ecostore: Healthy hair products I use


Taking care of my health has had many benefits – and one of them is long, thick, strong hair. Just like I pay attention to what I put in my body, I am picky about what I put on my body, too. Many of you have asked me what hair products I use! Today I am sharing the products that I have been using lately.  I’ve been on the hunt for quality chemical-free hair products, because it’s important to me that I use only products that will nourish me holistically. And I’ve finally had success with ecostore!


Why do I love ecostore?

ecostore is a principles-based company. Their products are plant and mineral based. I love that all of their ingredients are from natural and/or renewable resources, are biodegradable and have the lowest hazard rating in terms of health and environmental safety. In fact, if there is any doubt about the safety of an ingredient for people’s health or the environment, ecostore will find a safer alternative. A company that has its’ customers and the earth’s best interest in mind? Incredible!

And this is why: “We think everyone has a right to know exactly what’s in the products they use everyday and whether or not they could be harmful to our health. That’s why we go above and beyond legal requirements by listing every ingredient on our product labels and why you can count on us to deliver on our promise.“


ecostore products are:

  • Healthier for you. Chemical free!
  • Safer for our environment – suitable for your septic tank and water can even be safely re-used on your flowers and lawn!
  • Packaged in the best materials available – made from renewable sugarcane plastic & 100% recyclable
  • Labeled with a full list of ingredients
  • Guaranteed to give excellent results
  • Concentrated to save you money
  • Not tested on animals
  • GE Free


According to research, there are more than 84,000 chemicals being used commercially – with a thousand new chemicals being developed every year. It’s difficult for the law to keep up with and, unfortunately, that’s a big detriment to our health. Some chemicals are being linked to allergies, asthma, hormone disruption and cancer.

ecostore’s response to this? “Your health is a big concern for us and that’s why ecostore scientists evaluate and minimise the impact of our products on people’s health every step of the way, from sourcing raw materials to end use.”

Their passion for natural wellness intrigued me, and I was thrilled to try their product.

ecostore products I am loving personally:

Normal Shampoo – for normal to dry hair, which is what I have. It gently cleans and restores shine without drying out your hair. I have been using it on a daily basis and loving it. It’s also great for your skin! You know that the lather from shampoo also bathes your hands and the rest of your body, so it’s great to use a product that doesn’t strip out the natural oils needed for healthy skin and hair. Plus, the bergamont and orange scent is divine!photo


Dry/damaged conditioner – to protect my colour! I only get highlights once a year, but this product is great for protecting hair from damage. The formula uses a unique blend of ingredients to nourish and protect dry or chemically treated hair, and it helps prevent colour fade.


Volumising conditioner – what I love to use before a night out or a big event.

It’s plant-based and silicone-free, and it’s enriched with Argan and Avocado oils to protect and nourish fine hair while building body and shine.


Anti dandruff conditioner – this conditioner nourishes your hair and is effective against dandruff – all while restoring shine and preventing tangles. Perfect for those who don’t want flakes on their shirt! Nutritionist’s note: Make sure you hydrate yourself to minimize dandruff too. 2 liters of water a day!

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.


Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!


Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!


I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
