Now that the word “pouf” has joined our everyday lexicon (thank you, Jersey Shore), the idea of bigger, higher hair is on everyone’s brains—including those of us in the fashion set. We’d never resort to Bumpits (it’s really the name that bothers us the most), but we have been on a bit of a volume quest lately, and seeing as how we’ve been making a concerted effort to green our bathroom as much as possible for Earth Month and beyond, we’re currently test-driving Jonathan Product’s new 100 percent vegan Infinite Volume collection. The three-piece line includes a sulfate-free shampoo, lightweight conditioner, and a sulfate-free thickening foam—all of which are formulated with a proprietary expansion nanotechnology, which is a fancy way of saying they contain biopolymers and natural oils that have an ability to quickly penetrate and plump the hair shaft. Each product boasts its own blend of fragrant botanical essences as well, making for a lovely aromatic experience every time you use them. As for the results, they’re good. Our hair is definitely way less flat, and perhaps more importantly, it looks generally well nourished and shiny. The range doesn’t seem to have the capacity to create, say, the “Snooki,” but we’re not really going for that anyway.
We’re poised to do a fair bit of traveling over the next few months to keep up with a jet-setting significant other, so www.3floz.com has become one of our favorite Web destinations of late. (Don’t worry, our laptop will be clearing security with us, so Beauty Counter will be going global.) To keep us properly addicted to its revolving cast of miniature, TSA-approved beauty essentials from brands like Jonathan Product, Pangea Organics, and Dr. Hauschka, site creators Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz have recently added customized kits to their offerings. The six collections include standouts like the Urban Traveler, a set of face towelettes, sanitizers, a mini body lotion, and a lip balm; the Gym Kit, which boasts a dry shampoo, a refreshing mint-scented body wash, and an herbal deodorant; and Duff’s own picks like Philip B Avocado & Peppermint Shampoo and Lightweight Conditioner, Ole Henriksen’s Walnut Scrub (exfoliating is a must to boost skin cell renewal while you’re on the move), and Dr. Hauschka lip balm, an all-natural in-flight savior. Look out for an After Sun and Sun kit as well, which launch in two weeks—just in time for Coachella and the beginning of the summer festival season.
File this under ideas you’ve had but never acted on. The totally genius concept of a stand-alone store devoted to your favorite, TSA-friendly beauty products will finally become a reality when Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz launch 3floz.com this week. As suggested by its URL name, the site only carries products that are 3.4 oz or smaller from an assortment of 30 brands that offer quality skincare basics. (Makeup and fragrance will reportedly be added to the list of offerings down the line.) Choose from Dr. Hauschka face creams, Jonathan Product shampoo and conditioners, and a host of body salves from Pangea Organics to properly primp out your next air travel experience. Even if you’re not taking to the skies anytime soon, the smaller bottles (and smaller price tags) offer a chance to try certain brands you’ve always been curious about, but maybe not curious enough to shell out for the full size.

Some good news for the oily-haired among you who have relegated yourselves to an exclusively eco-friendly beauty regimen. Jonathan Product’s popular Green Rootine collection has added new dry shampoos to its line of 100 percent vegan formulas free of chemicals, sulfates, and parabens. Available in two shades—Light for blond hair and Dark for brown, black, or red—and with ingredients like talc and aluminum hydroxide to absorb oil, dirt, and product build-up on the scalp while simultaneously creating volume at the root, you can refresh your blow-out or go longer in between showers, if you so choose. The product’s real point of difference, as far as I’m concerned, though, is its brush-on delivery system. As someone who has struggled with aerosol versions of similar products in the past (and who may or may not have some control issues), being able to dispense just the right amount of powder and spot-treat exactly where I want is a huge plus. All of that all-natural business is just an added bonus.
The switchover to organic, locally grown produce, coiled energy-saving lightbulbs, and a Prius (or souped-up racing bike) probably hasn’t been too much of a shock to your system. But the upheaval going green has likely caused to your beauty regimen is another story altogether. Enter Jonathan Product. In a bit of clever copywriting, the company’s new Green Rootine gets to the “root” of the problem, making it easy to stay true to your planet-saving ways without sacrificing healthy, shiny hair. Boasting a superior clarifying ability in an all-natural, 100 percent vegan formula free of chemicals, sulfates, and parabens, the collection’s shampoo, conditioner, and silkening crème rely on coconut, jojoba, and rosemary extract as well as olive, orange, and avocado oils to rid the scalp of impurities without leaving hair brittle. There’s a touch of spearmint oil in the mix, too, for that “its really working” tingle that even the crunchiest product junkies miss from their favorite synthetic offerings.
