What is no-poo?
No-poo involves giving up on the shampoo completely, simply because dependency on the cleansing agent is stripping your locks out of its natural oils. Further, to compensate for the lack of oils, our scalp’s sebaceous glands secrete more than necessary. There is no easing into the no-poo system; you have to go all in and not wash your hair for more than a week—longer the better, it can often go upto six weeks. You’re retraining you’re hair follicles to reduce its sebum excretion. Finally, when you do wash, it involves chemical-free washing methods, even it means rinsing your hair with just water. Baking soda and apple cider vinegar are popular choices. Close second is aloe vera, tea, lemon juice and egg whites and if you take a look at Indian herbal remedies, the lethal combination of amla-reetha-shikakai has been known to knock out all types of hair grime. These washes are infrequent and depend on your physiology.
