Ready for life's adventures.
Health. Fit. Strong.
A few years ago, I desperately and immediately had to switch over my personal care and hair care products to natural replacements. Unfortunately, I had several, and I do mean several, bad experiences with hair care products. Many of them left my hair looking like I just won a marathon where they threw bacon grease on the champion.
So many shampoos just didn’t do a good job of getting my hair CLEAN. To put it quite frankly, they sucked. (Sorry Grandma. I couldn’t think of a better word)
Now, all you precious people who can do the “no poo” method, bless you. And all you lovelies that don’t sweat on your scalp much, well bless you and your stay-clean-for-a-week hair.
I sweat like a pig on a hot July day when I work-out, and resemble a homeless person if I do not shower and wash my hair immediately.
As a highly competitive person and an extrovert by nature, I thrive in the competitive sports arena. During cross country practice in college, I LOVED sprint days because it meant I had a chance at winning. I could push myself and out sprint not only all the girls on the team, but the guys as well. I loved being in competitive sports. But I am no longer a competitive athlete.
I applaud any and ALL healthy efforts to get healthy (read here, we do not condone or applaud crash diets, bingeing, or starvation). But here’s the thing, in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and not let it be just a phase, we need to approach it in a more realistic and sustainable way.
As people who have maintained a healthy lifestyle for nearly a decade, we have learned some very valuable lessons along the way and want to help in any way we can.
