According to the movie, Mean Girls, the color pink is only reserved for Wednesdays but, this month we’re wholeheartedly embracing all shades of pink for a very special cause. For those who don’t know, October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness as well as raise funds to fight the disease.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women overall. In fact, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
Whether or not, you or someone you love has been touched by the disease, it’s super easy to give back and make a difference To support the cause, every year haircare brands release pink products and collections for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with a percentage of proceeds being donated to various breast cancer organizations.
Here, discover the products that you can shop this year to support the fight against breast cancer.
