NO POO: Day 36

3/27/12

Hey.

I know you all probably forgot who I am. You probably forgot what “no poo” means, too. And I’m sorry that I let you down, my devoted followers.

But……I haven’t had anything to write about. :O

See, after my disgustingly gross (not that bad, I’m overreacting) readjustment period, my hair snapped out of that funk SO FAST. Like, faster than a cat pouncing on a mouse. Or a roller coaster. Or NASCAR.

It was almost instantaneous. Like, my hair felt gross on Monday, 3/19, which was day 28. I realized I hadn’t washed with baking soda for a week and a day, so I scrubbed my head with baking soda. After that? Not even the slightest bit greasy. A week later (yesterday, day 25) I washed with baking soda again just for cleanliness’ sake, but my hair really could have gone longer without a wash. I’ve just been doing lemon juices every day and scrubbing my head under the running water. And it looks awesome. I can scrunch with mousse and let it air dry, and instead of being frizzy and poofy like before, it’s smooth and beachy-wavy. It’s super shiny, and silky soft. And it always feels awesome, even right at the roots.

People.

Go no poo. You will not regret it. I don’t even remember what it’s like to use shampoo.

I used to love thinking about no poo and I took great care making the baking soda paste, but now I don’t even use that as much. I do it without even having to think about it now. And every time I do it, it feels less and less strange, and more wonderful.ย 

Plus, my hair looks and feels the best it ever has. It’s been months since I’ve had a hair cut, but I hardly have any split ends.

I can’t wait to go home and tell my hairdresser, “Please don’t use shampoo on my hair, I don’t use it anymore” and see the look on her face. ๐Ÿ™‚

And ever since I started talking about no poo, people catch on. (Those people are very smart).

REMEMBER: You don’t have to do it for any reason other than looking good. But you’re going to save money, and you’re going to save the environment.

I did it to look good, and I do.ย 

I’ll write soon and post more pictures of my new hair!! ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Day 26

3/16/11

All I have to say to today is…..curly hair. :O

No poo definitely does enhance the natural texture of your hair. Curly hair people are going to have smoother curls. Fine hair will have more volume. Frizzy hair will lose its frizz and gain body.ย 

My hair is curly. I did hit the back of my hair with a curling iron (I have a spot in my hair that never curls -______- ), but I only made about 3 small curls in the back. You’ll be able to tell which ones haha, but the rest is natural. Check it out:

curly curly curly.

side view

....I wish my hair could look like this every day. Maybe it will. ๐Ÿ™‚

All I did today was wash with water, rinsed with lemon juice, and then scrunched it with some mousse. I haven’t washed with baking soda since day 21, so I’m definitely keeping my promise on extending the time between my washes ๐Ÿ™‚ OH, by the way, I didn’t post yesterday because I was very busy doing my sisters’ hair for musical. They’re inย Beauty and the Beast.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Jess, me, Sam, and Justin

Jess was a plate and Sam was a spoon ๐Ÿ™‚ I know they don’t look like it, but this is after everyone becomes “human again”, haha.ย 

I’m going bowling with Justin now so that’s enough for today. Make sure to keep following Nicole’s blog!! ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Days 23 & 24

DAY 23: 3/14/12… PI DAY!!

Justin took me to a Sabres game today, so I wanted my hair to look good. But I feltย really guiltyย washing it again, so I washed with just plain water, and then blow dried and straightened it. Now in my last post, I told you about the funky stage that my hair is going through. Well, let me just tell you-after I blow dried my hair, it feltย yucky. ย Really gross. It felt super oily, but since itย lookedย clean, I decided to just deal with it. I straightened my hair and brushed it quite a few times before we left the house, and this is what I ended up with:

sorry for the awful quality, this one was taken on my crappy phone ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m just glad that it didn’t look as gross as it felt haha. Anyways, the game was AWESOME, even though we lost in the shootout. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

DAY 24: 3/15/12

No poo continues to surprise me everyday, I swear. I woke up today, and my hair was less greasy than yesterday. Actually, it’s barely even greasy at all today. Which I’m okay with, because I really didn’t want to have to wash with water and style it all over again today. I brushed it and it looks great.

a little static-y today, but otherwise feels clean.

I have a little dandruff. I know. It's because I forgot my tea tree oil at school. Don't judge me.

