Clean Beauty Swap II : Switching to Safer Haircare Options

Last week I shared all the clean skincare swaps I made in this post here. And as promised, I am back with all the clean haircare swaps I have made in my routine. The haircare swap has been fairly easier than the skincare swap since I have a fairly minimalist routine and don’t use many products or heat style them.

For the past week, the rains have created a havoc in Mumbai by pouring non-stop.
