No, I am not hocking organic shampoo made with carrot juice and compost from my back yard.
Frankly, I have not tried organic shampoos. yet. baby steps.

Sometimes I am so busy saving this little planet of ours, that some important thing’s get left by the wayside… But today, I am forgetting about the planet and I am busy saving my hair, and yours too. I am so serious about this hair thing, that right now I am eating off of Styrofoam plates, letting water run out of all my taps and throwing plastic into the garbage can while pouring old paint into the street storm drains.
Ok, you know I have done none of this. ::shiver::
But, what I do know: One can not save the planet while having a bad hair day. Have you ever seen a superhero with bad hair? I think NOT!
You know how I love using baking soda for cleaning. I know I posted about this before, but for the life of me can’t find the old posts. I buy baking soda in 12lb bags at costco. I keep it in our bathroom because this is the only thing I have found that cleans the marble shower and grout as well as my
plastic acrylic tub without scratching. So, is it strange when making cookies, that I go into my bathroom with a measuring spoon to get the baking soda? Nahh. Ok, yeah it’s a bit weird. But I am ok with that.
But I have another use for it now. I have to give thanks to my hairdresser for this one.
I have been getting some buildup on my hair this past year. Must be the gel, mouse or shaving cream I put in there to get it to get up and
dance look purty.
This is what I do: While in the shower, when my hair is wet, I get a handful of baking soda and massage it through my hair. It feels weird (thick, rough, cakey) but it really works to get the stuck gunk out/off of my hair follicles. I am all about the follicles. Then I shampoo and condition as usual.
I do this about once a week.
Yes, I have the sheen of a golden retriever now. **who’s a good girl?**
You are welcome.
Has anyone tried organic hair products? I think it would be interesting to wash my hair and have a snack at the same time…don’t you? Multitasking is my 2nd favorite thing to do.
