Shine & Detangle Conditioning Hair Rinse

Today’s project is a Bee Better for the Shine & Detangle ACV Hair Rinse I shared back in 2013. I had a lot of fun revisiting this one, taking lots of inspiration from the name rather than the original ingredients, and working in lots of what I’ve learned about hair care in the last 6 years. The new rinse is fragrant and conditioning, adding shine and slip to your hair—I really like it! It’s a fun evolution on the original concept, featuring new ingredients and resulting in a much more elegant end product.

Rich Shealoe Butter Cream

This decadent Rich Shealoe Butter Cream is the first project I’m tackling in my Bee Better series; it’s an update of the Homemade Shealoe Butter Cream I shared back in February 2014. The idea was to create my own shealoe butter type product, inspired by the plethora of shea/aloe butters for sale from DIY suppliers. I’d like to thank Rhonda for inspiring me to update this project—she shared some of the changes she’s made to it over the years in the comments section on the 2014 version and they sounded divine! I’ve adopted a couple of her improvements and added a few of mine as well.

Sweetgrass Conditioning Hair Gel Serum

I’ve been having lots of fun with gel-type things recently, and that got me to thinking about hair gels. That led to me wondering why hair gels are almost always focussed on hold. Gels are a great format for delivering mostly hydrous ingredients in an easily steerable manner—we can use them to add lightweight viscosity to products so they aren’t too drooly or runny. So, why not make other hair gel things—like a gelled hair conditioner? A sort of conditioning hair serum in gel form? As you’ve probably guessed, that’s what we’re making today!

Rosé Conditioning Hair Foam

Today we’re creating a fun new hair product—a lightweight Rosé Conditioning Hair Foam! This delicate foam contains some fabulous-for-hair goodies for smoothing and volumizing. It also smells fabulous and comes together in a flash. And did I mention that it’s a hair foam? Cool, eh? Who doesn’t love bubbles?!

Rosé Moisturizing Body Cream

If you love body-butter-esque creams, this one is for you. This Rosé Moisturizing Body Cream has a consistency that makes me want to dollop it on a big slice of pie, or perhaps eat it out of an artisanal waffle cone. It smells fantastic and is loaded with ingredients to hydrate, soothe, and keep skin moisturized for hours. My skin loves it. I can’t vouch for how it tastes, though.

Sweetgrass After Sun Body Mist

With summer in full swing (Happy August long weekend!) a refreshing and simple Sweetgrass After Sun Body Mist sounded like just the thing to add to my skincare arsenal. This lovely mist works to hydrate and soothe skin after sun exposure, or whenever you’re feeling like a bit of extra moisture would do you some good. It’ll also help cool you down on hot days—even more so if you store it in the fridge!
