Yeaaah, I try and steer clear of icky chemicals in my hurr, because they can leach into dreadlocks and cause all kinds of icky problems, like dread rot and scalp fungus! Gads! I’ve been looking into going ‘poo free for a while now, and it’s one of the better things I could have done for my hair. It’s so much happier than it was a year ago!
I try and avoid nasty toiletries. I wash mysElf with a nice chunk of handmade soap from Lush and reuseable shower scrub mittens! :D
You can get amazing cheap herbal toothpaste from Coles/Woolies that is certified vegan :D
I wash my clothes with Earth Choice detergent- it’s an organic, cruelty free, biodegradeable brand that is readily available from most supermarkets- they make great cleaning products that don’t hurt the environment and I can’t sing their praises enough. I WOULD like to cut down on my use of it, so I am looking to invest in some washing balls that will eliminate my need for detergents eventually :D
I am so glad to hear from other eco warriors! I love Mother Nature, and I love the planet I’m lucky enough to live on, so I’m going to do my best to leave a minimal footprint :D
OH! I will be sure to post a recipe for those cookies- they are SO delish! Stay tuned- there’s also going to be a post for Salted Chocolate shortbread! Nom nom nom! ♥
