For almost a year now, I have gone poo-free. To some this seems normal and right, to others very weird!
I did not share anything about it before, because I guess I thought it was a bit weird But now, I love it!!
Why would I do this? Well, honestly after reading all about how toxic our shampoo and conditioner is, and all those other products, I decided I was done with these items. I also changed us over to Dr Bonners soap in the showers (all of them).
Okay, so I was inspired by Simple Mom’s post about this topic. Next, I got a squirt bottle, from walmart, in the housewares section. Next, I bought some more baking soda. I added a tablespoon of baking soda to my squirt bottle and filled with water. This is my shampoo. I squirt it into my wet hair, rub it around and rinse
Then I found an unused spray bottle and poured apple cider vinegar in about half way. I use this in the shower after I wash and rinse, this is my conditioner or rinse of sorts. I spray and then rinse out.
Done. No more touching my hair in the shower.
When I get out, I comb through it, then I get some coconut oil in my hands and then I scrunch it into my hair. I am completely toxin free in the hair and body soap department, and I love it! My hair looks healthier than it has in years, and I feel good about what is going on it.
This was the second step in my life to move more toxin free, after my homemade deodorant, which I still love! I have been using it for about 18 months now, and plan to never go back!! Yeah! For 2012 I am hoping to change over more things to get even more toxin free!
So, join me in 2012 as we get a few more toxins out of our homes and make them a bit safer for everyone.
