No Poo

baking sodaI decided to try this “No Poo” challenge and try the shampoo alternatives recipes for hair washing that are suggested. I started Friday, August 13th. I broke down Wednesday and washed my hair with shampoo. I had put a couple of drops of essential oil in the vinegar rinse and I think that made my hair really greasy. However, I found it didn’t really make my hair less greasy with the shampoo, so I am back to my No Poo solutions. There is a “transition stage” that my hair has been going through. I have noticed that if you want to go “no poo” then you have to stop all hair products…no smothers, straighteners, or hair spray. I had been using Recipe #2 below for 4 days. I washed my hair with Recipe #2 on days 1, 2, and 4.

Even if you do not want to stop using your current hair products, I feel having these recipes around for emergency preparedness is important.


Baking Soda and Vinegar Rinse Recipe #2– I use an applicator bottle like the one listed in the left sidebar to mix my baking soda and vinegar recipes. I store them in the shower and only mix up the recipes once every couple weeks.

Eggs Recipe – I do not want to waste eggs on my hair, but I have heard it is a good conditioner.

I thought this post was interesting called “To Poo or Not to Poo…that is the Question.” Personally, I am not a “go green” kind of girl who thinks everything will kill us. However, I am conscious that things I put on or in my body do effect how I feel. Nayna and I have been dealing with Fibromyalgia Syndrome our entire lives. When I went back to coloring my hair I felt fine at first, but now coloring my hair is making me sick again. I thought that changing types of hair color (semi-permanent and natural hair colors) would do the trick. But, here I am a year later and my bones and joints ache like crazy. I can hardly function some days. I’m still researching ways to color my hair like the Egyptians did.
