In the 1800s it was recommended to wash hair once a month, by 1970 it was recommended daily. Over the decades, shampoos became gentler than ever, but they can be still harmful to our scalp health. The movement and hair challenge “No-Poo Shampoo” is knocking on our doors. Unfortunately, often shampooing can harm the sebum (natural oil) of our hair.
This “movement”, suggests we simplify our hair routine and create an alternative ritual for our hair. We can create a shampoo with 2 ingredients, baking soda, and water (some are using apple cider vinegar instead of water). You will not need to wash your hair daily, maybe once a week is enough, but in the beginning, people who are following the “no-poo shampoo” are saying that they needed to wash their hair often at the first 2-4 times per week, until the sebum and in general their scalp and hair health to come to a balanced level.
However, the movement says that baking soda cannot harm your hair, instead, it has the ability to release natural oils, and it will bring our hair back to its natural form.
No-Poo Shampoo? The New Hair Movement (& Challenge)
Why No Poo?
- Softer hair
- More volume
- Bouncier hair
- Less dandruff
- Less frizzy
- Less greasy
- Easier to manage
- Wash your hair with lukewarm water while you gentle massaging your scalp to release the excess oil and dirt.
- Take a bit of baking soda and mix it with a little bit of water or apple cider vinegar, until you have a nice smooth paste.
- Apply the mixture on your hair while you are massaging your scalp.
- Wash it with plenty of water. Finish with a little bit of cold water, if possible. The hot water at the end will dangle them and make them frizzy.
