Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that you are buying products from a brand that is also contributing to the community? Here are five natural hair care lines that give back, ranked by price.
SoapBox’s mission is to “empower customers to change the world through everyday, quality purchases.” What I love most about SoapBox is that once you buy the product, SoapBox donates a month’s supply of clean water to a community in need through another partner called Splash. Another cool thing about the brand is they provide a code on the back of the product that will tell you where in the world the water supply will be. Soapbox products are free from parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, and are cruelty free (not tested on animals).

Lush is a well known all organic natural brand that caters to all hair types. Some of my favorite products are Marilyn and Jungle. Marilyn is great for those naturals with blonde colored hair who wanted to enhance their color naturally, while Jungle is a great solid conditioner bar for moisturizing hair and leaving a fruity smell. In addition to Lush’s charity pot products, Lush launched Extend a Hand Of Friendship Fund. The purpose is to donate 100% of the funds to people who fled Syria and settled in North America.
