Today is the last day of week 3 of going no ‘poo. But if you would have told me it has been 3 years already since the last time I’d used shampoo, I would believe you too. I’m not missing it at all and it just feels like I’ve never been using shampoo anyway. So here’s a short update about me going no ‘poo:
Just used a spray bottle to make my hair damp. My hair was a bit greasy, but it was still OK enough to go out.
Washed my hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar. My hair had some beautiful curls in it and was really soft.
Decided to use clay powder instead of baking soda today. I either did it wrong or it’s just not suitable for my hair, but my hair was dry as straw and frizzy.
Just washed my hair with water only. My hair was still really dry and frizzy, so I decided to do a henna treatment with colorless henna. The henna smells and looks like crap, but it did wonders for my hair! I’ve put it in my hair, put over some foil and a towel and went over to the couch to relax. After 2 hours I went into the shower, rinsed all the henna out of my hair and now my hair is soft and curly again.
Made my hair a bit damp with the spray bottle. It looked fine, nothing special, no grease, only a bit frizzy, but still soft.
Washed my hair with water only. It still wasn’t greasy and after my hair dried it was really soft.
Again, washed my hair with only water. It still was looking OK when I woke up, so I didn’t felt the need to wash it with baking soda. My hair is a bit frizzy now, but I think that’s more likely because of the humid weather than because of not using shampoo.
If you’re not sure about going no ‘poo because you’re afraid your hair gets really greasy and horrible, here I have some tips for you:
- Braid your hair to cover up any greasiness
- Wear your hair in a ponytail
- Use a headband to get the hair out of your face and cover up some of the greasiness
- Put your hair in a bun
- If everything else fails; wear a hat or beanie or just wash your hair with baking soda
- And the most important tip: try not to care so much about what others think of you. You’re still pretty, even when you don’t use all kind of hair products
