It's not that I haven't washed my hair, I have just gone shampoo-free and used more prehistoric ingredients: water and baking soda.
After one month
After the second month:
|Ooh-er, somebody needs a haircut|
I'd seen posts about "shampoo-free" all over the internet and I was skeptical whether I'd get grossly greasy hair? I'm actually surprised how well this new formula works for me. Because I'm frugal and because it's chemical free, I am going to keep it up. Here is what I wash with:
SHAMPOO: 3 parts water to 1 part baking soda. Shake up in a jar or plastic bottle. Obviously it doesn't lather, so just rub it in then wash it off.
CONDITIONER: 6 parts water to one part apple cider vinegar. (Yeah, my head smelled a little like salad viniagrette until I got the mix just right.)
I "shampoo" every third day. I have pretty dry hair to begin with, flat as a pancake. I have seen "success" with all different hair types on the internet, so if you're curious, give it a try!
What I haven't found yet is a method to stop all these wiry grey hairs from sprouting on my head. I'll go to sleep at night and the next morning there will be a nine-foot long grey hair that wasn't there the night before. Scary. Is my chin next?
