Okay, I am finally saying goodbye to shampoo. Or as the insiders say it, I am a No-Poo-er. I tried to do this in the winter, but I was 7 months pregnant, 30 lbs heavier than normal, pale and having greasy hair was the last thing I needed for my self esteem. So now that it's summer this is the time to transition into having wonderful healthy hair. I've always loved the idea of not washing it (I know to some this may sound distgusting...) but it leaves the natural oils in your hair helping it grow, and letting it look so healthy, voluminous, and textured.
I have been a long time lover of dry shampoo, which is great to make your hair last longer from wash to wash. My favourites are Kevin Murphy's Fresh Hair, or from the drug store, Suave.
On my first No-Shampoo wash I just completely skipped shampoo, and just scrubbed my roots with water and then conditioned my ends. Added Dry Shampoo once it was dry. Went over great.
My plan is to do the Baking Soda trick, 6 parts water to 1 part baking soda, this replaces you shampoo.
I'm excited to see the difference, and hopefully the growth soon! I will keep you updated on how this goes.
