I don’t think I’ve talked about it yet, but since getting my head buzzed, I’ve been going the no-commercial-shampoo route and it’s been working quite well for me. (I’m sorry, I just can’t get behind the term “no-poo.” I still do that!) I haven’t gone the fancy way of making my own shampoo or using honey for conditioner like Erin has been. Rather, I’ve been keeping it simple: scrub with baking soda in place of shampoo, and then rinse with a capful of apple cider vinegar in place of conditioner. (Protip: be careful with that vinegar, people. I got some in my eye in the first week and it stung like a mother.)
Honestly, with hair this length I could probably do nothing at all and see no difference. But! Since they (“they”) say that it takes your scalp about two weeks to adapt and produce less oils, I figured that getting into it while I have too little hair to show any excess oils would work well, and then I’d be all adapted for if/when I decide to grow my hair back out again.
Or, at least, I’ll be adapted until I decide to dye my hair again. Although if and when that happens, maybe I’ll keep on with the soda/vinegar routine to see what havoc it wreaks upon dyed hair. You know, for the good of humanity and stuff.
If I can’t use my ill-conceived plans to help better inform others, what good am I, anyway?
So, do you guys have a special hair-care routine? No-(sham)poo? Lots of product? Are you big into natural materials? Do you prefer pricey salon/cosmetic products? (Do you think my weird hairline is as hilarious as I do? Hair, why do you grow that way?)
