An Update on Shampoo-less

I posted this a week or so ago.

Thought I would share how things are going for me now.

I have finally found the magic mixture that works for me. 3 heaping spoonfuls of baking soda mixed with a little bit of water so that it turns into a soupy paste. Then I rub it in really good and then take a comb and comb through my hair. I have done that for the past 2 mornings and have had wonderful results.

I have not needed to use the vinegar rinse either. I think the tea tree oil in the rinse was what was making my hair look greasy. I have not been able to skip any days yet without my hair looking greasy but maybe now that I have found my magic amount it will be soon in coming.

My face has cleared up quite a bit around my hairline. I was hoping that would happen! Not sure if that is from me not using shampoo or from me using baking soda on my face as well. I am still not entirely acne free but my breakouts this past week have not been as bad as they were.

I am very happy with my results so far! I can't say it has not been tempting to use some of my old left over shampoo when I could not get the greasies to go away, but I stuck it out and I am glad I did!

I'm glad you're like the "no poo"! After finding the right amount for your hair, I think it works great!
