I have a new favorite green shampoo, and if you know me (and my eternal hunt for the perfect green shampoo), this is big news. The Vermont based minimal green skincare brand, Ursa Major, just added shampoo and condition to their tightly curated selection of products and after one use (I literally just got out of the shower and ran to my computer to log down this review) I am smitten.
