It has been almost a year since I gave up shampoo. After I watched the movie Chemirical (http://www.chemicalnation.com/content/) the thought of all the chemicals in our house made me really think. I started making some changes to my everyday life. One change was washing my hair with baking soda. Here’s a good blog post that explains all about how shampoo as we know it was created and what no-pooin’ is http://www.anderra.co.uk/blog/no-poo-no-more-shampoo/.Yes there were times that I used shampoo. Vacations to Las Vegas, with concerns about what airport security would think of a container of white powder, warranted some of those times.
Last week I had my hair washed and blown out after my bangs got foiled at the local hair college. My hair felt and looked great. It gave me a lot to think about. Maybe it’s time I switched back to shampoo.
I think that I will buy some Biolage shampoo. They have gone sulphate free, respect the environment and are a professional brand. Their bottles are recyclable, it’s very concentrated and I might buy it in liters to make it a little more carbon friendly. Maybe one day I’ll go crazy and try some Aveda shampoo. They have pretty good practices too.
All I know is that my hair is very colored and needs some tlc. Still plan to no-poo with baking soda every once in a while. I tried at least.
