I have a minor confession to make. Do you remember when I was raving about the magic of e-cloths? And then when I was raving about the magic of my sponge that washes up without washing up liquid? Well, I’ve found the next big thing in showers. *drumroll*
Er, I suppose I should probably explain before you all think I’ve gone completely around the bend. You… might actually still think I’ve gone around the bend, but hey ho such is life.
A few of the people whose blogs I read avidly mentioned something called no ‘poo hair washing. It’s what it sounds like – washing your hair sans shampoo. Now, a few of these people suggest washing it with bicarb of soda and cider vinegar as a rinse to curb the interim greasiness, but one of these people suggested simply going cold turkey on the shampoo front. Also, I’ve read that that particular method has an unfortunate occasional result of hair breaking and falling out. I’m not mega-keen on that, to be perfectly honest.
And then the same person who said “why not lose the shampoo completely” said they had also ditched the soap, and turned out to smell vaguely of almonds. I don’t really know if I’d want to smell of almonds, but it’s certainly a fun idea. Maybe I’d smell of cocoa.
Anyway, I’m not going completely soap-free. I have so much stock-piled soap that I’m going to have to keep using it. But I might just consider going … half soap. Soapless most days. For Science! of course; what’s life without a little thrilling scientific experimentation? Obviously if I start stinking the place up I’ll just soap myself up rapidly, but I reckon the continued use of deodorant will prevent that. (hope so. Really really hope so)
I mean, I tried it today and apparently my hair still smelt of shampoo, so who the flip even knows.
Wish me luck!
