Hi everyone! I’m over two months into my “no poo” journey now and I’m still loving the experience - it has definitely been a very interesting process!
I’ve been doing water washes, occasionally with a bit of ACV, more often I add lemon juice to my water and some essential oils. I brush my hair regularly but I haven’t focused much on distributing the oils with my hands. For sure my hair has not looked ‘clean’ since my last time using shampoo but it has felt very moisturised from the natural oils!
The main problem for me has been dandruff! I suffered before anyway and I used to use Nizoral, which I read is not suitable for ‘no poo’ so I stopped. But it’s definitely been problematic. My scalp is super itchy and dry and I’ve had some red patches and even bleeding!!
I’ve read about a few different methods of treating it but I’m nervous to use baking soda or too much ACV as I’ve read it can dry your hair out, or that you can become dependent on it in the same way as shampoo!
But then I heard about Kefir! It made a lot of sense to me as an option, considering it’s probiotic content, so I’ve ordered some grains ands I’m planning to do kefir hair masks… What do you think??!
I also recently discovered the joy of using eggs! My hair is more clean and soft than it’s been my entire journey! I feel great about it but my question is… If egg is making my hair feel clean & soft, is it also removing natural oils like shampoo?? Is that the same problem? Heard a lot of different things about using eggs so I would love to know more!
