I must admit, shopping is one of my favorite past times. I find enjoyment in searching for great additions for my home, wardrobe, and of course my curls. You can find me in the hair care aisles for hours. Well, not exactly hours but you get the point. There is a great satisfaction that comes with finding a product that does amazing things for your curls and even more satisfaction when I know that the brand is involved in philanthropy. It gives even more incentive to support the brand. Check out these brands that engage in great causes.
