Don't Need No 'Poo - 4 week update!


It's official. I've been off 'Poo for 4 straight weeks. Things are going pretty well. I've been conditioning twice weekly with Burts Bees Conditioner and doing a vinegar wash twice a week as well.. Did the baking soda things three times. I only really noticed results from that the last time, when my hair got really soft. Other observations are that my hair seems way more tame - its super easy to comb (I only combed it once this whole time, I had given up combing to reduce damage months ago), and that it goes straight fairly easy. Of course, this straightness is against what I would prefer, but I have some ideas...

Looking around more, I found a couple how-tos for going no 'poo. I also have perused, more thoroughly, this curly girl site and what they're all about. It's like a cult almost. I kind of feel like I'm not curly enough to be reading all about it. ANYWAY, they have some good stuff on there though. I think I will be trying this oil thing because it apparently moisturizes the curls and makes them happier. I also might try this brown sugar scrub thing.

I have been continuing to use styling products almost daily. It doesn't really stay curly without it. AND I'm going to try this plopping thing that the curly girl people talk about. That seems like it might work. Overall, I am fairly pleased but not like drop-dead sold on this no 'poo thing because nothing totally drastic has happened to my hair.

Well, I'm not sure about how it feels... but it certainly looks good... At least I wouldn't kick you out of bed for eating crackers...
