My decline has begun. I finished my shampoo this week. I use Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner. I trialled lots of other natural or organic shampoos before I lucked onto Moo Goo at my local health food store. It’s the first natural shampoo I’ve found that doesn’t either dry out my hair or leave it too oily. As terrible as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is for our skin and hair, it makes hair look sensational (for about 12 hours). Shampoos that have more natural ingredients may be better for us, but they don’t always hit the mark for helping our hair look good.
Although I could find some wily way to get around this situation and continue to buy Moo Goo, I have decided to use this opportunity to work our way through the many bottles of ‘bad’ shampoo we have filling our bathroom cupboards. I see twelve bottles at a glance. There are also several half-finished ‘natural’ shampoos from the aforementioned trials.
So, a bit like in No Impact Man when Colin started taking away his wife’s make up, you might notice I start to look a bit lank and a bit oily. My skin might flare up with a rash again, too. I think if it hits that point I might implement a loop hole. Health?
Fortunately I have not been entirely rash. When BP’s Mum asked what I wanted for my birthday I told her all I wanted was a bottle of Moo Goo shampoo. I only have to wait a month and a half.
I will hastily locate all my hair ties and put off that hair cut for a while.
