For months on end, I’ve had a secret shame.
And not just on the second day – I’m talking just hours after washing it.
I assumed it was just the shampoo I was using – so I switched it out.
But three weeks rolled by… and it was still a greasy, flat mess.
I tried using more shampoo, which in hindsight, was probably the worst thing I could do. Less shampoo had no effect. I tried different shampoos – like an expensive mainstream clarifying shampoo and an all-natural tea tree oil shampoo. And I even tried an apple cider vinegar rinse.
But nothing worked.
At this point, I was pretty much ready to just give in and shave it all off.
But then I heard about the ‘no-poo’ method.

My mum had been going on about it for months and honestly, I thought she was going a bit nuts.
How could anyone possibly go without shampoo?!
The internet agreed though, there was page after page of forums praising the ‘no-poo’ method for providing them with hair free from greasiness.
I wasn’t completely ready to give up shampoo though, so I decided to have a go at using the ‘no-pooers’ most popular shampoo alternative – baking soda.
