Earthpaste – My Natural Toothpaste

Image

I was a little shocked when I took a closer look at our toothpastes. My Elmex toothpaste contains the following ingredients: Aqua, Water, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Olaflur, Titanium Dioxide, Saccharin, Aroma.

I didn’t like the fluoride part and neighter did I appreciate the word “aroma”. I was even more worried when I discovered that other toothpastes lying around in our bathroom, contain PEG and sulfate. Continue reading

Why I Quitted Washing My Hair Without Shampoo

As I’ve told you twice in old posts (reasons and routine > click on the links below), from 6. January until 2. March 2014 I didn’t use any shampoo on my hair.

I gave up shampoo for two months. It was a very greasy period for my hair and neighter did it feel good nor did it look nice. I thought it would just be the transition period.

But my flakiness didn’t go away. As job interviews approached, I knew that I had to stop using no shampoo and try natural shampoo instead. I wouldn’t have felt comfortable in that state, even if I used dry shampoo and braided my hair.

Washing My Hair Without Shampoo for The First Time

I have had dandruff since I remember washing my hair.

The problem has increased in the last two months or so. I have switched to Lush’s “Fair trade honey shampoo” in the impression that it was a clean choice. It claims to be “preservative free” and therefor, I thought it to be wonderful. I didn’t look close, though. It contains a bunch of  really dirty ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Sulfates) and Cocamide DEA. Those have both proven to be carcinogenes.

Lush Fair Trade Honey Shampoo Review 004

I have wondered why I recently struggled with far more dandruff than before. Is it the radiators that really dry out your roots? Or is my dandruff actually a rash, the consequence of the harsh ingredients of my shampoo? Continue reading
