– In collaboration with Klorane

I’ve always loved nature and plants in my life. Gardens, trees and the great outdoors that show so much wisdom in the way that they are still, content and just be. I feel like there is a lot to learn from our natural environment, and I’m at my happiest when I’m exploring outdoors, where there is no building in sight but instead endless rows of trees, water or blue skies. Standing in secluded places like Hokitika Gorge and Mt Cook National Park, where we as humans, are so insignificantly small compared to the vast beauty of what around us. 

It’s my admiration for the great outdoors that makes me love having plants at home and dreaming of a luscious garden out back. It makes me feel like I’m surrounded by nature, wherever I go. So much so that I started a second Instagram account @leafkeeper to document these things! And it’s these sorts of feelings that inspire my love for creating, with so many of my flower crowns and accessories drawing inspiration this world. Its beauty is so often used for inspiration, as well as in the products we create. 

Which is why I love partnering with Klorane, a brand that really embraces nature in their product and at the same time, taking care of their beautiful botanical origins. The Klorane Botanical Foundation have planted more than 100,000 trees, educated more than half a million children about plants and established concrete initiatives in 22 countries. I love how the team at Klorane is so dedicated to taking care of nature, by preserving its resources, promoting organic farming and having manufacturing facilities that converts plant waste to energy.

As part of their #SummerSaviour campaign, I’m sharing one of my fave products by Klorane. It’s the Klorane Mask with Mango Butter, which is made especially for people with dry hair like me. It’s so rich and nourishing and helps keep my hair tangle-free and easy to brush. I use this in the shower as a 5 min leave-in treatment in place of my conditioner once a week, but it also doubles as a deep treatment – leave on for 20 mins, wrap in a towel or shower cap, then rinse. Best yet, it smells delicious like mango with its high mango butter content. Try it out for yourself, it’s a beautiful hair pampering product and a perfect little gift for a friend in your life :)
