Clean Hair

The next time you need to buy a new bottle of shampoo or conditioner for your hair, take a close look at the ingredients used in it first.

You don't need to dump harmful chemicals on your head to have fabulous hair. Where do these nasty chemicals go after they come off your head? Down the drain and into the water supply.

The next time you are due for some new stuff, first check it out for nasties called parabens, which usually begin with the prefix methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl, and isobutyl. These chemicals mess with hormone levels.

Look for natural or organic brands. Some stores have sections that only contain products that are natural or organic.

Check it out!

No Shopping Day

Don't buy anything for an entire day. Make it a regular habit. Maybe even try it for a week!

Product Review - JASON Hair Care

I hope that you have not been born with thick, dry, curly hair, like me. I found a shampoo and conditioner that is helping control my hair that has been even harder to control with all the moisture in the air recently. I found it at Meijer in the Healthy Living section. The manufacturer is JASON Natural Products. The Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner are made with Sea Kelp and Plumeria. There are no Sodiun Lauryl/Laureth sulfates and it is Paraben free. It naturally replenishes moisture to your hair. Love it!

Bringing Lunch

Even though brown paper bags can be recycled, a better choice is to get yourself a lunchbox - insulated with icepacks are nice to keep things cold.
