    Well i still plan to wash my hair everyday, just not with shampoo, only water. I figure that will get rid of stuff like sweat, dust, or whatever, and even dead skin because they say to give your head a good massage. Then the natural oils in the hair take care of the rest

    My hair is really oily at the moment. I have to wash it every 2nd day. I sometimes can go a 3rd day but it's worst after that.

    Yep this is me, I wash only with plain hot water in the shower every couple of days. It's been about two years of this and my hair is thicker, nicer than ever before. I used to have quite thin hair which I hated. Though I have also stopped straightening, dying or using any product in my hair for just as long so I'm sure that helps.
    I would say rather than 6 weeks it actually took more like 6 months of ratty looking unhealthy hair to recover itself. Luckily for me, I live in the country and nobody cares! I used a lot of colour and daily straightened prior going no 'poo so that might be why it took so long.
    I love being product free now and won't go back! Though sometimes I miss dramatic hair colour.

    I henna dyed my hair on Saturday and started the no poo challenge the same day. Just washed my hair with bicarb and apple cider vinegar and it feels divine, have to admit I was so sceptical about the bicarb wash but my hair felt really clean, even squeakyish before I did the vinegar rinse!
    Anyone else trying it? Keep me updated if you do please- I don't wanna go it alone!

    Im one week in to the "no poo" challenge. I am washing my hair every 2 days like I was with shampoo. My hair feels fantastic, I don't have to use product and my hair has a lot of bounce. So far so good. Although I'm waiting to see how bad the transition will be as I hate oily hair.


    I did wonder about hair dye. My hair is its natural colour at the moment, but will be looking at a big colour change soon. Does anyone know if the bicarb will strip the colour?

    Yay I'm glad to hear there are some more people on bubhub trying it. I haven't used shampoo since last Wednesday and used bicarb and vinegar twice since then. I'm actually quite suprised at how well my hair is taking it so far!! Its not as oily as i thought it would be straight up, but i suppose it will get worse. Seeing as I've only used water for the past three days (and i usually shampoo everyday), I'm pretty impressed.
    Will keep you updated with how I go!

    I came across the no poo concept on a henna dye forum, apparently shampoo strips color much faster than the bicarb/vinegar.
    You could look into dying with henna and indigo, can create heaps of different colors and shades and it doesn't stuff up the PH balance of your scalp like commercial dyes.
    Just goes along really well with the concept! I'm also making and using my own washing powder, mouthwash and toothpaste!

    This thread just reminded me about dry shampoo. Could be handy as I hardly have time to wash my hair these days.

    Dry shampoo is awesome!!!! It's probably my favourite beauty product although I couldn't live with foundation.
