I Like 'poo

I read a few articles online about no 'poo people, who don't use shampoo. Some of them go months without shampooing their hair, using combinations of baking soda, vinegar, essential oils and other products to keep their hair fresh. They all said their hair was shinier, bouncier and overall better than before.

I don't see myself going months without washing my hair, but many people said they cut down to just a few times a week, and in addition to shiny bounciness, they don't have dandruff. Most of them do condition every day. So today I thought I would try it and not shampoo my hair. I conditioned and massaged my scalp as recommended.

Any my hair is not shiny. Or bouncy. Or in any way more beautiful. It looks dirty, especially as the day goes on, and it feels terrible. The article said it might take a few days for your scalp to adjust, but I'm just not going to make it. I may occasionally have flat, dull hair and a flaky scalp, but it's not as bad as this.


  1. I a rare 'pooer! I use a 2-in-1 as shampoo once every 2 weeks or so, and conditioner every day. Daily shampooing is very, very drying for my hair. If yours is as fine as it looks, you're at the opposite end of the oily/dry spectrum from me, and your hair requires the 'poo to keep it from going all greasy.

  2. I dont poo every day either. It is really horrid on my frizzy hair.

    I poo usually every other day because my head gets sweaty and gross when I run and I just cant let it go at that point.
