Eco yogini_ eco-shampoo in glass bottles!

Out of all my “eco” changes, the cosmetic-y, beauty stuff has been the most difficult. Learn yoga app It would seem that I really like what all those chemicals did to my hair, eyelashes and face! By far, shampoo and conditioner have been a total eco-adventure.

I used to be an avid Aveda-fan. Yoga poses pictures for beginners I had their shampoo, conditioner, allll their face stuff (cleanser, toner, moisturizer AND exfoliant), body lotion and wash and hair styling products. Jivamukti yoga poses Aveda uses wind power and they push their products as being “natural” and healthy.

Tara stiles yoga stretch I honestly assumed that because it’s implied that they use “pure” and “natural” ingredients that their products would have less synthetic chemicals…

Then I read the ingredients on the back of my shampoo bottle. Yoga poses for neck and shoulder pain Their Color Conserve has a nice purple sticker on the front that says: “Made with Organic Lavender”. Dhyana yoga philadelphia On the back, after we get through the 10 plant extracts (whoa!) we see: ammonium lauryl sulfate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, lauramidopropyl betaine, cinnamidopropyltrimonium chloride (wtf??)… Yoga download mp3 ok the list goes ON. Balance yoga barre norman We have some PEG’s and some parfum’s (i.e. Yoga exercises for weight loss formaldehyde).. Laughing yoga video not so natural.

So, I needed a natural replacement that would keep my hair just as shiny and clean. Yoga exercises for neck I really wasn’t ready for the “no-poo” shampoo of washing with apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Yoga poses downward dog Getting through two weeks of icky hair just makes me cringe. Yoga poses for two easy There must be another alternative.

I started with the obvious- Green Beaver’s shampoo. Charlotte yoga I love their body lotion and wash, why not their shampoo? Well I think I lasted about three days and my hair was so greasy and disgusting that I passed the shampoo along to Andrew and moved on to Giovanni. Bent yoga brighton mi Unfortunately, Giovanni isn’t the “cleanest” (term for chemical-free) shampoo out there and still it wasn’t that wonderful. Yoga for life portland On to… Power yoga videos by shilpa shetty you name it I’ve tried it. North shore yoga beverly ma (ok maybe! I tried a lot let’s just say).

Finally I gave up, I was tired of constantly having crappy hair, so back to Aveda it was (hence having the ingredients handy). Yoga tree richmond hill schedule At least Aveda’s products were made with recycled plastic (although it says right on the bottle that recycling the shampoo bottle is limited…so what am I supposed to do with that?). Yoga butterfly exercise benefits Ideally I wanted something with no or better packaging (i.e. Youtube yoga with adriene day 5 a bar or glass). Yoga stretches for back and neck I tried a few shampoo bars and wasn’t a fan. Bikram yoga near me Even Andrew, who had been the garbage disposal for all my shampoos over the past three years (aww- he’s so cute and supportive of my non-wasteful ways!) hated the shampoo bars. Yoga hatha adalah Also, since I am not a fan of Lush; too much scents, hidden synthetic ingredients, I was stuck.

Until one fateful day my parents were up to visit and I decided to “show” them our local organic grocery store (hehe, I am such a geek!). Sangha yoga studio louisville co While I gave them the “tour” I happened to spot new shampoo GLASS bottles… Isha yoga nj BISH! I had heard of a local hair stylist in Halifax who was making his own shampoo and conditioner. Yoga wimbledon aveda I think perhaps a little “WOO!!!” slipped out, scaring my parents just a tiny bit. Shilpa shetty yoga free download dvd As I oohhed and ahhed over how they were in glass bottles, no synthetic ingredients, made in Halifax, smelled pretty…. Balance yoga atlanta my dad and Andrew slowly inched away.

The hair stylist, Kevan Bish, formerly worked for L’Oreal and was tired of their non-eco production habits (btw, L’Oreal owns Aveda…). Yoga asanas with pictures and names in tamil Five years ago he opened his own salon here in Halifax ( The Swanki Guru…I KNOW) and began making his own shampoo and conditioner. Sivananda yoga vedanta center nyc My friend’s mother who is a hair stylist uses all his products as she recently had breast cancer and decided to completely cut out chemicals from her hair salon.

I emailed him as soon as I got home to see if he did bottle exchanges and to find out if his shampoo was actually bottled here in Halifax as well. Yoga perth australia His response was that yes, he does accept bottle exchanges and that they are made (the bottles I’m assuming?) in Winnipeg but that he was hoping to find a local producer soon. Ashtanga vinyasa yoga video Which I’m assuming his bottles them himself in his lab. Music video yoga class COOL.

I’ve been using this shampoo for about a month now. Restorative yoga poses youtube So far I have lasted four consecutive days before my hair becomes slightly dingy.

Yoga poses for two people After four days I switch and use Aveda for one or two and then immediately go back. My yoga online 2 weeks free BISH smells phenomenal and leaves my hair nice and soft. Bikram yoga dallas groupon I’m wondering if I push it and after a certain time frame my hair will reach that turning point of gross to nice that so many “no-poo” shampoos have… Yoga tips for weight loss in tamil I’m not sure.

I also have been using the conditioner as a shaving lotion and it’s AMAZING. Yoga for life schedule Better than any other lotion I have ever used (method, soap bars, even chemical-creams!). Yoga in tamil app It leaves my legs super smooth. Gentle flow yoga fitness first The shampoo can also be used as a body wash (which I have).
