No poo simply means no shampoo. I've decided to start cleaning my hair without shampoo. And I tried it out today. It worked fine, so I'm very excited about it. We'll see how it goes.
Before you say "Ew, gross!" there are a few things you should know: my hair is clean, it does not stink, I did not slather my head in chemical-laden, overpriced, perfumed, water-based shampoo. Ok, now you can say gross.
The no poo method involves washing your hair with dissolved baking soda and using diluted apple cider vinegar. So, using the stuff I already have in my kitchen, in small amounts.
I'll try this out for a few weeks and give an update on the progress. And if it doesn't work out, I can always go back to my shampoo. I use solid shampoo from Lush (www.lushusa.com), so it's free of harsh chemicals, uses minimal packaging, and is condensed into a bar, so I'm not paying to have a bottle of water shipped across the country (shampoo is pretty much just water).
