I just read an article over on Crunchy Betty about the "No-Poo" movement that really has me thinking. I hate my hair. I have been trying to grow it out and it is finally at a length I like but I can not find a product that doesn't dry it out to no end. This article is about how she decided to go "no-poo", which means not washing with shampoo anymore. Did you know that until the late 1930's women didn't shampoo? Shampoo didn't exist! And they didn't wash their hair more than every 2 weeks! Could you imagine? I can't go more than one day! But this no-poo makes so much sense! The shampoos that we use strip our hair of the natural oils that need to be there. When the oils are stripped, our hair kind of goes crazy loading on the oil, which is where the greasy hair comes from. The way that the "no-poo" works is 2-3 times a week, you take 1 tablespoon of baking soda and dilute it in 1 cup of water. You squirt this over your head and rub it into the scalp only. Then rinse. You then follow it up with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted in 1-2 cups of water. This is the conditioner. This balances your PH levels in your hair. From what I have read, the first 7-9 days are the worst because your hair is getting back to your real normal. Then after that, you have gorgeous hair! Check out Crunchy Betty's Before and After in this post. Her hair looks amazing! And in between these shampoos, you wear a shower cap in the shower or you can just rinse with water. I'm seriously thinking of doing this just to see if my hair gets better! If you want to do it with me, let me know in the comments!
