In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, many beauty products are doing their part to support the cause this October. We're highlighting hair products that help your curls look gorgeous and also donate some or all of their proceeds to breast cancer organizations and charities. It’s a win-win situation for all!
GG GATSBY Volumizing Hair Care Line
Created by Jerseylicious reality star, Gayle Giacomo, GG GATSBY will give 10% of its sales to the Young Survivor Coalition charity. This collection includes Raise Volume™ Shampoo, Raise Volume™ Conditioner, Over-The-Top™ Root Lift Spray, Ultimate Lift™ Dry Shampoo Powder and Against Gravity™ Hairspray. All products are sulfate-free, which is ideal for curly girls.
ASICS Hera 2-pack Headbands
ASICS America will donate $75,000 to $100,000 from the sales of items in a special collection to Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women. This organization helps provide assistance to women who have an increased risk for breast cancer, and you can do your part simply by slipping on one of their Hera Headbands. The pink fabric, which is gentle on your curls, wicks sweat away from hair and skin. It also has a silicone gripper to keep the headband still while you move, and a reflective logo so you can be seen.
Streekers in Pink
You can show your wild side and your support for a good cause when you give your strands a temporary burst of color. Streekers in Pink will donate 100% of its proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Coalition to help fund research that aims to end breast cancer by the year 2020. This temporary hair color is applied with a sponge-tip applicator to create streaks of crimson and binds to hair until you decide to shampoo it out.

Osmotics Cosmeceuticals FNS Pink Ribbon Collection
This special edition set will donate 15% of its proceeds to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a group that provides easy-to-understand information on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and connects women affected by the disease with one another. The Osmotics Cosmeceuticals FNS Pink Ribbon Collection contains a revitalizing shampoo, conditioner and nutrient serum all designed to nourish your hair follicles so hair looks thicker and shinier.
Essence Skin-Saving Hair Volumizing Milk Conditioner
This conditioner is super light to the touch, but also super hydrating which helps halt the frizz and detangle your strands. Even better? You can also use it as a skin-softening, moisturizing body wash. It’s free of fragrances, parabens and preservatives and $1 from the purchase of each bottle will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Aquage Finishing Hairspray
This humidity resistant spray helps keeps your hair in place and prevents frizz without leaving your curls stiff or rigid to the touch. Its petite size also makes it easy to toss in your purse and tame hair on the go. For the fifth year in a row, Aquage will give a portion of its proceeds to Komen for the Cure and has already given over $489,000 to date!
