Time for a Haircut?

When you go to the salon to get your haircut, do you bring your own shampoo and conditioner or do you let them use theirs and possibly read the ingredients? With different salons I have done different things. If I am going to a new salon for the first time, I bring my own shampoo and conditioner. I always felt funny doing so, but I never got a funny stare or comment from anyone from doing so. A quick explanation why I was bringing my own for them to use was sufficient. The salon I now go to has a shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t irritate my scalp too much as it is without parabens and wheat and most fillers you find in other hair products.

One thing I came to terms with really quickly was the idea that I most definitely am not the only one to have an itchy scalp after using certain shampoos and/or conditioners, so never feel uncomfortable pulling my shampoo and conditioner out of my purse for them to use. At the end of the day, why give yourself an itchy scalp if you can go without? There’s absolutely no shame in bringing products you have history with and know will not make your scalp burn.

Perhaps you are reading this and don’t have allergies… If that’s the case, have you ever read the ingredient list on the shampoo or conditioner bottles?!?! some of them are soooo long.

I use Prairie Natural’s, what do you use?

Over and out.

  1. I suffer from a variety of allergies from food to scents…thank you for this post as since my scent allergy is severe I find it hard to find shampoos that don’t have any fragrance added as my scalp breaks out making my scalp blister with hives…I will certainly check out this product

    • I can definitely relate to the itchy scalps and not knowing what to use. Another brand I use quite frequently is Dr. Bronner’s, though you may want to check the ingredients as some have almond oil in them.

      Good luck and let me know how you find either of the products. I also usually buy plain olive oil soap without fragrance, or use Dr. Bronner’s bar soap 🙂
