Why? Because it wasn’t fun anymore. Not even the thrill of free razor blades could entice me to keep clipping. I’m a Trader Joe’s shopper now, and haven’t really looked back. Shopping feels simple again, and I am all for that.
2. Washing my hair with baking soda and vinegar.
Why? Because I felt like my hair was getting too greasy, or maybe not getting totally clean to begin with. The underside (the part under my ponytail) was always looking narsty. Also, I am showering at the gym a few times a week now and switching from baking soda to shampoo and back again meant my hair didn’t get totally used to all baking soda, all the time. (Your hair usually needs to adjust to the baking soda, and once it does it will stop producing as much oil. But switching back and forth meant that adjustment never really happened).
Lastly, we got caught in the rain one evening a few weeks ago, and all I could smell was my apple cider vinegar hair. And not in a pleasant way.
Has anyone out there quit anything recently? Are there things I should be quitting that I haven’t yet? Tell me all about it. Quitting in these two areas has felt great.
