I am often asked " How often should I no poo?" I want you to remember that cleansing is "scalp care" not "hair care". We are cleansing the scalp and not washing the hair. Easy, but different:)
So, now that you know that, how does your scalp feel, does it need a cleanse? If yes, no poo. If not, cowash. See the difference♥A new way to cleanse
It’s time to change your way of thinking about shampooing your hair. It is mainly your scalp that needs to be cleansed; the skin. Your scalp is what produces the sebum to naturally lubricate your hair, but after years of using harsh detergents your scalp produces more oil than it ordinarily would, under more natural conditions. You can clean your scalp, remove styling products from your hair, and reduce oil production by using a cleaning conditioner, sometimes called "No Poo". Cleansing conditioners contain gentle sulfate-free surfactants that will clean your scalp and hair, without drying or stripping. Wet your hair, put the product on your fingertips and massage it into your scalp, focusing on the moist oily areas. Instead of a facial you're giving yourself a scalp'cial. Don't worry about the hair yet. After you've cleansed your skin add some more water, just to dilute and distribute the product down the length of your hair. Now you can massage it into the hair. You will notice a very mild foaming action, but there will be no lather. Don't be alarmed, your hair is getting clean. Then rinse and massage it out, scalp and hair, water and friction, til your scalp and hair is clean, smooth and soft. Not parched, tanglely, or God forbid squeaky.
