This product really shocked me as admittedly I used it. It’s now in the bin. It’s not the kind of product I thought I’d just use  up and not re buy. So many young girls and mothers use this product because it’s a quick fix to make us look fresh and clean! But at what cost to your health?

Some excellent alternatives are to DIY this yourself using arrowroot flour (From the supermarket) or I prefer orgaic from the health food shop and any essential oils you may like to add. For darker hair you can try adding coco powder until a desired colour is achieved. Oils that are amazing for hair are rosemary, tea tree, cedarwood, geranium, clary sage, lemon and grapefruit Or if store bought is more your style check out these low tox options.
