I’ve had just about every hair color and hair cut that one could have.
Brown to blonde to purple, black and red.
Angled bob, long, pixie and medium length cuts.
We all spend a great deal of time searching for the hairstyle that suits us best.
And I find myself in a conundrum. When I use typical store bought shampoos, conditioners and such my hair becomes limp and lifeless. But when I try some variation of no-poo method my hair can become brittle and unruly.
A happy medium between these two is what I’m in search of.
Since returning home in February I’ve been able to put a bit more life with the baking soda/vinegar combination once a week.
And over the past month I’ve been able to give my hair a little extra nourishment thanks to some natural, organic products by the Innate Life that were sent to me.
[Disclaimer: While yes, these were “sent” to me, I only chose to accept their offer after checking that they were organic, natural and vegan. And can I just say they came at the perfect time].
On a night where I don’t have anywhere I have to go (be seen) the next day or two I will choose between the Scalp Treatment or the Herbal Hair Mask.
First off, these smell absolutely amazing, and therefore really have this calming effect on me while I’m sleeping in them. Both are quite thick and therefore make it easy to spread in my hair without dropping a bunch of product through my fingers.
By the next morning either my scalp or my ends are feeling nice and nourished. I will wash my hair (baking soda/vinegar) and let it air dry. I have found that these are pretty potent and therefore require a second washing later in the day or the following day to get the excess oils out.
And then the other product from them that I’ve been using is the Rose Hair Elixir. Once again, boy does it smell good, and I love to put this on my baby hairs that are growing back in as well as take away some of the frizz and static.
I know I need to find a new cleansing system to replace the baking soda/vinegar, because they’re a bit harsh on my hair as well as not as clarifying as I’d like.
I’ll take any of your suggestions!
I have some soap nuts on their way to me in the mail. They came recommended by one of my 1-on-1 girls, and I’m really excited to try them out. I’m hoping the can continue to give my hair that pumped up life it gets when I don’t use traditional shampoos and conditioners, but at the same time without being as harsh to my hair as the baking soda seems to be.