Although my hair has definitely looked better, I know from reading other blogs that some people’s hair getsย reeeeeeeeeallyย gross during their readjustment period. So I’m considering myself lucky haha.

Remember to keep following Nicole’s blog!! And feel free to leave comments and ask questions ๐Ÿ™‚

Til tomorrow, my friends.

NO POO: Days 15-22

So I know that I haven’t written in awhile. I KNOW. But some big things have happened since I last wrote! I moved into a new dorm building (and am now living with Nicole!), taught my first lesson, and came home for spring break! So, I’m gonna fill you in on every day since I last wrote (some days don’t have pictures, I’m sorry!) and I promise I’ll keep better tabs on this blog from now on ๐Ÿ™‚

SO……drumroll please……

DAY 15: 3/6/12

So as of day 14, I hadn’t washed with baking soda since day 12 (3/3/12). By day 15, my hair was…..well, gross.

I am definitely hitting that "readjustment phase" that I was warning everyone about...

My. Hair. Was. So. Greasy.ย 

So I washed it. Now remember how I said I was going to try just washing once a week with baking soda? Well, this is the first time in my “no poo” experience that I have had just downright nasty hair. But I had been preparing myself for this day, so I calmly washed my hair and blow dried it. It looked fine, and I went about my life.

DAY 16: 3/7/12

My hair still felt and looked clean on day 16, so I didn’t do anything to it. Just brushed it and went to class. But something new and exciting happened today–Nicole’s cousin Haley sent Nicole some scented essential oils from a store in Ithaca. She got peppermint, lemongrass, and sweet orange. Needless to say, we were very excited that we could now make “scented poo”.

PS: If you aren’t following Nicole’s blog…..you should be. Click here to read ๐Ÿ™‚

DAY 17: 3/8/12

Day 17? My hair looked great still, but the next day I was supposed to give a presentation in one of my classes (about no poo, ironically) and I wanted my hair to look it’s best (so people didn’t think I was a dirty hippie). SO. I used only about half a teaspoon of baking soda (because I felt guilty after washing with only a day in between washes) and made the “poo” quite thin and watery, and when I got in the shower, I just dumped the stuff over my head. I massaged my scalp for at least two minutes, making sure it was as clean as it could be, and then rinsed with lemon juice. (side note: I added two drops of lemongrass oil to this “poo” mixture and it made my hair smell lovely!) I blow dried it that night, but held off on straightening it until I woke up in the morning, because sometimes I get lucky and don’t even need to straighten it!

DAY 18: 3/9/12–PRESENTATION DAY!

For our music ed class, we all had to teach the class a 5 to 7 minute lesson on anythingย except music. So naturally, I chose no poo. People seemed really thrown by it at first, but as I explained the process and how cheap it is (and how awesome it makes your hair look), people started asking more and more questions, and seemed less weirded out as time went on, haha. I did end up straightening the ends of my hair when I woke up, but that’s just because I had some kind of porcupine-looking thing going on with the back of my hair. Also, I’m noticing that my hair gets softer and softer every day…..IT’S SO SOFT, PEOPLE.

DAY 19: 3/10/12

My hair still looked good from yesterday, so I left it and just brushed it really well. The more you brush, the more you help to distribute your hair’s natural oils, so on the days I don’t wash, I brush it quite a few times a day. Plus, I just love how my hair feels right after I brush it, haha. Today was pretty boring, so I’ll move onto tomorrow.

DAY 20: 3/11/12

Now remember me telling you about how my hair has been much greasier lately? Well, this is all part of the readjustment phase. I just have to keep reminding myself that it will be better soon. But today, I came home from Justin’s to go to a baby shower, and my mom told me my hair looked disgusting. She was right. My hair is still in that chunk of time where it’s going to be overly greasy. I’m going to assume this is where many people quit no poo. PLEASE DON’T QUIT! If you go back to shampoo at this point, you will be so disappointed with how your hair looks, and it will be greasier than ever, haha. Just stick with it and things will get better. But anyways, to appease my mom (and to not have gross hair), I went and stuck my head under the sink and scrubbed my hair until the water. It definitely made a difference in the appearance of my hair, but it still felt sooo oily. At least it looked fine. ๐Ÿ˜› It was a really nice day on Sunday, so I twisted my bangs back and french braided my hair to keep it off my neck. Before I went to bed that night, I snapped 2 pictures:

my hair before I took it out of its french braid...

