YAROK & Roll

I’ve written about the Cosmetics Database before, the online tool where you can enter almost any product and learn everything you want to know about what ingredients are in your hair and beauty goods. It’s like Google for glamazons. For most people it’s an eye-opener, and the more you learn, the more promo_peopleyou might lean toward using natural-based products (and be wary, “natural” is one of the most over-used, misguiding beauty buzzwords out there).  Just like clean diets, nobody’s perfect (even Gwyneth, despite what she might muse about on Goop), but the best we can to is strive to be better. That’s why when Rachel Lessene from Green Envy Eco-Boutique in Newport put me in touch with the makers of new organic hair care line she is carrying called YAROK, I was grateful.

Here’s the scoop: Each YAROK formula is a powerful blend of melissa_herborganic and all-natural botanicals that are consciously sourced and responsibly harvested. YAROK uses primarily “certified organic” ingredients. Very few hair care companies can say that every one of their products meet 100% of all vegan requirements. Even fewer can claim that their entire hair care line is free of alcohol, paraben, sulfates and cruelty to animals, and that they work beautifully, too. YAROK can say all of the above .

I tried the Feed Your Volume shampoo and conditioner, leave-in conditioner spray and hair spray. As soon as you open the shampoo and conditioner the fresh, eucalyptus/lemony scent hits you (it’s the lemon balm in action). They both contain aromatic blends of organic and all natural herbs, flowers, vitamins, minerals and essential oils. The leave in conditioner helps prevent damage from heat styling (blow drying, flat/curling irons), and finally, the hair spray (which also smells lemony fresh) locks in hold while being super light, i.e. you can brush or comb through it with no issue for a mid-afternoon tress touch-up. The verdict: for fresh luscious locks without harsh dangerous chemicals, YAROK is for you.

YAROK products at Green Envy Eco-Boutique on Franklin Street range from $12-$27 and are also available at Green Envy online by CLICKING HERE.
