To Your Hair. With Love, India

Who would know how to care for color-treated hair best than the folks who brought us the all-natural henna hair formulas that give great color without the chemical damage? Yes, this is a line that is truly a gift to those of us who've strayed from our natural hair color.

From the India-based firm, the Surya Brasil Color Fixation Collection includes shampoo and conditioner ($10), a restorative hair mask ($9), serum for split ends ($8) and a leave-in conditioner ($8). I'm quite partial to the leave-in cream that eliminates tangles and creates amazing post-blowdry shine. I'm easily susceptible to fraying, and the split ends serum has put a stop to that without leaving my hair looking greasy. And since I've been using these two, I've gotten several compliments on my highlights (if they only knew how long I've had them!).

The products are infused with tons of botanicals like rose oil, bark and leaf extracts, rice proteins and essential oils like ylang ylang and jasmine. What are they lacking? Parabens, mineral oils and synthetic colors and fragrances. They are even safe enough for pregnant women or those allergic to typical hair-coloring products. It's definitely hair care worth trying out.
