Ever heard of the “no poo method”? I heard about it a few years ago and finally decided to try it! I’m so tired of trying millions of different shampoos, conditioners and treatments. The no poo method is saying goodbye to regular shampoo and conditioner and switching to an all natural method. Shampoos and conditioners have so many harsh chemicals that absorb straight into your scalp with each use, including but not limited to sodium sulfate, polysorbates, and glycol. After researching these chemicals, I found many could increase the chance of cancer. I knew now more than ever that I wanted to go no poo.
Of all the natural shampoo and conditioners I have tried this method has been the best and easiest. Best part is it’s so cheap!!! Since it’s only a two ingredient method, it will cost you under $10 for a few months supply or more depending on how often you wash your hair. All you need is baking soda, apple cider vinegar (which I love for so many reasons) and two squeeze bottles. Always try to use organic when you can.
I add 1 Tbsp of baking soda to the bottle and fill the rest with water. Mix until the baking soda is dissolved (I just shake the bottle). And you have shampoo!! Apply, scrub, and rinse. Viola!
For the “conditioner” I fill the bottle with 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar and the rest water. If you can’t stand the smell you can add your favorite essential oil. Apple cider vinegar has so many GREAT uses, I buy that stuff by the gallon (but more on that later).
If you like to use leave in conditioner you can use coconut oil as a replacement. Add a little at a time since it can make your hair very greasy.
There you have it! Now go throw out your shampoo and conditioner.
