No Poo Method
Just because something is modern and popular, doesn’t mean it’s the best option. Up until the late 1800s, people were recommended to wash their hair once a month. Decades later, the first synthetic shampoo was developed and that frequency increased to every two weeks, with daily shampooing becoming the norm by the 1970s. Shampoos on the market today might be gentler than past formulas, but they can still wreak havoc on your quest for a sexy mane. An underground movement has begun: the “No Poo Method” for shampoo free healthy hair.
Hair contains natural oil, called sebum in its follicles which is essential for keeping itself conditioned and healthy. Frequent washing, combined with some of the harsh chemicals in shampoo, strips away those oils leaving your hair in bad shape. So, how do you rid your hair of excess oil buildup from exercising, styling and daily life? Enter the “No Poo Method”.
The theory of “No Poo” is this: by washing hair with a gentle alternative to shampoo, such as baking soda and apple cider vinegar or even just water only, you’ll achieve clean hair without the damage or dependency on daily shampooing. So, in short, instead of allowing chemicals in shampoo to strip your hair, strip away the chemicals instead and stop using shampoo altogether. Most dermatologists and hair stylists have been long-time advocates of shampooing less often, and are crying hallelujah for this hair care revolution.

Why The No Poo Method is Great for Your Hair?
▪It is important to remember that your hair will go through an adjustment period when you start using the No Poo style of hair washing. AFTER your hair and scalp are back in balance, you can expect:
◦Easier to Style Hair
◦Less Oily Hair
◦Less Frizz and Fly-Aways (Great for curly hair ladies)
◦SAFE for Dyed Hair
◦GREAT for Grey Hair (commercial shampoos can cause grey hair to yellow – boo!)
◦FEWER hair washings, as your scalp will no longer be over producing oils
◦NO chemicals on your hair, scalp or washing down the drain (BONUS!)
◦MORE money in your pocket, because let’s face it, baking soda and vinegar cost pennies per wash (DOUBLE BONUS!)
◦NEW hair growth (for some people) This has worked for me, and my stylist has noticed too. I have tons of new growth coming in. My stylist says it’s because my scalp is healthier and my follicles are no longer clogged with oil and debris.
