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?

...thats excessive. you are going to damage your hair doing all that crap.

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.

Quoting ABeautifulQadar:

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.

I only flat iron my hair 1x every 6 mths. I don't use heat on my hair often at all. My hair is the longest and thickest it's ever been in my adult life. It seems like a lot, but a Prepoo & Deep condition, ACV rinse are the only things  Icannot remove from my routine.

Ive tried every kind possible and they all dry out my hair and scalp... I have dove now but its not helping. I added olive oil treatments weekly which help with the itchy. And am down to washing once a week which helps a ton too but for the whole day and a half after washing I look like I have bugs from scratching so much

Quoting Josie_P:

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. 

Quoting Barronbaby:

Oh I love using olivw oil in my hair... so soft. I didnt know you coyld use lemon though. I was using baking soda..... I may try the lemon this week. I am trying to wean down shampoo and conditioner, it makes my hair way too dry and then itchy because it dries out my scalp



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.

Yeah I understand but you've gotta at least rinse with water I think

lol my hair is med length and thin.  However I have 3 daughters.  They are mixed.  Their hair comes down to almost there butt when wet.  It is super thick and curly.  I have had more than one comb snap in my hands.  I especially hate it when a thick shower comb snaps on my hands.  


Quoting Anonymous:

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

Quoting Anonymous:

i know how you feel.  I hate washing my hair.  


Quoting Anonymous:

I know I need to wash mine. I'm just being lazy.

Quoting Anonymous:

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.
