Traditional shampoos and conditioners that you find in big box stores are full of harmful chemicals and don’t actually do anything great for your hair. Granted, there are some wonderful natural shampoos on the market that are much better to use in your home than the bigger name brands but even those are not as natural as your hair routine can get. Your hair and scalp already produce enough natural oils to condition and keep your locks healthy. Using shampoos only upsets the natural balance that your hair and scalp has with one another.
I have always been hesitant about going without traditional shampoo, or no ‘poo, because of how long my hair is. It’s fascinating, though, the idea of going without shampoo so I am going to give myself a 30 day challenge. No shampoo, no conditioner and no other hair products. I am only going to use the simple and basic ingredients needed to go no ‘poo. I love using regular shampoo and conditioner, so this is definitely going to be a struggle!
