I've been looking on the net for a recipe for homemade shampoo and came across a woman who basically doesn't use shampoo at all. She just uses rinses it with water whenever she showers, and once a month adds 1/2 a teaspoon of bicarb.
For about 6 weeks it was really oily and and she used the bicarb once a week, but gradually her hair got used to it, naturally balanced out oil production and now her hair is apparently the best its ever been. She doesn't need conditioner as the oils her scalp does produce is allowed to reach the ends. It makes so much sense!
Has anyone tried this themselves? I have long, fine, oily hair that I have to wash everyday if I'm to be seen in public (or even just to feel nice) so I'm a bit worried about the initial grease factor! But it'd really love to not have to shampoo my hair ($$ and chemicals, and I can never find one I 100% love) and its only natural right?!
