You wake suddenly, drenched in sweat, trembling, mouth dry. What a nightmare!
Everyone was staring, gawking at your greasy hair which hung limply in front of your eyes. You were branded a super-geek for life and would never have a date or a spouse or a better job or an invitation to pose for your favorite magazine. Palm-sweatingly tragic.
I think this is what the shampoo companies want us to think will happen if we stop using their chemical-filled, over-priced products. So they come up with increasingly ridiculous ads to make us believe we need their stuff, and we shell out money over and over for products we do not need.
This is my verdict on commercial shampoo:
I am never going back.
Maybe someday if I’m confined to a nursing home, the staff will pour their own choice on my head. I think I won’t be too concerned about shampoo at that point.
But for now, I am SOLD.
I’ve been using baking soda and apple cider vinegar as my ONLY hair products for two weeks, and I love it!!!
Despite a little initial detoxing in the form of some extra grease, the regimen has been better than I’d even hoped:
and my shower isn’t full of bottles of painfully expensive “natural” or “organic” products either.
Why would I go back?

Of course, if I keep posting crazy-sounding ideas like this, I may be thrown into the Funny Farm, at which point, I will be forced to shampoo with whatever the White Coats bring.
Then again, No Poo is sweeping the nation – maybe even the world. Could it be that the “crazy” thing is not giving this a try?
