Yarok Feed Your Roots Mousse is the subject of today’s quickie post. We’re talking about mousse of all things! Does anybody use it anymore? It seems really nineties, right? I like using mousse because it’s light-weight and not fussy. I have long, fairly straight, layered hair. It’s pretty full, but the top can get kind of weighed down. I use a little bit of mousse in the front section of my hair before blow drying for a little bit of lift. I don’t want to see or feel the product–just soft, full hair. Having finally finished a can recently (it took about a year to finish it!), I decided to try a green brand: Yarok Feed Your Roots Volume Enhancing Mousse (8 oz., $26.40). I am really glad that I got this stuff. I’ll get into the ingredients and all that, but let me start by saying this works better than the other salon brand I was using.
Here is what’s in it: Distilled vitamin enhanced aqua (water), non-GMO corn or rice extract, organic vegetable glycerol, organic herbal extracts of: Ribes nigrum (black currant) extract, Beta vulgaris (beet root) extract, Kham thai & Vaccinium myrtillus (blueberry); natural plant sourced vitmains B1, B2, B3 & C; organic Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, plant sourced kosher vegan Xanthan gum & Potassium sorbate; organic African black soap, Vitamin A, essential oils of: Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) & Lisea cubeba (may chang)
Here is how they describe their approach: Each YAROK formula is a powerful blend of organic and all-natural botanicals that are consciously sourced and responsibly harvested. YAROK uses primarily “certified organic” ingredients. Very few hair care companies can say that every one of their products meet 100% of all vegan requirements. Even fewer can claim that their entire hair care line is free of alcohol, paraben, sulfates and cruelty to animals, and that they work beautifully, too. Yarok can say all of the above.
I co-sign the above statement. This works very well for me. I get bouncy, full hair without any ick factor texture or ingredient-wise. I also love the packaging. You depress a pump to get the product out. One pump dispenses a small amount, so there isn’t any waste. The traditional dispenser on the mousse products I was using always sprayed out more than I needed. I am really looking forward to trying more products in this line.
