  • poll: What do you think of the No Poo Method?

    I Love it! never going back to regular shampoo and conditioner!

    I tried it, didn't like it.

    Ehh, I would MAYBE try it...

    No Shampoo?! Gross! No way. I love my shampoos.

    I'm a partial No-Pooer. I keep going back and forth.

    I haven’t transfered entirely to no shampoo, but once every couple of weeks I wash my hair with a paste of baking soda and water to strip out all of the oils and gunk normal shampoo, conditioner, and styling products leave in. It’s wonderful, and I would use it every day, but I’m worried about whether it would dry out my hair/scalp- I already have dandruff issues Embarassed. I also don’t like the idea of my hair smelling like vinegar.

     

    ETA: I didn’t vote in the poll. No option for me.

    Just a quick Public Service Announcement:

    DILUTED = thinned with water

    DELUDED = misguided, misled, fooled; mistakenly believing something contrary to reality

    They are pronounced the same in many dialects, but mean very different things!

    @beachchicbride:  I use bumble and bumble “Straight” shampoo – oddly it doesn’t do anything for straightness except reduces frizzies so its great to make nice curls.  I have the opposite of your hair – mine’s super curly on top and in the front and wavy underneath.  I try to wear it curly most days.

    I lo-poo or co-wash my wavy hair, but I can’t use baking soda or vinegar more than once a month (if that).  My hair is incredibly healthy and clean and way more wavy than before.  I currently am using the Acure shampoos and conditioners.  Might be  way to ease yourself in.  Baking soda can be VERY harsh on your hair since it ruffles the cuticle up.  The vinegar will help get you back to a normal PH, but some people find it drying as well.

    I tried. I really, really tried but just couldn’t do it. The transition peroid for me just never ended. My hair was either really dry or really greasy. I eventually gave up and was really bummed about it not working out for me.

    @beachchicbride:  I think it had a lot to do with how processed my hair is. I’ve been dying and frying for years. My hair is healthy and strong but needs a lot of deep conditioning to keep it that way. I currently do sulfate free shampoos and conditioners. I had a long adjustment peroid to that as well and honestly I don’t know if its much better or not. I feel like I have to wash my hair more frequently to keep it from looking greasy. I’m blonde and that doesn’t hide greasiness at all.

    I thought you were asking about using sulfate free shampoos. I’ve tried a variation of this and it didn’t work for me. I use sulfate free shampoo and natural conditioner from whole foods. I love them! If you’re trying to eliminate chemicals you use, that’s a great way to go. You don’t have to resort to vinegar and baking soda to be more health conscious.

    I do the curly girl method, so I do conditioner washes to clean my hair. I love it.

    @beachchicbride:  I just went back and read more of the responses. I have wavy/curly hair and I started out with the curly girl method like PP have mentioned. I started using devacurl products, which I really love, but the fragrance is too strong for me and it has a lot of chemicals. So I found more natural products to use instead. For shampoo I use one made by “beautiful curls” that you can find at whole foods. It lathers pretty much like a normal shampoo but it moisturizing and no sls. I use conditioner made by acure for dry hair (which smells amazing!). Also, beautiful curls has a leave in conditioner in their babies like that smells amazing and really helps me detangle/moisturize. I usually don’t use any styling products like gel because when my hair is moisturized enough I don’t need it and I don’t like a lot of hold. I’ve tried a LOT of products trying to find some I liked so I hope this helps!

    Grr I typed up this whole thing and lost it. Anyway, I either shampoo or no poo max once a week. If I get sweaty I just rinse with water. I am always getting compliments on my hair. I bet the ladies at the bridal fair this weekend would have been amazed if I told them I was on day 9! If youmshampoo daily, cut back slowly, so you dont have the nastiness to deal with (1x day to every oither, to everty third., etc as it doesnt get greasy). If you cook something stinky, you may need a no poo wash, otherwise if it smells a little of just a rinse should work. Took a pic of my hair but its way too big and sideways, let me try to fix it and I’ll be back
