I'm pretty sure I've always been a hippie at heart. There I was, growing up on a farm in a small town. And now here I am, a university student staying in LA for the summer for an internship with one of the top casting companies in LA. So amazing how far I have come, and so amazing how much farther I plan on going.
A little about me and why I believe I'm a hippie at heart. For one, I do not kill flies, spiders, bugs, ants, cockroaches (they frighten me), or ant hills. If they are just minding their own business and not bothering me, then whatever. Let them live.
I am mostly vegetarian with my occasional slip up of unread ingredients in products from names I can't pronounce (which I am trying to be more careful about) and the occasional bite of sushi (yum. sorry.)
Here I am, using No-Poo and loving it. And then I get on pinterest and find research that no-poo isn't that great for your scalps pH levels. So I'm going to try a new recipe using coconut oil and pure aloe vera gel for shampoo and continue using the apple cider vinegar to balance pH and condition the ends.
And another thing...
I've always known that trans fat and aluminum lead to cancer and increases the risk of alzheimer's disease. Guess what's in my deodorant? I don't use just any deodorant. I use either dove or secret's clinical strength. The $12 per 4 or 5 oz of pretty much aluminum to stop the anti-perspiring. But I don't have an sweat problem. I can't find a product that I like that stops the odor. Until this same website! The ultimate hippie woman! I would pretty much summarize what she said, but here's her link http://thankyourbody.com/homemade-deodorant/
So this week I will buy the products, maybe even tonight if my boyfriend gets back in time!
I'm transforming, but not really. I believe everyone needs to know what they are putting into their bodies. Do your research and beat cancer to the ground! You are what you eat, and you are what you put onto your body.
