In the shower one day when my husband and I first started dating he told me he didn’t wash his hair “It’s not good to strip it of its natural oils” he told me over my sud covered tresses.  I rolled my eyes and began washing the soap from my hair and in a rather condescending manor told him that he needed to start washing his hair more often, and that the only reason he was saying that was to cover up that he was a boy who lived with three other boys and didn’t like showering let alone using soap once in the shower.

A little over two years later I am eating every word…

I was inspired by Genevieve over at Uniquely Normal Mom and her post about her 2 Year Anniversary of not using shampoo, or No Poo-iversary as she so cleverly calls it.

Could it really be possible that someone could unconventionally wash there hair once a week and have softer, healthier, more volumized hair? Could that really be? Have the shampoo companies lied to me all these years telling me how wonderful their products are for my hair, and how I “need” them to have wonderful, shiny, beautiful hair?

Most Likely.

So as of today I am going No-Poo, which means this:

I will not shampoo or condition my hair.

Instead I will use baking soda, vinegar and a little lemon or lavender essential oils once a week and nothing else… except water of course!

So today I mixed 1 tablespoon of baking soda with about 1cup of water and worked it through my shower wet hair and rinsed. Then I mixed 1 tablespoon of vinegar with about a cup of water and a drop or two of essential oils and worked that through my hair, leaving it in while I lathered up my body and then rinsing my hair when I was done, and I must say…

My hair feels WONDERFUL! So soft and clean, I know that I have greasy days ahead of me as my hair and scalp work into their natural rhythm but my goodness, if you’re not going to go No-Poo at least try washing your hair with baking soda and vinegar* because it’s just Divine!

Plus as an added bonus it goes in the Environmentally Responsible category and rids my home of one more nature depleting chemical!

Thanks so much to Genevieve for turning me on to No-Poo!

*Using diluted vinegar will not cause your hair to smell like vinegar, but putting strait vinegar on your hair like I accidentally did the firs time will. Just a heads up.

Giraffe Stuffys in my Etsy Shop

I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with creating something out of my own mind. As a young child I was always making things out of bits of fabric and pieces of nature. Growing up in the country far from power lines and the conveniences of city plumbing I was always encouraged to use my creativity and imagination for entertainment, not to mention fortunate enough to have a mother with an endless surplus of craft supplies.

When I grew up I stopped sewing and creating for a lot of years, it had become to frustrating with the short patience I’d developed through teen hood, but when I got pregnant that all changed(for the most part). I suddenly had the patience to create patterns and replace seams. Small imperfections became unimportant and I no longer cared so much for the little things that no one could notice but me.

This week I redesigned a pattern I’d made previously and created a set of Ribbon Giraffes in Orange and Red. They are so soft and lovable, not to mention they stand all on their own. It’s definitely been hard to come to terms with the idea of parting with these little guys, but it is their destiny to be loved and adored by an active imagination on a safari through the African planes!

Take a moment and check out my shop on Etsy. Look around and be sure to let me know what you think!

I hope my life is never without love… Nothing can be felt without Passion… To be Inspired is to understand the reason for living… Follow your Heart… Make Mistakes… Make lots and lots of Mistakes… Remember the things you Love, and do them… Be completely Consumed by a feeling… Give in… There is nothing in your life that you are meant to have that wont come with time… Don’t try so hard to make good things happen… Good things happen on their own… And when you find that one person that makes your world go round, That one person you can’t imagine your life without… Tell them you love them… Tell them you love them every day… Because you’re meant to be happy… And happiness is knowing what you have today… and being grateful you have it…
