  1. The Childhood Years
    I have a 4-year-old who hates having her hair washed. She loves playing in the bath, but doesn't like the hair thing. I'm trying to decide how much I can let that go. What are your hair standards?

    Need help with dd's straight/wavy hair. On a good day it's straighter and more manageable and other times it's wavy, knotted etc. After spending a good 10 minutes removing knots and brushing it a hundred times it looks, I'd say, passable. We put on a hair band and it's a little better but we get...

    My dd was itching her scalp a few minutes ago and when I took a moment to look, I would that all along the front of her hairline is very flaky dry skin. She is nine, and washes her own hair well at this point, ans we try to avoid harsh shampoos with SLS etc. What should we try to fix this for...

    Hello! I started the no 'poo route about two weeks ago and now my hair is really starting to bug me. Its still in the adjustment phase so its pretty greasy looking and more or less plastered to my scalp. Please tell me that eventually this does end, my hair will adjust to not having the oils...

    Do ten more really "come to its funeral"?? Just wondering because I am now getting just enough gray (along my part line...ugh, it totally figures!!) to be noticeable (by me) but not enough that I want to start dying my hair. (I am just getting all of the old highlights totally grown out and now...

    HELP! Seriously. I love my daughter's hair, really I do. I am just clueless, LOL. I'm learning a lot of cute little parts and braids, even cornrows. I don't know what to use on her hair. I want to maybe order the Mixed Chicks conditioner. I have some "hair grease" stuff from an African...

    I started no-poo this past July and it has been great. My dandruff problem is much much better (almost completely gone) and the itchiness problem I had is so much better too. But all of a sudden in early Nov. I started battling breakouts on my forehead. I don't know that it is related to...
  8. Natural Body Care
    I've been no 'pooing since August. I've had some ups and downs...but never a full on greasy stage. Lately I've had some dandruff issues, so I added brown sugar to my BS and rinsed my hair with 1/2 cup white vinegar mixed with a 1/2 cup of water before using the BS and brown sugar. Afterwards, I...

    I know I can buy a product I can spray to make combing tangled hair easier, but is there a basic thing I can do with household ingredients? I'm thinking it's probably just diluted conditioner? Is that ok to spray in if we don't wash her hair often, or is conditioner going to make her hair nasty...

    What do you think of cutting it very short? I know it's a personal thing, but I just want some opinions and thoughts. I have always had long hair - right now it's a little over halfway down my back. I like the pretty things that can be done with it, but my hair is so thick that it takes a lot...
  11. Natural Body Care
    I've been using baking soda and acv on my hair for about a year and a half now. Generally I like it. I like how cheap and simple it is. But I do have some questions still: 1) Every time I brush my hair it leaves some gray "stuff" on the bristles. I don't know what it is. It doesn't matter...
  12. Natural Body Care
    I've been no-poo'ing for a few months now. But my hair just looks TERRIBLE. I do BS with ACV rinse, and my hair just looks greasy - all.the.time. I was out of town for turkey day last week, and I used my family's head and shoulders, and my hair looked FABULOUS for 4 days! Not greasy, it was...

    Why is shampoo so terrible? Seems to me all the agony going through the no poo trial and error is just nuts. Greasy hair, scraping sebum, smelly scalp? Can you all please explain the importance? I only wash my hair 2-3x a week, its very thick wavy almost curly and looks weird if i over wash. My...
  14. Natural Body Care
    Hi everyone, This is my second time trying to go no 'poo--big greasy failed attempt over a decade ago--and I can't find answers to my questions despite spending the past couple of hours Googling! Maybe it's because there is just so much info out there now (versus there not being any the first...
  15. Natural Body Care
    I have very straight hair. I get a little curl in the back. I am white and overweight. I am thinking about going no poo...but I was thinking hair styles. I am uncomfortable with straight hair. Growing up it had a tendency to be stringy. In hind sight this might have been a puberty issue...

    Anyone have a favorite leave in conditioner? Oil isn't an option - I've tried it and it just doesn't work for us. I need something that will condition and detangle without weighing hair down. Any favorites?

    I have heard of using beer as a hair rinse after you washed your hair makes your hair shiny and full of body. Has anyone tried using beer in their hair? What about the smell?
