Hello friends! I never thought the day would come when my hair would become a topic for discussion but the day has now arrived. Of late, I have noticed that I have been losing quite a bit of hair. I know that the hair shaft tends to thin with age but I think that stress may be playing a large part as well. Monsieur is a baldy and soon I think I will end up being his twin. I had been using Jason Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner for a while but I suspect that they have changed their formula as the last bottles I bought smelled absolutely vile. So I thought now was as good a time as any to overhaul my hair care routine. I searched around and ended up getting Desert Essence Organics Fragrance Free Shampoo.
I really like the fact that it is fragrance free as I am not fond of heavily scented body care products. It is 100% vegan/wheat & gluten free and doesn't contain any parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, phthalates, artificial fragrances or colors, silicones, EDTA, glycol or petroleum based ingredients. And most importantly, to me anyway, it is cruelty free. There is a fragrance free conditioner but I have found that the shampoo is so mild that I am going to try skipping the conditioner. I do find that organic products tend to be a bit on the pricy side so I thought that, if I can skip the conditioner, the cost of the shampoo will be somewhat mitigated. Also, with one less product to buy, it means that my hair care routine is now much more simple. There was a time when I used a plethora of hair grooming products, but I found that none of them really delivered the magical results promised and I grew tired of the constant hit to my wallet. Plus with stress levels at maximum, I just wanted a straightforward routine without a lot of fuss. If you have any recommendations on shampoos, please let me know! I have been researching vitamins and supplements to help my fast diminishing strands so if you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know as well! Of course, I can't leave a blog post, even if it is on hair care, without a quick snapshot of something vintage.
I was very pleased to thrift this vintage gilt mirror tray. The gold is still lustrous and the gilded edge really pretty. I have always had a fascination with vanity tables and all the lovely things associated with them although I have never had the room to have one. However, a mirror tray on a dresser has the same impact and is a good compromise. On it, I have a vintage wooden brush. I have heard that regular brushing helps to restore the hair's vitality. I also use a wide toothed comb for sorting out tangles and knots. So that's it, my simplified hair care routine. Do you have a hair care routine?
