I've just discovered a blog called Simple Mom which I already heart big time. Here are instructions on making the transition to shampoo and conditioner free hair. This natural living hair trend is known as 'poo free. You can wash your hair with baking soda and then rinse with apple cider vinegar or lemon. It sounds totally do-able, so I'm going to try this out and let you know how I get on. I relish the thought of no more shampoos and conditioners, because the natural ones don't tame my hair as much as I'd like them to and whichever shampoo I use, I find that my hair becomes oily and in a real need of a wash within 48 hours.
If you're breaking a sweat daily then it's hard to resist washing all the sweat out afterwards, so finding an alternative to dirty chemicals is a tres good idea.
You will find excellent information here on why 'poo isn't doing you any favours and lots of tips on the natural method including herbal remedies and natural styling ideas. Love it.
Are you up for this challenge? Do you have any naturally beautiful hair tips to share?
Update: I tried this a few times and my hair looked OK, but it didn't feel clean and it was very light so that my layers weren't hanging as heavily as I'd like them to. I had a hot date to prepare for, so I kinda had to give up. Maybe I'll try again if I move into a commune where everyone focuses on, like, what's on the inside.
