WTF
What is the point, I mean really...


the point being that soy is used just like a very normal ingredient by a lot of asian people. its not just some hippie vegan thing.

people should check out pack'nsave for vegan goodies. this indian brand Parlee or something make these awesome 'molded' chocolate chip cookies.

Dairy on hobson st by sky city (with the kebab shop out front) sell them as well as the spud stacks chips in small or large sizes.

also from foodtown the mock cream buns and the raspberry and jam buns. you can pretty much always get the frys range from the dominion road foodtown too. fruit runts and chocolate covered coffee beans from the bulk section.

went to the deli in Petone the other day that i was told sold vegan cheese called 'Mini Chol'. turns out its not vegan. however people from wellington should check out this shop. it thinks its called Entrays. its on Fitzhurbert street.
they offer you a coffee as soon as you enter the shop. they sell some amazing olives there.

If they are the ones I'm thinking of, the little tiny square ones, they are in the international foods section (or whatever it's called).

aagh! - I started using the 50/50 balanced shampoo after i had a terrible reaction to a lush shampoo bar (FYI they are almost entirely solid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, oh how i learnt to read the labels the hard way) and it was great for awhile but now even that is making my scalp unhappy :(

I wouldn't trust Nat when it comes to hair products. Word on the street is he uses a mixture of dilipatory cream, animal semen and olive oil to maintain his mane. No joke.

ok let me reiterate the whole paragraph for your personal reading recovery efforts.

i was recommened a 'natural' product - it said it was "VEGAN" in big green letters so i didn't bother to read the ingredients because i wrongly assumed it was a 'fancy' (ph balanced castile) soap and tried it ONCE according to the directions and got chemical burns (it burned, blistered and scabbed) on my scalp so i took it back complained and got a refund.

- now my scalp has healed but is way sensitive, i still have to wash my hair so i am using the gentlist shampoo i can find (giovanni 50/50) - can anyone recommend a gentler shampoo or some kind of scalp treatment that isn't going to make my hair extremely oily?

so yeh.. you still think you need shampoo when you plainly dont... i doubt you could adequately explain why this is

because if I wash my hair without any surfactant I would end up with an oily mess with big chunks of scalp floating in it and other skin problems like back pimples.

and I don't do bald.

recommend product or bog off.

So I decided not to rely soley on their 'not tested on animals' and 'free of animal-derived ingredients' labels and have a read of their actual ingredient list.

So far I've found:
Glycerin (not sure if it's animal derived or not, though)
Beeswax
Lanolin wax
Carmine (crushed insects used for colouring purposes)
Horsetail extract (what the hell?)

And this is just the shit I have knowledge of without having to look up definitions..

What the fuck.

your knowledge include the fact that horsetail is a herb? ;)

:oops: Hahaha, my bad. I honestly was perplexed as to why they'd use horse tail hair in lip gloss..

so are you allergic to water too?

Hey Wax, quit being a dick.
If you have oily hair, the water method isn't going to cut it.

Shades, have you tried the eco-store range?

This is what's in the Manuka and sandalwood anti-dandruff shampoo:

water, Lauryl-glucoside(from glucose), derivatives from palm and coconut oil-Loefin Sulphonate, Laureth-2, Polyol Coconut fatty acid Ester, Sodium Hydroxymethyl Glycinate(from natural amino acid), citric acid, certified organic cider vinegar, highest quality essential oils of manuka, cedarwood atlas, sandalwood, amyris and lemon.

Anything nasty in there? Their catch phrase is "no nasty chemicals" so there shouldn't be. I've found it to be pretty mild, almost too mild for me since I don't like to wash my hair too often. I have a little bit of the vanilla shampoo (dry/damaged hair) you can have if you want to try it out without forking out the cash?
