No shampoo no problem

Hello, everyone today I will be giving a few tips on how to cleanse without shampoo. I know, I know, the thought of no shampoo may sound gross, but it’s not really. I don’t shampoo often, and I manage to keep my scalp very clean. Lately I have been doing a lot of wash and goes; I use this to my advantage. I take the same amount of conditioner I would need to condition my hair while showering, and I massage my scalp. I scrub my scalp, as if I were using shampoo. This loosens the product build up from my scalp, and while the water from the shower hits my hair it rinse out the build up from the week or day. This method can be used as often as believed necessary, there are no worries conditioner will never dry your hair out. Why not kill two birds with one stone? Shampoo can be very harsh on curly hair , so if you’re going to use shampoo often, make sure it does not have sulfate in your product.It will dry your hair out! It will literally strip your hair from its nutrients. Other ways to combat unclean hair and scalp without shampoo, is to wash your hair with apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar,has a very strong scent, but it gets the job done. I fill half of the cup with vinegar the other with water. Once the cup is full I shake it up and proceed to pour it on to my scalp and massage my head to loosen the dirt and product build up from my hair. However, I just can’t take my hair smelling like vinegar,so I always have a very fruity or sweet-smelling conditioner.I can’t stand the smell, and it doesn’t scream hey there sexy either ,you want to smell lady like ,not like you been cooking pork all day. I digress, I have heard about individuals cleaning their hair with lemon or orange juice they claim that the citrus acid breaks down the buildup on your scalp go figure. I myself have never tried orange or lemon juice for cleansing. One thing I can say is that witch hazel works as well if you are wearing a protective style such as individuals, or twist witch hazel allows you to wipe your scalp down and cleanse it from unwanted product or waste. If you are not wearing a protective style ,and still wary about not washing your hair with shampoo often, attempt to go a week without shampoo co-wash and use other methods of cleansing your hair, and build your way up from there. Remember, be curly, be happy, be you, and you will never fail.
