How much do you spend each month for shampoo for just one person? If you have high-end taste you are probably spending about $56-$75 every 6-8 weeks on shampoo and conditioner. Shampoo and conditioner can really add up. The average family can easily spend $650 a year on shampoo and conditioner. Some families spend well over $1000 a year on higher-end shampoo and conditioner.
What if you didn’t have to buy shampoo or conditioner ever again? Are you thinking this sounds really gross? Probably.
Basically shampoo is a detergent that strips your hair to “clean” but also creates an unbalanced scalp. Have you ever wondered why your hair becomes greasy after a day or two? Your scalp is in over production mode and the oil glands produce at a rapid rate. Your hair might feel soft for a day or two, but after that it’s unmanageable and oily!
Facebook is such a great resource. Someone had posted an article about No Poo. Thinking it was about poo; it was a must click article, right? The article was about not using shampoo! Who would have thought?
For those of you who want to remove bad chemicals from your everyday regime; No Poo is a very good option. It takes about 3 washings or sometimes 4-6 weeks for your hair to adjust and balance out.
All you need is baking soda, a spray bottle or two, and organic raw apple cider vinegar. You may need to adjust, but this is a good starting point.
- Rub in about 1 tablespoon of baking soda to your wet scalp. Let the baking soda sit and soak into your scalp for about 1 minute. Your hair (scalp area only) should feel slippery. Once your hair feels slippery you should thoroughly rinse out the baking soda.
- Mix 2 tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water in a spray bottle.
- Spray the vinegar mix on the length of your hair (avoid your roots). Let this soak for about 1-3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
- Towel dry your hair and use a 100% boar bristle brush.
- Style as usual.
