The No 'Poo Method: How to Wash Your Hair WithOUT Shampoo!
By hhandtw on July 23, 2013
- Wet your hair thoroughly.
- Put a tbsp of baking soda in your hand. (just eyeball it, it's not science) Your hand should already be wet and the baking soda should start to dissolve.
- Push the baking soda toward your fingertips and massage it into your scalp. Thoroughly work the baking soda into your roots. I have a lot of hair so I have to periodically get more baking soda. Make sure you keep the mixture at the roots.
- Let this set in your hair for a minute or so. I like to wash my face or body while it sets.
- The mixture should no longer feel gritty. If it is not "slippery" feeling, try working it through with your fingertips a little more or letting it set for just a little longer. Once you get that "slippery" feeling, rinse. Thoroughly. Ever made a volcano? You do NOT want to mix the baking soda with the vinegar.
- After it is rinsed, spray in your apple cider vinegar. Focus on the length of your hair, you don't need this on your roots. (It will smell like you're dying Easter eggs while it's in your hair but there will be no smell at all once you rinse.)
- Rinse! Again, thoroughly.
I still have plenty of split ends but that's because I haven't had my hair cut in 3 years (yeah, you read that right). That's a whole other post for another day. But it looks worlds better than it did, I just didn't have the foresight to take a 'before' picture. It also cut out my need for any mousse/gel/hairspray or frizz serum. Those curls have no product in them whatsoever. Another way to save money.. Ch-ching!
