No more shampoo

I didn't write about this yet but about 3 months ago a gave up shampoo and started using bicarb soda. I started out by making a paste in my hand with about 1 tablespoon of soda, added water to make a thick paste, rubbed it on my scalp and then rinsed. Super soft, clean hair but a warning..it takes about two weeks for your hair to adapt and within that time your hair tends to be fairly limp and flat, not very attractive. It wasn't a huge issue for me because I always have my hair in a ponytail. Now I have a small plastic bottle with the soda mixture, one part soda to four parts water, shake well before using. I used to wash my hair every day but now I can go two days and in the winter when I'm not outside all that much, three days.

Shiny clean hair..the orange??? Old hair dye I'm trying to grow out.

Wow, I think I might try that. I've taken to not washing my hair everyday and can now go 3 days without shampooing. I have natural curls and it's working out great. Hope you have a wonderful day.
