Project Productless

Hey everybody!
So, I have a goal (did anyone else just get some 'I have a dream' vibes??). Well, the
goal is to become productless. And by that I mean not use or buy any products
such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste or anything like that. I want a natural 
cruelty free beauty routine without chemicals, perfume and all that nasty stuff, haha.

Because I want to. I want to not use all those products with ingredients that doesn't 
want the best for my body. It is kind of like a body detoxing and becoming more 
natural. It is better for the environment, you save money and it is just so much more
simple + it's cruelty free.

So here is an overview of what I use and for what I use it for
Shampoo: Rhassoul clay - There will be a post about how and why I use this + the
the benefits of using this instead of a regular shampoo.

Face (mask) and body cleanser: Rhassoul clay - I also use this as a facemask and
a body scrub which it is amazing for! It works wonders and my sensitive skin has
never been softer!

Conditioner: Apple cider vinegar mixed with water - I have already made a post about
using apple cider vinegar as conditioner and let me tell you; my hair has never ever
been softer after using this. See how right here

Coconut oil can be used for many many things and here is just a few things I use it for:
Hair oil: Just rub a bit between your hands and run it through the ends of your hair.
Body moisturizer: Makes my body super soft! Just use a tiny bit.
Make up remover: I gently rub it on my eyes to remove my mascara and then remove
the excess with a cotton pad.
Shaving cream: Again using a tiny bit on your legs and then shave as you normally
Toothpaste: I sometimes use coconut oil as toothpaste (sometimes I use a homemade
toothpaste which I will post about soon) - But I also use this for oil pulling.

Deodorant: I make my own deodorant and just click here to see how. Another thing
where I use coconut oil.

Homemade saltwater spray - If I feel like styling my hair I will use this DIY salt water
spray which you can see how to make by clicking right here. Perfect for the natural
salty look.

Homemade dry shampoo - I have made dry shampoo once before (link to it here)
but I find that using arrowroot powder instead of flour works much better and gives
a much lighter and cleaner feel. Just make it the same way as you would with flour.

The only product I use is a cream called Traumeel which is made from natural 
ingredients and is homeopathic. I use it as a face cream, for my lips and sometimes
for my body.
