Ok, this is not what you think. What I’m talking about is the No Shampoo Movement. It seems that more folks are getting it. Chemicals are bad. Eating chemicals is bad. Putting chemicals on your body is bad. A lot of folks are looking for more natural ways to take care of themselves.
I just read an article on this shampoo-less method of personal hygiene. I also did a search for more articles on the subject. It seems that many people are doing this. So, starting today, I’m going to join these no-pooers & see how well this works.
The idea is to use baking soda instead of shampoo until your hair gets to the point that you don’t need to use anything but water! What you do is dissolve a few tablespoons of baking soda in an 8 oz cup of water. Pour it on & work it in. Or you can put the baking soda in the palm of your hand, add a little water to make a paste then work it in. Leave it in for a few minutes then rinse with water. . Next rinse your hair with a vinegar and water rinse (I’ve been using this rinse for years). You can rinse it out or leave it in.
They say that your hair will go through a transition period for a week or two. I would like to suggest that you use warm water to dissolve the baking soda and also for the vinegar rinse (unless you like the shock of cold water going down you back!).
And that’s no poo!
