I started this experiment on a whim, I saw a blog post on the subject of ‘no poo’ and thought, that could be interesting, I’m gonna give that it a go and here I am 126 days later and I still haven’t washed my hair with shampoo!
It’s been quite difficult really as you have to find an alternative to shampoo that works best with you own hair type.
Oh and I also finally caved and dyed my hair and yes it was with horrible toxin filled, really bad for you, bottled stuff. I searched for alternative dyes but there doesn’t seem to be much out there (if you know of one please let me know) and a lot of products claim to be ‘all natural’ when in fact they are not, it’s confusing!
Update: I have found a natural shampoo called Tints of Nature. Read my Switching to Natural Hair Dye post.
The plan was to wait until the sun came out and just put lemon on my hair to bleach it but the sun is still yet to make a proper appearance and I got fed up of waiting. I also thought that perhaps the cassia obovata that I have been using might of lightened it a bit. It didn’t!
So there you have it my ‘no poo’ experience so far.
