Hey, ladies! Well, my hubby and I have been weaning ourselves off shampoo for the last few years by stretching washings further and further apart and only using natural shampoo when we do wash. We both have long hair (mine is to my waist, his is to the bottom of his shoulder blades), and the less we do to our hair the better it is. Then I found out about the whole no 'poo movement and was like "yes!" But my hubby had no desire to try using bs and vinegar - mostly the vinegar because he didn't want his head smelling like it, even for just as long as it takes for his hair to dry. Well, fast forward to the week of Thanksgiving - I was away for a week, which was fine since that's about as long as we average anyway (6-7 days) and I can't wash my hair by myself because it's too thick and I never get all the shampoo and conditioner out. So, we figured no big deal, we washed it before I left and we'd wash it when I got back.
Well, I don't sleep well away from my hubby and I started getting sick while I was gone, so when I got back, all I wanted to do was sleep, lol. So another week passed, every time we'd hop in the shower, I just wouldn't want to take the time and energy to wash my hair. It got greasy, but it wasn't nasty - just add water and it was dealable (I'm a homemaker). I'm now on week three, my hair is a little waxy (not bad today since we showered last night) and my hubby's hair is awesome. **grumblejealousgrumble**
Here's my question - I understand that bs and acv work as shampoo and conditioner, but everything I've read about them talk about how each one affects the ph balance of your hair, which doesn't sound very appealing to me. But I need something to gently exfoliate my scalp from time to time. Any one have any suggestions? Thanks in advance, ladies!
