I will be the first to admit, I did something stupid. Two weeks ago I was at my local drugstore to get girl things. You know what I mean, swabs, cotton balls, pads, razors…chick things. I was in the hair product aisle and obviously had some sort of moment because I ended up buying a huge bottle of shampoo and its matching conditioner.
Don’t get me wrong, they smell awesome. Absolutely awesome. I spent maybe $4 for each 11 oz bottle, and the bottles are pretty! They’re green, there’s shea butter and something else yummy in both products and the whole eye and nose experience was lovely. It got even better when I washed and conditioned my hair. My hair looked and felt and smelled wonderful, I could easily get a comb through it, and the wonderful smell lasted all day!
These things lasted about four days. On day number five I couldn’t stop scratching my scalp for the life of me. I thought at first that it was because I missed a day washing my hair (which as it turned out, I didn’t) because I was in denial, but yep, it turns out my lovely, cheap shampoo and conditioner is full of chemicals my scalp does NOT like.
Needless to say, I learned my lesson. So back to Dr. Bronners Lavender Bar Soap and my 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as a conditioner. What was I thinking?!
