So it’s clearly the season of gifting and i have another subscriber giveaway – this time it is a box of cool product from A Bit Hippy – Shampoos, Conditions, Moisturizers, Vegan Lip Balms, some tea…etc. There is way more in it than the picture above…
So they are phtlate (can’t spell it, don’t want to spell it) and paraben free – we knew they were bad for us already but these products are also silicone free. I did not know why silicone was villainous but voila: “Silicone creates the illusion of healthy, shiny hair while actually further drying out the hair from the inside, which is exactly as sinister as it sounds. “Silicone coats the hair shaft for a sleek shiny finish, but it prevents the real nutrients from conditioners to penetrate the hair shaft.”
It actually sounds like one of those Undead relationships or friendships. And of course, you can hypo-google your heart out if you want to find links between life/serenity-threatening conditions and chemicals in products we use everyday.
BUT what freaks me out about this is it is the same shit hippies have been on about for decades. i had a pretty intense Norsca habit in my teens and recall this old (i thought) hippy of a teacher lecturing me about petrochemicals that don’t actually spring from the pine woods of the Norwegian Alps but more like the bottom of the cesspools of capitalist pricks who also poisoned our water supplies with flouride to thin our bones and something about the cuttlefish that budgies sharpened their beaks on. Right? It was confusing to me also BUT she was basically correct about more or less everything she said.
SO i am going to send this amazing gift box out to whomever comes up with the Coolest Shit Hippies Said That Was Correct anecdote – throw in astrology if you can, my hippy teacher was – yes – an Aquarius and with the Aquarius t-shirt worn for sporting activities, rainbow eye shadow, a VW (she would have flipped at the emissions scandal – hers was the Herbie generation) and amber anklets.
I will announce the winner by Friday!
