I read a few books recently that dropped some serious knowledge on my ass about all the chemicals in our health and beauty products. Yuck. Slowly but surely, I’ve been making the switch. I’ve had great success with some products (bars of soap!) and am still waiting for success with others (deodorant – ugh!). One thing I had to search far and wide for was organic shampoo. Actually, that’s not true. There are all kinds of natural shampoo out there, I just wanted one that cleaned my hair. Go figure.
What I found was that organic/all-natural shampoos usually have one of two problems: they don’t clean or they don’t lather. For the ones that don’t lather, I would wind up using double the amount I normally did just to get my hair clean. Consider that a shampoo FAIL. I just kept shopping and Matt just kept seeing half-used bottles of shampoo pile up in our linen closet. That is until I found Kiss My Face shampoo. Praise Jesus! (And with his long, luscious locks and probable aversion to chemicals, he would probably love this too.)
The first one I tried was the Whenever Shampoo which bills itself as good for all hair types. That’s not entirely true. If you have dry hair, you should buy the Miss Treated Shampoo because the Whenever is a little drying. For people with oily or normal hair, either is fine. It smells nice, it cleans like nobody’s business, and it lathers!!
I used the matching conditioner at first and it was fine, but not terribly moisturizing so I wound up switching to Nature’s Gate Tea Tree Calming Conditioner. I bought both of them at Whole Foods but you can get them in the organic section of some Stop and Shops and all the over the internet.
I’ll continue to share healthier beauty products in coming days/weeks, but for now, go wash your hair already!
