ELÄVÄ Botanik: organic hair smoothie (review & giveaway)

Smoothies are one of my lifelines when I’m pregnant.  I like them the rest of the time, but they are a constant for all nine-months of growing a baby.  My basic recipe is a glob of yogurt, glug of orange juice, banana, some type of greenery (spinach, kale, etc…) and any kind of fruit.  During the winter, the freezer is stocked full of the makings for a quick smoothie.  Beckett has inherited my love, too.  It was bred into her.

Here is an absolutely adorable video of Beckett enjoying a smoothie at about 20 mos. old

Have you ever heard of a hair smoothie?  Me neither.  But, you’ll get my attention quickly when you tell me a personal care product is made with 100% organic food-grade ingredients.

ELÄVÄ Botanik’s creator, Julian Huxley, has created just this kind of product – a smoothie for your hair that is 100% organic.  The ingredients are food-grade and include water, organic soap nuts, organic oils and fruits, vitamins, xanthum gum and glycerin.  The “fresh until date” sticker and dark, light-reducing bottles are key to the perishable ingredients and effectiveness of the hair care.  The shampoo and conditioner I have been using for awhile now is the Papaya and it’s targeted towards normal hair.  The shampoo is a thick, delicious smelling product that lathers up quickly and sudses your hair in bubbles and papaya bits.  The conditioner is one of those ultra-moisturizing products that manages to keep your hair light and flowing with no extra weight from byproducts.  The other varieties include a Mango Shampoo and Conditioner and Avocado Shampoo and Conditioner.  The organic ingredients and pride that ELÄVÄ takes in their product comes through clearly in the end result of your hair!

At ELÄVÄ, they “believe that it’s not only about what goes into a great product…it’s about what doesn’t go in.” When it comes to caring for your body and what your exposure level is, what’s on the label is just as important as what is not on the label.
