How to No Poo
I keep my baking soda in a container in the shower. See other ways I use baking soda:
I put my apple cider vinegar (acv) in a spray bottle. Find it here. I dilute it half acv and half water. After I rinse the baking soda, I spray with the acv. Spray all of your hair from the scalp to the roots. Let it sit for about a minute. Then rinse. See other ways I use acv:
UPDATE: My No Poo was so popular and had so many questions that I created a book, The No Poo Solution to explain step by step exactly how to go No Poo and how to determine the right path to take for your own hair. Check it out here.

- Q: Wanting to try the no shampoo thing but I’m really freaked out about the oiliness while I transition. Do you think it would be easier to do in the winter to maybe prevent some of that? And what did you do with your hair on the really oily days? I’ve tried some homemade dry shampoos (baking soda, cornstarch etc.) but I hate the way they look in my dark hair. Any suggestions?
- A: The transition to no poo is crazy. I have a very casual job, so when my hair was crazy greasy, I just wore a hat. I don’t know if I would have made it through the transition if I had to appear professional. I have read some people say that their transition wasn’t bad. So I guess it just depends on your pH levels. I have used baking soda as a dry shampoo many times and agree about it not being good for dark hair. For using baking soda instead of shampoo, you rinse it out, so that’s not an issue. I don’t know about winter vs. summer. But it makes sense. It would make sense that if you normally wash your hair less in the winter, the transition would be easier then. And I’m sure less humidity and sweating would be more ideal. So I bet you’re right!

I started my natural journey several years ago after 3 years of back surgeries. Making some simple changes in my life stopped the seemingly endless back surgery cycle immediately and I’m now stronger and healthier than the doctors said was possible.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
