So, here is what I will tell all of you about shampoos. I have been using some that ::: probably ::: contain a tiny bit of coconut molecules. GASP! I know, I know! Shocking.
But guess what? It's okay. Unless you go into anaphylactic shock if you are in the same county as a coconut tree, many of these coconut-derived ingredients probably won't bother you if they are low on the ingredient list. I'm not saying, go out and start eating macaroons, but I am saying that we can all chill out a little bit. Everyone's level of sensitivity is different. That is why you need to go to the effort of testing each product we use before dumping it on our heads in the shower. If you haven't already, please read this "Am I Going to Have an Allergic Reaction to this Shampoo?" post about doing a little self-allergy test.
With that said, I am going to tell you about the shampoos that I have been using for a long time that give me absolutely no reaction at all. And, I don't need to talk about conditioners, because most of them don't have any coconutty stuff in them.
SHAMPOOS I USE ALL THE TIME:
There are shampoos out there that will cost a fortune, and there are ones that are made by monks, or wind power, organic, vegan, etc, etc. Forget it. All you need is one that you don't react to. Just because you have allergies doesn't mean you have to change your religion or become more political or co-sleep with all of your children. You just have to not get hives or have your face swell up.
