I’m still going strong without shampoo. By the end of the first month I had decided that my hair always looked a little too greasy for my liking. It wasn’t greasy in a way that would make anyone look at me and think I was dirty, but I didn’t like it. I was rinsing my hair every day, but it didn’t seem to be enough.

Then I started washing my hair with baking soda and cider vinegar (as recommended on a no-poo website). The baking soda felt wonderful. After a month, it turns out I really did miss having something clean my scalp. It felt wonderful. I used the vinegar to rinse it off and didn’t even wind up smelling like fish and chips.

I think baking soda and vinegar will do the trick for me. My hair didn’t feel or look the least bit greasy. As always, time will tell. I haven’t figured out how often I will need to wash with baking soda yet, but I think I’m hooked.
