In a few of the blogs I follow, I keep hearing about not using shampoo. I was intrigued. I thought maybe I should try it. It took me awhile to make the switch. Mainly because I had just bought quite a few jumbo bottles of shampoo and conditioner.
What is no ‘poo?
Well, it’s a way of cleaning your hair that uses only baking soda and apple cider vinegar. This website has lots of great info on how to do it that is very detailed. I just keep a Mason jar of baking soda and a one cup measuring cup in my bathroom so I don’t have to run around looking for things. I mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda in with a full cup of water and just pour onto my scalp. I massage it for a bit then rinse. I then spritz a mixture of ACV and mostly water on my hair, give a few seconds then rinse it out quickly. Done.
I have just started four days ago but I am already impressed. My hair has body. It curls and waves slightly. It no longer just hangs there. And, best of all, my dandruff is greatly improved. I’m kind of nervous because they say there is an adjustment phase and your hair can get greasy. I hate going around with greasy hair.
Have you tried no ‘poo? What did you think? Have you stuck with it?
