So I'm going to do this "not washing hair" thing. What's in store?!

    I mixed it up in the blender and then used it just like shampoo. Lathered it up and washed it out.

    It rinsed out really cleanly, no greasy residue or anything. I've tried the BS/ACV but it felt like it dried my hair out more than regular shampoo.

        I smashed an egg over my head once and rubbed it in, I guess it wasn't quite as effective due to this method

          were you drunk and trying to impress the ladies (or gents, however you bend), or were you drunk and showing off?
          beautiful
          yeah you are

          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

            That's the Marsha Brady method, lol.

            Interesting, I might try egg & coco cream some time, but it seems like too much effort for me, lol. And I don't think I would benefit from fluffier hair! It's already pretty fluffy!

            I tried the OCM (oil cleansing method), too, but I was too lazy. I just stopped washing my face altogether and it's better than ever. But I know it's supposed to be great for removing makeup (if yours doesn't self-remove like mine now does!) and for absorbing excess "grease" from an "oily" complexion (at least until the overproduction from using too much soap stops).

              I used a tiny amount of Dr. Bonner's hemp/peppermint castille soap the other day. Gave it a nice shine. Wondering if an egg will add some shine?

              Also, what about coloring? It seems a bit hypocritical to use chemicals to color it when I have quit shampooing to avoid the chemicals but it makes me look tired. Any ideas on how to fix this?

                I washed with egg once and it left my hair feeling clean and well-conditioned. It was very smooth, shiney, and clean. It wasn't conditioned in that it felt over-saturated. It was simply not tangled at all. Very nice, but a little bit of a hassle to do very often. Also, you have to keep the water tepid so it doesn't cook the egg!

                Castille soap makes my hair too brittle, but I think it would work well blended with something else.

                I've also heard that applesauce cleanses well. I think it helps strip the oils & clean the scalp. I think I would only use it occasionally.

                Because of the hard water at my apartment, I can't do no-poo. I've tried boiling the water I rinse my hair in, different amounts of baking soda and vinegear etc. It just doesn't work for me right now. I wash my hair with a little SLS/paraben-free shampoo once a week, just focusing on the roots/scalp, to get rid of the build-up. I brush everyday with a boar bristle brush. I use a little color-saving conditioner on the ends as needed (since I bleach/dye my hair unnatural colors), since those get kind of rough occasionally. It seems to work pretty well.

                  I think hard water would be especially good for hair. I mean, it's natural water, with all the naturally-occuring minerals not stripped out. It's what our hair is supposed to expect water to be like, right?

                  I grew up with a well, and hence, hard water, but was using shampoo then, of course.

                    I cannot believe I've been 18 days without shampoo now! And seriously, you would never know. Two nights ago I made a Castor oil hair mask (castor oil plus 1 egg yolk) and slept with it. I washed it out yesterday morning with two eggs yolks and my hair looks amazing! I can't believe how well egg yolk gets rid of grease. Don't see the need to ever use shampoo again!

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                    • I've only completed week 2 of no shampoo. I rinsed with water last Saturday. It's a little greasy, but not terrible. Just have to remember to brush it out each day to keep away the tangles.

                          With baking soda and hard water, it becomes like a soap and just builds up more instead of stripping the dead skin and oils away. Apple Cider Vinegar just clung to my hair. I did this with un-dyed hair initially and never got out of a lanky-oily-clumpy phase, no matter what combination of stuff I tried.

                          With my dyed hair and hard water, my scalp seems to do okay with water only, but it still builds up after a week or so. The ends of my hair always get a bit brittle. It seems like I can't get the oils down the shaft, no matter how much I brush. Oh well, the color lasts pretty well with these infrequent washings .

                            NW, my hair is dyed too, and it's not dry or in bad condition but the hair shafts are thin so it can't absorb moisture readily. I know instinctly that the Baking Soda / ACV thing wouldnt work for me cos my hair needs to become more absorbing, not less oily. The egg yolks work brilliantly - they seem to make the hair more dense whilst simultaneously getting rid of the excess sebum! If your hair sounds similar to mine you should give it a shot

                            • I'm not sure how the eggs would affect my color (it's purple, avatar is a little out of date), but I will probably try them again. Maybe I'll get cheap eggs just for my hair haha.

                                Lol, I just bought cheap eggs today! I'm a former vegan now using battery eggs to wash her hair... The irony

                                I would imagine that using eggs would affect the colour less than a shampoo, since they're natural... But I'm no expert!
