Water wash is icky but I tried this recipe with good results

Hi fellow no-pooers!

I’m on day 82 of my no poo journey & my future in this is looking up!
I was water washing about once per week & the results were horrendous. My hair was extra sticky, icky, & goopy. Yuck!!
This week I found this recipe & used it once on sunday & my hair has been wonderful since then without that dry/stripped feeling after baking soda.
It’s a new era for my hair!

Here’s the recipe:
3 tbps brown sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 3 drops lemmon essential oil, 1 tsp water. Mix together to form paste. Scrub into hair for 2 minutes, then let sit for 5 minutes & rinse with water.

I think it’s the closest my hair is going to get to having that post-shampoo look & feel without feeling stripped. Hope it helps!

Did I mention that I hate water washing?? All the scritching & preening does not solve anything.

Happy no-pooing!

Thanks! I wonder what the brown sugar is used for specifically. I’m out of lemon essential oil, but will have to try this out when I get some! :slight_smile:
