No (Sham) Poo Update

So! It’s been 2 months since I quit shampooing my hair. Verdict… I love it! I can’t say that I don’t get greasy hair but I’m learning how to hide it.

I usually shower and “wash” my hair every 4-5 days – I scrub my roots just with water, and then I do a Keratin Treatment followed by conditioner. I know people that don’t shampoo typically don’t use conditioner either, but my hair is very dry and fragile from lightening my ends so I really need the extra moisture, help to repair those strands, and to get those tangles out without ripping half my head of hair out. 

After the shower I spray Keratin Oil on my ends and let it air dry. Once its dry it is acutally kind of scary because the roots still look wet…. I apply dry shampoo to my roots – lifting up the hair on either side of my part and spraying it underneath then rubbing and brushing it in until it is completely absorbed. I only have to do dry shampoo the first day after washing and then I’m usually good for the rest of the 4-5 days. 

I have definitely noticed that my hair is growing way faster these past two months, and that is the main reason I am doing this. Because I want my hair to be healthy enough to growwwww long! So I am definitely going to keep up with the no shampoo.

    dont you love the looks of people when you say that you dont use shampoo.

    "wait, you DON'T use shampoo???" *turns up nose*

    I tried to coconut oil my hair, and it took me a couple days and constant rinsing to actually get it all mostly out of my hair.

    Hi Bethany! I too am on a no-poo journey and found an awesome shampoo if you're interested in trying something other than baking soda. It's called Morocco Method and their shampoos are raw, vegan, gluten-free and color safe. I find that they are gentler on the hair while still great at cleansing. I wasn't sure if you heard of them before so I thought I'd give you a heads up! This is their link: https://www.morroccomethod.com/raw-store/shampoos
