No Poo Week 2

I am still loving the no poo, Ill admit though, I thought I was going to have to shampoo my hair the other day. I used coconut oil on the tips because my hair was dry and had static cling bad. I had never done this before, so I just dipped my fingers in some oil and rubbed it in. Well, that was a little, ok a lot more oil than my hair could handle. I of course didnt notice, I did it in the kitchen while I was baking. I just put my hair up and went about baking for an hour then went and no poo'd as normal. I waited and waited for my hair to dry, seemed like it took a long time. Then I noticed it looked darker where the oil was, and then I noticed it was really dry, the oil just made it look wet. Oh no! I couldnt rebaking soda it, I was stuck, so I waited it out and wore my hair in a bun for two days until I could wash it again. It looked horribly greasy, but now its pretty awesome and I will know better next time about the oil. Are you trying or have you ever tried no poo? How did it work for you?


  1. Going "no poo" definitely has its scary moments where you are just about ready to throw in the towel...then one day its just wonderful! I still love being shampoo free! So glad you are sticking with it Erica!

  2. I was sticking with it until it got hot. When I sweat it smells like vinegar. What do you do to combat this? I loved my no pooness, my hair felt great. I switched back to shampoo temporarily :(
