I stopped shampooing my hair.

Okay, so I know a lot of you are already doing this, but I have to admit that it never appealed to me. I liked my sudsy, scented shampoos and conditioners. I thought people who used other stuff must have hair that is kind of stinky.

But, I am continuing to try to cut expenses, so I decided to do more research on the baking soda and apple cider vinegar method of hair care. After learning what I could online, I decided to make the leap into the ‘no-poo’ method.

no poo method

(giant zip bags in the back are part of my latest attempt to keep my car-living more organized! It is chaos!)

I also bought the fixins for homemade toothpaste (baking soda plus hydrogen peroxide).

It isn’t just the cost, but the realization that the shampoos we use unnaturally strip our hair of oils. This causes an overproduction of oil that, in turn, causes us to use MORE shampoo. I’d like it if I didn’t have to scrub my hair so frequently, so am hoping this change will help.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Hope you all are well!

Take care,

Jennifer
