Shampoo Alternatives

Shampoo can be pretty expensive and maybe more harmful to your hair than you think.

No poo is a term that means you don't use shampoo! At least the shampoo that you can buy in bottles at the store. No poo is a phenomenon that is sweeping the country. It's the idea that shampoo actually makes your skin produce more oil than it eliminates. No poo participants from say that they enjoy this method because shampoo is expensive, it upsets the natural body cycle, and it contains chemicals that hurt more than help the user. Click here to see more of the Instructables page on "no poo."

People who participate with no poo actually use a concoction of baking soda and vinegar as shampoo. The website I mentioned before has a recipe that tells you how to make your own no poo mixture with baking soda and apple cider vinegar as conditioner.

Here are some people who have participated in No Poo or Unpoo!
