So the method I am using is one found on one of my new favorite blogs which can be found here- I am using method #3. Basically what the breakdown is- there are quite a few ingredients found in A LOT of shampoos that are posing potentially serious health effects, not to mention damaging to the environment. And really what are the options-don't wash your hair...uhhmmm no not in my case, buy all natural or organic shampoos-sure, great now only if I lived in a city large enough to warrant an all natural grocery store...(or a Target for that matter), or in my case option #3-give up traditional shampoos and find the REAL all natural route to getting my locks clean and shiny. Option three demands that I "make" my own no poo, no biggie- vinegar, cinnamon sticks, vanilla extract (looked for whole beans but c'mon I do live in a tiny town), baking soda and water. I kinda just dab and pinched my way thru the no poo recipe. (I think I may have to adjust my baking soda pinches but oh well it was cheap to make ; p). Here are my RAW ingredients:
and here are my finished projects (I know I know I labelled them like a dork but I can't help it...I need things to be orderly...or at least look that way!!)
I am taking a shower now and I will take pics in the morning of my dry no-poo'd hair. WISH ME LUCK!!!!
