no poo questions....

I'm trying no poo for the third time and for the first time I think I'm mostly through the transition phase. I'm having the same problem as before though - my hair is horribly static-y.  It gets this way every fall/winter and the only solution I've figured out is LOTS of conditioner, and even then I have to spray an anti-static on the collars of my clothes and often in my hairbrush too. Typical solutions like dryer sheets only work for short periods of time.

I'm not sure why I have this problem. We run a humidifier in the house over the winter, and it doesn't matter where I live, work, travel... it's always the same.

I've already tried honey in the ACV mix and coconut oil afterward, minimal change. I really want this to work... any other ideas??


I'm also wondering how often you wash with baking soda/ACV once you get through the transition?

I don't have static problems so I'm not sure what to do with that.  I heard people use bs/acv every 5 days.

I have tried and tried and no poo ends up with greasy mop

Me too :( I really don't know what to suggest for the static. I have only ever dealt with that in the very dry part of winter but not often. I hope you find a solution. Have you tried eggs in your hair? I have no clue if that will help

How often are you using baking soda and ACV? I noticed static when I was washing too often.

when getting through the transition phase you want to go as long between as possible. the longest I go is a week...also it could be because your mixture isnt right for your hair type and you may need to experiment with different amounts of each ingredients.
