I was no-pooing. But I've given up. I washed with shampoo about an hour after I posted that after BS did nothing for the texture. My hair is back to being soft and combable again.
I think I might try no-poo again sometime, with details of what I'm doing each day and daily hair pictures.
I clearly need to have my hand held when it comes to no-pooing.
I daresay there's plenty I could do to make my hair *look* better, but when it comes to *feeling* good (like silk) more shampoo than recommended seems to be the way to go for me.
The wierd thing is, when I was no-pooing, my hair did look better. Not-frizzy, sleek, and so forth, but it just felt so horrible--like it does when I try using conditioner.
