I had a comment asking about my No Poo Experiment, so I thought I would update y’all.
I received the question yesterday, so maybe it’s no co-incidence that it was the day BEFORE yesterday that I shampooed….(gasp!) In the interest of keepin’-it-real, I knew I’d have to update my blog post anyway.
Two things happened…
#1 – the static is driving me CRAZY.
My hair is too long right now anyways, and even with shampoo and conditioner, when it is -40 with windchill, my hair will always be static-y. For a few days, I had been considering using some products ‘just to see’, but I really knew that it would be the same, no matter what, so I resisted my urge to go mainstream with products again.
#2 – I colored my hair.
I do not know of any good options to do this, other than to go completely grey, and I’m just not ready for that….so I colored.
After 4 or 5 days, my hair/head just continued to STINK. I could smell hair color every time I moved my head…and it wasn’t just the ‘freshly colored’ smell, it was kind of taking on the odor of ‘cradle cap’, if you’ve ever had a baby with that…..I really felt like I needed to do something.
Unfortunately, it is the week before Christmas, and I just don’t have time to research all my holistic options…and I will!….so I pulled out my Garnier Fructis and lathered up.
The second day, my hair/head stinks less, but it’s still there….I think I’ll shampoo once more, but then I’ll get right back to the Baking Soda / Apple Cider vinegar and keep going…
…and I was right…the static is just as bad even with shampoo and conditioner. Fine hair like mine just can’t handle this dry air…..a haircut might help.
Any other suggestions?
