Japanese âIce Brasâ: An Eco-Friendly Way To Freeze Your Tits Off!

Life Without Shampoo: Week One

Life Without Shampoo: Week One

Last week, I wrote about my curiosity with the “no-shampoo” movement, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: folks who are eschewing shampoo, in favor of a more natural approach. People are skipping the sudsy stuff for a number of reasons, including a desire to be more eco-friendly, and concerns over the potentially-harmful chemicals often used to create lather and make it smell good.

Going shampoo-free doesn’t require many special ingredients–in place of “shampoo”, I used baking soda and water mixed together in a travel-sized bottle. The “conditioner” recommended is a mix of apple cider vinegar and water.

Perhaps in an act of cosmic balancing, the retailer has also released the Fall 2011 campaign for its Conscious collection and it’s really, really lovely. The campaign stars Frida Gustavsson and Caroline Brasch Nielsen voguing like ’90s supermodels in a bunch of beautiful dark floral prints and chic basics. Good look picking a favorite shoe, though.
