We had the chance to visit the ABC Expo in Las Vegas this past year. The ABC Expo is gigantic convention for all things kids and family-related. When I say gigantic, I mean gigantic. It was our first time attending and the sheer size and number of vendors is amazing. We were there for three days and still didn’t get to see every display booth. It’s that big!
While we wanted to see everything and talk to every person, it just wasn’t possible. We had to target specific vendors to make sure we had time to speak to everyone we could possibly squeeze in. As we were walking along we noticed a booth that stood out from the crowd. Among all the bright, colorful booths flaunting the colors of childhood was a rustic, wooden bastion of eye-relief with Buckaroo Organics across the front. (Don’t get me wrong, I am not criticizing the colorful booths, but it was a lot of color to process in close proximity with each other!) We headed that way like a moth to a porch light.
When we arrived at the booth, we were greeted by two friendly smiles. Lindsay and Brad introduced themselves and, unlike many of the vendors, took the time to just chat with us. We talked about a lot of different things family-related, business, and life in general. We learned that they are based out of Montana which explained the concept behind their noticeable display. It was a pleasant reprieve from the chaos of the day. Eventually the conversation turned towards their organic product line of skin care, laundry, and cloth diaper care. While Lindsay was showing a few things to Janessa, Brad and I started talking about some of the other products, specifically “Tough As Nails” skin treatment.
I was telling Brad that I have struggled with severe dandruff since my teenage years. The only thing that keeps it away is when I shave my head completely. Between my thick hair and oily scalp, dandruff is the side effect. I am not certain, but I think it could be a mild form of psoriasis. It only shows itself on severe patches of my scalp rather than covering the whole thing. It is kind of embarrassing when I go to get my hair cut or when I wear black. Brad suggested that I try Tough As Nails as he’d seen it work for people with similar issues. As with all their products, it is organic and simple. Ingredients include: Purnis Dulcis (Organic Almond Oil), Helianthus Annuus (Organic Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Organic Rose Hip) Oil, Tocopherol (Organic Vitamin E), Simmodndsia Chinesis Officinalis Flower Extract, Rosa Damascene Flower (Organic Rose) Oil, Certified Organic Essential Oils: Frankincense, Tea Tree, and Lavender.
Now, I’ve tried seemingly everything under the sun to control my dandruff and heal my scalp. Nothing has worked for me. Nothing. While using dandruff shampoo, I’ve combed my scalp raw trying to break the flakes loose and let the shampoo “medicate” my skin. Even that didn’t work. Eventually I got tired of spending money on products and gave up trying. I would just live with the dandruff if I couldn’t shave my head. So, when Brad suggested the Tough As Nails, I kind of wrote it off. That isn’t a reflection on Brad or the product. I just assumed that my scalp was bad enough that it would never work. We spent several more minutes with Lindsay and Brad as we checked out the complete Buckaroo Organics line. At the end, we exchanged information and pleasantries and each family went about their business. They were definitely the most stand-out, personable, and real people of the trip. We talked about them and their products several times throughout the remainder of our time there and our flight home.
Several months later, I noticed Janessa was ordering some of the bath bombs from Buckaroo Organics to give as gifts to her sisters. Our busiest quarter of the year was coming to a close and, in the chaos before Christmas, I had sort of forgotten about my conversation with Brad. Winter had settled in and I usually let my hair grow out longer. Along with that comes the inevitable dandruff. I was so sick of it, I decided to give Tough As Nails a try. I ordered my bottle and waited.
The package arrived a few days later and I started using it the next morning. My scalp was so severe, I started out using three pumps from the bottle and rubbing it through my wet hair and into my scalp after my shower. (For reference, one pump from the bottle produces about a dime size of product.) I repeated this every day for five days before I noticed that my dandruff was drastically reduced. I was surprised, but still skeptical. I had found a shampoo a few years earlier that had produced similar results, but suddenly stopped working. Who knows why?
I wanted to keep going with the experiment so I reduced the amount of product I was using to two pumps that I rubbed into my wet hair and scalp each morning. A few days later, I still had almost no sign of dandruff. It was basically reduced to a few very small patches on my scalp and the number of flakes they produced were no worse than that of the average person. I was astonished. Nothing had ever worked so effectively before. Janessa closely inspected my scalp and she too was amazed at the incredible difference! There was almost nothing left!
Now I’ve reduced the amount I use even further; a single pump (the size of a dime) each morning that I rub into my wet hair and scalp. This stuff healed my scalp so well, I still have almost no dandruff. I am truly in awe of just how well Tough As Nails has worked for me. This small amount is enough to maintain my scalp after healing all of the flakes, itchiness, dryness, and redness.
Best skin care product I’ve ever purchased, hands down.
I can’t recommend Buckaroo Organics more highly. Janessa loves their bath bombs, I love Tough As Nails, and we have several of their baby products ready to go for a newest little one! If you struggle with dandruff or dry skin in general and nothing else has given you relief, try Tough As Nails. Check out their other products as your browse their website as well. I wish I had listened to Lindsay and Brad sooner.
