ewww those sulfates.

sulfate free shampoos. i know you're probably thinking how boring! but no no no! it's interesting. i have thick wavy hair which doesn't like many shampoos. either they make my hair TOO dry or don't clean it enough. i used to keep 3 different shampoos on hand to try to trick my hair into submission.
ages ago, a former hairstylist of mine used enjoy products on my stubborn locks. i was amazed! no way! i was fooled into believing that this could only be done at the salon. my hair rarely ever looks salon hot.
i pushed it to the back of my mind, and kept on using boring old shampoo. sodium laureth sulfate and other sulfates that are in shampoos and body washes can also be found in household cleaning products. why would i want to use a cleanser for both my hair and my windows?! yeah, i know. gross. and scary!
i've used several sulfate free shampoos since then, but my favorite is enjoy. it is a little expensive ($50 for both shampoo and conditioner), but the sulfate free organix line can be purchased at target/walmart ($10-12 for shampoo and conditioner). i used the coconut which works like a dream, but i decided to switch it up.
now i need to find a good organic body wash!
