I found that my everyday soaps, shampoos and cleaners might be to blame for my dry cracked skin and Dominic's recurring rash.
So I quit. Cold turkey, one week with no soaps, shampoos, deodorant, lotions, lip balms. It's not like I get out of the house much anyway. I still took a shower every other day, just with a wash cloth and hot water. I immediately noticed Dominic's skin clearing up. My husband on the fifth day informed me that I looked beautiful and healthy (he didn't even know about my little experiment). I felt great, my face was less dry and almost glowed, no dry cracked skin, no itchy scalp, not one ingrown hair in my pits, and the blocked duct in my under arm area cleared up on it's own. I did notice some pit stank, which I would need a solution for when I go out, we don't want to offend the masses.
this one. I am
Deodorant acquired, now I feel all sorts of green and thrifty but still a little crunchier than I prefer, so now I needed soap.
Tiki Bar Soap, they were running a 'Try our soaps for free' special so I tried and I couldn't be happier. I was so happy with my soap I made my own little mesh soap keeper so it can stay dry between uses.
Jenny at Conscientious Confusion that the traditional no poo methods don't work well with color treated hair. I am not willing to give up my pretty shade of ginger, so I need to try something else. I already swapped my conditioner for an apple cider vinegar rinse, but I want to continue washing my hair once a week with shampoo. Next time I order from TikiBar I will try their shampoo bar, I already know I love their soap, their philosophy and their ingredients, so I'd love to try their other products.
Next I get to experiment with solutions to the green washed soaps my boys use. That will be fun! What do you use on your little one? Have you ever wondered what was in it?
