Day 11 – The “No- Poo” Method

Leave a comment

So I have skipped a few days here because pretty much nothing at all has changed.  My hair is still responding in the same way and I am still brushing and washing in the same way pretty much every day.  Some days I have actually skipped washing it with the mixtures, instead just massaged the scalp with water, because it was hardly even oily.

One thing I will say though is that I recently went to visit my dad who lives off of well water which is very soft compared to our city water where I live.  And thank god I was only there long enough to need to wash it once because it was extremely painful!  Not only did it take longer to actually rinse the baking soda and then the vinegar out of my hair, but the brushing portion while dealing with this ultra-soft water was really tough.  My hair just did not want to comb  through and it reminded me a lot of having my hair pulled by the comb when i was a kid!

So if you have soft water where you live, I regret to say this will probably be more challenging for you, unless I am just a tender-headed wimp.  You tell me.

Here’s a pic from today, as you can see things are looking pretty much the same so far… but we’ll see what happens when, six days from now, i have to switch to “washing” with JUST WATER for two weeks straight.  Thank god its so cold out, in case i have to wear a hat every day!
