Going no poo

Any experience with shampoo-free life? I'm currently in month 4 and it's amazing. I haven't experienced any cons, although it may be a bit easier for me as I buzz my hair every 2-3 days. I don't use anything besides water, not even a soap or baking soda. I've recently switched to cold showers as well and I can't complain about it either.

Re: Going no poo

You don't need shampoo, but that may depend on your scalp (dandruff shampoo) or overall hair quality or overall hair texture

Maybe someone with long hair can tell me otherwise though

Re: Going no poo

Hm, no I've never tried this. I have very short hair at the moment so I might be willing to give it ago. Although I do have a bit of a dry scalp so maybe I would need some poo for that.

I've heard people saying similar things about facial cleansers, moisturisers and soaps as well...

I could never go completely without shampoo but for the last year I've tried to change my routin and only use shampoo every 4 days

and my hair looks and feels healthier & my ends aren't as dried out as they used to be But then again I don't have an oily scalp so that probably helps

Re: Going no poo

Vinegar rinses. Another than that, genuinely all natural shampoos.

BTW There's lots of articles on shampoo alternatives.

Re: Going no poo

If you have oily skin you need soap to get rid of the excess oil or you'll get scalp pimples and even hair loss. Not everyone can go without shampoo.

Shampoos, though, usually have chemicals in them that should be avoided like perfumes (which are hormone disruptors) and other phthalates.

Just do it. The worst thing possible is having greasy hair for few weeks. Big deal. Most people experience decrease in hair grease and dandruffs after 2-6 weeks. I have neither. Also, natural hair follicles produce real, i.e. better pheromones.

See above. Follicles produce natural oils, so your scalp won't be dry. Btw, you may have a dry scalp because you use too much hot water.

To be a life hacker, one needs guts besides other things, the quality sheeple don't possess.
