I haven’t used shampoo in long enough that it’s no longer a thing. I just dump some baking soda in my hand while showering, add a little water to it, rub it in, rinse and go. I discovered through trial and error that apple cider vinegar was TOO moisterizing (who knew?) so I only use it as a rinse about once a week. And my hair is fine. Looks fine, smells fine, and is blessedly tangle free.
So this weekend we traveled to grandma’s house. I didn’t pack my baking soda (because that seems, well, weird). And when it was shower time I couldn’t find hers, so I used… *shampoo*. And I’m not even ashamed.
I also used regular soap, regular lotion, and (gasp) Secret antiperspirant/deodorant.
And the world didn’t stop turning. It was nice, even, to take a break from worrying about the chemicals in things and just shower with convenience products. A true vacation, if you will.
One other thing grandma’s house has… locks on the bathroom door. I got to take a shower with no children. Specifically no Letty. And once she discovered the locked door she laid on the floor screaming at the injustice. She also pulled the cat’s tail, and got into a fight with Jett when he tried to defend the cat.
I simply turned the water up higher to drown out the noise.
Ahhh. Privacy and shampoo. I should come here more often.
