I’m 4 days and 2 washes into No Poo and was hoping for a little advice.
I tried No Poo having read about it a while ago and then being recommended it by my brother.
On his suggestion I’ve been washing with water and then using conditioner as normal - with the potential to try and cut out on the conditioner in the future. Reading some of the forum I may try rye flour in the future
Q1 - What are people’s thoughts on continuing to use normal commercial conditioner?
Q2 - People are talking about overcoming the grease build up in the initial weeks, but on day 4 my problem is an itchy scalp (even though I water washed and conditioned this morning), which I know will be worse tomorrow - what can I do to combat this? will it be gone in a week? - prior to no poo an itchy scalp was usually a sign I’d left it too long between washes.
Q3 - What about when your hair actually needs a clean? - e.g. after swimming in the pool (chlorine) or sea (salt), or you’ve done something like tough mudder and it’s full of mud. - I’m concerned water along wont do the trick for that.
I think that’s it for now. Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
