Go No 'Poo

I am going no poo.

No, that doesn't mean I am constipated. It means that I am forgoing shampoo and conditioner for the next few weeks. I have always liked making things myself. Candles, lotions, etc. and this is just another way for me to try something new.

I got the idea from here. Seriously? I have nothing to lose. And my hair could use a time-out from all the chemicals and such in shampoos and colorants. I have always tried to make my hair softer. But I was putting more and more things ON my hair. I decided I needed to start at the base, from the beginning.

Here is the general idea.
Use baking soda dissolved in enough water to make a paste. Lightly scrub it into your scalp then rinse. Then use 2T apple cider vinegar in 1 c water to rinse the ends of your hair.
That's it.

I have done this for two days so far. And while not long enough to form a decision, I have noticed that my hair doesn't smell like vinegar. That was my biggest worry. And my second noticeable was not by me, but by Grau. He played with my hair stating how soft it was.

I think that is a positive review for now. So I will keep it up and see how my hair fares. I'll let you know how it goes, if you're interested.
