Vegetarianism? Tough. Vegetarianism for your hair? Suddenly easy thanks to R+Co, a truly innovative line of natural hair products now available exclusively at J S D in the Back Bay.
The collection is the result of a first-time partnership between stylist superstars Howard McLaren, Thom Priano and Garren, who sought products that would encourage style experimentation. J S D owner Jeffrey Dauksevich can't help but gush when describing the results: "It is the first line truly born out of collaboration." And as mentioned, ethical concerns are front and center: the entire lineup is paraben-free, cruelty-free, vegetarian and color-safe.
J S D is carrying all 23 products, from shampoos to mousses to pomades. Dauksevich's favorite? The Park Ave Blow Out Balm. "This is probably the most perfect blowout cream I've used. It feels luxe, distributes evenly through the hair with ease, and delivers a gorgeous, flexible, sexy finish to your blowout." He had us at "perfect."
