No-Poo became a movement that ran wild throught the internets long before I even looked into jumping on board. No-Poo means no shampoo. Thats right chickas I have traded in my are reading it here in writing. And although I think it brings me a lot closer to my hippie insides that wasn't what led me to make the decision. I was actually experiencing a very bad bout of psoriasis on my scalp and I couldn't get it to go away. It was painful and annoying and my sister called it gross and I couldn't take it anymore so I went in search of a new hair frontier and I found something that just might work.

So I traded in my fancy overpriced yummy smelling hair elixirs and opted for water bottles fashioned into shampoo dispensers and I now make my own form of bath tub gin shampoo. Actually it is a slurry of baking soda and old fashioned H2O chased by an apple cider vinegar rinse. And i must say after 4 days my scalp already feels better. My hair seems a bit flat but not greasy. And word on the street says that my hair should bounce back in a week or two after all of the build up dissipates and my follicles readjust to the new routine.

Brians first comment was oh man now you are going to smell like a hippie:) Oh man hes so romantic.....Actually there is no smell at all and my hair is perfectly clean.

In reading I have read some pretty yucky things about conventional shampoo (which you can read about anything) and I am pretty excited to rid my body of the extra chemicals. In all actuality I avoid other packaged goods like the plague so why would I depend on a packaged shampoo?

I'll let you know how it goes....I may run back to Biolage or Redken like a pregnant woman running to the Krispy Kreme but only time will tell.

Anyone want to join me in the No-Poo Revolution. . . . . . .didn't think so.

We are seriously two peas in a pod. I have been doing this for a little while thanks to my friend who does hair. It's great for the kids too because it's tear free!!
