Does anyone do the no poo method? If so how often do you go between washes? How does the transition stage work?

I'm going to do it starting tonight. I already bought the spray bottles and at the stuff I need. I plan on giving it 2 months. If My hair is still super oily and nasty by July I'm going to go back to my old stuff

Update 2. I LOVE IT!! Been doing it for a month and a half and my hair has never felt or looked better. Thanks everyone for the useful advice.

I've read many posts about it.  I don't do it because I can't get past the greasy stage.  Can't stand oily hair.  =/

I've done it - I think it depends on your hair type. I have a mess of kinky curly course, and wavy hair...the underside being the unruly side. I normally wash my hair every two days, I could go three in the winter. Which no poo method are you trying?? After all my attempts I tried Wen and I loved it. Then I got stupid and bleached my hair - ugh - waiting to grow it out a little more and then it's back to Wen.

 Baking soda and apple cider vin. My hair is super straight and not thin but not thick. the only issue I have with my hair is the split ends and friz. other then that completely managable, and I can go 3 days between washes with reg shamopp before it gets nasty. I also shed a lot but in mc someone told me that the sheding wont be as bad with the no poo. I told dh that and now he really wants me to try it, he says i shed worse then a dog, and hes right.

Just make sure to really rinse the baking soda - especially if you have dark hair, and use cool water after the vinegar. I hope you like it.

As for the comments re: greasy hair - this method is good for that. Baking soda helps to exfoliate your scalp and remove build up from your current products, which could be causing your oily hair. The vinegar is basically a neutralizer, and helps to bring back the natural body and shine to your hair.