...and after.

As you can see in the after picture, my hair kinda got “stuck” in the braid that it had been in all day, and as a result, I ended up with kinda wavy, kinda gross hair. It definitely felt cleaner after I had stuck my head in the sink, but it was far from my ideal hair day.ย 

DAY 21: 3/12/12

Moments after I woke up today, I snapped some pictures of my gross hair (since my camera was still sitting on the counter from the night before. I was tired, okay? ๐Ÿ˜› )

ย 

I look so awake and happy -___-

my roots looked fine, but didn't feel like it.

My hair felt about the same as the day before, but I hadn’t washed since day 17 (and the was only a “half wash”) I decided to give it a good scrub. I made my “poo” as usual, but I forgot my tea tree oil at school. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ booooo Anyways, I scrubbed it real good and blow dried it, and this is what I got:

all clean! ๐Ÿ™‚

and this…

๐Ÿ™‚

Now even after I washed my hair, it felt really greasy. I just kept blow drying it, trying to ignore it, but it definitely felt waaaayyyyy more greasy than it ever does. But something strange happened. Within about two hours, that greasy feeling was gone, and my hair was SOOOO SOFFFFTTTTT. I couldn’t stop touching it.ย 

DAY 22: 3/13/12

And now, I am finally caught up on my no poo blog! Go me!ย 

Today I had observations to get done (for one of my teacher ed classes), so I got up and checked out my hair. It still looked and felt wonderful from yesterday, so all I did was straighten the ends and BAM! I was ready to go to the school. I can still tell that my hair feels greasier than normal, but I have faith that the readjustment period will be well worth it in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™‚

AS ALWAYS, feel free to write comments in the section below! Make sure you keep following Nicole‘s blog as she documents her journey through no poo. And again, I promise to better at writing these posts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun fact: this post has 1, 230 words and took me half an hour to write…if only writing papers for school were this easy!

NO POO: Day 14, and Brigid’s gone NO POO!!

3/5/12

SO today, you get to hear my dear friend Brigid’s no poo story!

I sent her some questions to answer for us, and I also have pictures of her progress so far ๐Ÿ™‚

Me: What was your hair care routine before no poo?
Brigid: My typical hair routine was usually, every other day. My hair is one of the lucky ones where I could usually go that second day, but it was usually back in a pony, or pinned back. Although when I had more time to go the gym, it would become daily..I was afraid of the grease.

Me: What was the total price of your hair care products before no poo?
Brigid: Oh god. Too much! haha I would probably spend anywhere from $15-30 monthly on hair care products. My hair is thick, and a medium length now, so I’ve always been used to that! I didn’t think any differently. It was worse when I was using shampoo/conditioner from Sallys Beauty!

Me: What is your routine now?ย 
Brigid: Today is day three. I have yet to wash since day 1. When I woke up this morning my hair felt a little greasy but it didn’t look THAT greasy..weird, right? Woo!
Okay, so my typical steps, now:
1. Mixing my baking soda with the tiniest amount of water in a little cup beforehand, along with a separate cup for my apple cider vinegar water mixture.
2. I researched this a bit before I hopped in. Using the spoon I used to mix, I scooped a bit into my hand for each section, and massaged in. I first massage the part of my head where a crown would typically go, then flipped my head over to get the back, and finished my massaging my temples, part line and hair line. I let everything soak in for a few minutes while continuing to massage my scalp.
3. Rinse! Its okay if it feels funny. Were used to suds.
4. Next I took my apple cider vinegar and water mixture, also in a little cup, and took the spoon I used with the baking soda mixture (rinsed first of course) and used it to have more of a precise location instead of just merely pouring it on in the hopes of not missing areas. I only rinsed my ends in this, but put a tiny bit on my scalp. I’m not sure if I’ll do that again, although I don’t think I had any adverse affects from it.
5. Rinse! again, it feels a bit off. BUT, it is okay!
6. I got out, got ready like usual, and then went in to dry my hair. It literally took HALF the time! I was amazed. My hair is thick remember, so a normal 15-20 minute dry with a little dampness was what I expected. This time, under 10minutes and completely dry! Say what?!
7. My hair looked marvelous day 1, so I didn’t straighten..but day 2 (due to a night time pony) I straightened, and it looked great again-maybe even better! Day 3, still looks good, no straightening or anything needed despite my pony I am currently sporting. I think i could get away with just rinsing before I go out tonight. I shall try! Heres hoping!

