    My sister did this for a couple of weeks….and man, you could tell. Her hair looked awful, and she said it felt disgusting. All solved after one regular shampoo. 

    Maybe it works for some people and not others? I’m hesitant to try it after her experience!

    I wouldn’t consider myself a no-pooer but I have been washing & condishioning my hair once a week for the past 2 years. There was a bit of a hurdle in the beginning but now I really get away with it. My hair is soft, healthy looking and only gets greasy on the last couple of days. It doesn’t have any smell (I ask my sister often!!)!

    Generally days 1-4 I can wear my hair down. 5-7 I have “greasy french braid” days. The funny thing is I get so many compliments on those days. I think to myself, “If they only knew!” LOL!!

    Vinegar is acetic acid and is a great household cleaner…so I fail to see how it would not strip your hair?!

    BTW The boar-bristle brush is really your saviour in the first couple of weeks. It shifts your oils from the roots to the tips effectively letting you get away with a couple extra days.

    I had a friend back home do it for a social experiment. For the first week or so, you couldn’t tell the difference. She was a young (early 20’s ish) female with long, straight-ish (It had a very slight wave in it) medium thickness hair. It was on the dark side.

    She used vinegar and something else (I can’t remember what it was) but after the first week, you could definitely smell it. She didn’t smell like a pickle, but have you ever smelled slightly too-old needs to be washed hair? That’s kind of how she smelled, mixed with vinegar.

    She was a very clean person so I doubt she was doing anything wrong, but looking at her and being in close proximity of her, you could tell. If you ever touched her hair, you knew right off the bat.

    I guess it works for some people, but it definitely didn’t work for her. Her social experiment lasted 5-6 weeks, I think.

    Yes I am on on that track. Although I’m black so I don’t know if it makes a difference. My hair is so much better. I found a sulfate free shampoo, but eventually I completely eliminated shampoo. I clean my hair with apple vinegar once a month or any time I have buildup or feel like my hair is oily.

    I haven’t used shampoo in five years or so. I use conditioner but not shampoo. It really depends on your hair type, but my scalp and hair are so healthy and feel sooo much better than before when I was using shampoo. I’ll try this vinegar thing, maybe!

    @Hyperventilate:  She probably did it wrong. You are supposed to deluded the vinegar with water. I also wouldn’t use it in the same amount or frequency as you use shampoo. You don’t put it directly on your head. I can’t smell it, and no one else has and my friends and family would tell me if they did.

    Haha, I thought you were going to say you can’t poo at your BF’s house or something!! Anyway, I could never do that!! I wash my hair almost every day! I have pretty fine hair and it gets oily really easily, but I’ve never dyed/processed it at all so it is really healthy. I exercise a lot so it would be a sweaty disgusting mess if I didn’t wash it daily. Works for me!!
