No Poo Shampoo
*update* I use 1T Apple Cider Vinegar with 1C water as conditioner every other washing.
**upadte #2** I have since added Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang essential oils. They help with hair growth. Bonus? They also help with hormones. This is a VERY good thing.
I read a fellow blogger had gone poo’less. Meaning she decided to quit using shampoo!
I decided to try this as well.
What could I lose?
I am all about easy and frugal! Simple if you will.
2T baking soda
4C of hot H2O
I use about a cup per washing
Hubs, who hair challenged, uses 1/2 that.
My hair does NOT smell at all.
I did have a week or so of itchy scalp…and uh…zits…I probably could have changed the oil in my car….
After the little time of waiting for my hair to adjust it was great!
A re-purposed an Aquafina bottle that I bought at a gas station on a road trip.
My hair after only about 3 weeks of going poo-less
Feels more manageable and thicker…My hair has been thin all my life…so this, for me, is AH-Mazing!

I want to try this, but I am scared! I have thick, long hair and it gets knotted easily. I use conditioner to get the knots out. What to do….what to do!??!?!
If this really works it sounds great! Do you use conditioner with it? Thanks for sharing! Found you at WATF link up. You can visit my blog at http://www.fridaynightdatenight.blogspot.com
Apple cider vinegar rinse every other wash. Will visit for sure!
I keep hearing about this…scared to try it…but definitely interested! I get lots of dry scalp and oily roots if I wash too much…
I did this recently and have been super pleased as well. For the comment about conditioner…when I read about it, the lady used apple cider vinegar for that. I wash with baking soda and follow that up with about a tablespoon of the vinegar in a cup or so of water and then rinse. I don’t smell like a salad and my hair feels more balanced than it does when I just do the soda. One is acidic and the other is alkaline and they balance each other out. Hope this helps.
It totally cracks me up that you say you could have changed the oil in your car!! It is good to know that it could get really ugly before it gets better. I know I need to try this sometime, but I just haven’t taken the plunge yet.
I love that I have! So much better for our septic, too.
Do you know if this will work on color treated hair?
I have ben told no, but that was by a stylist. I color my hair and use this without a problem.
I have been told no, but that was by a stylist who thought I was nuts for using it. I haven’t had a problem with my colored hair.
Are you still doing no poo?
