Over the last few months, something went wrong with my hair. I'm not sure what happened, but it had just become more and more difficult to manage. I consulted hair stylists. I got a new cut. I "invested" in some pricey, salon quality shampoo and conditioner. It seemed the harder I tried to make it look ok, the worse it looked. I just started pulling my hair up in a ponytail every day because I couldn't do anything with it. I am way too cheap and way too low maintenance to put a whole lot of effort into my hair.
I should add that most of my life I have had stick straight hair. However, the older I get, the more waves and little curls I get, especially in the back of my hair. Odd. I also should confess that I tend to have dandruff too. Yuck, I know. I've tried most of the anti-dandruff shampoos available, with minimal benefit.
Anywho, I had been hearing some about this no shampoo method and I was a little interested. I read a few websites about it just to get a sense of what it was. I found this site helpful and interesting.
Then I ran out of my $10 bottle of investment shampoo. So what better time than the present to try it out?
Here are the supplies:
2. Rinse hair out.
3. Use a apple cider vinegar and water mixture to "condition" your hair. This ratio I use is 1 part apple cider vinegar to 3 parts water. I put this is a water bottle and squirt it on my hair. You are supposed to stay away from the roots of your hair, as this will make it look greasy.
4. Rinse out.
That's it! I've been doing it almost three weeks, and I love it. My hair looks a lot better than it has in a long time!
The dandruff is gone, my hair is less greasy and feels softer, and I haven't needed to wash it every day!! It is super, duper cheap, and gets rid of a few more chemicals in my house.
