I've been trying to live a healthier life ever since my mom was diagnosed with cancer, but honestly it is difficult to read every single product label at the store before making a purchase. Also, I'm still learning about which chemicals are potentially "bad" for us.
I have curly hair which will frizz if I don't put some sort of gel or mousse in it. I reached for my mousse this morning and out of curiosity read the ingredient list for the first time: Water, Isobutane, Propane, etc. That made me think, wow...I could fuel a gas grill with this stuff. Really? I'm putting isobutane and propane on my body.
So I did a little looking around the net to see what could be used as a chemical free alternative. I found a site via Pinterest located here http://www.longlocks.com/hair-care-recipes-cookbook-page-two.htm#smooth2 There are several DIY recipes for natural hair care products. I'm going to try the Frizz Control for Curly Hair which is basically just a dab of fresh aloe gel. I'm thinking if I put it in a foamer bottle with a bit of water (if it's too thick), it will foam up similar to what I'm used to with my old propane...I mean mousse. My foamer bottles use air instead of chemicals to make the product foam up. I'll let you know at the end of the day tomorrow if this new DIY trick works for my locks.
