I stopped using shampoo on 5th of December 2011 and haven't turned back. At first I went with the backing soda and apple vinegar method but soon realized that wasn't something for me. So I decided to become a water only hair washer. Water only is exactly what it sounds, I only use water to wash my hair.
I use other things as well in daily life, I dye my hair regularly (but wash the excess colour out with water), I use aloe vera gel, coconut oil, camomile tea, tea tree oil, honey and pretty much everything that I want to use, except for things like shampoo, conditioner and anything you can buy in the hair aisle.
You might wonder why I haven't written much more about my hair and the truth is that some days I feel so shitty about my hair that I want to turn back to shampoo but then I remember, I hated my hair when I used shampoo and my hair looks pretty awesome now.
After I stopped I rarely get eczema anymore, I do sometimes but it never reaches the point of my scalp bleeding!
Does my hair smell? No, which is something I love, I hated having the chemical smell of shampoo stuck in my hair! My hair never smells like a wet dog or wet sheep or anything. My hair is scent free!
Do I miss using shampoo? Sometimes yes but most of the time not at all. As I mentioned before I sometimes do have bad hair days but not as bad and not as often as before.
All of the pictures are since I stopped using shampoo!
P.S. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!
