I planned on doing my "No Poo" updates on Mondays, however, this Monday we will be in Kansas. I am super excited about it, since we will be meeting with our whole church planting team for the first time! We have a "skype" meeting with every one on Thursday nights, but there is just something different about being in person. So I will be mia till Wednesday.
If you don't know what the "No Poo" 30 day challenge is, check out my first post, on the why and how to go sans shampoo and join us!
This week was still a transition week for me. My hair was oily. Oily, but not greasy or gross. My hair was as oily the first day of washing with baking soda as it would be my second day after using shampoo. No big deal. I simply wore my hair in a pony tail or messy bun. It did get better throughout the week.
Day 8 Monday- Washed Hair. Top of hair looks fine. A little oily later on in the day.
Day 9 Tuesday- No wash. Oily hair. Put hair in bun.
Day 10 Wednesday- No wash. Trying to let my hair go a little longer between washing. Hair is actually no more oily than it was yesterday. Hhhmmm.
Day 11 Thursday- Washed Hair. Increased the amount of Apple Cider Vinegar and used it as a leave in treatment on the ends of my hair after my shower. Hair feels very soft. Top of hair looks really good. Not oily. Was able to fix it curly and wear it down.
(I will add on Friday-Sundays to next week's update.)
I did some experimenting this week. I Increased the ACV on Thursday since my ends were a little dry. One reader said that she doesn't rinse out the ACV, but uses it as a leave-in conditioner. I tried this and it works great. No left over smell either! I also increased the number of days I went without washing. Not sure if you are supposed to wash every other day with this method or not. Many of the other bloggers I read go about three days between washing. Their hair doesn't get oily or dirty as fast.
So how did your week go? Please comment below with an update...I would love to hear! It isn't too late to join either. If you would like to join in with the challenge just leave a comment below, then once a week give us an update!
