I haven’t washed my hair in years…….

……with shampoo and conditioner, that is. I’m POO FREE, we’re a NO POO Household! And, no, I don’t stink and my head and hair are both clean. All is use is Baking Soda and water with a few drops of tea tree oil for the wash and apple cider vinegar and water for the rinse. This works great and my scalp has had much fewer issues than ever before. No sodium laurel sulfate on these tresses. I also save money on shampoo and conditioner, I buy apple cider vinegar in big gallon jugs and bulk baking soda. We never run out and I only need to do this about 2X a week. There is something great about leaving your hair to it’s natural state. The natural oils are not stripped from my hair and so my head doesn’t overproduce oil, so it doesn’t need to be washed as often. Now, if I go for a good run and get a good sweat going, I have to wash more often. But, alas, I haven’t ran in a few weeks. But that’s a whole other post. Anyway, here is a picture of my hair.
