The No Poo Method

One week with no shampoo and feeling good.
My loving and amazing friend whom always comes up with healthy, brilliant recipes/lifestyle changes/playdates/everything, texts me the other day saying "lets go no poo," I'm usually down for whatever so I was like "aight."
Ever since I had Luca, my hormones have been fu*ked, my skin is terrible, my hair is a ball of butter and my ass is ginormous <( that is a side note that i need to get taken care of)! I have also been more aware of the environment and all the harm we are doing to it as of late, I figure no poo is a great contribution to our beautiful Mother Earth.

Why go no poo?
Everything we put down our sink will someway somehow get back into our mouths, our children's mouths, or our animal's mouths. YUK.
The less plastic the better; we will be saying bye bye to plastic shampoo/conditioner bottles in our recycling bin, and starting a zero (almost) waste movement. Yippee

Cost effective- No need to explain

Beautiful luscious locks (without the help of chemicals)

The shampoo and conditioner on the market today (and always) strips the natural sebum of your hair. Some products out there are good, but super pricey. If we don't need it, why use it?

The only thing that I miss is that intense scrubbing of the skull lather that makes you feel clean.

So here's the lowdown.

alllllls you need is:
Baking Soda
Apple Cider Vinegar
Water

Measure one to two tablespoons of baking soda and add to one cup of warm water. This is your shampoo. Wash and rinse.
Measure one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and add to one cup of warm water. This is your conditioner. Wash and rinse.

When you get out of the shower/bath brush your hair asap, otherwise it will be tangly.
viola! Your hair is no longer itchy and dirty!
