Anyone else doing a real no poo? No baking soda, no water no nothing?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I have literally gone about 2 or 3 months without washing my hair. I keep saying I'm going to do it and find myself procrastinating about it. Washing my hair is a production and I'm avoiding it as long as possible. Anyone else doing a real no poo, no nothing, no baking soda or water on their hair and seeing good results?

I use Egg yolk, but my hair is protein sensitive. Egg is a strong protein so I cannot do that too often. I have ethnic hair.

Quoting Josie_P:

I use lemon juice or just baking soda and water. You can also use egg yolk with olive oil as a conditioner.

I really want to try the no poo thing but use baking soda and apple cider vinegar.  I don't think I can though.  If I don't wash my hair at least ever 3 days it gets incredibly itchy and start to look like it is separating.

Ummm.... Why is your hair so hard to wash? Its true that we shouldn't wash all the time. In the winter I wash one a week and blow dry then flat iron. But I think you need to wash you're hair unless you want to see dread locks soon!

I had a schedule of 3x weekly and then one day, I just missed a week, then another week until I got here.

The shampoo I use made my hair really itchy too :/ I was like wtf lol. I don't use lemon juice too much, only in the summer to lighten my hair.

it's long and thick and hard to comb :( I don't mean to be unsanitary, I just hate breaking combs.

I can't use the flat iron too often. My hair strands are fine. But when i wash, I have a lot of prep and after work. I pre-condish, then dryer, then wash, then deep condition again, then ACV rinse, then air dry a little, then blow dry, or fully air dry. Then I have to coat it with heat protectant, spray one, sit under the dryer again ..see I'm tired just writing it all out.
