Kathy's Thoughts

My thoughts on life around me and trying to find the true me.

The Nopoo Experiment

By no means am I a totally crunchy Mama but sometimes an idea comes my way and if it isn’t too crazy or expensive, I will try it out.  It seems that the newest trend in haircare is nopoo.  What is nopoo?  It is a simple, CHEAP way to clean your scalp and thus clean your hair. 

You can make your own Nopoo for pennies.  I recently finished up a bottle of both shampoo and conditioner so I figured after all my Frankenstorm prep that I would do something “fun”.  I rinsed my bottles out really well and then made my own shampoo and conditioner.

Next up was the test.  Since both the “shampoo” and “conditioner” are mostly water, they are NOT going to be thick and the “shampoo” will NOT lather.  The point is to just get in into your scalp and when rinsing it will get to the ends.

I have to say that I was tempted to put “real” shampoo in my hair after using the Nopoo as my hair felt strawlike.  I resisted the temptation so I could truly test my new “products”.  I rinsed with my Apple cider vinegar “conditioner” and still wasn’t feeling it. 

I will say that my hair was VERY easy to brush and it feels really smooth.  There may just be something to this!

I will keep you posted.
