As you may no, I have been doing ” no “poo” which means no more store shampoos and conditioners and using baking soda and water instead, plus trying to wash my hair less and less to let the natural oils that our body provides to take care of my hair.
Does that mean I never used shampoo? No, if I put a lot of product in my hair for a “night out” I will use my baking soda mix with a very small amount of a natural shampoo and use that.
My biggest discovery, which I had to verify before I posted, is my hair is THICKER!! How did that happen? It didn’t happen overnight, I have been ‘no ‘pooin’ for a few years now, but I recently noticed that I actually have a pony tail when I put my hair up, and instead of having to twist my hair band 8 times to stay on, it only takes about 4, yes is my hair still thin, but it is thicker then before. Woo Hoo!
I think this is because I lose a lot LESS hair in the shower when I bath now, and my hair is growing in better. Are there other reasons? Maybe, but I am not a scientist, all I can tell you is that my hair is thicker, so if my hair can recover after decades of abuse, so can yours.
STOP buying shampoo, it strips the hair of its natural oils, then you have to Put them back IN with other products. Having a bad hair day, put it in a pony tail, up in clips, braids. Brush your hair 100 strokes every night, it takes the oils from the top and pulls them thru all your hair,
You win by spending less money, getting nice/thicker/stronger hair, save the environment – less plastic bottles.
