I haven’t updated on my shampoo-free experimentation. But I got a question via email recently, so thought I’d do a quick update.
I’m back to using an organic shampoo and natural-ish conditioner. I only use a teaspoon or so of the shampoo, and just on my roots, every other day . I had to take a break from the no-pooing, mostly because baking soda lightens my very dark hair. And, my hair is super greasy, and I haven’t found the baking soda/vinegar combo that really gets it clean. I’m sure I could if I stuck with it, but enter the hair lightening factor, and I needed a break.
Have you gone no poo? What’s your experience? Any fellow dark, wavy-haired greasies want to share how it works for you? (As a side note, I’m tired of reading about how people with wavy and curly hair have drier hair, so they have to wash less often, and never should use shampoo. I have very wavy hair, but a very greasy scalp. Am I just a freak of nature?)
