I didn't know this blog still existed, I thought that I had deleted it a long time ago. Oh well!
(I deleted all the other posts from a year ago since I didn't feel like keeping them, a new start is good.)
I felt like I needed to keep a blog about my hair since I started the no 'poo method a little more than a week ago so I need to keep track about what is happening with my hair and what works for my hair.
The first no 'poo wash I did was with baking soda as shampoo and honey as conditioner, it worked really well my hair got clean and that was the idea so hooray. Though I didn't feel as many others felt the first time they stopped using shampoo, that my hair felt immediately soft and "wow my hair has never felt better". I felt like "Yep my hair is clean, cool beans" mainly because my hair is so damaged from bleaching and heating and hair products, so my hair is very dry naturally.
Though that will change since I now felt like I wanted my hair and body to go vegan and rely on natural care.
Right know my hair is in the middle of detoxing and it hasn't been bad at all, after the first wash my hair didn't feel dirty until after three days, and then on the fourth day i put in some coconut oil and then tried to wash it out, but it's hard to was out oil with baking soda so i borrowed my dads girlfriends 100% vegan organic shampoo, and I checked the ingredients before I used it and yes it was very much organic.
So after the second wash my hair didn't need any washing until four days, well i accidentally had too much oil in my lengths so i just put in some potato flour since we didn't have any cornstarch, it worked brilliantly so that was the main reason for washing it after four days, my roots could have gone much longer since the roots weren't that oily at all.
The third wash I had was on thursday December 5th and I plan on washing my hair tomorrow otherwise it will be unbearable on monday when I have school.
Since my hair is so damaged it takes about six hours to air dry, so I need to plan ahead when I should wash it.
I really like the no 'poo method I think that it's something I won't regret doing, really how can you regret taking care of your hair and body.
I plan on using the baking soda and apple cider vinegar (or honey) washing method 'til the end of the year and the purchase a shampoo bar, just so I know my hair has gotten rid of all the toxins and I then can experiment and see what works with my hair, also there are so many different shampoo bars for different hair needs. Brilliant!
Wow what a long post!
