The "No-'Poo" Movement

Most Popular Posts

As in sham-poo!

While driving to work the other day and getting our daily dose of NPR, we heard an interesting segment on the history of shampoo and a number of people who are giving up the lather as part of a "no-'poo movement." These people are shampooing less (if at all) and opting for baking soda and an occasional vinegar rinse. Why? As it turns out, our daily-shampooing habits might not be so great for our hair — although they have been quite beneficial for companies like Proctor & Gamble...Even if you aren't interested in giving up your 'poo anytime soon, the segment is still a fun look at the history of shampoo and shampoo marketing.

Although we love vinegar and its cleaning properties, we're hesitant to use it in our hair. Are we just lacking a sense of adventure?

Has anyone out there tried the no 'poo approach to hair care? How did it go/is it going?
