Become #PartOfOurFamily with Head & Shoulders

For years, we have been buying Head & Shoulders shampoo. In fact, Justin has used it since  before I met him- over ten years ago! I’d actually never used it until recently, when Head & Shoulders asked me to try their new Fresh Scent Technology. It’s not that I didn’t like Head & Shoulders, I just didn’t think I had a reason to use it because I’ve never had a dandruff problem. It turns out, I didn’t need to have one to benefit from using it.

I was a bit skeptical when I agreed to the review but I was so impressed when I tried it! I opened up the bottle and could instantly smell the Fresh Scent Technology. It has a great fragrance {I’m never very good at naming what I’m smelling but I would consider it a clean smell with a light hint of something floral} and is not at all overpowering. The scent made my shower refreshing – and the shampoo and conditioner made my hair so light. I have really long, thick hair, and this product combination made my curls really bouncy. I think it was a result of the shampoo giving me a really good cleaning and the conditioner moisturizing without weighing my hair down.

Shane's first day

Black shirts, almost-black hair, and not a flake in sight on Shane’s first day of school!

Like I said, I’ve never really had a problem with dandruff, but it’s still something that I think about. I have very dark brown hair- it’s almost black, it’s so dark- and I also wear a lot of black because I make incredibly boring fashion choices. That’s a whole lot of opportunity for a few flakes to ruin my day, so I figure it doesn’t hurt to take preemptive measures and use Head & Shoulders!

Head & Shoulders has added the Fresh Scent Technology I mentioned to several of their products, including Green Apple, Smooth & Silky, Classic Clean, and Damage Rescue! They are all available now at your local store.

Take Baby Steps to a More Natural Lifestyle with Johnson’s Natural!

What shampoo did you use as a kid? What about lotion? Baby powder? Odds are, you’ve been using Johnson’s products since before you had your own little ones. Johnson’s brand has been around for generations & for good reason: it’s high quality stuff that we remember fondly from our own childhoods & carry over into those of our own children.

But, just like how we change & grow as we go from being the one with the baby shampoo mohawk to being the one giving the bath, Johnson’s has changed & grown, too! Recently, Johnson’s debuted their line of more “green” products: Johnson’s Natural!

The Johnson’s Natural product line is great for several reasons: it still has the No More Tears formula that has become synonymous with Johnson’s, an allergen-free fragrance {great for my little dude who has sensitive skin}, & best of all- it’s made up of 98% natural ingredients! There are three items currently in the line: Johnson’s Natural Head-To-Toe Baby Wash, Johnson’s Natural Baby Shampoo, and Johnson’s Natural Baby Lotion. &The line recently won the 2012 Better Homes and Gardens Best New Product Award!

I received a sample of each of the products to test out on Shane, which was no easy feat. While he loves the bath, he hates getting clean. I did manage to try everything out, though- eventually!

Johnson’s Natural Baby Shampoo: Even though Shane gets upset when I put shampoo on his head, I’m confident that he didn’t shed a single tear due to this shampoo. It has the No More Tears formula, and is paraben-free, dye-free, and allergen-free, with no essential oils & 98% natural ingredients from plants and fruit. It was nice & sudsy and a little bit went a long way to get his hair clean!

Johnson’s Natural Baby Lotion: Also free of all the icky stuff, this lotion is actually 99% natural, which I think is very impressive. The allergen-free fragrance smelled really good & it didn’t seem greasy to me.

Johnson’s Natural Head-To-Toe Baby Wash: This one was my favorite because it makes washing easy. Since Shane already fights me when it comes to getting clean, it’s a lot easier for me to just use one product to wash everything. The more time I spend rinsing the pouf & grabbing a new product, the more anxious he gets, so having one product that can do it all is great. I also liked that it came out as foam, which also made washing up a lot faster.

We like to try to incorporate “green” things into our lives, but we’re not as adamant about it as I’d like. We’d like to do more, but we just can’t find the time or money to do the big stuff, like use compost buckets, ride a bike instead of drive, etc. But we do the little things: recycle, turn the lights off, and now, use 98% natural body wash, shampoo & lotion for Shane!

Make sure to check out the Johnson’s Natural Website for more information about the products & ingredients, to receive coupons & to watch a series of videos full of tips on how to affordably start incorporating natural living into your everyday family life!

What small steps do you take to make your life a little bit greener?
