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?

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.

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

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.

I tried the apple cider vinegar/water solution 3 weeks ago and found out my skin is extremely intolerant to it. I ended up with what looked like chemical burns down my back, my shoulders, my arms... My head still burns from it.

you have to make sure you dilute it with majority water.

I just started going "no poo" the last few days but I'm using baking soda and lemon juice. I can't stand the thought of not using ANYTHING at all to wash my hair. So far, I'm liking the results. I've heard about the dreaded "oily stage" but I'm not sure when that's supposed to occur.
