Are you still looking for a natural line of shampoo and conditioner that works better than your usual bottle of shampoo? Look no further! Developed by Big Island stylist Jason Harsin, Hearts & Stars Shampoo and Conditioner is a professional grade product focused on cleaning and strengthening hair naturally, and with style and sass.
Paraben and sulfate free and tested on rock stars, not animals, Hearts & Stars cleans using natural ingredients and then boosts protein to strengthen and repair with hair keratin and hemp oil. The scent is a eucalyptus, tea tree (which tingles!) and sage for a clean and contemporary smell. I personally have thick, wavy hair that is often hair to tame, and it left my hair feeling clean, moisturized and shiny, and I loved the tingly feeling on my scalp!
When Hawaii-based stylist Jason Harsin began his career on the Big Island, he couldn’t find a professional grade shampoo and conditioner that was right for his humidity-battling, beach-going clientele. After searching high and low he decided to take action and create the product his clients needed. Harsin wanted to make a shampoo and conditioner that would work for all hair types operating on the principles of cleaning without drying hair out and adding natural proteins to strengthen and repair hair.
“Everything I tried was either drying clients’ hair out or too oily,” said Harsin. “Hair is 91% protein, and the ocean, sand and sun all strip hair of proteins. You need tons of protein to replace what’s been lost. I just wanted a product that worked.”
After a year of perfecting the formula, Hearts & Stars was born. Hearts & Stars Shampoo and Conditioner contains hair keratin and hemp oil to boost protein levels and replenish damaged hair. And whereas most commercial products use paraben wax, a supplement that causes build-up, and sulfates, a foaming agent linked to cancer, Hearts & Stars proudly contains neither.
Always important in Hawaii, Hearts & Stars is giving back to the community as well. A portion of every bottle sold goes to a local Big Island food bank. Hearts & Stars is tested on rock stars, not animals. It’s available for $20 online at hearts-and-stars.com and in select salons.
