The “No POO” Trend: 5 ways to stop to use shampoo


Bored on my couch during my 9th month of pregnancy, I was looking for a miracle DYI to repair my very damaged hair (cause i must be the only pregnant girl on earth who has dry and dull hair…), when I discovered this surprising new trend: the “No Poo” movement, or how to stop to use commercial (and mostly chemical) shampoos, masks, hair oils, moisturizing treatments…

First, it sounded totally crazy to me, being someone who can’t resist to try every new product on the market, which makes my bathroom look like the Haircare Department of Sephora.

Then, I remembered that every revolution is shocking at first (remember when we all thought that skinny jeans made our legs look like sausages 15 years ago?), and decided to give this trend a try.

Here are the 5 best alternatives to shampoos I found on the website

1. Baking Soda and Apple Cider Vinegar


The traditional no ‘poo method is a combination of rinses: baking soda for cleansing and apple cider vinegar for conditioning. If you’re looking to commit to the no ‘poo lifestyle, these two ingredients are all you need.

2. Honey

4. Coconut


Coconut is definitely the big winner fruit this year. After all the benefits of the coconut oil listed in my previous article, I discovered that it is also the perfect ingredient for dry and damaged hair.

If you’re still wary of vinegar, or seeking a method that is more forgiving on curly locks, a pH-balanced coconut rinse is a perfect way to get moisturized hair without buying harmful products.
