Killing Me Softly with... Shampoo?
I am one of those people who wander aimlessly from shampoo to shampoo, always searching for the perfect blend that leaves my hair lustrous and manageable. But what I didn’t realize was the reason I may not have liked quite a few of those products was they contained toxins.
I have long had problems with my hair feeling lifeless and my scalp itchy after a shampoo. I just attributed it to the fact that I have always had somewhat dry skin. For this reason I seldom wash my hair more than twice a week.
Last week while I was wasting time waiting for my knives to be sharpened, I walked into a chic hair salon in Tysons Galleria and bought Aveda shampoo and conditioner recommended by a stylist. The bottles were attractive and it smelled nice enough to justify the cost.
But after washing my hair, I could scarcely get a comb through it and it felt robbed of all nutrients. Not such a good showing for salon hair products.
A few days later while shopping at MOM’s Organic Market, I saw an array of natural products and decided to cast my luck with Desert Essence Green Apple and Ginger shampoo and conditioner.
Today my hair feels totally different and it looks 1000 times better as well. Who ever heard of Desert Essence anything? I’m beginning to think brands mean nothing when it comes to shampoo. It’s all about ingredients.
