Ok, ok I know. I didn't make it! I tried to keep an open mind and think positively about this! I made it three weeks, then broke down and pulled out the shampoo. This method just didn't work for me. Here is why...
My hair seemed to feel brittle and I assume that was due to the baking soda. When washing my hair I like it to feel smooth and silky, not brittle and dull. The combination of the baking soda and vinegar just didn't cut it for me personally. It just didn't really feel clean, and way too much hair was breaking off!
I do like the fact that baking soda does deep clean hair and help remove excess product, so I will still use it once or twice a week in addition to my shampoo. Coconut oil will still remain a huge part in my hair care. It does some amazing things! I also use Cholesterol as an additional deep conditioner and love the effects of that as well.
I use the coconut oil and Cholesterol as a pre-wash deep conditioner. After that has time to soak in I shampoo. I will add in the baking soda to remove extra product once a week. Coconut oil helps coat hair naturally so the shampoo won't damage hair nearly as much and will also prevent breakage. I will follow with my usual conditioner, then style as usual.
What are your thoughts on this? Did you, or do you still use the "No poo" method or do you prefer regular shampoo? Do you deep condition or use baking soda to help in the shampoo process? I hope you are all having a fabulous day!
