Hey world! So there is an entire no-poo movement going on right now as shampoos are seen to be stripping because of sulfates blah! Blah! Blah! However! I NEED shampoo and there are no two ways about it. I am no fan of co-washing weekly without a shampoo so I simply use a sulfate-free shampoo and all is right with the world. So I use the L’oréal Paris Sulfate-free Smoothing System shampoo and it works wonders!
After I finish pre-poo my hair, I hop in the shower and wash my hair in four braided sections . Using an applicator bottle, I apply the shampoo to my scalp because the thickness of my hair makes it difficult to get directly to my scalp especially after I am a few weeks post. I then work a dime sized portion of the shampoo into the braid itself and rinse and repeat of course.
Yes, I do this weekly because I think after I have pre-pooed my hair and washed it with a sulfate-free shampoo which I follow up with a conditioner and deep conditioner, How dry can my hair really get? So there’s nothing wrong with shampooing but you must ensure that you deal with the potentially harmful effects of shampoo if not utilized properly.
