No Poo

No, this is not a post about pooping. It's a post about not shampooing your hair. It's something that I ran across and was very intrigued by. I thought "hmmm, why not give it a try".

It's just another thing that would put me into the "crunchy" stereo type. But pfft I don't care. I want to try this. I want to know if it works. Now, I bet you want to know how it really does work. Well this is what I understand about it.

All you are going to need is vinegar, baking soda and water. Easy, right?

Time to clean that head of hair.

~ Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 cup of water. Apply it to your hair starting with the roots and working your way down to the ends of your hair. Once your hair begins to feel smooth you can go ahead and rinse it out.

~ I have read a bunch of different ratios for this. I am going to try 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of water. Start at your roots and work your way down. I guess you can add essential oils to the mix as well.

Style your hair as you normally would.

I read that your hair can go through a transition process and it can get nasty. I am telling y'all right now. If I hit that point I am going back to the curly girl method of washing my hair. The curly girl method is pretty similar except that you use store bought products that don't contain "cones" or "sulfates".

I am going to update after my first wash! eeek I can't wait to try this!

My friend made her own shampoo a few weeks ago and said after a few days her hair got kinda gross...maybe I should tell her to stick with it through the nasty phase. Hmmmmm. I'm curious to hear how your experience goes!
