Ready for some real honesty? I pick up hair ties off the ground. Yep... Officially grossed out? You're not the only one who has secretly (or not so secretly) been disgusted with me! You think of where that hair tie could have been and all you see are creepy lice, bacteria, and bodily fluids. I won't deny that picking up something off of the ground may come with risks, but let me lay out for you why used hair ties aren't so bad. The benefits of picking up hair ties are primari
Your zero waste hair care routine is something that can take time to figure out. If you've been following me long enough, you've realized that I've tried a variety of products and plundered my way through experiments to see what my hair can handle. Unfortunately, I have really greasy hair and most of the bulk shampoos, DIY remedies, and shampoo bars haven't really done the trick (or have stopped working after a little while).

Our hair, on average, grows six inches ever year. That means, depending on how often you cut it, you have a lot of hair to take care of! My hair has always been thick and straight, but strangely prone to tangling. When I gave up using disposable products, I needed to develop a zero waste hair care routine that would keep my hair happy and the landfill empty.

Let's start off by confronting all of your fears that DIY recipes made at home just don't work - FALSE. They do. I think I've made my point with the toothpaste, deodorant, toners, etc. that I have posted about and personally tried myself. But in case you are still doubting that this recipe will work, let me assure you, it does. No tricks. No lies. It works.
