    Hey Becky,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences!

    I’ve been doing no-poo for a couple of years now and I love how cheap and easy it is. 

    Plus I feel smug as anything when I see shampoo adverts claiming that without their product I’ll be a greasy lonely mess spewing dandruff left right and center!

    If you’re interested I’ve been trying some new recipes for natural homemade hair care and sharing the results weekly through my newsletter.

    Oh and I can thoroughly recommend using beer as a conditioner! (I just tipped it over my head after using baking soda, worked it in and left it for 5 minutes then rinsed. Result: lovely soft hair!)

    I’ve been meaning to try essential oils so those are next on the list.

    Cheers anyway and best of luck!


    Natural Shampoo Kits

    I’ve been doing this for about a year and a half now, and I have a question.  Last summer I went to the beach, and the baking soda shampoo did not work at all while I was there.  I guess my hair was full of a mixture of salt and chlorine, and the shower water was salty, too.  My hair was sticky, looked like dreds, and I couldn’t get a comb through it for anything (I have long, curly, fairly dry hair).  This year I’m just taking some regular shampoo with me, which I hate to do!  I wondered if there were any suggestions for something homemade that would clean this stuff out of my hair?   I use the recipe for dry hair–equal parts baking soda, water, honey, and brown sugar.
