What is "No Poo"?
Okay, it has nothing to do with your bowels? No Poo means no shampoo. Not using shampoo to cleans your natural hair. For the past 3 months, I have not used shampoo to cleanse my hair.
This is what happened...
As the weather got cooler, I found that whenever I use shampoo, even sulfate-free shampoo, to cleanse my hair, my hair still feels so stripped. I was not sure what was going on. I had always incorporated co-washing (washing with cleansing conditioners) into my regimen, so it was easy for me to be a "No Poo" kind of gal.
I first start off by only co-washing my hair once a week. My hair did okay, but I felt as if everything was not getting cleansed off at the end of the month. I needed something extra. So, I started incorporating Bentonite Clay Hair Treatment. I loved it!! This treatment cleanses not only my scalp, but also my hair.
The way I know that my hair is completely clean is that my coils are rejuvenated and my hair is shiny. I rarely get build up so it can sometimes be hard for me to figure out if my hair is clean or not. One change that I made in my mix was adding one tablespoon of Brahmi powder and one tablespoon of Amla powder. These two powder gives me additional umph!

The best part of being a No Poo Gal is that my hair does not feel stripped and I get additional benefit of my hair feeling stronger from the Bentonite clay.