Me: What was the total price of your no poo supplies?
Brigid: FREE. My mother already had these products on hand at home; lucky me! Although, I think I will go out and get some lemon juice and tea tree oil. I don’t expect to spend anything beyond $6 at Walmart, and it sure will last a lot longer than a month!

Me: What changes have you noticed in your hair since you started no poo?
Brigid: My hair is slightly more static, but it had been that way for some unbenounced reason the last week before starting no poo. I also think I used a bit too much baking soda (debacle between adding too much water to the mix the first time!)
It is shinier. I have more control over it. It feels different, but not in a bad way, just different. It is super soft. The best thing though is of course: CLEANER LONGER!
Basically, overall I don’t know why I even waited to start this.

Me: What are some things you would like to accomplish with no poo? (longer time between washes, healthier hair, etc?)
Brigid: Yes, and yes. I would love to eventually get down to not doing any washes other than every 3-4 weeks or even at all, but I do think I would like to “condition” it every week or so, maybe two. I want it to stay as bold and beautiful as ever. Having a less processed body, which clearly now includes my hair/scalp is making my research more ways to do at home care for the fraction of the cost!ย 

Me: Lastly, would you recommend no poo to others?
Brigid: Heck ya! DO IT! You will not be sorry. I know people are skeptical and all, I was too, until someone I knew, B!, was doing it! If she and I, as well as her other friends can have fantastic results, and the thousands of people on the internet too, I’m sure you can as well!ย 

Brigid also says, “Thank you to Brianna for asking me to do this. I’m excited to see what doing “no poo” has in store for my hair, and what my hairdresser will say tonight when I go get my trim! I’m hoping my hair will look EVEN BETTER if that is even possible!”ย 

Brigid’s Day 3

So theres a bit of an adjustment..
Day 3 I only rinsed with water and apple cider vinegar. My hair was passable. (I forgot to take pictures until day 4, oops!) Take my word for it, it wasn’t my best hair day, but man oh man was it better than even a typical day 2 hair with “poo”. I’ll take it!

Brigid’s Day 4
Day 4 is not so hot. I didn’t shower-it was a lazy day at home, consisting of glasses wearing, and sweatpants while applying to jobs and setting up interviews..sooo, I let my head get grossly greasy looking. Oddly it doesn’t feel THAT bad, but it certainly doesn’t look all that appealing. I will see what tomorrow morning looks like..expecting it to be gross. Definitely showering tomorrow either way!

Brigid's roots, day 4

Brigid’s Day 4… and 1/2

Sooo, CLEARLY I am indecisive. Have you ever had one of those nights where you didn’t feel like that shower could wait until the morning despite the odd hour? Well, that was me. So I’m now present on Day 4 1/2.
I used the baking soda mixture-I adjusted it this time though, to two heaping teaspoons because my hair was full of static Day 1 post wash.
I followed my routine, and blow dried because I was too eager to see the results, and if I do say so myself, my hair is quite dashing (although, my face does not represent it). Look at those roots!

Brigid, day 4 1/2 post wash roots

ย 

Brigid’s Day 5

Heres at the end of Day 5..I straightened it this morning, and it still feels FAB.

Brigid with her hair all straightened ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoyed getting another take on no poo. Hopefully more of you decide to join me ๐Ÿ™‚

SO, as for me, it’s day 14 and I’m so settled into this routine. Every day my hair feels silkier and softer and I love it. The last time I washed my hair was Saturday (day 12), and today I wore it up just because I felt like it haha. I don’t have any pictures from today, but it’s just clean and pulled back in a ponytail, nothing too exciting. Tonight I’m going to wash with plain water and rinse with lemon juice, but that’s all I plan on doing. My new goal is to start going a full week between baking soda washes, so let’s see how I do ๐Ÿ™‚

DON’T FORGET TO KEEP FOLLOWING NICOLE! See you tomorrow, no poo-ers ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Days 11 & 12 & 13…whoops

