I went shampoo free last year and being a girl, it has saved me a bundle on shampoo and conditioner.

 

What I do is mix a few tablespoons of sodium bicarb with water,pour slowly over dry hair and massage in,then rinse off thoroughly - this cleans the hair and scalp, leaving on the natural oils in the hair. Then a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed in water, and massage into hair bur not scalp - this conditions the hair and makes it easy to comb/brush- again rinse it out well. (don't worry, once dryit doesn't smell of vinegar).

 

My hair (long dark curly) has never looked better. The hair initially goes through an 'uncomfortable' stage for about a month while natural oils (which shampoo strips) return to the hair. Once through the transition stage, hair looks clean and glossy, never smells dirty or like it used to, looks lank and gross three days after shampooing. Even after a week with just a quick rinse and brush every day - still looks and smells great - I just clean with the bicarb and vinegar solutions as needed.

 

I now look at shampoo and conditioner as a con - once you start using shampoo and conditioner, you're tied to using it and paying for it, otherwise oils are overproduced making the hair look horrid. Most people don't get through the transition to shampoo free, because it does take 3-4 weeks for the oil production to normalise to what it should be.

 

Just thought I'd share.

I shave my hair with clippers so it's very short. 1 bottle lasts me about 6 months. I think I can manage to afford that.

I wasn't aware about the natural oils thing.

I just buy the value hair products rather than the overpriced branded junk.

I don't know what the fuss over shampoo is anyway i.e. all these funky brand names..

 

You can't get more gentle and softer on hair than Johnsons Baby Shampoo.

I have been vegan for over half of my lifetime. As most shampoos contain dead animals, I use a method similar to that described in the first post.

 

I have a full head of hair and a few grey hairs have started to show themselves this year. People my own age such as from school are now all mostly bald, going bald or what hair they do have left is mostly grey.


If I've given you advice, then it is just my thoughts / opinions - doesn't mean I am right!

Before I see any "holy thread resurrection Batman " comments

 

 

I must point out that at the time of writing that this is on page 1.

I know for a fact that if one eats only a VEGANITE diet (I mean vegan, must be thinking of a poster hehehe)

and drink rain water you CAN discover the much vaulted FOUNTAIN of youth.

 

 

This is ALSO backed up in the bible in Daniel.

 

 

Eat NATURAL and you will look younger.

 

 

You don't need all these so-called anti-ageing creams which don't work except for the very expensive ones only reserved for so-called "celebrities"

 

Grow your OWN vegetables, and drink the rain.

 

 

Do this for two weeks.

 

 

Btw I got this from a celberity that tried this but I can't re-find the link.

I tried going vegetarian once and after 3 days I went bold and collapsed on the street.

A juicy 3 pound t-bone sorted it ☺

I only shampoo once a week now, my hair's just fine like that. Stopped using conditioner a few years ago. Maybe one day I'll switch to your bicarb solution :)

I have been seeing this product called shampoo in supermarkets for years, but never realised it was used to wash hair.

Lucky me I haven't got this problem.

Early genetic boldness took over before I could by shampoo with my own money 😂
