|Me and my hair|
It’s been awhile since we chatted about beauty routines and cleansing habits. Since starting a new job, I’ve eased up on the no shampoo thing. My scalp was getting increasingly irritated by the baking soda and vinegar which resulted in… flakes.
What I have been doing is washing my hair every other day with an extremely clean shampoo that both No More Dirty Looks and EWG would approve of. I buy it in bulk at PCC (for non-Seattlites, an amazing grocery co-op) so I’m not fretting about all the containers I’m using.
I was feeling really good about my routine until I read that the average 10 minute shower can take anywhere from 25 – 70 gallons of water! Even every other day, that’s a lot. So I’m going to try to cut back to 3-5 minute showers, with the aid of a timer or my cell phone. And, I should also probably hassle our landlord to put in a low-flow shower head.
Does anyone have any water-saving techniques to share? For the shower or elsewhere?
