I have stumbled across a very intriguing idea that I can’t wait to try. And although I’ve not yet had the chance to test it out, I think that this idea is so unique that it’s worth sharing. On her blog “Simple Mom” (www.simplemom.net), Tsh Oxenreider (yes, that’s her real name) talks about how she has gone without shampoo and conditioner for several months now. (You can read the article here: http://simplemom.net/how-to-clean-your-hair-without-shampoo/.)
Perhaps the idea sounds repulsive, putrid, repugnant, disgusting … whatever term you want to use. But my curiosity is piqued. Instead of shampoo, Oxenreider uses baking soda and water. And instead of conditioner, she uses apple cider vinegar and water. Interesting. This definitely appeals to the cheap, Dutch nature in me.
I think it’s worth a try.
I can’t help but giggle when I think of the fit my younger, classier, perfectly coiffed sister will throw when she finds out that I am about to substitute shampoo and conditioner with cooking and baking supplies. “Going green” is definitely not her thing. Oh yes, this could be a VERY fun experiment!
I know a girl, actually, who has tried this with very enviable results. But, with my luck, things might just turn out differently. So if my hair turns green or becomes excessively yucky-looking over the next few weeks, you now know why.
