For 2018’s Lent period I gave up shampoo – and kept going beyond Easter. I’ve been shampoo-free for more than half a year now and love it!
My No Poo adventure started when I was searching for zero waste alternatives for my regular shampoo that comes in a plastic bottle. Since I really don’t like soap (looks ugly in the bathroom after the first use and is pretty inconvenient for travel), and creating my DIY-shampoo with ingredients I don’t know how they will affect my hair (baking soda? lemon? nope.), these alternatives weren’t for me. The combination of me not being a chemist and being somewhat lazy lead me to the ultimate No Poo version: Water Only.
