Oh goodness, my hair is silky soft today. I did it, I quit the no ‘poo. It was such a relief this morning to see my hair go back to it’s pre no ‘poo state. No more waxy, weird feeling hair. Yes to Carrots is paraben free so that is a step in the right direction. It smells delicious (it’s a light, clean smell) and it is fairly inexpensive when compared to the range of hair products available, around $8 per bottle.
The downside: I was in a hurry when I grabbed the shampoo and condition and didn’t fully read the ingredients on the back. Sadly, it contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Propylene Glycol (a derivative from natural gas). Neither are considered toxic, they’re just derived from oil. I believe we should get away from being dependent on oil in all of our products.
But overall, I really like the new shampoo and conditioner. Jason used it this morning and he liked it too! I think we’ll finish these bottles up and then I might switch to the J|A|S|O|N line of products – they’re really inexpensive and look like they are paraben and SLS free.
Update: I just checked out their website and it looks like they’re rolling out new ingredients for the Yes to Carrots line that does not include SLS or Propylene Glycol. Good stuff. Also, something else to be looking for in your beauty/health products, Tricolsan . . . scary.
