No more no-poo.

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.

Until tomorrow,

Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses.
