No, not THAT kind of poo, but shampoo. As an occasional follower of the Crunchy Betty blog, I’ve been meaning to make my life more crunchy for some time. I’ve been trying to put healthier things INTO my body and now it’s time for me to start putting healthier things ON my body. If I’m going to attempt to be a healthy, balanced person that means I need to be healthy in all (or at least most) aspects of my life.
I’m also trying to reduce my ecological footprint and many of the chemicals we slather on our body are bad for the environment. If they’re bad for the environment, what makes us think they’re good for us?
After reading Betty’s post on going No Poo several months ago, I stuck it in the back of my brain as a “nice idea”. Well, it may be a nice idea, but ideas are meant to be implemented. The “breaking in” period sounds like a rough transition, but I’m hoping that because I only wash my hair once a week as it is, it won’t be as bad. That said, if my hair and scalp DO freak out it’s winter which means it’s hat weather. Also, I work from home. I don’t have to impress anybody with wonderful hair unless I want to.
Here’s a picture of me and my limp, split-end riddled hair right before my first No Poo cleaning. I’ll try to remember to post update pictures once a week for the next couple of weeks.
