Sometimes I Feel (or Smell) Like I Am a Salad!
I have been "experimenting" - quite successfully, I might add - with some different products that are more frugal and more healthy for you. Like using olive oil as a moisturizer on my face (I love it!) and rinsing my hair with apple cider vinegar (instead of conditioner). That one, I am not so sure about. Seemed very "staticky" after that one. Will have to try again to see if that is what caused it. I have been trying several different samples of shampoo bars and body bars that are full of herbs. So....it feels like I am a salad!!
All of these natural items are really inexpensive and have been saving me alot of money. Most of them I have been very happy with and don't miss the commercial shampoo, moisturizer, etc. I am happy that I am using very safe products and have been encouraging my family to do the same (some will, some won't:-). My hair has never been cleaner or felt healthier! As soon as I try all the different soap/shampoo bar samples that I have, I will write a review of my thoughts about them. But I can tell you this, my skin feels so clean and is not dry. That is wonderful! Especially since I live in the desert and summer is coming on already!!
I guess feeling like a salad is not a bad thing, just funny! Any other frugal and natural products I should try? Just leave me a comment.
