If you have done no shampoo for AT LEAST A YEAR 

have you found that going no-poo has helpd your hair grow faster, slowed it, or noticed no change? And what is your no poo routine? 

I recently went no poo because i want to get my natural curl back but im also trying to grow my hair out to make historical reenactment easier (i have a mohawk :( ) and i want to make sure its not hurting my hair growth

I couldn't do that. I used to straighten my hair and let it go a few days but if I wear it curly, it gets greasy by the second day.

Quoting TinkTink205: I couldn't do that. I used to straighten my hair and let it go a few days but if I wear it curly, it gets greasy by the second day.

that is the point of no poo. Washing your hair actually causes oiliness. Your body can regulate your hair oil but when you dry it out and strip it it over produces oils causing oily hair. Its a similar issue with your skin. There is a period of having oily hair (i wash with baking soda and vinegar once every two weeks at this point to wean myself) but once you are passed the part of adjustment your scalp produces the right amount of oil and you have more vibrant, healthy hair and scalp.

Oh. You still wash your hair, you just don't use shampoo. Lol! Misunderstood.

Never thought about using something other than shampoo.

I went from baking soda and vinegar washes to using dreadlock shampoo once a week, and a soak once a month and that's been great for me. I've dome that for 4 years now and my hair grows extremely fast.

not using shampoo on your hair does not mean not washing it. I wash my hair, but not with shampoo.

Do you have dreadlocks or just chose to use the shampoo? And what do you you mean by doing a soak, what are you soaking your hair in? Thank you for your input!
