I'm trying it out I went and bought a micro fiber turban to do it with well are how it work for me. Just changing my showering I can already feel the difference.



I never knew how much bad I was doing with simple things like shampoo and wrong conditioners

When not pregnant i do no-poo, but I'm not curly---at all. "Bone straight" they call it.

I've been this way since birth. It's insane. Nobody can cut my hair decently because it shows EVERY snip because it is so freakishly straight and its super thick and you can't hide anything!!!

I have curly hair and gets frizzy unless i put product in it to tame it then it looks pretty, i do just wash my hair with conditioner sometimes but because of all the product i put in my hair it gets really oily and itchy and it makes my face and scalp line break out like crazy so i have to wash it with shampoo, which then makes it look dry and gross especially if i dont put anything in it. I hate my curly hair so i usually just straighten it or put a relaxer on it.

Have you tried using baking soda instead of shampoo?

no i dont think i've ever heard of that, but if it will help with the frizziness i'll try it.
