We love October. During this month we get to celebrate some truly honorable things: pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween and, our favorite, breast cancer awareness (BCA). We love that there is an entire month dedicated to the fight against this issue that affects hundreds of thousands of people each year. We decided to honor five brands who are joining the fight against breast cancer via proceed donations and BCA-specific products. Check them out!
1. Pureology Pure Volume Breast Cancer Awareness Kit and Colour Fanatic. The three-item collection includes the essentials needed for full, voluminous hair: Pure Volume Shampoo, Condition and Instant Levitation Mist. The brand’s Colour Fanatic spray provides protection against color fading.
