No poo has worked wonders for my hair. I use one tablespoon of baking soda, diluted in water. Put on hair and rinse. Then do the same with apple cider vinegar. Don’t mix the BS and vinegar because they neutralize each other.
I have super oily hair that is also mega curly (odd combo, I know). I’m also allergic to most shampoo and soaps. I will wash with no poo, dry and straighten every three days or so.
When I used shampoo, it would strip the oil from my hair causing my scalp to ramp up oil production. So gross. I wouldn’t wash every day either.
When I switched to no poo it was instantly better. I’m a bit perplexed at this list because it makes it seem like it takes forever to work. I got great results immediately.
I guess it won’t work for everyone. I’d recommend not washing everyday if you must use it.
Also, the smell isn’t bad from the vinegar. It rinses out and leaves no smell.
