Poo-Free update...Day 14

Here I am, two weeks since I last shampooed my hair.

Yesterday, I was ready to chuck the whole idea. I was seriously tempted to use shampoo in the shower, but..I have made a commitment to keep at this for a month, so I didn't. Yesterday, my scalp was feeling a little itchy, and I just really felt like I needed a wash. I didn't actually make it into the shower until about 2pm (LOL), but *after* I washed...I don't know. Something went wrong. My hair felt heavy and greasy and worse than before I showered! I didn't have much time to investigate, because I had to get to work, so I just blow-dried it and went on in. As the day went on, however, my hair started to look a little better, and actually, last night I went to play Bunko with some friends, and received compliments on how good my hair looked! People especially commented on how healthy and shiny it was. I actually was able to share with them what I've been doing, and they seemed intrigued instead of repulsed, so it must have been looking ok! :)

This morning, my hair feels nice and soft again, with tons of body and shine. In retrospect, I think maybe I used too much apple cider vinegar in my rinse yesterday. I guess it is possible to have too much of a good thing. I will say, however, that when I got out of the shower, my hair was completely tangle free. This is a major improvement for me, as it's usually a knotted mess. But yesterday, I was able to comb through my wet hair with Anthony's fine-tooth man-comb, with only minimal hair loss.

So, I'm still on the wagon. My month-long experiment will end at Christmas, and by then I will either be a true believer, or I'll be headed back to the Shampoo aisle. I'll keep you posted.


  1. as a guy, this makes no sense to me... apple cider and vinegar are food words, not hair words... but if it's working for you, go for it.

  2. What in the heck are you doing, and why? I'm sure there's a point, I just don't know what it is.
