I second the recommendation for henna - read up on it at longhaircommunity first.  It's cheap and will eliminate a lot more chemicals, as well as making your hair healthier.

We are the albatross is a great way to put it.  I'm going to remember that when talking to people.  My close friends and family are not as hard to convince, I'm mainly just trying to drop non-overwhelming ideas that I have been trying to inspire them rather than discourage them with the upsettingness that is the state of all our chemical exposure, but when I talk to other people I will probably use that way of putting it.  That, and talking about hormones and synthetic hormones and their effect on weight.  Pretty much every girl wants to lose weight, and in so many cases plastic is seriously hampering that.  I wish I had really paid attention to those articles about phthalates and things I used to read earlier!
