Simple Yet Basic

I thought I would give you an update on the no poo challenge I started in August. It has been 4 1/2 months and it has been going wonderful.

Ash has started doing it as well, and so we haven't had to buy shampoo in awhile. Which is nice.

I have also noticed that I don't have to wash my hair everyday anymore either. Every other day works and one time I went one day farther than that. I didn't want to wash my hair late at night so I decided to do it in the morning. Well, when I woke the next morning my hair didn't need it so I didn't.

I bought a gallon of apple cider vinegar in August and just ran out the other day. I think it lasted quite awhile one small box of baking soda lasts us about 2 weeks.

I have noticed that our hair has gotten lighter in color and it feels silkier. Every now and then I add lavender essential oil to the vinegar rinse.

I would say for now I plan on staying with this approach to washing my hair, I am far more pleased than I thought I would be.

Have a blessed day



  1. Erika,

    I have heard about the "no shampoo" method, but I haven't actually tried it. I'm glad it is working for you.

    It was a pleasure to visit your blog today, as well as view the pictures along your side bar. I certainly have enjoyed my visit. :)

  2. I have tried dear friend...but on my curly hair, it did not have the effect I was looking for :(

    Your lovely long hair looks beautiful and so healthy!


  3. My mother washed my long blonde hair at the kitchen sink. I would lie down on my back on the counter, and she would shampoo my hair with a mixture of stuff, including an egg. She always rinsed my hair with apple cider vinegar. I know she did that until I was ten years old, when we moved from California to Mississippi.