3/5/12

I spent the weekend at home, and forgot to write! SO HERE WE ARE, writing about days 11, 12 and 13. ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 11: 3/1/12–Justin’s 21st birthday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Justin and his beer mug birthday cake ๐Ÿ™‚

My hair felt a little oily, but looked fine when I woke up, so I just left it.

moments after waking up on day 11

Day 12: 3/3/12– Day after….hair felt SO GROSS. Haha, I had drinks spilled in my hair at the party and I had highlighter alllll over my arms and face, so I took a nice long shower and washed my hair with baking soda and rinsed with lemon juice. It felt so nice and clean afterwards, and I let it air dry–IT WAS SO SOFT WHEN IT DRIED. Like silky soft. Which never happened before no poo. It would dry into a big frizz ball. But now it feels like egyptian cotton. I love it.

Day 13: 3/4/12–Hair was soft and curly this morning, and still to this point it feels perfectly clean and soft. I’m in love with how good my hair feels since yesterday. SO NICE. I’m gonna rinse with water and lemon juice when I get up and let it air dry again haha.

And since I forgot to take pictures for days 12 and 13, please just enjoy these pictures of Justin’s mom’s puppies ๐Ÿ™‚

Bella, the little brat ๐Ÿ™‚

BO. He's my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

Until tomorrow, my poo-less friends ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Day 10

3/1/12

Fun fact: Today is Justin Bieber’s 18th birthday.

And tomorrow is Justin (my boyfriend’s) 21st birthday!! ๐Ÿ™‚

IRONIC!

So anyways, it’s day 10, and this is what my hair looked like literally minutes after I woke up today. I didn’t brush it or anything:

LOL can you tell I just woke up?

ย I honestly could have left the room like this and no one would have noticed. But I love the feeling of freshly brushed hair. So I got dressed and brushed it out, and this is what it looks like now:

LOOKS FAB

ย And don’t forget about the roots:

sorry for the flyaways, hehe. also, why am I such a ginger?

Needless to say, NO POO is making my life so easy. And it’s making my fabulous hair even more fabulous. I’m hoping tomorrow I wake up with such awesome hair again, it’s Justin’s birthday and I wanna look goooooooooood. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a little summary of my fav things about no-poo so far:

  • Yes to tea tree oil. It makes the “poo” easier to manage and makes your scalp feel AWESOME.
  • It cuts my drying time down by 5 minutes, and my hair is more cooperative when styling.
  • All I have to do is brush my hair in the morning, and I’m set to go.
  • My hair is so shiny and voluminous!!
  • CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP.
ย So there you have it, people. Stay tuned, because this weekend I’m going to be doing a feature on my dear friend, Brigid, and her experiences with her first few days of no poo. ๐Ÿ™‚
Keep following Nicole’s progress here, and follow Lauren as well!! ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Day 9

2/29/12

Today is day 9. And as of yesterday, I have one “no poo” follower (besides Nicole)!! My RA from last semester started no poo yesterday. Hopefully soon I’ll start including interviews of people so you can get as much information about no poo as possible (and hopefully decide to join us!). My friend Lauren is also joining us, and she’ll be writing a blog about it, too! I’ll post the link here as soon as I know it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Nicole also convinced our friend Caitlyn to start, so pretty soon Nicole will be posting pictures from the two of them! You can follow their progress here at Nicole’s blog.

As of today, I haven’t washed my hair with anything except plain water since Saturday morning. My hair feels really oily today, but like I’ve explained before, it’s not how my hair usually feels when it’s oily. It looks kinda oily too, but I think that’s just because I’m due for a wash. The longer you wait between washes, the faster your transition to complete no-poo status will be. I’m convinced that I’m really starting to make progress with this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s what my hair looked like this morning:

ewww time for a wash

ewww

Today, I washed with tea tree “poo”, which I wrote about in my last post here. It’s supposed to stop the itchiness, so I hope it helps. I also tried lemon juice instead of vinegar, and let me tell you, it smells a hell of a lot better than vinegar when the hot water hits it haha. Let me tell you, I like this combination A LOT. The tea tree oil makes the “poo” feel so much better. I think the feeling of the plain baking soda paste is gross. It makes my hair feel kinda crunchy and grimy. But when I added the tea tree oil…

WOW!!

