- Simple Softening with Kitchen Products- Olive oil can be a girl’s best friend in the kitchen, not only for cooking a great meal but also for adding suppleness to your locks. Use room temperature Cold Pressed Organic Olive Oil to feed your hair the best vitamins and nutrients. Take inch partings and apply the oil to your scalp moving through your ends, continue until entire scalp and all hair are thoroughly saturated. Wrap your head in a towel for thirty minutes to trap in the heat while you relax and your hair rejuvenates. Then simply wash out (preferably using a shampoo for oiliness) and see the magic.
- Eggy Miracles- Eggs are nature’s hair cleansers and conditioners. Eggs can provide incredible results for dry or damaged hair. All you have to do is separate the egg white from the yolk, whip the egg whites well, add a tablespoon of water and mix until creamy. Add the yolk and luxuriously massage it into your scalp, leave it on for five minute, take a cleansing breath and rinse. Repeat one more time for amazing moisture and hair revival.
- Avocado Avant Garde- Avocados really do the trick for damaged hair by adding conditioning agents and necessary fats. Grab that overripe banana in the kitchen, an avocado and a few drops of organic olive oil. Mix them all equally and generously, apply and leave on for 20 minutes while you pamper yourself then wash with lukewarm water. Watch your hair transform.
With all the demands on your hair from daily styling, use one of these treatments to rejuvenate your locks and look.Tweet
Three best friends in high school started crocheting beanies to keep their and their friend’s heads warm on snowboarding excursions and walks around town in the winter. A few years later they found themselves starting a company called Krochet Kids that put their crochet skills to good use in African villages to help create sustainable jobs for small communities. Today, they are expanding from Africa to South America and running their crocheters through a program that helps them graduate from working for Krochet Kids and move into running their own local businesses. Totally awesome.

What first drew you to sustainable fashion?
I was first drawn to sustainable fashion as a 5th grader. My family was low income and I was into fashion even then! I wanted IZOD shirts so badly I had my mother sew polo’s for me. I would pay other kids to take the alligator off their old shirts, so I could sew them onto my hand-made ones.
