Want to cut down on hair products but not sure about the 'no poo' movement?

Posted by Amy Beaith on

Simply put, the 'no poo movement' is ditching shampoo in favour of an alternative that is soap-free in most cases. The most popular alternative is using baking soda for washing your hair and apple cider vinegar rinse as your conditioner.

A modified 'no poo' variation:

  • Wash with our rosemary & mint shampoo bar instead of baking soda.

  • Use an apple cider vinegar herbal hair rinse (recipe below)
  • For long hair, dab your tips/ends of your hair with olive or sweet almond oil, or takea few drops of one of our facial serums, which are excellent moisturizers for hair tips too!

BONUS: You can still wash less frequently because our soaps are moisturizing and gentle on the hair, similar to the baking soda & ACV method. I call this modified 'no poo' as I am using a soap, but it's a natural soap with glycerin still in the soap and no sulfates, phosphates, parabens, phthylates, propyl compounds, PEG compounds, or other nasty stuff found in conventional shampoo! Bar soap is hands down better for your hair and scalp than a liquid shampoo!