It made the “poo” spread a lot easier, and it almost felt like normal shampoo. When I rinsed it out, my hair felt softer in the water. Afterwards, I used the lemon juice, and it made my ends feel great. And the smell and feeling was better than the vinegar ๐Ÿ™‚ The tea tree oil made my scalp feel cool and tingly, and the menthol-like scent mixed with the lemon was nice ๐Ÿ™‚ And today is the best my hair has looked since we started no poo.

all clean ๐Ÿ™‚

my hair has never looked so good.

SO as you can see, I am very happy with no poo. In love, actually.

So is Nicole. Check her out here.

And so is Lauren! I found her blog. Click hereย ย to see her Day 1. ๐Ÿ™‚

TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

NO POO: Day 8

2/28/12

Writing the date just reminded me that my library books are due today…

ANYWAYS… Today’s day 8. If you read yesterday’s post from day 7, you’ll remember that yesterday my hair felt kinda greasy. Well when I woke up this morning, it feltย fine.ย It was the strangest thing. I expected to wake up and have even greasier hair, but when I woke up, it was nice and clean. I hadn’t touched my hair since Saturday morning, when I had just washed with water, and then blow-dried and straightened my hair. I could have rocked the 4th day hair today, but I was too lazy to find my shower cap, so I just washed with water today. My hair air-dried during my classes this morning, and it feels so soft and silky now. Which is a big improvement from what it used to feel like when it air-dried… (it turned into a big frizzball and felt like a brillo pad -____- )

Granted, today I just threw my hair into a bun on top of my head so I could keep it all inside my hood on the way to class, but it still feels awesome and my hair is much more cooperative. Here’s a picture today, even though you can’t really see my roots:

day 8 ๐Ÿ™‚

ย ALSO… Me and Nicole decided to go looking for essential oils to make our “poo” smell pretty, so we made a trip to Wal-Mart. I chose tea tree oil, because I’ve ย read about its anti-dandruff and anti-itch properties (and I’m blessed with dry, itchy skin all over my body. My head is no exception).

pure tea tree oil

ย I researched a little bit, and found that you use the tea tree oil along with the baking soda. Here’s the recipe:

1 Tbsp baking soda

2-3 drops pure tea tree oil

little bit o’water

Make your baking soda paste the same way, only use the tea tree oil as well. Easy enough, huh?

Nicole wanted peppermint so that her poo would smell minty fresh and also tingle her scalp, but Wal-Mart apparently only carries the tea tree oil. We found a container of pure coconut oil and she decided to try that instead. You can read about her coconut oil adventures at her blog here, as I think it’s a story she should tell herself ๐Ÿ™‚

So that’s all for today. Leave any questions you have in the comments section below! ๐Ÿ™‚

NO POO: Day 7

2/27/12

Today’s day 7, which means it has officially been one week of No Poo!

As you know, on Saturday morning, all I did was rinse my hair with plain water, and then did an apple cider vinegar rinse as well. I’m trying to see how long I can go between “washes” with baking soda, so today I was just going to “wash” with water again. Nicole has found that if you “wash” with plain water daily, you can go much longer between baking soda washes. We still use the lemon juice/vinegar every time we shower, though.ย 

Now I’ll be honest- today, I’m wearing third-day hair. I haven’t washed my hair with anything since Saturday morning. But to tell you the truth, it looks fine. It looks just like it normally does, but it definitely feels greasy. LET ME EXPLAIN. It feels greasy, but it’s different than the feeling you get when you use shampoo. When I used to use shampoo and my hair got greasy, it usually clung to my scalp, showing greasy roots and gross bangs. And it also smelled if I went too long between shampoos. But now, my hair feels just slightly greasy, but there is no smell and it still looks great. My roots look shiny like they are greasy, but they don’t look stringy and gross like greasy hair usually does. Me and Nicole decided that it’s just progress. ๐Ÿ™‚ Which is great news to me, because once your hair starts getting really greasy, it means that you’re almost to the end of the adjustment period. So now that the oiliness has started, it means my hair is starting to recalibrate and get used to no poo.ย 

HOORAY!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some pictures from today. I’m having a great hair day, if I do say so myself. Remember that I haven’t washed my hair in 3 days now, and it won’t get washed again until tomorrow morning.

roots and bangs are nice and clean ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™‚

So yeah, I love no poo. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to keep following Nicole’s progress!
