IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: OCTOBER · HALLOWEEN EDITION
Spooky season is coming to an end and the holidays are just around the corner. We hope you've all been dedicating time to self-care and that your seasonal transition has been going smoothly. We're here to help with a roundup of our blog content from the past month. Chock full of seasonal health and hair tips, plus some nerdy dissertations on ingredients for you to geek out on while cozying up with a cup of tea (or wine - we won't judge).
First up though, and just in time for Halloween - we have some very scary facts: we are exposed to over 700,000 different toxic chemicals daily and the skin on our scalp is FOUR times more absorbent than the skin on our forearms. Yikes!
Not to fret though - today more than ever before, we have great clean, non-toxic products to choose from, and that includes performance hair care that is safe for you, your family and loved ones, and the environment.
Pro Tip: Simply put - read the ingredient list and stay informed. Awareness is the most important tool that we can pass on to one another.
Hair products list their ingredients from highest to lowest concentration, so we recommend that you read the ingredients carefully and if you come across a word that sounds like it belongs in a science manual, there are now many databases to cross check ingredients and determine their safety. EWG and the Think Dirty App are two popular resources.
NOTHING SCARY HERE!
Needless to say, we don't use ANY toxins or nasties in our products.
While we started out as a clean brand at a time when it was much less common than it is today, we've worked hard to constantly improve to meet the rigorous standards of our community. Our savvy customers, the relentlessness of the amazing bloggers we collaborate with, and the strict curation practices of retail partners like Credo Beauty have informed and inspired every decision we make and demanded total ingredient transparency and integrity from us. We will continue to improve and evolve while prioritizing the safety of our consumer and our environment - with ingredients that nurture the health of your hair from within, of course. After all - it's in our name!

MUST-FOLLOW HAIR & HEALTH TIPS FOR FALL
Pumpkin-spiced-everything has taken over and it's time to make updates to our wardrobes and home decor, but it's also important to make some updates to our hair and skin care routines, as well as our diets and overall health practices. Don't be overwhelmed, though - this handy guide has got you covered from hair to toes!
THE KEY TO HEALTHY GORGEOUS HAIR: AMINO ACIDS
Do you ever wonder why some hair products work (or as our team says “perform”) and some just don’t?
You can use a whole handful of one product on your hair with no impact, while using a very small amount of another product garners results that amaze. The old adage of “what you put into it, is what you get out of it” applies to hair products as well. It’s all in the magic of the ingredients, how they are formulated, and how they are combined that impacts the improvements made to your hair.
Healthy, gorgeous, shiny hair with healthy growth is all about amino acids – perhaps not the most sexy sounding name, but what they can do for your hair is nothing short of spectacular!
SAVE MORE, WASTE LESS
Being economically and environmentally conscious doesn't always go hand in hand, but we've made it our mission to provide EVOLVhers with proven performance products that are not only free of chemicals and full of results, but also embody our "save more, waste less" mantra. To this end, we have value and sustainability driven options for wherever you are on your EVOLVh Journey.
TREAT YOUR HAIR LIKE YOUR SKIN
Even pre-COVID, the concept of "skincare as makeup" started gaining popularity, but it's been even more prevalent lately as many of us are working from home and opting for less makeup and a more low-key beauty routine in general. Instead, self-care and things like masking and other at-home treatments have gained even more popularity in recent months. It's no wonder then that women have been spending more on skincare and learning more about ingredients, how they're sourced, and how they're formulated. Most of us can probably agree that skincare typically has the highest concentration of powerhouse ingredients and delivers them deep down to provide the most benefits. Well... as many of you already know, we believe in treating your hair like your skin and have followed this mantra in a number of ways. Read on for a breakdown of each...
