Hippie Locks and the 3 ingredients

Alright, lets talk Hair!

Have you ever looked at the ingredients in shampoo? No? Well don’t because it may just make your head explode… Literally!
I used to be one of those Hair freakazoids, “Its gotta make my hair shiny and it better damn well smell like someone wants to eat it!”4876559A23C973A046A1CD2817E1C8_h296_w526_m2_bblack_q99_p99_cEYgHRVfh
Little did I know, THOSE ARE THE WORST KINDS!!! The chemicals it takes to make your head smell like a dessert buffet could be the cause of a lot health issues! I won’t go into all that, I am no doctor.

But I know that once I decided to make the change for my hair.
I had a major decrease in headaches. Coincidence? Maybe!

Why Hippie?

Well this is the first of many posts! But I guess I should start with a little about WHY I chose to start this Crunchy, Hippie blog! First of all, Crunchy is a new term I have come to learn. I have yet to fully comprehend all that comes with being “Crunchy”. Is it a lifestyle? Is it a peanut butter blend? Who the hell knows. What I do know is, what I have read and learned about it… I LIKE IT! I said, “Sign me up for some of that crunchy living!”.

I used to think being a Hippie just meant you don’t bathe, and well you live in a van, a bus or on your friends futon! Little did I know I eventually would STRIVE to be one.

Hippie? Its such a vague term for group of people who chose to live for love of all things and leave very little carbon foot print along their path. I sat down about a week ago after a long a very grueling work day, and I asked myself, “Kaydia, do you REALLY need all this sh*t in your house? Do you REALLY need to use that chemical filled shampoo?”. Nope! No one does. It all started 2 years ago when my Darling Husband included me in one of his many Vegan fastings for a spiritual cleansing.

This is my Husband! Ain’t he a cutie?

  MAN was I a wuss. No cheese? WHAAAT? But I learned a lot about myself and the strength I had to overcome addiction. FOOD!

Comfort foods, nasty foods I ate every day. We since have done this wonderful Vegan fasting 2 years in a row now. Its cleansing and amazing. I decided this year after pining away for cheese over our 3 months of fasting, I want to do this for real. No more half assing it along. Put down the cheese and pick up that apple.

I also have ridden our house of most chemical filled house hold supplies. Do you know HOW much crap is in your sunscreen alone this summer? Enough to fuel a chemical reactor for a few short moments I am sure! So lets take this Clean living journey together. Break out your Peace signs and bell bottoms, cause this, is gonna be a Crunchy ride!! 😉

Peace, love and Cacao beans
