Taking the no poo plunge

Going no poo!
You may remember that I went natural with my hair products. I told myself that after I was done with the shampoo I was using that I would give "no poo" aka baking soda a shot. Not to disappoint my readers, I started this transition recently and it hasn't been as successful as from switching from Dove to a natural product.

The first day of using a cup of water and a tablespoon of baking soda left me with fabulous hair! It felt a little thicker than usual. The second day, I was advised to not use anything in my hair while showering to give my hair a rest. The result, greasy hair, which is to be expected. There is a detox period and it's different for everyone so I just have to get used to it as my hair is dependent on getting washed everyday. On the third day, when I use the baking soda, it again, looks fabulous.

I've been using this guide to "no poo" and I have found it really helpful. If you have some tips/tricks on going no shampoo, I would love to hear them. I'm not too sure about it right now but then again, it's early.
