Here is one. Also, since this was posted in the Health & Healing forum, I moved it to Natural Body Care which is where we host discussions on natural body care.
Yes, I don't think anyone has posted in that thread for a long time but there are some good tips and tricks there. I have been no 'poo since February 2012. My technique has changed over time and now what works for me is washing with conditioner only. I started out using BS/ACV but found my hair to dry. Then, I used just water. Still too dry. Now I wash with water and a natural conditioner. It's what works for me, but I tend to be really dry and we have hard water.

I did the no-poo method for probably 18 months and my hair just WASN'T cooperating after abotu a year. It felt dry and flyaway and gross. I couldn't wear it down because it was HUGE and poofy looking. Finally I gave up and now I wash with baking soda and a cheap silicone-free conditioner every other day and just water on my "off" days if I have worked out and it's sweaty and gross. Every once in a while I'll lather up with shampoo. I figure it's still saving me money and keeping the majority of chemicals off my skin but it just didn't work for me long term.
Here are all the details on how I wash my hair with vinegar. I tried using baking soda as well, but it didn't seem to make any difference, so now I skip that step. I have longish, thick, wavy, European-type hair that used to be so oily I had to wash it every other day--now I can wash just once a week!
