HAIR CARE!!!!

Hair Care!!!!

I know...a bit sparse on the posts....well, I just had to share my fantastic find!!!!
You all know how I have the "sensitive" everything and of course that includes my scalp! So, with that said I have ALWAYS been on the look out for hair care. Through out the years I have been allergic to MANY shampoos and conditioners. Let's just say there was a point that I literally had 5 bottles of shampoos and conditioners sitting on the counter that I couldn't use! ...made my scalp ITCH!!!
So, I started looking at the alternative "natural" and "hand made" route.
In my opinion shampoo bars are a fabulous idea and my guy friends love them! I unfortunately am left with an oily scalp and filmy hair...and I have tried several.
Ever since I moved in to my current apartment I started to have dandruff...the water is TERRIBLE! I came across Joyful Girl Naturals fantastic shop! I highly recommend taking a look to see all the wonderful products she makes! I have since purchased several bottles of

SLS Free Shampoo Dandruff Control


I have to confess within a few shampoos I literally no longer had itchy flaky scalp!!! Seriously, I tried A LOT of "dandruff" shampoos and NONE of them helped until I found this one! Plus, I have some processed hair and this didn't dry me out or make my color run. Anyone with a sensitive scalp that suffers from dandruff I TOTALLY RECOMMEND to use this product!!!! Before the end of the bottle you'll forget you ever had dandruff!

Now that I had my scalp in order I was looking for new conditioner and I found
Swan Mountain Soaps.
I decided to try Calming Creme Rinse for Hair - Pineapple Crush scent It was a gamble for me to try something with scent but I decided to try it! The scent was delicious but not too strong. My hair was SILKY smooth and NO greasy feeling by the end of the day! I didn't currently see this scent in her shop but I am sure if you convo her she can make one of these scents for you! It smells WONDERFUL!!!
Finally, after using the Joyful Girl shampoo for a while I was looking for something else to use as an alternative since I was no longer suffering from dandruff. Certainly I will still use my Joyful Girl shampoo every few weeks to keep my scalp in check since I still live with the hard water...but LOOK AT THIS!
Gudonya Too
Amazing products! I HAD to try

Gudonya Salty DAWG Creme Shampoo (tm)


and

Gudonya INTENSE Hair Conditioner (tm) - Tahitian Vanilla Scent

This shampoo is like nothing I have EVER used before! They use Natural Sea Salt! It's a bit different when you first squeeze it in to your hand but I LOVE the wonderful scent and the lather is magnificent! Best of all was MY scalp felt CLEAN and my hair was shiny and my scalp didn't get greasy at all!!!! Just a small amount will lather and clean my thick long hair! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE This product and HIGHLY RECOMMEND everyone to try it!!!!
I was also just as pleased with the conditioner. It has a wonderful clean scent! My hair felt so amazingly soft and silky and no greasy film! My scalp never got oily and my hair was tangle free.
The packaging is unique and the squeeze tube is easy to get the product out of.

All of the products I have written about today are products I use and VERY MUCH recommend you to try!
With the thousands of hair care products lining the shelves at every hair salon and beauty supply shop or section in your local shopping spots, I just wanted to offer my point of view on alternative products that I personally believe are far more superior to anything you will find at those locations!!! I have used these and if I get the results I have shared I know you will LOVE them TOO! Especially if you are sensitive like I am. I personally appreciate all the conversations I have had with ALL the vendors of the products I write about. Being a consumer that in the past has literally spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on beauty products I couldn't use with fancy promises and loaded with so many chemicals that I couldn't even pronounce them all it is refreshing for me to find such excellence in a "hand made" market!!!
ALL the vendors above have been SO helpful and open to sharing and understand my sensitive skin. Any of them I am sure would be open to helping you as well!
Even if you are lucky enough not to have sensitivity issues, ALL THE MORE I recommend trying the products I have written about! I think everyone will be delightfully surprised!
