My Brooklinen Chambray Linen Hardcore Sheet Bundle Review

After a long day, almost all of us want to end up in a bedroom that’s relaxing and a restful place. Your bedroom should be a serene oasis where you can escape all the hustle bustle. When the room is clean, organized, and full of things you love, you’re more likely to enjoy the time you spend there. We spend up to a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important to choose great bed sheets that are comfortable and durable. Your linens should be comfortable first and foremost, with style coming in second! When it comes to the sheets, splurge!

My Plant-Based Hair Care Routine: How I Keep My Long Hair Healthy

As my husband and I care for our dog, Lychee, fighting his kidney disease battle, we learn a lot about macrobiotic lifestyle. We incorporate more plant-based meals into our daily life. We learn that our kidneys are not only affected by the bad toxic food we eat everyday (fast food, white rice/bread, oily/sugary snacks, sodas, coffee,…) but also by fragrance chemicals that we’re possibly exposed to every day (perfumes, detergent, soaps, lotions, shampoos,..). These fragrance chemicals (synthetic scents) represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients including carcinogens, allergens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants. So my husband and I try our best to replace everything “fragrant” in our household with homemade plant-based alternatives; for example, we home grow aloe vera and use the meat (with Manuka honey) for body lotions and face masks, we use our garden grown grapefruits to make our own dish washer and hand soap,….As we were trying to figure out how to make our own shampoos and conditioners, I got contacted by Phyto to try their plant-based haircare products. For over 50 years, Phyto has been a leader in plant-based hair care. All of their products are overall 95% botanicals and formulated in their family-owned labs in France.

Their products embrace the principle that healthy hair begins at the root, and they have created so many unique products that contain no parabens, sodium laurate sulfate, synthetic fragrances, and no added water. Since then I have incorporated Phyto in my haircare routine and every since I started following this regime my hair changed completely! Below, I’ve outlined this routine and the products I use along the way for you. My hope is that all of my time and energy can help at least one of you get one step closer to the hair you’ve always dreamed of.
