Well, well who would have thought that one of the manifestations of the Zap Zone would be me going totally (Haute & Urban) Hippy? Me suddenly going ape and getting rid of every single remotely chemical/toxic personal care or cleaning product fits though. Uranus is square Pluto: I have Aquarius Rising – Uranus is my ruler. Three days after a totes chemical free regime and peeps are asking if i am pregnant. Actually, i thought they might be misinterpreting my pasta-belly – i did have a massive Italian banquet the other night – but no, they are using adjectives like ‘radiant’ and ‘fresh glow.’ No product – just hemp oil. Go figure.
But guess what? There is a whole level beyond this and i am going to go there. So can you if you want to join me. Do your own Googling on this obviously BUT there is a growing bunch of folks who flat refuse to use shampoo. I know, it sounds awful. But they say that the Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (and similar) gunk in 95% of shampoos out there is toxic, causes hair loss and so on. People talk about hair getting crappier with age but it’s actually just years of exposure to this stuff. It strips out the natural oils so the hair responds by making too much oil and a whole hideous cycle occurs.
The “No Poo” people say that you go through a ghastly stage of the hair “adjusting” and then after a few weeks, the hair is sensational, shiny, growing faster and thicker than ever before. All without any shampoo. Or conditioner obviously. They’re quite radical about it.
So i am going to try it – who wants to do it with me? It’s hard as i have a Gemini Hairdresser Friend who gives me free treatments/blowouts etc as i do her astro & tarot on a regular basis. It’s a brillliant arrangement and i love sitting there under the steamer or being blowdried. reading Vogue and listening to local goss. It’s like a ritual for me. But my hair is – frankly – fried. Now i am thinking that only peeps likewise doing Saturn/Pluto transits will want to be in on this with me but who wants to? We have to commit to a month or two of hair hell but then by the time Saturn gets into Scorpio, it will be purely sensational…the hair we were MEANT to have…
It’s also kind of naked and radical as when you surrender this stuff, you realize how much of your identity is formed (albeit in subtle and hard to pin down ways) around product…I think this is actually a Zap Zone theme. Note also the spray tanning story that broke just as Uranus got all cosy with Pluto last week.
Go google No Poo – there is a LOT online about this – and share here…I will need company lol.
