I have decided to skip the shampoo and see how I do going "no poo." I first heard about "No Poo" over a year ago from Leslie at Recycle Your Day. It's been something I've wanted to try since, but didn't run out of shampoo until now. That was one BIG bottle of Pantene.
Why skip shampoo?
It's full of all kinds of chemical crap that I really don't want to put on my body. I was using Classic Pantene which has a Skin Deep rating of 5. I generally don't using anything above a 2. To complete my toxic chemical wash I was also using the Pantene Conditioner. I'm going to avoid these yummy chemicals because nerve damage and cancer aren't really my style.
Why the bigger triceps? I am scrubbing my scalp for about a minute each time I shower and boy have I felt it in my arms. At this rate I will have Michelle Obama arms in no time.
My last shampoo was Wednesday of last week. Since then I did one baking soda "wash" with an apple cider vinegar rinse. Results? Squeaky clean and I smelled like Easter. I LOVE Easter. I really haven't noticed a huge difference. My hair has been a little more oily than usual but certainly not oily to the point of being gross. Once those monkeys I order arrive to pick out the fleas I'll be golden.
SERIOUSLY= it isn't nasty or gross. If I didn't tell you that I wasn't using shampoo you wouldn't have a clue.

I'll be back to blogging about my decluttering soon.
