I know it's been FOREVER since my last post, especially with school just starting and having to find a way to balance my work/blog schedule. BUT I'm back and I'm doing better! As you guys know, I recently moved into my apartment about a month ago. My commute to my job and school is about 45 minutes to an hour away (depending on traffic!). So I'm always on-the-go! I just wanted to share something that has reaaalllyyyy helped me get through these past few weeks.
Green & Gorgeous Organics dry shampoo... what would I do without you?! On days that my hair is looking greasy and flat but I don't have the time to wash or style it, I just apply their dry shampoo and massage it into my scalp.. maybe do a couple hair flips & voila! A clean, refreshing look.
Not only are they perfect for unwashed hair days, they're also certified organic! What I love most about Green & Gorgeous Organics is the fact that they're free of parabens, sulfates and perfume. Their products are also talc-free and vegan!
Before I discovered G&G, I was using Batiste Dry Shampoo. Here's a list of their TOXIC ingredients below:
Ingredients: Butane, Isobutane, Oryza Sativa, (Rice) Starch, Propane, Alcohol Denat, Parfum (Fragrance), Coumarin, Eugenol, Limonene, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Linalool, Distearyldimonuim Chloride
First things first, stick to the saying "If you can't pronounce it, don't use it." VERY TRUE. Good thing there's the internet and this girl has done her research!
Butane: A flammable hydrocarbon gas of the alkane series, present in petroleum and natural gas. It is used in bottled form as a fuel.
Isobutane: Some portable camp stoves use mixture of isobutane with propane. Used as a feedstock in the petrochemical industy, very hazardous.
Alcohol Denat: Denatured alcohol or methylated spirits is ethanol that has additives to make it poisonous, extremely bad tasting, foul-smelling and nauseating, to discourage recreational consumption. Denatured alcohol is used as a solvent and as fuel for spirit burners and camping stoves.
Eugenol, Limonene and linalool are fragrances as well.
These are just a few things to keep in mind before using Batiste or any drug store products, as they can be very harmful for you in the long run. Moving on to bigger and better things.. below are the Green & Gorgeous Organics products that I am currently loving!
Lavender & Bergamot suitable for all hair colors
Grapefruit & Sweet Orange suitable for all hair colors
Organic Dry Shampoo suitable for midnight dark hair
Ingredients: Organic Arrowroot Powder, Organic Brown Rice Powder, Organic Horsetail (Shavegrass) Powder, White Clay, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Essential Oils
I always have one in my purse for when I'm traveling, commuting, sleep-overs.. whatever it may be. I can't go anywhere without it! Be sure to check out Green & Gorgeous Organics! Their travel size mini dry shampoos are to die for.
Thanks for reading loves & have a great hair day!
