Its been about 16 weeks since I stopped washing my hair. Most sites about going 'no poo' that I have read state that it takes around 6 weeks for your hair to regulate its oil supply. For me it took a little longer, but that doesn't mean that I had greasy, lank hair for that whole time- rather it was days of 'ponytail hair'.
I started out at first just rinsing with water every day and massaging my scalp, but I found that I ended up with dandruff. A month ago, I found that if I do a weekly baking soda and cider vinegar wash, my hair ends up looking even better and with little or no dandruff.
I'm glad I started, as its so nice not having to buy shampoo or conditioner and I don't have to worry about the chemicals I'm putting on my skin.
Baking Soda Wash:
1-2TB Baking soda
Add 1 cup water.
Apply the mixture to your hair- particularly at the roots, and massage in.
Cider Vinegar rinse:
1-2TB apple cider vinegar (I dont tend to measure, I just slosh it in)
Add 1 cup water
Work it in the same way as the baking soda and rinse completely.
|Healthy hair for the both of us!|
