We have a bottle of shampoo in the bathroom given to us by a friend who refuses to believe we prefer to wash our hair with baking soda. As a novelty (as I haven’t used shampoo for 2 years) I lathered up. How slimy and strange the once familiar foam felt and how overpowering seemed the perfume…. actually rather unpleasant.
I looked on the plastic bottle to read what I had actually just put on my hair: aqua.sodium laureth sulphate.PEG7 glycerol cocoate.sodium chloride. Disodium cocoamphodiacetate.glycol distearate.sodium benzoate. Benzopenone-4.laureth-4.laureth-2. Polyquaterium-10.acid violet43….. plus about 10 more equally unfamiliar ingredients. And my friend thought she was doing me a favour getting me to put that on my hair and skin! I think in future I will just stick to Baking Soda – at least I know what is in that.
