Re: Re: Cheap Shampoo Caution


    I have naturally curly hair. I am always complaining about my hair being just wavy in some spots and curly in others — there’s no consistancy.

    My hairdresser, who is also my best friend’s mother, asked me to try something for her. She asked me to STOP using shampoo. She said to just try it for a month or two as a favor to her.

    What I did was wash my hair with a paste made of baking soda and water (I wrote about it on another thread) and let my hair air dry. After that — no shampoo and no baking soda an when drying my hair I used the lowest setting on cool and only used my fingers while drying, no using a brush or comb while drying.

    After a couple of days my hair looked so good! The curls were all there and they were evenly distributed.

    Now, I know what you are thinking … NO, I didn’t stop washing my hair. I continued to shower just like always, but when it came to my hair, I scrubbed it just as if I had used shampoo, but I didn’t use anything other than water. My hair looked great. I couldn’t go a whole month without shampoo though, just because mentally, I didn’t like the though of going without it.

    Now I use shampoo about once every couple of weeks and I use the baking soda about once a month.

    It was an interesting experiment!
