Toddlers all over the interweb have been emailing Cooper about his daily beauty habits.
Clearly, his luscious locks have really caused some major daycare rivalry. So even though he wishes to keep this a secret, I decided to share it with all you parents, who want to cut back on your child’s chemical intake, while he is sleeping.
Conditioner: Rinse with tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with warm water and immediately rinse out. I do this as I am getting him out of the tub so he is not sitting in vinegar.
Soap: I am trying Shea Moisture that I got in the mail from Influenster. It smells good and it doesn’t seem to have many nasty ingredients. I am sure there are better options.
I am only “shampooing” Cooper’s hair a couple times a week and happy I am taking many chemicals out of his daily routine. You might want to too, especially if any of you have seen this article. If not please read.
Remember, a three year pledge is not today, and these chemicals NEVER should have been in the products in the first place. Protect your child and throw out conventional baby products, there is no reason not to.
Baking soda and vinegar are less expensive than shampoo and do a great job at cleaning the hair. Especially, if you have a boy with short hair, grease really isn’t a problem.
I am hoping to switch over myself around Christmas vacation. It takes about two weeks to detox from regular shampoos and for your body to regulate itself to stop being so oily. I really don’t want to be made fun of by 12 year old’s for greasy hair.
**Note: I do not think for certain that these chemicals will definitely cause cancer. Many people do fine with them their entire lives. However, why not tip the odds in your favor and look good while doing it.
