The No 'Poo Method changed my hair! I've been on this method almost a year, and I am so thankful I kissed shampoo goodbye! I have never loved my hair this much in my whole life. It is smooth, shiny, wavy, and has tons of body. No Poo Method: 1 to 2 tbsp baking soda in a jar of water, shake and pour over roots, then massage scalp well and rinse. Pour ACV/water mixture (1 to 2 tbsp ACV mixed in a bottle of water) over ends, rinse and Voila! I only wash my hair every 3 to 4 days on this method. ♥

What do YOU think? Would you try it? Have you tried it?

I have tried twice to do this. I cant get past the "super oily" stage when your body is regulating the lack of need to produce as much oil. I get to day 5 or 6 and I cant stand it anymore.

It took my hair months to adjust... I just used baby powder on oily days as a "dry shampoo", to help stretch the days between washings. But now I just go ahead and wash when it's too oily. Every third day is the usual for me and it seems to work well.

I did it for almost a year.  Just went back to shampoo and conditioner about 2 weeks ago.

My hair was fine with the no-poo method but recently my scalp has been getting dry and dandruffy and using coconut oil wasn't working so I reverted back to my previous ways.

Your hair is beautiful.

There is no way I could ever do this.  I don't have the patience to wait out oily hair and hate putting baby powder on it.

I will continue with my Pantene, and if that makes me bad, then baby, I'm bad....

I really want to try this...I only wash my hair every three days now because it just isn't very oily and it looks terribly dry after I use shampoo even with heavy conditioners. I color treat and it gets very very dry.

What, exactly is the ACV mixture? What does ACV stand for?

ACV = Apple cider vinegar.

White vinegar worked better for my hair.  I used approx. 1 T. of vinegar to a cup of water when I used it.  You can increase/decrease the amount of vinegar depending on how it works for you.

I use a sulfate free shampoo on my scalp and a sulfate free conditioner on my hair once, sometimes twice a week. I've wanted to try the no poo method but I just can't get past putting acv in my hair - I can't stand that smell lol
