Two months without shampoo!

Oh, people keep asking me if I am still on no 'poo (no shampoo). Yes I am. I have been shampoo free for two months now. I am still washing my hair, only not with shampoo but with baking soda and apple vinegar rinse a couple of times a week and sometimes with plain water in between. After a short adjustment period I didn't have to wash so often, my hair got used to the more infrequent washing. And the BC/ACV wash doesn't have any suspicious, possibly cancer causing ingredients that some shampoos have. My hair looks nice, it is soft and shiny and the best part: my itchy scalp is gone. I could go to a no 'poo commercial. I will add a photo soon.

Look also my previous postings about the experiment from here.

I am now rinsing with few drops of tea tree oil in water. I love the tingling it provides.

Bethany, that is nice to know! I also add tea tree oil sometimes to the vinegar rinse. I met today at the health food store another member of the group and she said she tried rinsing with regular vinegar for a while and it wasn't as good as apple cider vinegar so I think that is interesting information. I have used ACV until now. I have heard that the regular vinegar might be good in getting rid of dandruff by using it before the BS wash.

I have a question - can you do the no 'poo method if you color treat or highlight your hair?

Anna, I think you can go no poo even if you color your hair. Read more about it from here: http://babyslime.livejournal.com/174054.html#gel
