Day 2 ~ Apple Cider Vinegar = Conditioner

I’m still in love with my hair! Here’s what it looked like before I went to bed last night.


Not bad right?? After a day of chasing kids, I’d say it looks a lot better then it normally does.

The next couple of photos (Because pictures can say waaaay more than I ever could about my hair) show in this order

1. When I woke up. 2. Right out of the shower. 3. After good old-fashioned towel and air drying. 4. Put up in half a bun. 5. Hairstyle of the day. 6. How it looked before bed.

This morning I did wash a little differently I washed with 2 1/2 TBSP of baking soda in 2 cups of water, then rinsed, then followed with 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar in the same 2 cup measure mixed with 2 cups of water.

It may be 60 days without shampoo, but I must say, as I was rinsing out the baking soda this morning I totally thought I was going to need to put in conditioner because my hair felt all sorts of tangled. Then I mixed the apple cider vinegar with the water and gently scrubbed that into my head. When I started rinsing my mind was wandering to conditioners when I realized, that my hair was no longer knotted. I came to this conclusion ~ baking soda = shampoo & apple cider vinegar = conditioner.

Until the next post!


Day 1 – “No ‘Poo” Challenge

20150216_083557I love being clean, it’s a lovely feeling! I’ve seen posts around the internet lately of people doing a “No ‘Poo” (“No Shampoo”) 60 day challenge, instead of using shampoo they use a mixture of water, baking soda and apple cider vinegar. I thought, “What the heck, I’ll give this a try” And today was my first day without using shampoo.

20150216_082051I LOVE IT!!! My hair never reacts like it has today just after a shower. I used a blow dryer to dry my hair and instead of frizzy hair I got sassy- full-of-more-volume hair. Just look at these photos I took after I dried my hair!

I wish I had taken a few pictures of what it looked like before, but I didn’t think I was going to be blogging about this experiment. But after starting it, what good is an experiment if you don’t share your findings? 

20150216_082102I mixed 2 TBSP Baking Soda with 2 cups of water, let it dissolve, then poured it slowly over my head while scrubbing, and then I rinsed it out. Next I mixed 2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar with 2 cups water (Same container as the baking soda), then poured that over my head and scrubbed for a bit, then rinsed that out too. 

It was super simple, and I love the results. I’m gonna do a little more Baking Soda tomorrow, to see if I like that more, or less. But I’m still in love with my hair!! I play with it and I NEVER play with my hair, and I don’t want to put it up. This is so awesome!!

Until tomorrow!!
