No Poo?

January 08, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I guess the “No Poo” movement  has been around for a few years, but I only recently caught wind of it in one of my facebook groups and wanted to give it a try.  

The “No Poo” movement is really just eliminating commercial shampoo from your hair care routine.  It doesn’t mean not washing your hair, but is does mean replacing it with natural remedies.

The most common appears to be washing with a mix of baking soda and rinsing with vinegar.

January 6, 2013.  In the evening, I washed my hair with a mixture of 1 TBSP of Baking Powder Dissolved in 1 Cup of tapwater, and Rinsed with 1 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), in 1 Cup of Tap  Water, with a couple drops of an essential oil mixture.    I used the hotel’s travel cups for the mixture, and poured the baking soda on my head, massaged my scalp, let it set for a minute, then let the water run through my hair and added the vinegar rinse, massaged it in and let it set for a couple of minutes.

I was not sure what to expect.  The vinegar really did condition my hair and my hair had a lot of body when fully dry.

The next morning I went to work, my hair was just a tad dry, but looked good.  Right now I am in a very humid climate.

 After reading more information, it sounds like the next time I use baking soda, I will make it into a paste and work it into my scalp.  I may use less, because my hair felt just a tad bit dry.  Not sure the dryness is just not just the way my hair would feel without a coating of junk on it.

This morning, I skipped the Baking soda wash, and just used the ACV, with essential oil drop mix.  We will see.

Oh yeah.  Yesterday was the first day in 20+ years I went to a work or a client site without any makeup.  At first I was nervous, but know I feel FREE!
