The no-poo method implies that washing the hair without shampoo is healthier, cheaper and makes the hair grow faster. Here’s how it’s done! No-poo method is a way of washing your hair without using shampoo. There are different variations to it, but the most popular is the one that uses baking soda and vinegar.
Why give up shampoo and conditioner
When you wash your hair normally, the shampoo – which is actually a detergent – removes all traces of dirt but also those of sebum. Therefore, your hair will be dry and you will feel the need to use a conditioner to replace the natural “oil” produced by your scalp, with an artificial one. Another effect that the shampoo has is drying the scalp. Therefore, dry skin, be it skin or scalp, will be trying to defend themselves and produce more sebum. This explains the fact that some people have very oily hair only one day after washing and often have to repeat the operation.
What happens when you use the no-poo method
Because it’s not reached by shampoo any longer, the hair keeps it’s sebum and the scalp is not irritated by chemicals anymore, so it doesn’t have the tendency to produce excessive sebum. You’ll notice that you can stay a few good days without washing your hair. And if you have normal or dry hair you can even wash it only once a week. The longer you will use the no-poo method, you will notice that your hair becomes softer, easier to comb and style, brighter, loops will be “calmer” and more defined. It seems that hair grows faster and obviously you will not need to spend so much money on expensive shampoos, masks and conditioners.
How to wash your hair without shampoo
1. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with a cup of water. Apply the solution on the scalp – there is no need to apply it on the entire length of the hair – and massage gently. Then leave a few minutes’ to act while you finish your showering.
2. Mix two tablespoons of vinegar to a cup of water. Ideally, you should have a bottle container to put the solution in. Once you have rinsed the bicarbonate and water paste, apply the solution of water and vinegar on hair length – not on the scalp. Let it work for a minute, then rinse thoroughly.
