Original Sprout-Natural Hair Gel

Well it had to happen, my son has my hair. Thankfully although extremely curly it is also super adorable (I wish I could say the same about my curls). Now that we keep his hair a little shorter than we used to he gets a few crazy pieces that stick up and slicking it back with water like I usually do doesn’t always work anymore.

I had heard about Original Sprout brand and this was my excuse to finally try it out. The founder of this hair and skin care line decided to create a product with pure and safe ingredients after the birth of her daughter. Because this line is natural and organic and made especially for babies and up, I felt good about using it on my little guy. Original Sprout also has quite the celebrity following!

I bought the Natural Hair Gel and I love it. It is gentle, smells great and rinses out really well. I will be trying more from this line soon, I have the sun protection on my wish list. Will report back on what I try! For now here is a picture of my little guy!

I ♥ Jillian Michaels

I heart skincare is about more than the latest lip balm. I truly believe that in order to have beautiful skin you have to have feed your body proper nutrients, get enough sleep and exercise. I do everything in my power to live by this philosophy.

No one in the world, and I mean no one has taught me more than Jillian Michaels in regards to health, fitness and nutrition. I discovered her one day on a local LA radio station, at the time I had never heard of her popular TV show the Biggest Loser. I listened to every radio show where she taught us all about what to eat like organic foods, how to lose weight and so much more. Once that radio show ended (feeling horribly sad and abandoned!) I began to watch the Biggest Loser to get my Jillian fix but it did not stop there.

Since my introduction to her I have bought all of her books (currently listening to Unlimited on my iPod) use her fitness DVD’s (perfect for baby’s nap time which has been the only time I can work out) and faithfully listen to her new podcast on my daily walks (you can find these free podcasts on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-jillian-michaels-show/id418368811 ). Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this show, you will be amazed how much you will learn and she is quite entertaining!

This woman is a treasure. If you are at all interested in your health and wellness you will love the tools that Jillian has out there. I feel such gratitude for her and all she has taught me personally. At the end of the day the way we look, the way we feel, how we take care of ourselves-it’s all related. Our best tool is to educate ourselves to know and do better, and it doesn’t hurt to have someone as  inspiring as Jillian out there to guide us along.
