To Find Something Natural


      It's a new series day! One I'm very excited about, per usual. Can you tell I like creating series? This one is centered around all things natural and eco-friendly. When I had Bailey, I really started thinking about the things I was using, and whether or not they contribute something to Bailey's well being. I know it's become a cliche now, to be conscious of chemicals and health and whatnot, but I actually do care about what I use and have made changes to make our home more "natural". For instance, instead of buying dishwasher pods, I bought a bunch of lemons and white vinegar and made my own dish detergent! It took a little bit (you have to cook the lemons and everything), but it made two jars of natural and chemical-free dish detergent that works just as well, if not better than store bought soap. I digress, I've started this series to share one natural and clean product a month. One of the reasons a lot of people don't use these products or make these changes is because they think they aren't accessible or are hard to find. I would like to change that, so let's take a look at this month's product!

    This month I'm sharing an awesome and non-dish related product: Shea Moisture Baby Head-to-Toe Shampoo and Body Wash. Up until recently, I had been using just plain old Jergen's baby shampoo for Bailey, and while it does it's job, it's not the ideal thing for a baby with dry hair and scalp. When we were at the lake a week ago, we washed Bailey's hair with a shea butter shampoo they had at the house, and her hair was so soft and smooth, but still clean. I thought, wow, looks like we need to make a change. I capitalized on that and found this organic raw shea butter option. I've been using this brands Hibiscus and Coconut body wash, so I was already confident in the product. The shampoo ended up smelling amazing and was very gentle on my little munchkins head. Her hair is silken as we speak because of it. I'm actually going to buy the adult version for myself. Can you say mother-daughter shampoo twins?
