Remember I was talking about going "no poo," but then my hair turned absolutely hideous so I gave in and washed it thoroughly with shampoo on Christmas? At the time I said that going no poo probably isn't for me, but I'm rethinking it.
You see, I didn't wash my hair at all between Christmas and today. But did my hair get super oily? No. It got a little oily, but not enough to really bother me.
When I washed it today I just rinsed it with water while brushing it to hopefully encourage the oil to rinse out, and then used conditioner on it. It's almost dry now, and even though it's still slightly oily it feels soft and looks nice.
I think it was the baking soda I was using on my hair that turned it hideous. It seems to work for other people, judging from the fact that I found it suggested in several places online, but it obviously doesn't work for me.
I'm sorry if I'm boring anyone by talking about my hair, but if it keeps going like this and I can get away with only washing it once a week without it getting really oily on me I will be very very happy. :D
