Alright friends and Fangirls, it’s that time of the week again! Time to go through the items in my Project Pan, and give you some updates. Here’s the last update, where, a month in, I realized that I’m pretty good at this panning business, and it feels good as heck to be using up old products and buying fewer new ones. But lets dive right in.
While I’d like to say that I’m not picky about my shampoo and conditioner, I’m aware that saying that would make me a liar. So yes, I am picky; my hair is finicky and I’d like it to just stay out of my face, and look alright. I don’t think it’s the biggest request, but with relatively fine, curly hair, it’s a big request.
For the longest time, I was not a fan of my curls. I hated that they were wild and messy, and it seemed like I could never control them. It was a really difficult thing to hate; I ended up dyeing my hair colors across the spectrum and straightening it daily. Once this destroyed my hair, I shaved my head to make it virgin once more. Though I do dye my hair now (a relatively natural auburn), I’ve grown to love my curls. My hair is wild like my mothers, and as Ashley says, “similar to Rubeus Hagrid’s,” and he’s a good guy, so I don’t mind looking like him. The thing with having wild and curly hair, is that you have to take care of it differently that if you were taking care of straight hair. Of course, each person’s hair has different needs due to what they’re doing with it; mine is curly and dyed, so it needs hydration from both my conditioner and shampoo.
We know how I feel about Lush here, don’t we, Fangirls? I’m obsessed and in love. Their products have me raving like a lunatic with excitement. I just want to use them constantly. One of their products, FUN, makes that possible.
The other day, Ashley, Natalie, Remy, and I all took our first trip into a LUSH store. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve gotten quite attached to the company; they make products in awesome ways without harming animals at all, and it’s all just so damn great. Sadly, my area didn’t have a LUSH shop until about a month ago. It’s an hour from where I live, but was well worth the drive for the lovely items I got.
Hey Fangirls, I thought that today I would talk about how I stopped using shampoos and conditioners in my hair. My hair is fairly long extremely think and curly and the majority of the time I could pass for Rubeus Hagrid. In the last few months before I stopped shampooing I noticed that my hair wasn’t in it’s best condition. It was greasy, frizzy, and just didn’t look good. I started to look online for alternatives for my hair and found an article about using baking soda and apple sider vinegar as a cleaning source.
