Plastic Challenge: Mary Katherine, Week 14

Plastic Challenge: Mary Katherine, Week 14

 

 

I’m running out of shampoo… I tried the baking soda vinegar thing, but it left a nasty earwax-like residue on my scalp. It made my head itch too. I adjusted the amounts and everything but it still didn’t work. I tried a bar from Lush that worked well but it had sodium laurel sulfate in it. And it was $11… I tried a cheaper natural one from the farmer’s market, but it left my hair all dirty and nasty. What shampoo bars are good?
