How many of you are familiar with the 'No-poo' trend that is going on lately. Jennifer Aniston, Miranda Kerr, and even Adele have been spotted on the red carpet or even the award shows sporting their squeaky clean and lustrous hair. No-poo is short for no-shampoo, and it promotes washing hair with no shampoo or soap. So there are people who are using no shampoo and flaunting that fabulous hair. They indeed look healthy and not dull. But why?
People are adopting this technique to get rid of all the toxic chemicals that the shampoos leave in our hair. This method even includes letting your scalp build its natural oil that moisturizes the scalp. And when you wash your hair less frequently, your hair gets moisture eventually because of the oil, leaving them organically conditioned.
You will be amazed to read what girls all over the world say about this technique. A user posted a question on Quora asking what would it be like if you do not use your shampoo for washing your hair? And the answers were amazing. Let's have a look at what they say.
She mentioned that washing her hair without soap or shampoo has made no significant difference. She has been using water to clean her hair and since then there has been no persistent odor, staining on the pillowcase or even scalp itchiness.
She claims shampoos to be highly toxic having Nictitating follicle gonkulator, protruberating scalp defribulator. Out of which she is clueless which one actually cleans the scalp.
Yes, for people who have an oily scalp or the ones that tend to have a scalp that sweats a lot. But that happens because you have always used soap or shampoo to clean your hair. Your scalp will get used to the 'only water' phenomenon.
The surfactants used in the commercial shampoos strip your manes off its natural oils. But ever since she started using baking soda, her hair have never been healthy, rich, clean and itch free.
She added on by saying that there are more things to keep in check apart from keeping your hair away from shampoos and they are saying a strict NO to blow-dryer, curling irons and just letting your hair grow.
She added in tea and spices to make it smell good and it worked beautifully.
You can easily go no-poo with simple massaging tricks. All you got to do is stand in a warm shower and brush your fingers through your hair giving a slight massage. She got rid of her flakes and dandruff really easily.
It's like going no-poo but using a soap with essential oils.
It took time but eventually her hair feels clean and healthy. So, you see going no-poo is not harm but only if you know how to keep yourself clean. Using natural remedies would not strip your hair of its natural oils, and your hair will feel soft and beautiful.
