"No Poo" Method

Okay folks. I've been wanting to do the "no poo" method for EVER but have always been too afraid to do it. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, the "no poo" method is where you get rid of shampoo and conditioner completely and use baking soda and vinegar instead. Sounds crazy right?! Well I am giving it a 30 day trial to see if I love it or ditch it. 

Some of the ingredients that are in shampoo completely strip your hair of it's natural oils, leaving it squeaky clean. Sounds good right? Wrong. This causes your hair to overproduce oil for your hair. That is why most of us can only go a day or two with out shampooing our hair. 

Here are some reasons I've found why "no poo" is great for your hair. 
  • less oily hair
  • more body
  • less frizz and fly aways (great for those of you with curly hair)
  • added shine
  • more money in your pocked, because seriously how cheap is baking soda and vinegar?
  • no chemicals in your hair or scalp
  • new hair growth
So there ya go. I will keep your updated on how it goes and if it's something you should try, because it's fun trying new things!

Hi. I don't know you. I'm a cousin of Karena Potter and saw her comment on a link to this on Facebook. I wanted to comment because I haven't used shampoo for about 10 years. I do, however, use conditioner. I have curly hair and the conditioner is the only styling product I use. It helps my hair form into larger locks instead of separating completely. Even when I don't use anything in it it still is a lot less frizzy than it used to be when I used shampoo regularly. I love my no-poo hair. I do use conditioner to clean my scalp when it feels sweaty or dirty, but maybe I will try baking soda and vinegar instead.

That's awesome! Glad to hear it. Yeah I really haven't heard bad things about conditioner but from what I have researched baking soda and vinegar (most prefer apple cider vinegar) are a good way to go!
