If any of you have made resolutions (New Year’s or otherwise) to become more eco conscious, here are some posts that I have written over the years that you might find helpful:
- How to make your own laundry soap that works like a hot damn and won’t leave you smelling like a chemical shitstorm
- Stop buying shampoo and conditioner! Make your own! I promise you won’t look gross!
- Natural oils as moisturizers
- This list I made for Skinny Scoop about small changes you can make that might make you look crazy but will also SAVE THE PLANET. NBD.
I am a giver. Never forget that.
Hi Madeleine! I am planning to try out your homemade shampoo and conditioner formulas. Just wondering what “paraphernalia” you use to make it up in the bathroom? Am a huge fan of your blog, by the by! My 8-month old son, Edward and I send big birthday squishes to you from England! X
Hi, Vicky! I’m so excited that you’re going to give it a try! As for paraphernalia, I marked the 1 cup line on two glass jars and I keep them in my bathroom, along with a box if baking soda and a bottle of ACV stashed in a cupboard. When it’s shower time I measure out the baking soda and ACV into the jars, then fill with shower water when I’m ready to shampoo.
Please report back after you try it- I’d love to know what you think! Someone recently told me you can use lemon juice instead of ACV, so if the smell bugs you that’s an alternative 🙂
Love to you and your little Edward!
Thank you Madeleine! I’m actually looking forward to this little experiment with great curiosity. Have just ordered the stuff, so will let you know my verdict! Happy New Year to you and your sweet little family! X
Hi Madeleine! Just reporting back on the un-pooing. Well, so far, so good! It’s been two months and my hair feels healthier, and looks shinier. I’ve also been using coconut oil once a week and it’s lovely! Only wish I didn’t live in such a hard water area… Thank you for your blog 🙂 xxx
Oh my gosh, I did a happy dance when I read this! I’m so delighted that you like it too! You are just fabulous for trying it on the first place, and even MORE fabulous for reporting back- I love to see how things work out 🙂 Xo
