A Lush New Discovery

You’ve heard it here before and it probably won’t be the last time either, A and I spend some significant time on her hair. I’m on the hunt again for organic products for my sweet one’s hair and skin.  Since diagnosis it seems like  her hair has gone through a ton of changes, but so has her skin.  The start of the winter months here haven’t helped. Both her hair and skin need some TLC and I am always on the look out for great natural products to meet that need.  To recap, some of our biggest issues have been, extremely dry scalp, skin and hair.  She seems to have also developed a sensitivity to certain products within the last six months or so.

A few weeks ago I discovered Lush Cosmetics (www.lushusa.com).  I was personally in search of aluminum free deodorant and hadn’t had a ton of luck finding one I liked in the stores.  Someone told me about Lush and while I was looking at the deodorant options I found they had *mostly* natural shampoo bars.   After some searching and research about their products I decided on the Montalbano shampoo bar.

We love this shampoo bar! There is a nice lather and it smells really great.  Hence.. the name Lush (providing great sensory pleasure)!  The nice thing about this bar, besides the great olfactory aspect, is that it didn’t leave her hair dry or feeling overly stripped. It also did a good job clearing her dry scalp remnants.Screen Shot 2017-11-24 at 6.11.25 PM.pngThe ingredients are primarily natural (winning) and those that are not are listed as ‘safe synthetics’. For those wondering, I like the deodorant too (it’s called T’eo). After the success we’ve had with the shampoo bar I’ll be trying some of their conditioners next.

Hugging the Cactus

T1D is like a prickly cactus (literally and figuratively), but I've learned to embrace it, thorns and all.
