Well, I've been putting it off for two weeks now. Look now at my hair, freshly washed and conditioned. I am getting out on a limb and I've made a family announcement: I am going to quit the shampoo and do what is called "no-poo".What?
No, it has nothing to do with poo (I've defiantly changed my share of diapers) like I thought at first. It is cleaning your hair without the Sham. I will be using baking soda to clean my hair.
Will it work?
Will my scalp itch like the Dickens?
Will my hair look the same?
Will I look gross for two weeks until the clarifying process is complete?
Keep posted as I give this a chance, but I don't promise lovely pictures with tidy backgrounds. This is real. Actually I picked this time because I know that I won't be coming to church for two weeks, as I understand it can take that long or longer for your hair to adjust. My sister made me promise to take close-ups at the back of my head to get the full effect. She would, wouldn't she.
I consider myself a good candidate for this experiment. I have average hair, it's average in length, thickness and color. There is some wave, not a lot, so two days after a washing my hair is flat and limp. ALSO...on the health side I am a firm believer that shampoo is full of toxins and I massage them into my scalp twice a week! Sure, I could go for the expensive brands with out the soduim laureth sulfate and other unpronounceable goodies, but, when there is a frugal solution, I say go for it! I'm always game to try these things.
