I don't watch TV anymore so no tempting commercials. Before I buy any beauty product I read the ingredients and buy natural.

It's eye opening what companies put into products. Research ingredients if unsure.

Actually, you can wash your hair with conditioner, in a pinch. You have to use more conditioner than you would normally use. Really work it into your hair, gentle but thoroughly, then rinse well. Your hair will feel soft and will be clean but not stripped of its natural oils.

Why would anyone want to put this crap on their hair?

This video is total nonsense promoting harmful ingredients like ...Laurel Sulfates, Fragance, and others. Why on earth is in on Healthy Living? Is this a joke - should be considered one.

This is why I now read EVERYTHING in the ingredients before I either use it or eat it.
I've opened my eyes a long time ago to what the real world is all about, and all the lies produced by the media. I get so agitated every time I see stupid new products that prey on men and women's insecurities, like that antiperspirant for softer armpits (why?! you wouldn't have thought about stubbly or ugly armpits before Dove mentioned it)...but there you go, you see it on TV and now you think you have to have attractive stubble-free, moisturized armpits, paper white teeth, and you have to use whatever type of shampoo that celebrity endorsed so you can have sexy, thick hair. UGH.
Do yourself a favour, stop watching tv, reading those garbage magazines and switch to all natural products (make sure you're not being greenwashed or fooled by marketing), and please read ingredients!
