I use NO shampoo! And I love it!

I used to use more expensive drug store brands. My hair was blah. I switched to Bumble & Bumble, which was expensive enough that I started buying it in bulk online. My hair looked a lot better for awhile, but I had to wash it every day and still use a ton of products.

I started doing the “no ‘poo” thing almost a year ago and it’s GREAT. Once a week, I wash my hair with a baking soda solution (1/2 or 1 tsp baking soda + 1 cup water) followed by an apple cider vinegar rinse, and I rinse it with water every day. SO much healthier. And shinier. And fuller, and thicker.

Also: SO much cheaper. ๐Ÿ™‚

Loreal Sulfate Free Everstrong Shampoo. I love this stuff. My hair is always super soft and shiny. My super tangly hair is always easier to comb through.

@raevnn: If you use too much, it will irritate your scalp a lot, since it’s more basic than your skin. The way I do it is to get my hair slightly damp in the shower, splash some onto one part of my head and rub it in, then another part, etc., until I’ve covered my head (specifically… not the ends of your hair, unless you do something like fall in the mud. You just need to clean the skin and near the roots; for the rest, rinsing with water will do). You can use more water if you want, but I haven’t found it necessary. Then I rinse it out with water, then I take a handful of ACV (I think it’s probably about a third of a cup) and do the same, focusing again on the scalp to restore the pH balance (since ACV is slighlty more acidic). Then I rinse that part out, and YAY clean hair! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@spaniel: do you mix ACV with water? or just straight onto damp hair? p.s. thanks for posting about this! if this works I will be off of shampoo and conditioner for good…and hopefully getting rid of my shelves of product! what a waste of money if you an do this more natural route

and, what kind of ACV do you usually get – or just whatever’s at walmart lol

I use Tresseme. It’s the only Shampoo that does not make my hair oily or too dry. I washes really well and the conditioner is super moisterizing without making your hair oily. I love it because its not expensive and  its just pretty awesome. I’ve tried many shampoos and conditioners and its the only one that works for me.

@raevnn: No, just straight ACV; it’s already diluted in the bottle. When I read it in a natural remedies book, they kept saying “Organic Apple Cider Vinegar,” which they didn’t do for other ingredients, but I buy it at Trader Joe’s and it’s only a couple of bucks for a glass bottle that’s lasted me pretty much the whole time I’ve been doing this (and it’s still 1/3 full). I bet Wal-Mart has organic ACV, too. It took about 2 weeks for me to get the hang of it (first I was using too little baking soda, then too much, ouch!), but I will never use shampoo again after this “experiment”!

I just started using the new Aveeno line a few months ago and I absolutely love it.  My hair is alot softer and my curls are no longer frizzy messes.
