I have gone one entire year without using shampoo! I wrote about it last December, after I’d been without shampoo for 3 months. That article was called “A Non-Toxic, Frugal Way To Wash Your Hair Without Buying Shampoo, ” and it has been the most popular article on this blog for many months! Thousands upon thousands of people have visited the article, many have commented or emailed. A few months later, I wrote a revised method called “No ‘Poo: New & Improved!” and that is currently the sixth most popular article here, with several thousands more people reading it.
I know several of my co-workers have started going no ‘poo as well – one has been no ‘poo for about 9 months now, and he loves it. It’s a good feeling, knowing that I’ve helped others a little bit along the way!
How do I like it? I LOVE it. It’s my new normal. A few times here and there I’ve added a bit of hand-made soap to the baking soda for a little wash, but I haven’t needed nor wanted to try shampoo again!
Sorry about the pictures – I should know better than to try to take photos of myself with a cell phone camera under florescent lights. But I wanted you all to see my hair before I cut it, because I haven’t cut it since I stopped using shampoo! Now it’s time, though, it’s just getting too long.
But there you have it, folks. One year, no shampoo!
