  with any questions you may have!

All Natural/Organic Baby Product Guide

Having children can make you a nervous wreck. You’re now responsible for this little human, to keep them happy and healthy. The happy part is pretty easy. Well, unless you’re child is like my youngest daughter, then it makes things a little more of challenge. However, for the most part, you play with them and give them attention and they are content. Keeping them healthy seems like it is a pretty easy job, but looking at labels anymore can make any heart race. So many preservatives, artificial who knows what and chemicals galore. Their little bodies and their super thin skin can be easily irritated by the smallest things. That’s why as parents we need to conscious of what we buy and use. To top it off, most of these chemicals are cancer causing. I know, I personally never want my child to ever have to go through something like that.

One thing to remember, just because the store sells it, doesn’t mean it’s safe. One large company years ago……*cough Johnson and Johnson *cough, finally removed formaldehyde from their ingredients and lately were sued for causing ovarian cancer with their talc (baby powder). It’s crazy to me. Just because they label products “soft” and “gentle”, could be anything but that. Or even better, using the words “natural”, when really only 1 ingredient is.  Just be aware and read your labels. If you can’t pronounce it, google it or look the product up yourself on the Environmental Working Group page.

Luckily, there are so many great companies that offer alternatives to many of the products we buy for our children. Yes, they might cost a little more, but it’s worth it.

I’ve been researching a lot of these companies and thinking about all the categories needing to cover. Anything and everything that touches their skin.. Eating is a whole other post..  but this is what I came up with. Please look at the ingredients list closely as most links just get you to a main page of products. If you question a product, run it through the EWG. Overall I hope this helps raise awareness to safer products to use for your children.

NaturOli Review + Coupon Code

I’m so excited to be able to write this review. Even though its funny that I’m excited over laundry detergent, shampoo, and soap, but the mom in me is one happy camper. Finding products that are truly safe to use around children can be hard. Some claim to be safe, but once you get down to the nitty gritty in the ingredients, some can be debatable.

I bring you…  NaturOli..

I was happy when I came across their website. They have a lot of great options. The products I tried were Soap Nuts, Liquid Laundry Detergent, Pretreat Laundry Stick, Shampoo Bar, Liquid Shampoo and a Cleansing Bar.

The ingredients in all the products are pure and natural. It was nice to be able to pronounce every ingredient and even know what it was! NaturOli are all about preserving the environment. The use all recyclable and biodegradable packaging and they take all the steps necessary to ensure and promote eco-friendly practices.

Speaking of the environment, I want to start with one of the products I was on the edge about first. I really wanted to like it because here in America alone, we dump thousands of gallons of shampoo down the drain daily just from rinsing it out of our hair in the shower. Shampoo contains chemical after chemical and our water treatment plants aren’t  designed to eliminate these chemicals, so all of these harmful chemicals make it back into our water supply. Scary….   So having safe alternatives, I love..

This product was NaturOli’s Secret Shampoo Bar.

  20160724_213937_resized_1

As a hairstylist, I was stoked. I wanted to like it, because it would give me another option to use in the salon. However, my experience was a little different.

I got in the shower and had the bar in my hand. I tried rubbing it in my hands and then into my hair… that didn’t work well for me. I found it worked best if I just rubbed the bar directly onto my head. It was so smooth.  It wasn’t extremely foamy, which is a positive thing. Plus, you can really tell where your missing to wash. It felt very conditioning, probably because it has coconut oil and olive oil. I didn’t feel like I needed to condition, but out of habit, I used just a little..  this was a mistake!

I had to wash my hair again the next morning. It felt greasy, like I didn’t get out all the conditioner. So, I rewashed with the shampoo bar and then blow dried. Once again, I wasn’t excited. My hair looked frizzy..but I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. I’m so glad I did. As the day went on, the better my hair looked. I had volume like WOAH!

 20160726_124812Last night, after my husbands shower, he mentioned he used the shampoo bar on his beard. He said he was pleased because the little bubbles it creates really gets in and cleans! I wouldn’t of even thought about using it for facial hair but it makes sense and could eliminate beard oils!

I read on their site that it takes a few washes to really get used to it, because it takes a little bit of time to eliminate all the stuff that’s in our hair that shouldn’t be there. Which explains why my hair felt the way it did. They are right though, the more I have used it, the better my hair looks and feels and it hasn’t faded my color one bit!

I used the liquid Nut Shampoo on my daughters hair. Her hair does tangle very easily, but I do feel as if I was able to brush through her hair easier! This was a win win for us. No tears and a happy child!


The other bar I tried was the Cleansing Bar. Using the “soap” from the soap nuts with beneficial oils really makes this cleansing bar great! It left my skin feeling soft and clean. The soap it creates is very creamy feeling and I knew it would be hydrating, which my skin always needs. I am a sufferer of psoriasis and my skin can freak out with certain products. With the cleansing bar, it was calming and actually helped with the redness!

20160724_213951_resized_1


Next, the Pretreat Stain Stick. With having 2 younger kids, comes with a ton of stained clothes. Every meal, every step outside, will lead to a stain. One of my kids favorites though to make would be a fruit stain. Blueberries, blackberries and strawberries are the most popular. Plus, the hardest to get out. So I wanted to try this stain stick on a fruit stain. I didn’t have to wait long for a stain to happen. This is a strawberry stain. It happened at a birthday party and it dried and sat for a good 5+ hours before it was even touched with the pretreat. I followed the directions and wet the stick and rubbed it on the stain. Waited 5 mins and threw it in the wash. I was shocked when it came out. Most of the fruit stains don’t come out on the first wash, but this one did! I was ecstatic. Check it out!

IMG_20160725_223508_resized_1


I loved the Extreme 18X concentrated liquid detergent. It is a very concentrated soap berry detergent that is gluten, corn and soy free. No sulfates, parabens, phthalates, phosphates, petro-chemicals, dyes or chemical brighteners. 100% fragrance free and great for sensitives skin and noses!

20160722_085503_resized_1

I was surprised when I read that you could use it for more than just detergent! You can mix it to make household cleaners, carpet cleaner, dish soap and even to wash your fruits and veggies! How many laundry detergents can you do that with?

100% Non Toxic!!  I love it!


When making the concentrated liquid detergent, they use Soap Nuts/Berries.

20160726_115439_resized

Which you can actually make your own liquid detergent and I’ll show you how in another post, but it is all based on a small nut! I am a huge fan of soap nuts. They are my all time favorite for laundry soap.I am very pleased with NaturOli’s soap nuts. The quality is great and they clean really well.

You only need about 5 or 6 nuts and you throw them into a muslin bag and toss it into the wash. It stays in there the whole cycle until the load is done. Like I mentioned before, with all the stains my house sees. The soap nuts do the trick!

20160726_115537_resized

You’ll want to find your nuts after every wash though. They can easily get lost in the clothes.

They don’t have a scent, which is okay! I usually add a drop of essential oil into the wash just to give a good smell naturally!

I also noticed with most soap nuts, you get a longer life from your nuts if you use cold water. Not as much soap is released with cold, but it still cleans well.

Overall the soap nuts are probably my favorite NaturOli product. I can do so much with it. Make cleaners, laundry soap, veggie cleaner and other household uses. Plus, when I’m done with it, I can put them in my compost to help add nutrients to the soil and plants! Very cool!

If you would like to get all of the products I mention, I have a special for you!

NaturOli has a great set with all of these included HERE!

AND you can get an additional 10% OFF by using the code:   ohmyorganics16

 

I hope you guys take the time and check out NaturOli. I promise if you’re like me and love non toxic ways of living…. this is for you!
