Alas, that was not the case with me.
I eventually tried some Burt's Bees shampoo, which is all natural, using a vinegar rinse in place of conditioner. Unfortunately, the shampoo made my hair rather lifeless, which I did not like. (I would like to add that whatever I think of their hair stuff, I love Burt's Bees chap stick!)
So now I'm back to where I was before trying no poo, which is using some 2 in 1 stuff that combines shampoo and conditioner. It's pretty simple, but works really well on my hair.
Have you ever gone to great lengths to try to find out how to do something better (whether it was taking care of your hair, or something else), only to find that what you were already doing was actually the best thing for you?
I've read great stories about other people going no poo and it being great for them. I guess I'm just not one of those people it works for!
