The really alternative ways to clean and take care of your hair are the next steps. All natural products that you can buy in your local supermarket. Nope no shampoo and conditioner. Let me tell you more.
To clean: Soda! Regular baking soda is a good way to stop using shampoo. It breaks of the layers of silicones and parabens restoring your hair back to how it should be. Just mix 1 teaspoon with a cup of water and wash your hair with it.
To condition: Apple vinegar. Conditioners basically are made for closing hair cuticles because they contain certain acids. Apple vinegar is quite similar but simply without extra chemical additives, which leaves your hair full and soft. Mix the vinegar with some water and wash like you normally do. Your hair will be more happy and so will you.
One of the most effective ways is to stop washing your hair with products on a regular basis. It is called the “no-poo” system. A funnyname being yet serious as in “no sham-poo” and a bit satirical because also the poo means crap nobody wants to put in their hair. Celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Robert Pattinson and Adele are examples of people that don´t wash their hairs. Why you ask me? It´s simple, your scalp normally produces natural oils that condition your hair, it´s actually self-cleansing. When you start to wash your hair more often your scalp becomes dry and after needs to start over producing these same oils, leaving your hair greasy and in need to wash more often.
If you want to stop it is advised to build down your shampooing by adding more water every time you wash your hair and using less shampoo until none. The key to this system is patience. In the first weeks your hair may get a bit more oily but it will balance out. And when you wash just rinse with water. If you feel the need for washing from time to time once every six weeks is advised by using a soft and as natural as possible shampoo or using soda. You will save a lot of time, money as well as being nature friendly. Your hair will have its own natural glow and fullness it actually always had.
This system only really works for devoted naturalists, because we all know what a consumer likes under the shower, beautiful smells and sensations, the feeling you are really clean from head to toe. But no matter what your choice is going to be, there will always be a solution, a solution I eagerly want to discover and share with you.
