In the past, I have mentioned that New Year’s Resolutions aren’t really my thing. I prefer to live in the present. It’s a positive act to set the intention and there is much to benefit from such achievements. However, I often view resolutions as ideas that someone sees as a far-off and perhaps even unattainable long-term goal. Set those intentions, but live in the present at the same time. Make changes today, even if they seem small.
The calendar proclaims that winter is approaching. However, here in California, the weather still whispers autumn. The season of autumn, also known as fall, is synonymous with the vision of trees dropping their summer foliage. It’s during autumn that the leaves are abundant.
In the past, I have written about greenwashing. It’s a term that became common when the push for more environmentally friendly products came about. According to Dictionary.com, greenwashing is “a superficial or insincere display of concern for the environment that is shown by an organization”.
So I have a confession to make. And this isn’t one of my Time To Come Clean posts.
My hair care routine is fairly basic. I don’t do much with my hair beyond washing and allowing it to dry naturally. However, a few of my family members have hair that requires a bit more negotiation to keep in order. Thick, long, and curly hair can be unmanageable at times. So this is where hair gel is sometimes a necessity. Over the years I have purchased “natural” hair gels, ones that contain less toxic and minimal ingredients. However, they often seemed to be lacking in performance. This would result in resorting back to the store-bought products.
