No 'poo, Day 15

Hair on no 'poo Day 15
Day 15

Looking pretty good, considering that I've had the flu for two weeks and chose not to get my hair wet Saturday and Sunday due to chills. Last water-only wash was Friday, and last baking soda wash/vinegar rinse was either Wednesday or Thursday.

This is a vast improvement over what I would have seen had I been shampooing and conditioning with my expensive store-bought potions. One day without treatment, and my hair would have been dull and lifeless. Three to four days, including no wash on two of them, and my hair would have been irredeemably greasy and stringy. Plus, my scalp would have itched so badly, I'd have found myself scratching almost uncontrollably.

Yes, it's showing the friz, but my hair has always done this, no matter what I put on it. The same is true after a pricey trip to the hair dresser. Twenty minutes from the salon, and the frizzles poke out no matter what goop they've used to tame them, so no complaints.

Have to say, I'm liking this baking soda, apple cider vinegar thing a lot.


Update 11/28/09: In case you missed it in 'Pooless! Day One, I'm using Babyslime's recipes and procedure.

So how do you do this? Did you leave a link that I missed?
