I have been wanting to try the “No Poo” method for years now but I’ve never been brave enough! However, now seems like the perfect time. I’m only about 2 and a half weeks into it and I’ve washed my hair twice: the first time with water only, and today I washed with water followed by an ACV rinse that I left in.
My hair has been extremely greasy and waxy feeling as I had expected, but I suppose I just wanted to know if i’m on the right lines. My hair is extremely dense/thick so massaging my scalp has been a challenge. I am concerned that after my second wash today with ACV my hair feels practically no different to how it felt prior to the wash in terms of oiliness. I was surprised after my initial water only wash that it did appear to be a bit cleaner? Maybe I should stick with water only? I’m not sure! Also I was suffering with some flakiness before trying “no poo” and i’m definitely noticing a build up (white residue on brush?). Should I purchase a wooden brush? Are there any particular treatments that might help me deal with this!
I am fully prepared for a challenging first few months but nonetheless any advice and tips would be much appreciated!
