Ok I'll admit the title threw me off when I first read it. Having a 4th month old baby, I'm always around poo somehow. But this is about no shampoo. This "no poo" revolution is happening now at a crazy pace. I was emailed this SF Gate/The Mommy Files story and this Daily Mail article, Could you survive without shampoo? It's completely fascinating for someone like me who loves my beauty products and hair goods. Apparently, shampoos are filled with chemicals that aren't good for you, especially not good for kids. Pictured above is one of the Daily Mail writers, Lucy Sutton, who did the experiment and claims, "My hair has much more volume and I have discovered it has natural wave - I'll never use shampoo again." After the initial week of greasiness, her hair overcame it and now feels like silk.
I'm probably too chicken to try this out just yet, but I've been googling it and found some related stories that are great. If you've tried this yourself, please leave a comment.
