Well folks, we have decided to consolidate. Once upon a time we shared ingredient information with you via a sub-domain. Beginning today, we're bringing that content inside. We want this to be in all-inclusive experience for you. The Kitchen will now live on on this very website! No need to venture off to another website!
One of the goals of All Tressed Up is to create awareness in an effort to help you make the right choices when selecting products. Ultimately, this will help you choose more natural products. As you already know, the skin is the largest organ of the body. We are smothering it with lotions, potions and scrubs that are full of chemicals. Let's make well informed product choices and put an end to supporting products that are designed to produce profit while ignoring things such as side-effects after continued use.
Each cell of your body was created to serve a specific purpose. Adding synthetic chemicals and preservatives compromises the true function by hindering or crippling. Allow your cells to thrive and join us in this journey, but before you do here are the rules:
Rule #1: Read your labels
If it is difficult to pronounce or contains a number, it is usually a chemical. When reading labels, the ingredients that are listed first make up the highest content of the product and it continues to decline as you read to the right. How many times have you seen a product that says 'made with shea butter' and you find shea listed as the twenty-sixth ingredient. They weren't lying. It's in there, but perhaps only two drops worth.
Rule #2: Do your research and know what's good or bad
There may be a bit of debate surrounding many of these ingredients. I'll be researching these ingredients as a part of my own journey and sharing my findings with you. I strongly encourage you to research on your own. At the end of the day, you have to decide what is okay and not okay for you personally.
Rule #3: Share your findings
If you find something interesting, share it. This is a journey that we are all taking together.
But wait, that's not all! Not only will The Kitchen include ingredient profiles; you can also check out beauty recipes and even a few edible recipes. Get ready!
