 It looks nice. What do you use in the place of shampoo?

I use a baking sode/water mixture to wash my scalp. And an apple cider vinegar/water mixture to condition my hair. : )

I totally didn't get this post, I thought you were posting about another kind of poo! Didn't realize you didn't have a "p" on the end of "poo"!

How greasy does hair usually get during transition? I want to do no poo but my hair looks like a greasy mess after one night of not washing.

I've been "no-poo" for 10 months.  Good so far.

This link explains the process. Store bought shampoos strip your hair of the hair's natural protective oils. To compensate for that, the follicles make more oil. This causes an vicious cycle. Washing your hair without these chemicals makes your hair softer, less greasy and more balanced. : ) If you poo, you can "wean"yourself off it it by using it every other day for a couple of weeks and just reduce it to every three days. Then, start no poo. : )
