I decided to stop using shampoo because commercially made hair washes/shampoos strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils which makes your scalp produce more oil which in turn makes you rely more heavily on soaps and shampoos to clean it and conditioners to replenish it. I'm hoping my natural oils will make my naturally curly hair fuller, healthier, happier and prettier... this is my journey to being "no-poo"!

Why am I doing this?
I decided to stop using shampoo because for some, commercially made hair washes/shampoos strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils which makes your produce more and more which makes you rely more heavily on soaps to clean it. Mine not so much. My scalp is dry and itchy when I over wash my hair, and curly hair by nature tends to be dry dry dry so I am hoping my natural oils wll make my naturally curly hair fuller, healthier, happier and prettier. When using commercial shampoos, your hair's natural oils never get a chance to make it to the ends of your hair, you have to rely on conditioners to soften it and protect it. And I'd use 3 times more conditioner to the amound of shampoo I was using to compensate. Shampoo manufacturers sure know what they're doing!! It's a dependance they're creating, and a multi-billion dollar industry. Is my hair addicted to the stripping shampoos and conditioners used to apply moisture plus the styling products that do their fair share of depositing unnatural chemicals in my hair?? I wonder.
