FREE YOUR MANE
The Buys: Free Your Mane's Restorative Hair Oil ($25) tames frizz with a base of baobab and sweet almond oils; a blend of aloe, sunflower-seed extract, and avocado in the Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo ($16) leaves tresses silky smooth.
The Source: Grown wild in the dry regions of Tambacounda, Senegal, certified organic baobab fruit (a white pulpy crop with a hard shell, high in vitamin C and omega-6) is collected by local farm cooperatives.
Feel-Good Factor: On top of paying the Senegalese farmers a fair-trade price, Free Your Mane donates 7 percent of all profits to fund numerous children's charities in the U.S.
