Hi! I’m new to this forum, but not new to trying no/low poo methods. I currently use Renpure Tea Tree shampoo. but I only wash once or twice a week and feel that I could easily transition to a no poo method. My biggest issue I have is my scalp is dry and has dandruff pretty bad. No matter what I try the dryness stays and continues to itch. I am actually in need of a shower today, so it would be perfect timing to start this experiment/journey today.
I have tried the baking soda wash/acv rinse a few times. It works ok for the first few washes, and then my scalp goes super dry and itchy.
I have done low poo with washing with just a bar of Dr. Bronner’s soap and occasionally an acv rinse as a conditioning treatment. It worked great for a long time, and then my dry, itchy scalp and dandruff came back with a vengeance.
My latest attempts have been with using Renpure shampoo (I usually like using their Coconut Cream) and doing a coconut oil deep conditioning treatment once a month or so. This moisturizes everything and makes my hair super soft for a bit, but after the third or fourth wash after doing this my scalp is dry and itchy again.
I live in the city, so the water is hard here. I can easily get a shower filter from amazon though.
If anyone has any ideas of what I could try to get started on no poo that would be great!
